If you've got the idea that learning should be more than lectures in a classroom, we're right there with you.

Learning should be practical, connecting knowledge to real life. It should be exciting. It should connect what you know to what you do. It should give you the big picture as well as the details. It should happen everywhere, among people and ideas that are always in motion.

It should work for you.

And it should be moving you far beyond the next four years.

Knowledge in motion.

It's more than what you know. It's where you go with it.

Life at Lasell.

Of course, you don't have to go into Boston for excitement.

Concerts, movies, comedians, game shows, speakers, dances and charity events such as Relay for Life fill the campus calendar.

And Lasell loves to be outdoors.

Over fifty acres offers a lot of room to play flag football or Frisbee, enjoying the fresh air, or catching a varsity game. A boathouse on the Charles River is included!

In the winter, Lasell is just gorgeous in the snow.

Or you'll find students gathering at the Campus Center Café in the Arnow Campus Center, working out at one of the fitness centers, or cheering on the basketball team.

Or you can always just hang out "at home"

—with your new friends from all over the country and the world. Plenty of activities are planned right in the residence halls and houses.

Students work hard at internships, jobs, service and research projects, running campus clubs and events. They don't slow down often—but when they do, it's always among friends.

This is life at Lasell.

Having Boston as your backyard means ...

Everyone's out on Marathon Monday cheering on Boston Marathon runners right by campus. (Our Athletic Training students care for any injuries.)

It's easy to complete a class assignment by interviewing a vice president with Morgan Stanley or the editor of the New England Baseball Journal.
