Alexandra Charron - 7/18/2019
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018
"I decided to go to Lesley University since I was transferring from community college. I loved the location, the degree program was what I was looking for, and I was able to play volleyball. While Lesley was a beneficial experience for me in some ways, the financial burden was not worth it."

Graduation Year: 2016
"The community at Lesley was really strong and it was easy to find a group of friends. The college has a strong reputation for elementary education which is what drew me there. My professors were great and classes were small so they were able to build relationships with us. Over time it felt like the school officials started to care more about the art school and programs and classes offered in the liberal arts college started to decrease."

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2008
"Lesley University is a small urban school, but provides a quality foundation for students pursuing a degree in education. The professors have real world experience and a plethora of knowledge. I was consistently challenged to become the best educator possible and not settle for being adequate. Many of my skills as a teacher where developed or perfected while working towards my bachelors degree at Lesley University."

Meagan Brewster - 4/5/2018
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"I picked this school because I went from a large school of about 1,000 students in my class to 100 and greatly valued the difference. I was able to have close relationships to the teachers and get more effective attention than I would have in larger lecture halls. I gained mentors there that I still like to keep in contact with, because their influence and inspiration they gave me is priceless. I initially chose Lesley because I wanted to be an Art Therapist. However, my first class specializing in that subject made me realize that in wasnt as much of a partnership as I wanted with my patients. I switched to psychology and a minor in studio art to give me a broader spectrum to explore what other interests I wanted to persue. I took a mandatory biology class my first year, and I realized what an effective teacher he was. He was brilliant, with degrees from MIT and USC Berkeley, but was able to break complex concepts into easy to understand building blocks. It was the first time I felt curious and excited since my initial studies, and ended up with a minor in neuroscience. As I told him when I found my passion, he is the reason why I am where I am today. Teachers can be amazing mentors, and I find that the school size allowed me to create relationships that I wouldnt be able to elsewhere."

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015
"The resources in the print shop are great! Since class sizes are pretty small, you are able to form a very close relationship with your professors. Classes are roughly 3-6 hours long, so working in a minor might be a tad difficult - especially within the liberal arts college."
