An innovative educational institution for nearly 160 years, Lasell is an independent coeducational college emphasizing the integration of professional and liberal arts programs leading to bachelor’s and master’s degrees. The campus is situated in suburban Newton, Massachusetts, eight miles from downtown Boston.
Founded in 1851 as the Auburndale Female Seminary, Lasell was the first two-year college for women in the country at a time when a woman’s place was considered to be in the home, not in the classroom. In 1932, Lasell officially became Lasell Junior College, and in 1989, the school was chartered as a four-year institution, Lasell College. In 1997, Lasell opened its doors to men. In 2000, Lasell Village, a vibrant living and learning retirement community sponsored by the College, was opened.
