Am learning a lot
Lasell College offers many appealing and intriguing courses designated to benefit your knowledge of your major. Also, the student to teacher ratio is roughly 15:1, so students get more attention in the classrooms.
Am enjoying being here
When finding a school, one of the most important aspects is location. Lasell is located in the lovely town of Newton, ranking 4th in the safest cities in the USA. The campus is about a 10-15 minute walk from one side to the other. The dorms are comfortable and the student life is exciting. Athletic events are big, especially our basketball games, in which everyone gets dressed up in our college colors. Also, the T is a 5 minute walk from campus so you can always ride into Boston.
Bang for the buck
In attending Lasell, you get a great education, great living conditions, a variety of athletic and extracurricular opportunities, a buffet every time you go to the cafe, constant social events (including, one of my favorites, dances), and great facilities like the gym, the library, and the campus center.
Tips for prospective students
You should definitely visit any school you are interested in attending. For me, I was hooked the first time I visited Lasell. It's the perfect school for me. Perfect size, educational program, and especially the people.
Great for these types of students
Lasell college is great for any type of student. Check it out for yourself!

Lasell offers many interesting courses, that I plan on participating in. The class sizes are absolutely perfect, I love that all my professors know my name. Campus life is amazing, there are so many things to do!
Tips for prospective students
The first week is scary for every freshman, but everyone is in the same boat, so that is the time to make friends. Leave your door open so people can stop by and say hi. Professors here are extremely nice, and understanding.
Academic Rigor
The courses can be challenging, but a lot of them are interesting and fun to take!
Dorm Life
I live in one of the newer dorms, and it is suit styled. It is great, we have our own privet bathroom, and sinks in our room. There is a kitchen on my floor, an a common room.
Food and Dining
The dining hall was just rebuilt, so it is very nice. There are many options for food, you will never go hungry.
What to do for fun
For fun, I play sports. I also joined some clubs, which keeps me busy, and on the weekends I usually take the T into Boston and explore and shop with my friends.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Family weekend has many traditions, and the boat races being the biggest one. There are so many more traditions that I have yet to learn!
Great for these types of students
This school is great for students that are serious about getting a great education. It is great for people who like interacting in class, and likesto connect with their fellow peers.
Clubs and Activities
There are so many clubs and activities I wish that I could join, but I simply have no time, because there are a ton of them! From Psychology Club, to Photography Club, there are just so many.
Greek Life
There is no Greek Life here.
Campus Safety
I always feel safe on campus. There are actual campus police, so they are much more equipped than campus safety. I believe this campus is very safe. And this town is ranked 3rd safest town in the country.
