Lesley University is a private, coeducational university located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The school’s primary focus is on liberal arts and sciences, with a strong emphasis on arts education. If you choose to study at Lesley, you can expect to take classes such as photography or areas of concentration like art history or studio art.
If you’re looking for a school with a top-notch music program, Lesley University is where you should apply. The school has been named as one of the top five undergraduate schools for music education in the country by U.S. News & World Report and Lesley University graduates have gone on to win Grammy Awards and perform with bands like Pink Floyd and The Grateful Dead.
The city of Cambridge itself offers plenty of opportunities for students interested in art—the Fogg Art Museum and Harvard Art Museums are both within walking distance from campus and offer free admission for college students. The city also hosts numerous galleries specializing in contemporary art that are perfect places to spend an afternoon exploring new works by local artists or attending lectures by visiting experts.
The majority of Lesley’s students live off campus; over 90% do so during their first year at the school (and there is no limit on how many people can live together). Many find apartments close by where they can walk or bike to class each day; others commute from farther away but stay on campus for meals during weekdays so that they don’t have far to go when it comes time for dinner!
