I transferred from a Cal State to La Verne, it was the best decision I could have made. The professors are extremely helpful, and the labs are very interesting. I can assure you, you will learn a lot here.
Nayeli from Corona, CA
The University of La Verne is a great university to attend because the class sizes are small enough to be able to interact with everyone, especially Professors. I find that it is easier to learn in a small classroom setting. What I love most about ULV is their beautiful campus, how friendly staff is, and how everyone knows each other.
