4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Lesley pushes you to find internships, which gets you great work experience. They prepare you for the real world. However, their classes are very easy and a lot of people just slide along without putting in too much effort.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Only ever lived on campus

1 College Junior

Party Scene: There is no party scene unless you enjoy standing in someone's apartment drinking beer talking to the same 15 people every time. If you want a party scene don't come here

Administration: Not many professors are strict about attendance, probably because they know half the students could care less about their classes

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It all depends on what you're looking for.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Lesley is not a party school so you would need to go somewhere else for that.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of food restaurants outside of campus that are within walking distance.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The school is strict when it comes to alcohol use.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid can get confusing sometimes if you don't stay on top of it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Brunch on Brattle is very good and they have a variety of options on the weekend.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It has a very close and homey atmosphere because it is such a small school. When you go everyone is very friendly and people like to help each other whenever they can.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is a great way to explore and experience the greatest parts of Boston and Cambridge

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The campus itself is friendly and there are decent people in the college. However, because it is a big school, I feel some things are systematized and not clear enough. For example, for transfer students, finding out how to present in critique weeks as design students and getting to know the place of the classrooms were hard at first.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got the Alpha Kappa Mu Scholarship but I wish I could get more aid in general. The College still has high tuition.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The restaurants at Uhall are the best. I love Japanese foods.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Nice neighborhood. There are plenty of things look and good schools around the Lesley Campus and housing.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Some good times, some lame times, whatever.

Campus Housing: It's not so much that the dorms are bad--some of them are actually nice--it's the administration (i.e. "housing process") that is the problem.

Students Often Come From

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Lesley provides a college experience that you won't be able to get anywhere else. While it is true that every school has its faults, Lesley included, overall most students would agree that—between the strong friendships, the small school size, and the knowledge gained for the future—the positives most definitely outweigh the negatives. While it isn’t the school for everyone, it is a great place for those looking to learn in an accepting, close-knit community. If you are searching for a large, boisterous, party school, however, Lesley probably isn’t going to be a good fit. But if you have an open mind and are truly committed to making a difference in the world, Lesley is well-equipped to give you the tools to do just that.

Upon graduation, students are well-prepared to enter the workforce, having the tools to prepare for other areas of post-graduation life, which is one reason Lesley is so unique. Part of this is due to the fact that Lesley is located in such a large, diverse city and has an open campus; students are really given the opportunity to become more independent and self-sufficient, which isn’t always the case at other colleges. The other part is due to the diversity of ideas and beliefs that Lesley and the Cambridge area offer, encouraging students to view the world more open-mindedly. While the University has its strengths and weaknesses, just as with any school, you won't be able to receive a more fulfilling instructional and social education than at Lesley.
