Allie Talarico on #internationalwomensday Reply

It’s #internationalwomensday and we’re celebrating girl power! 1851 staff Megan Palumbo and Dana Sutcliffe got in contact with Lasell junior Allie Talarico, who is currently studying abroad at Franklin University in Lugano, Switzerland. Talarico has been enjoying her time exploring a different part of the world, and wants to share what it’s been like being a woman overseas.

“This is a photo my friend took of me in Siena, Italy. It was so stunning and surreal to look out over the countryside and be reminded that I was truly here, and that I was able to make studying abroad possible because I worked hard, saved all the money to fund the trip on my own, and had the incredible support of my family and my mom especially. This is one of the best life decisions I’ve ever made and I feel like I’m growing immensely here. Traveling abroad as a woman and as someone who has never traveled anywhere outside of the East coast has had its daunting moments, like the times we’ve gotten lost or had to go to the hospital, but the friends I’ve made and the adventures I’ve gone on so far are priceless. I’ve met so many people and so many women with beautiful, diverse stories about where they come from all over the world, what they’re studying, and who they want to be and what they want to do with their lives. It is so inspiring.”

Possible Merger: Student Feedback Reply

Cameron Brennan, junior sport communication major at Lasell College, may be the most level-headed of all. 1851 staff members Megan Palumbo and Dana Sutcliffe talked to 20 students about the possible merger between Lasell College and Mt. Ida College. When asked for his opinion, Brennan said, “The collaboration between the two schools would open up more options for students…until more information is brought up and given to the students, I don’t think I have an opinion as of yet, whether it’s for or against the students.”

Here’s a sampling that Lasell students told Palumbo and Sutcliffe after attending one of the two meetings this past Monday.  More…
