College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Not there long enough to decide.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I do not find the boys attractive, but that is because I am not into the hipster scene.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: People are very friendly at Lesley. There are lots of people with similar interests, no matter what yours may be, so it's easy to make friends. People are so outgoing! I'd say it's a pretty laid-back campus dress code wise. Most people (guys and girls) are pretty casual. Which is nice. I like being able to show up to class not feeling like I'm in a fashion face off.

Guys & Girls: Arts school....yup. Guys tend to the leftward leaning...and girls are pretty artsy indie types. Liberal arts college mix that would expect. Few jocks thrown in...it's a mix up of people.

Until 2005, Lesley University was exclusively a women’s college. While the school is now coed, there are still many more females than males; the ratio currently stands at about 80 to 20, though the University is working hard to try to even this out. This lopsidedness tends to affect heterosexual relationships on campus, as there are so few males, but it's less of a problem for those interested in pursuing homosexual relations. As many of the majors at Lesley are in the fields of education and human services, the students Lesley attracts tend to be very open and accepting of others.

Being in Cambridge, a city famous for being very liberal, many of the students have very progressive and liberal views. These liberal views and attitudes also cause Lesley to be a rather open campus when it comes to sexuality; all forms of sexuality are represented, and students generally aren’t afraid of being open in that regard. Also, since Lesley University also contains the Art Institute of Boston, and Lesley College has majors such as expressive arts therapy and art therapy, a large portion of students tends to be on the artsy or hipster side, though this isn’t true of everyone.

Social Scene
Students at Lesley tend to be very outgoing and friendly. There are a lot of opportunities for interaction during meals, classes, and on-campus events. Students also enjoy venturing off campus into Cambridge or Boston to go dancing, see a movie, eat out, and do many other things the city has to offer.
Hookups or Relationships?
In general, there are more hookups than relationships on campus. However, this isn't true of all students, as some do end up in long-term relationships with other Lesley students. Being in Cambridge, many students do venture off campus to look for relationships with people from other local colleges. Basically, no matter what you are looking for (hookups, a relationship, casual dating), you can find it either at or around Lesley.
Dress Code
One of the great things about Lesley is the complete lack of any dress code; students wear pretty much whatever they like, whenever they like. Outfits for class range from sweatpants and a T-shirt to dresses and heels to jeans and a sweater; basically, a student could walk by in a tutu, and no one would be fazed. When going out, students tend to be a little more dressed up, though this isn't always the case, as it varies from student to student.
