Part of living on campus means relying on the dining services to cook up something delicious three meals a day. After the breakfast, lunch and dinner rush in the dining hall, you may head to class or go back to your dorm feeling stuffed, but have you ever thought about what happens to the leftover food?

When strolling through Winslow at night, students can hear the melodies of Lasell’s a capella group, the Spartones.
Founded in 2013 by Lasell alum JR Costello, the Spartones have firm roots within the Lasell community. President Sarah Lindquist and Vice President Danny Burns could not clarify the significance of the name “Spartones.”

Rosemary Leger, 2016 Lasell graduate and current Editorial Assistant at Condé Nast’s Brides Magazine, returned to Lasell Nov. 27 to speak about her experience breaking into the fashion industry as part of the Fashion Connection Club’s ongoing speaker series.
Having never been a city girl nor a fan of weddings, working for one of the country’s top bridal magazines in New York City just months after graduating was the last place Leger foreseen herself ending up. After a brief stint working in Public Relations and a few other positions that helped her find her footing in the industry, Leger landed a position as a Fashion Assistant at Brides Magazine in the fall of 2016.
