Jillian - 01/26/2024

I’m so glad to be here. I started my education at Merrimack and thought I would have a culture more like this one. I love the feel and culture at the school with the staff and students. The surrounding community is safe and welcoming. I believe I can contribute and grow as part of the Lasell community. We are a university now so your page should adjust that but it’s all good.

Mylena - 05/22/2023

Lasell has given me many opportunities, that I would have not encountered if I had committed to another school. The tight knit community is a huge part of Lasell, and it really is what makes it so special. Not only are students close with one another, but you also get chance to build connections with the faculty here on campus.

Isabelle - 10/13/2022

As a current student of Lasell, I love attending this school! It has given me so many opportunities to learn and grow through hands-on experience in and outside the classroom, through clubs and leadership, and through the friends and connections I've made. Everyone here is very friendly and the school wants to see you succeed. You are not just a number. As a first-year student last year, the community was really welcoming and the staff and support really want to see students flourish. I would recommend for first-year students to get involved on campus as it really sets you up to make amazing friends and have fun!

Rebecca - 10/13/2022

Lasell is a great school. The faculty and staff have real world experience and connections, take time to get to know you, and really help you tailor your classes and projects to your interests and passions. The extra curriculars are also great for helping provide hands on experience that you can use in real world settings.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would tell myself to join clubs right away, to fill the hole that not being physically able to play soccer would make. If I had joined clubs and been more involved on campus right away, I would have had more fun during my freshmen year and would have been more confident in myself. I would have known that I am someone beyond just being an athlete, and that having once been an athlete does not define who I am- I can survive and be social without clinging to sports.

  6. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worst thing about my school is most likely the food. There isn't much variety and I basically live off pasta everyday. In a small city like Newton and with no car, you're basically forced to eat at the dining hall. This means the same basic food everyday.

  7. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about Lasell is the lack of school spirit. The clubs and organizations try to put on fun, interactive events, but a lot of the time, nobody even knows they're going on. Because we don't have a football team, we miss out on events surrounding games, but we do have other sporting teams. It would be nice if more people knew when games were going on so we could not only support our teams, but also have events for them. Although I am involved with clubs, I still want to cheer on my school.
