A letter to the Class of 2020: Professor Kinsky Reply

To the 2020 Lasell University graduates:

You started your journey at Lasell College, as eager, curious, possibly nervous, young students. You might not have known how strong, flexible and resilient you were back then. The last four years have proven these qualities in all of you. You have succeeded through many challenges, and overcome many obstacles. You have grown up in so many ways, through life experiences both good and bad, happy and sad, friendships, wins, losses and of course, education. You may have had new experiences with travel, internships, modeling, or industry-related connected learning experiences. Maybe you experienced snow for the first time…and the second, third, etc.  Maybe you have formed special connections with peers and faculty that challenged you and made you question things because of their different ideas, beliefs and perspectives. Now, four years later, on the other side of this journey, you leave as young adults and graduates of Lasell University.  More…
