| There is no academic competition in this school at all, because most of the students seem to be not creative or not innovate or not motivated,and IQ below the normal level of peers. To be honest,they do have a bunch of excellent professors out there in this school,however,without good students,even the best teacher in the world cannot help.Think about it,if a professor asks for a simple question then no one or so few seem to know, what kind of class atmosphere it is like? If you are that kind of student goes for real academic success, this place does not fit you. |

| I am currently a freshman at Lasell and I have to say I am very, VERY dissapointed. I was so excited to come here. The open houses, Lasell Day, and Orientation made me so pumped. Don't be fooled. I came here to find out that this school is the opposite of what I thought it would be. I had just an average gpa in high school, but I worked really hard, and had a job and an internship to get into Lasell since it said the average gpa was a 2.9. I had about a 2.7 and I got in and they gave me a scholarship. I was so happy. I came here to find out that people around me had a 1.8 gpa in high school (D+) and they got the same scholarship as me. It makes me feel really bad. Lasell obviously doesn't have standards There are a lot of unmotivated students who could care less about an education. The education here is a joke anyways. I was challenged more in my high school classes. Lasell is a good school for dumb alcoholic kids who want to drink their lives away at parties and do nothing else with their time. For kids who are motivated and actually want a good education and hardworking friends, don't come here. The people here who have fun are those people who had a D+ gpa in high school. Yes, Lasell is right outside of Boston. But nobody wants to go into Boston because everyone likes to just do nothing in their dorm rooms and stay on campus. I thought the kids here would be so different. I am planning on transferring as soon as possible. |

| I have just finished my first year at Lasell and I have to say it was quite interesting. I read comments on this page before I went in the fall and to be honest I was worried. Most of the comments are very true about the school. |
To start, the food is awful its the same thing every night for dinner, chicken. The pizza is alright and the stir fry station is sometimes decent.
The professor at this school for the most part are very nice and helpful, but some are absolute airheads and you wonder how they even graduated college.
The dorm life is decent, I lived in McClelland and it wasn't all that bad except they wouldn't fix things broken in the bathroom for weeks.
The party life is alright, I read that most people said its awful but it really isn't all that bad except for the most part the parties are sauna's. There are some off campus parties that are pretty fun.
The most negative part that I read on most of these comments are that the people are horrible. That is completely false. Basically everyone I met at school was very nice and accepting but don't get me wrong there was the occasional jerk. The school is very cliquey especially when it comes to the teams. I know this because I am apart of a team and hung out with primarily only kids on my team but I also had lots of friends that were either on other teams or did not play sports.My advice for students planning on coming to Lasell is that your time at Lasell is what you make of it. My first semester I was a very close-minded person and didn't try to make many friends but my second semester I was more outgoing and had an absolute blast. If you are not willing to put in the effort to have a good time you are not going to.
