As a school renowned for its Fashion programs, I was very happy to find that the college matched up to the expectations I had and needed, especially because I had no sewing experience before coming to attend.
The professors are excellent and very welcoming, and at the same time maintain a sense of professionalism that prepares us for the outside world!
Review Lasell College
I love being at Lasell. It is super important to work hard and be outgoing in your pursuit of activities and extracurriculars. I have been involved with many on campus organizations, making me feel connected with faculty as well as other students. As long as you are persistent and hard-working, this school has so much to offer!
As a small town girl, the adjustment to a life outside of the boons of southern Massachusetts was scary. While I looked at other schools in major cities and busy areas, I felt out of place in the environment of it all. When I first toured Lasell, I was amazed by the community aesthetic of it and the rural feel of it all. When I got in and met the teachers of my major first hand, I found out that they were all for their subjects and were still practicing them. The staff of the school, from dining hall to the facilities staff, are polite and genuinely devoted to their service.
