Lesley University Reviews
Review Lesley University
I have enjoyed my time at Lesley. It is in such a great area and ensures that you are prepared for whatever career you are pursuing by making it mandatory to take part in multiple internships. This gives you experience as well as allows you to make connections with people already active in your field. As far as things I would like to see change; as a commuter student I wish that there were more spaces for commuters to meet and interact more easily with campus life. Also, the food isn't the best and I know that it is difficult for people who live on campus to find a good variety of food. Other than that, I love the area and the enjoy the vibe of the school and would recommend it to others, especially those who are interested in the education and or art fields!
It's small. Personally, I thought as a quiet student I would enjoy the closeness of the community and sometimes I do but I tend to not. The students are very liberal, and if youre a LUCAD student, art is typically all about current events. Sometimes I feel that as a Lesey art student, I'm missing out compared to art schools that are majority art. The local area is fantastic, it's right on Mass Ave near all the local shops and close to two T-line stops to lead you right into Boston. The food is pretty good, and have a variety for those who are vegetarians. Dorms are nice too, esp since some are victorian houses that they renovated.
As someone who is passionate about social justice and good academic programs, I love attending Lesley University. It is an adjustment for some people, but I feel as though I'm constantly learning in and outside the classroom. The party scene isn't very big, but living in Cambridge and next to Boston, you don't need a party scene for the school. Fantastic overall.
