Eight years ago, Lasell created a program where incoming undecided students had the opportunity to create their own majors. These students did this by selecting humanity courses to see what students enjoyed studying and created a major out of the courses offered.
This changed when a student Samantha Dulac, Class of 2005, was not fully satisfied with her fashion classes, but she still enjoyed fashion and wanted to incorporate journalism into her degree. After combining classes and working with professors of both departments, Dulac graduated Lasell with a degree in Fashion Communication which is now an offered major.

Lasell College Radio, the rugby team, and the Campus Activities Board have joined together for a “No-Shave November” fundraiser benefitting the Lasell Fund. During the month of November, LCR collected $2.00 donations outside of Valentine Dining Hall to “sponsor” a rugby player in his quest to grow out the best beard.
At a grand finale event in the dining hall on December 5 at 6 p.m., a winner will be chosen from the group of participants. The winning player’s “sponsors” have a chance to win an Amazon gift card worth 25 percent of the proceeds. The remaining 75 percent will benefit the Lasell Fund.

Meaghan Spillane, a junior psychology major, is interning at the Make-A-Wish Foundation this semester.
What role do you play there?
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.
