My first impression of Lasell was when I was first on campus at the end of my junior year of high school. Much like everyone else, I was on a tour and the guides talked about the community here and all the super kind people on campus. They also talked about the school as if it was just an amazing community to be a part of.
Fast forward to the start of my first year of college, I see exactly what they were talking about. The professors care about students and there’s just a huge positive vibe that glows through campus. Walking to and from classes, I see people I’ve never met before but they say hello and if you need help, they don’t hesitate. While it’s hard to be able to meet new people in this new college setting, especially with COVID, people are still willing to introduce themselves and have conversations with people.
It has been hard to meet people without having people in their rooms and having to wear masks. Overall, I have really enjoyed my first few weeks here; it has been nice to have independence to make my own decisions and live on my own. Another one of my impressions is that while the professors care about their students; students need to be able to fend for themselves and speak up for help or if they need anything. I have also noticed that there are a lot of places to help students, whether that means becoming more organized or getting a tutor in the AAC in the library or if it’s the Counseling Center helping people adjust to live on their own. Overall, the school is about being there for students and the betterment of the students.
