Lesley University Reviews

All Categories
This is a small and very isolated school. There is not a big social life at all, and the population is very very small. It is not rare to While the small class sizes are nice, there is not much if any diversity at Lesley. The classes are not challenging at Lesley, accommodations can and will be given for any reason at all. This is a great school for art, but for other types of education especially Psychology this is not a challenging and beneficial program. The professors are very kind and can become great mentors, but the courses are simply not difficult enough to cause challenge and greater thinking. I found myself to be very bored and not motivated in the classes. Cambridge is a great location!

The things I love most about Lesley is that the students are creative, accepting, empowered, and open-minded. People are expressive and not afraid to be themselves. The professors and faculty go above and beyond to help you and provide the best services that they can. The small class sizes allow for intimate interactions and I have yet to have a bad professor!
Taking online course with Lesley University. Everyone was so helpful when I was to transferring to the program here and so far all of my classes, professors and classmates have been wonderful! I am really excited to be continuing my education at an institution like Lesley University.
