3 College Junior

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

4 College Sophomore

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

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 Freshman

Administration: Only really get involved if there is a big problem, or if you're reported a lot. Guest policy is basically non- existent.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Normal, I think. One thing that does strike me as a bit odd (not necessarily a bad thing, just unusual) is how lenient the guest policy is. You don't need to sign them in or out. The only reason you would need to interact with campus security is if they need to park on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

In general, Lesley is a very open and lenient school that emphasizes personal responsibility rather than instating strict policies. Students are expected to know and understand the rules of campus, and, as there is no guest check-in policy, have full responsibility for their visitors, as well. Strictness in regards to alcohol, drugs, and noise varies from dorm to dorm, as different CAs (community advisers) have different tolerances. Some CAs are very strict when it comes to following the rules, but generally they are reasonable people. As long as students aren’t being too loud, they are all set to do as they please; while parties do get broken up from time to time and underage drinking isn’t overlooked by the administration, most parties are only investigated if there is a noise complaint or people are publicly under the influence.

Strictness in regards to class attendance tends to follow Lesley’s belief that students do not need to be babied and should be responsible for themselves. In this way, professors will not hunt you down if you miss class, though missing class can greatly affect your grade in some courses. Overall, the atmosphere of Lesley is very easygoing, and many students go all four years without getting into any kind of trouble.
