When are the primary elections? How do I register to vote? What is an absentee ballot? All of these questions and more are founding pillars to the new campus initiative, Lasell Votes.

When students returned this September, they were met with a surprise when they arrived at The 1851 Grill to get their late-night dinner. Instead of the usual meal swipe for anything on the menu under $7.99, students learned that was only an option for five items; everything else they had to pay for with dining dollars.
