On September 10, the Lasell Community gathered to celebrate the new status of Lasell University. The celebration included inflatable games, food and new swag for everyone from the youngest members of the community, students and even Lasell Village residents! The afternoon and evening hours were filled with great weather, fun and laughter to begin the new academic year.
A highlight of the block party were the giant inflatables!
