Lasell University Reviews
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.
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!
