Lasell College

Current Student

Lasell is a great tight knight community! There is a friendly face everywhere you go on campus and some many opportunities to connect with others that have similar interests of yours.

Defiance College

May 17, 2023

We do not recommend Defiance College to prospective students and parents. This college is an expensive, private college that has increased tuition by $6,000 for 2023. The administration is not responsive at all to parents or students. When issues arise, the president and vice president ignore the issues. Their main goal seems to be avoiding lawsuits. Our student had a positive experience with the Director of Residence Life and the Residence Assistants. The professors were very good and overall we thought the academics were good. However, we did notice classes are canceled often. Our student had 20 classes canceled in one semester alone. The residence halls are okay but fairly old. The two main dorms at least allow you to bring your own window A/C unit. Finally, the food was terrible. The dining hall and The Hive had several county Health Department violations when we checked. The dining hall should offer more fresh fruit options instead of canned fruit.

University of Puget Sound

May 16, 2023

Amazing professors who genuinely care about their students but also are super smart and super challenging. Really cool opportunities to do hands on work in the community and in research on campus. Friendly classmates.
