Campus Involvement

I’m a certified yoga instructor and teach yoga classes on campus at the Lewis Center. I’m also a part of the American Marketing Association.  

Lessons Learned

I’m minoring in marketing because I enjoy analyzing the market and the creativity that comes with learning how to apply that knowledge to develop marketing materials and strategies. As a member of the Integrated Business Program, my teammates and I are learning how to create and operate a small business, sell real products, and then donate the profits from our sales to charity. 

A Whole New World

Meeting people and making lifelong friends has been the best part of university life. There is so much diversity on campus and I’ve met people who come from different backgrounds who have a variety of interests and personalities. Because of them, I’ve been able to expand my knowledge and learn new perspectives on life.

Good Eats

When I’m not in class or teaching yoga, I like going across the street to Nambah Coffee to get a drink with friends.

What is the best way to make new friends at University of La Verne?

Getting involved! Even as a commuter student, I was able to make friends in class, by working with my teammates in the Integrated Business Program, and teaching yoga. I’ve also met alumni and graduate students through yoga—it’s been fun getting to know them and hearing their stories.

Commuter Life

I’m a commuter student, so I truly enjoy the time I get to spend on campus. It’s a beautiful place to learn and grow, and I like how small class sizes give you the chance to get to know your professors and other students.

Family Matters

My sister graduated from University of La Verne with a degree in business. She had a great experience here and I knew this would be a good path for me to follow as well
