Across America, over 70 percent of colleges and universities require prospective
students to submit their scores from either the SAT or the ACT. In the fall of 2017, Lasell
made the choice to ditch this policy and became test-optional. This means students who wish to submit their test scores for consideration may do so. However, applications are still considered complete without.

A reason why many students choose to enroll at Lasell is our proximity to Boston. You can get on the Riverside MBTA stop and be in the city in under an hour. Students can work, intern and explore during the semester.
This video is an extension of the opinions piece story of, “The T on the shuttle.” The Chronicle’s editors came together to portray the experience that a Lasell University student may have while walking back on campus after the hours of the shuttle service. This experience was depicted through two scenarios from two students, showing the route they feel most safe to go toward. Dive into the “After Shuttle Hours” video to learn more.

The term “cancel culture” has been popularized over the past year, referring to negative online comments when a public figure is called out on unfavorable actions.Whether it’s from their past or present, canceling a person can have harmful results. However, help- ing them grow and learn from the mistakes they have made could help.
In 2018, allegations arose against “Guardians of the Galaxy” Director James Gunn after old tweets resurfaced. The tweets included jokes about rape, pedophilia, the Holocaust, and more. Gunn claims he’s not the same man he used to be, possibly after the negative results of cancel culture.

As the art director, my job is to create the physical newspaper. With the help of five section editors, two digital editors, an illustrator and an editor-in-chief, we put something out every month that covers topics from campus news to members of the Lasell community. Most of my team members are communication majors. But, once we start talking about concentrations, things get a little different. I am a communication major with a concentration in creative advertising. The majority of my counterparts are journalism and media writing concentrations.
