Lasell Village

Lasell Village is a retirement community located on the Lasell College campus in Newton, Mass. It features a continuing education program affiliated with the college, and although it’s not the first retirement community to have such an affiliation, it is the first to require residents to participate in a continuing education program.

The course work offered by the community is designed to challenge the participants, and the topics covered are exercises in gravitas. Courses include “Contemporary Issues in International Relations,” “Crucial Court Cases in American History” and “Medicine and Dentistry: Perspectives in Art and History.”
