What happened to “Campus Safety?” 2

By Nicole Yeager – 1851 Contributor 

The Lasell College Campus Police website states, “The safety of our community rests with all of us…. Problems can be prevented if Campus Police is contacted whenever one detects suspicious behavior or individuals. The best security is prevention”. Up until March 31, I believed that Campus Police wanted to keep me and my fellow students safe…I was proven wrong.

A one-sided history Reply

Marissa Gugala- News editor 

In honor of Women’s History Month, Brennan Library has displayed a series of photographs that feature well-known, female liberal politicians.  The display features headshots of four women who appear on the March edition of Rolling Stone Magazine: Ilhan Omar, Jahana Hayes, Nancy Pelosi, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  The display, though done in good faith is a catalyst for conservative marginalization.

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, to marginalize someone is “…to treat someone or something as if they are not important.”  Lasell has been doing their best to address issues such as racial marginalization on campus.  They have even implemented different programs in hopes of making students of color feel welcome on campus.

Relive the Disney magic Reply

By Rosa Del Carmen Gomez – 1851 Staff

When Disney live action reboots go to theaters, a wide range of ages can be seen sitting next to one another. I am the 21-year-old shushing kids in the theaters because I want to watch Belle dancing with the Beast while Mrs. Potts sings “Tale as Old as Time” in the background. As a child, I was obsessed with all things Disney… that has not changed.

Health Center: what’s up, Doc? Reply

By Holly Feola & John Maclean – 1851 Staff

Recently, some students have questioned the timeliness and thoroughness of health professionals in the Health Services office.

I think Health Services should open 10 minutes before their official hours to prevent patient waiting. Once, I arrived at Health Services at 8:20 a.m. No lights were on and there was no one there, despite center’s 8:30 to 4:30 hours. At 8:30 a man unlocked the door. Then, I waited five minutes for a nurse to check me. By opening a few minutes ear- lier, I would’ve been able to have my appointment when scheduled, rather than five minutes later.

Technology is a troubling temptation Reply

I was standing by the toaster waiting for my bagel when I tried making light conversation with the girl next to me, who was also waiting for toast. I mentioned how brave she was to be wearing Birkenstocks in 10 degree weather…but the conversation did not move past this. She didn’t even acknowledge that I was talking to her. The girl’s head was buried in her phone, unaware that I was two feet away talking and looking at her directly. It was in this moment that I became disappointed and at out annoyed with how disengaged college students have become, thanks to the trance their technologies send them into.
