Lasell College Reviews
I've been at Lasell College now for almost four years and I have nothing but good reviews about this school. I am a Communications major with a minor in Graphic Design and I feel like my professors really prepared me for the real working world. This college requires internships and through that everyone is able to work in their fields of study outside of the class room which is an amazing experience! The campus is adorably hidden in a quiet neighborhood and just eight miles out of Boston so you get the best of both worlds. The people I have met here will definitely be life long friends also. Having a smaller campus is great for making real personal connections that you can later use in life. The dining hall is always making sure that there is something to eat for everyone, whether you are a meat eater, vegan, gluten free, or have allergies. Overall, this college has given me some wonderful memories these past few years and I will be proud to graduate as a Laser!
As a graduate student at Lasell, I can say this college deserves 5 stars in terms of quality of education, campus beauty, class ratio and good professors. I heard from other students living on campus that the dorms are very nice and well maintained! Being 8 miles away from Boston is the best! No need to worry about traffic, parking and the city stress. I definitely recommend it to anyone!
As a graduating senior at Lasell, I wouldn't trade my experience here for anything. Going out of state for college can be scary but I immediately felt welcomed by the community and have grown into my own adult person over the past four years. The connected learning theory at Lasell allows students to bond with professors in their desired professional field and helps create connections outside of the classroom. I enjoyed the small class size and felt my ideas and opinions were well received by others. I have enjoyed living on campus in the well-maintained dorms and houses. The dining hall offers food at an institution-level quality, but there is always something for everyone and you learn to be creative. I highly recommend Lasell to graduating seniors in high school and students looking to transfer from their current university. It is a personal experience and worthy education you won't regret.
