Lasell University Reviews
My daughter went to Lasell and was able to get a full time job 4 months after graduation. The few times that I was able to visit the campus it was always very clean, friendly, and great food! We even went 10min away to a downtown area that had great food/bars. She said that she loved her whole experience and I was so comfortable having her there. The campus police were so nice and frequently around to help in any way possible. IF there was ever danger, an email would be sent out to the students and parents. I always felt in the loop. If I had more kids I would definitely send them to Lasell because my child got a great education and also made some amazing connections.
It is a small campus, really easy to get to know each others! The student here is really nice! They all super friendly and love to do thing. You always can find thing to do during the weekend because they have a lot of activity to do. Food in here is OK, at least they made their own pizza dough that is a highlight. Fried rice is great! Sometime they will have different event, such as Oscar night, Chinese New Year celebration and international culture week. A lot of different thing when the student to experience different culture and different event on campus.
Transferring to Lasell my sophomore year I was a bit skeptical, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it as much as I liked my previous school. I was also super nervous about having to start over but I was worried for nothing. I fit in no problem and made friends easily. Everyone at the school is super friendly, welcoming and accepting. It's a great environment and has great people to be around. I'm involved in a sports team and have various jobs on the campus. I like Lasell so much I wanted to be more involved in the opportunities that the school offers. This school is great for anyone! Just come see for yourself.
