Academics Rating

The class sizes at Lesley are great. they are small, usually 15-25, which would mean one on one time with your professor if you need it. While most teachers are good for the one on one time, some of them aren't. Some of the teachers you really have to push for them to take the time to meet with you. However, most of the professors are nice, they are very insightful and they really know what they're talking about. They find a way to make teaching fun. the workload, depending on what your major is, can be very overwhelming. It can stop you from really having a social life, sometimes you can't even get a break for yourself. A lot of the time with me, my homework keeps me up until 2 or 3 AM and then I have to get up the next morning and do it again. It feels almost as if the teachers forget you have other classes and other work with the amount they give you. Also, sometimes when there are projects or papers due, the teacher waits until about a week and a half before its due and then fully explains what to do, then they say, don't wait until the last minute to do this, but sometimes you don't have a choice. A lot of students, need to set a schedule for the semester, because without one, a lot of homework doesn't get done on time and a lot of students become in danger of failing a class.
