First Year Pulls Back the Curtain Reply

By Khiandra Brown

My first impression of Lasell was fairly different from others. The reason I say this is because my very first time visiting the campus was the day of orientation! Yes, it’s true. I paid my deposit, didn’t attend accepted student day and orientation was my first time seeing the campus. Although it was pretty risky, I’m so glad I made the decision to attend. I had so much fun during orientation; I made some great friends and even met my roommates. They are by far the sweetest people I’ve ever met!

First Year Confession Reply

By Emily Hong

It’s been a little over a month since I started here at Lasell. I’m just your typical freshman – I live in Woodland, dread waking up for my 8 a.m. and eat the same foods from the dining hall. I also have a little bit of a Red Bull addiction. I’m not complaining though! It’s been a fun, busy and tiring month but we all made it and we’re doing pretty well so far. Here’s the top three ways my life breaks down these days:

9 Ways to Decorate Your Dorm on a Budget Reply

By Hannah Akerly – 1851 Staff

  1. Pictures & Polaroids: A great way to surround yourself with all the fun memories you’ve had with your friends.
  2. Tapestries: The perfect way to make your room look that much closer to an ad for Urban Outfitters.
  3. String lights: They set a relaxing mood and keep you from having to turn on that obnoxious fluorescent light.
  4. Throw pillows: Only here for decoration, but they make your space look so much more put together. Plus, there’s never a limit on the number of throw pillows that qualifies as too many!
  5. Rugs: No one likes having a boring floor, so why not spice it up with a fuzzy rug? Besides adding some dimension, it’ll make your space look bigger too.
  6. DIY wall art: Save money by painting your own wall art! Find supplies at a local supply store (like Michael’s) and be proud to hang up your hard work for everyone to see.
  7. Letter light boxes: So you can share all your favorite lyrics, inspirational quotes or even just your favorite college bible quote… “She is clothed with leggings and oversized t-shirts and she naps without fear of the future.” -Probably College 31:25.
  8. Throw blankets: So you can snuggle up with that special person in your life or that other special person…Netflix.
  9. Plants/Succulents: Sometimes you spend hours (or even days) in your dorm room, so why not bring the outdoors inside to enjoy?
