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.

Professor Paul DeBole hosted a Skype call from Secret Service Agent, Clint Hill on February 28. Hill, an agent during the presidency of John F. Kennedy, was present at the time of Kennedy’s assassination on November 22, 1963.
Hill described the events that occurred during the presidential parade, as he perceived them. He was the first to react when shots were fired at the President and First Lady. He saw the president grab his skull and started to fall. “At that time, I had realized it was a gunshot,” Hill said. Just before he made it to the vehicle to attempt to cover the president and his wife with his body, Hill heard a third gunshot. He said, “I not only heard it. I felt it…”

The members of HerCampus served some tasty treats to the Lasell College community on February 14, 2019. Eight members gathered in the Hoag dormitory kitchen and created three types of treats, Oreo wands, grilled cheese and marshmallow pops. Their goal was to make enough money to buy shirts, and their end result allowed them to do even more.
The group needed to raise $100. HerCampus spent three days tabling outside Valentine Dining Hall, taking pre-orders for the event. They accepted both cash and Venmo, which helped the fundraising immensely. The first day’s sales were not as high as they expected, but when news of the event spread to the parent’s pages of Facebook the day of the event, order growth grew more rapidly than they could imagine.
Parents had ordered so many treats to send to their children that members of the club were forced to go back to the grocery store and buy more ingredients. Members said that this was overwhelming but that it brought in the funds that made the fundraiser so successful. Parents also left messages for the club, saying they loved the idea and thought it was a great gift to send to their kids.

PRIDE hosted Transgender Day of Remembrance in the Arnow Campus Center, Nov. 15. The event that brought attention to transgender issues featured Carter, a 24-year-old non-binary trans masculine man who shared his story of coming into his identity. Born a girl, he had known that he was trans from a very young age but didn’t get to learn about his identity until college. Most of his adolescence, he was encouraged to wear makeup and skinny jeans. His father would give him lectures on dating and boys.
