June 10, 2015

U.S. News and World Report has reaffirmed Lasell's place in the Short List of Top 10 Colleges with the highest rates of internship participation. In an article published June 9, 2015, the magazine shared information about the Colleges on the list and their commitment to internships.

All graduates from Lasell are required to have had at least one internship experience.

The U.S. News Short List, separate from the magazine's overall rankings, is a regular series that magnifies individual data points in hopes of providing students and parents a way to find which undergraduate or graduate programs excel or have room to grow in specific areas.

On average, 38 percent of the Class of 2013 participated in an internship during their undergraduate careers, according to data reported by 314 ranked colleges and universities in a U.S. News survey. At the 10 schools with the highest rates of participation, at least 88 percent of undergraduates completed an internship.

Other colleges on the list include Bennington University in Vermont and Bentley University in Waltham. Mass.
