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.
My experience with Lasell University has not been the best. My freshman year was very hard due to not seeing much diversity, and just learning how to adapt to the college life. I encountered people who were nice but also very rude, including faculty. After meeting a small group of friends my second semester went by a bit more smoothly. This year (my sophomore year) has not been the easiest. Transitioning online has made this experience by far worse than I could ever imagined. Being a Fashion major, the hands- on route is preferred. With that option not available I feel as if I am missing a huge part of my college journey. In addition to not getting the full experience, the professors do not seem prepared at all to teach classes in an online format. Information is often miscommunicated, assignments are unorganized and not updated, and everything is just overall confusing. And to some professors, when there are complaints about the assignments being assigned the student is to blame.
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.
