If you’re struggling on how to reset your sleeping cycle, here are five gradual steps that may help change when you catch your z’s:

Open Letter: Dear Sunflower

By Adam HallenbeckSports Editor 

 

Dear Sunflower,

 

When I think about that first time I saw you, I don’t think about what was going on in my life or where we were or really anything along those lines like normal people would think about. I remember your eyes. The blue that surrounds your pupil seems deep as an ocean, but that wasn’t what caught my eye. It was the beautiful yellows and slight orange accents sitting on top, creating what looks like a sunflower.

Open Letters: 10 Months

By Casey DiBariOpinions Editor

A one-sided history

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.
