Four years ago I chose University of La Verne as my college
of choice. This decision was definitely not easy, but one of the most important
decisions I have made.
When I was first visiting ULV at their Spotlight Weekend event
for admitted students-- to be completely honest-- I absolutely hated the school
and only stayed at the Spotlight Weekend for an hour. I wanted bigger and
better things than a school called La Verne.
So, then how did I end up at ULV? When I looked beyond the
surface at my two choices of colleges and made my pro/con lists, I realized
that the University of La Verne was exactly the type of college I would feel
the most comfortable attending. The small class sizes, the fact that faculty
know who you are even if you have never taken a class with them, and sense of
community and family that La Verne exhibits, were all things I loved.
Choosing University of La Verne is a decision I will never
regret. I might not have joined Phi Sigma Sigma or met my little sapphires. I
would not be the person I am today if I had chosen a different path.
As a graduating senior now participating in Spotlight
Weekend, I hope that everyone has the same great experience I did at the
University of La Verne.
