“You’re looking at my jacket and thinking that the poor homeless man has come to entertain us,” joked mentalist Sean Bott during his performance at Lasell in late October. Bott did an incredible job of mixing humor with jaw-dropping mentalist feats in an interactive and engaging performance in deWitt Hall.

In each of his mentalist feats combined with continuous humor, Bott used different members of the small audience. Since there were under 30 in attendance, almost everyone got to be involved, which was put on by Campus Activity Board (CAB). More…

Meaghan Spillane, a junior psychology major, is interning at the Make-A-Wish Foundation this semester.

I am in the Wish Development Department. I put together volunteer projects, some data entry, which isn’t really that fun, and anything my supervisor asks me to do…a Girl’s ‘Sweet 16’ needed decorations, if there is an event at a restaurant… I do anything. A 14 year old boy wants to go to Disney with his parents and younger brother. I just found out that he will be going in February. I met him once, so it is really exciting. More…

The ACA “fumbles”… Again- On November 16, Satuday Night Live aired a sketch mocking the President’s recent failures by touting “PAXIL” an antidepressant that helps with those second term blues. As always, SNL’s satire focuses on the obvious: Obama’s biggest blunder. Sure, there was Bengahzi, the IRS scandal, and who could forget Snowden? But what Obama has done this time is lie to the American people and there is no way to talk yourself out of that one. More…

When a student first visits Lasell College and hears “every student is required to do an internship to graduate,” there is not much excitement. The idea of doing a part-time job for free, in return for college credit is not everyone’s dream.

But when the same student hears Lasell College was ranked in U.S. News’ “10 Colleges With the Highest Rate of Student Internships,” in 2013, the desire to complete an internship seems to outweigh the dreadfulness. More…

Some may know Diane Austin as the Vice President of Student Affairs who is in her 19th year here at Lasell. “I came to Lasell because of the wonderful opportunity to take on responsibility and to grow,” said Austin. She describes her days at Lasell as challenging, exciting, and always changing.

What some might not know about Austin is her love of traveling and fashion. Austin caught the “travel bug” after almost 14 years of being married and realized there was so much more she wanted to experience. More…

Once you walk into Johnny’s Luncheonette, a short walk from the Newton Centre T stop, you will feel like you are being transported back to the 60’s with the restaurant’s old-school American vibe.

The ambience of the diner is comparable to the very popular chain restaurant Johnny Rocket’s, but less theatrical and with more of a simple hometown vibe. The music playing was reminiscent to the time period and was relaxing while still being upbeat. More…
