"What a fabulous adult education school! When I went back to Lesley, I hadn't been in school for many years and was worried that I'd feel out of place. Lesley was the perfect place to go! Their adult learning population is vast, and I felt very comfortable – not to mention that I learned so much! I would recommend it highly."
— Cynthia Freedman, Bachelor of Science in Management
