Life at La Verne
Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Orientation Week Leader.
Abraham Campus Center and my friends’ dorm rooms.
My favorite class so far has been Human Anatomy with Professor Patricia Caldani. I learned about all of the parts of the body, and although there are separate systems, they all work together to make the body function. It was challenging because it was a lot of information to take in, but it solidified my dream to become a physical therapist.
I love the breakfast at Barbara’s Place—tater tots and eggs! I also like In-N-Out and Shogun, which are about a 5-minute drive off campus, and House of Wings, which is just up the street.
I work at the Information and Services Desk in the Abraham Campus Center and as a teaching assistant in the Biology Department.
The little private cubicles in the library.
Pretty often! It is important to get to know professors and supervisors because they could possibly help me in my future career field with connections and getting to where I want to be in life.
I used to work in the entertainment department at the Disneyland Resort. From this job, I learned how to budget my time for a 1-hour commute and my money for gas, food, etc. In addition to working there, I was taking 16 units during the academic semester. Balancing both taught me quickly how important it is to budget money, prep meals when possible, and always keep myself organized.
In between classes, I’m studying, napping, eating, or working depending on what my schedule is for the day.
