Lasell College was founded in 1851 by John Lasell as the Auburndale Female Seminary. The school was originally located in Auburndale, Massachusetts and was created as a place of learning for young women to receive an education. Lasell quickly gained a reputation for providing quality academic instruction and became a popular option for many families. In 1910, the school changed its name to Lasell Seminary for Young Women. By this time, the school had grown significantly, offering students courses in music, art and physical education in addition to traditional academic studies. In 1949, the college changed its name to Lasell Junior College and began offering two-year degrees in addition to certificate programs.

In 1965, the college became accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges as a four-year institution and changed its name once again to Lasell College. In 1972, the college opened its first residence halls on campus and began accepting male students into their degree programs. Over the next few decades, Lasell continued to grow both academically and physically with new buildings being added on campus including a library, student center and more residence halls. Today, Lasell College is a thriving institution that offers undergraduate degrees in over 50 different areas of study as well as several graduate degree programs. Check Topmbadirectory for a list of MBA colleges in North Dakota.
