The University of La Verne; a four-year, comprehensive, private university, was founded in 1891. This Carnegie 1 Research Institution is located in northeast Los Angeles County in Southern California, just minutes away from Los Angeles, Pasadena and Orange County. La Verne is a vibrant, family-oriented community with a safe, small-town atmosphere that cherishes both its history and its vision for the future. This prime location enables our students to get involved in research projects and internships and take advantage of local cultural, intellectual and recreational resources while based in a safe, quiet and distraction-free environment. The University's mission to provide a people-centered, values-based, quality education has remained unchanged since its founding over 120 years ago. The University is ranked by "Forbes Magazine" among the top 15% of "America's Best Colleges" and a "U.S. News and World Report" Tier One National University. La Verne offers over 50 undergraduate majors and over 15 graduate degree programs. Nestled in the green foothills of the majestic San Gabriel Mountains, the University is just a short excursion away from world-class surfing beaches, challenging ski slopes and desert recreation areas. The location of the campus makes visits to renowned museums, cultural events, amusement parks and shopping centers easy. Average Temperatures Low (winter): 55°F/13°C High (summer): 75°F/24°C
