Making a dorm room feel like home

By Holly FeolaOpinions Editor

All photos were taken by Holly Feola.

This cute wooden glass frame was a graduation gift and features some of my highlights from when I was in high school. I’ve had the same photos in the frame for the past 3 years, but what I like about this frame is that they can easily be switched out.

When a college student first enters a college dorm room, it’s empty and lacks any personalization. To help liven the dull space, I like to fill it with photos and quotes that bring a smile to my face. I find that photos make a space feel more like home and add a personal touch.

The Laser and their room: Welcome to my galaxy

By Ruth KehindeDigital Editor

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, residential students are spending a great deal of their college career in their rooms. Since I’m in my dorm room majority of the time, I try to make it a wholesome place to spend my senior year. Enter the depths of my room, filled with various abstract decorations, crystals and childhood memories that reflect who I am as a person.

This alien painting was a Christmas gift, and an alien balloon on top of my TV emphasizes my love for the unknown. My black belt and Scorpio tapestry complement each other. This area describes me as an alien that can defend herself while being one of the hardcore and personally, most awesome water signs in the zodiac.

With COVID-19, upcoming commencement for seniors and growing amounts of classwork, students may have forgotten the Lasell that they love. They may have forgotten why they believed Lasell is the right college for them. Despite regulations on campus activities, Lasell still maintains many of the factors that students find attractive.

“You should be able to discuss your sexuality and what you like and don’t like in an open way. It’s not wrong, it’s not bad, it’s not shameful.”

Miriam Clark is a nurse practitioner at Lasell University. I had the opportunity to discuss sex education with her, via zoom. Working on a college campus, Clark is aware that students are in fact having sex, regardless of the social distance policy. Aside from roommates, students do have people in their “maskless bubble” that they spend their time with. Students are in relationships or are exploring. Now we all know social distancing is important in flattening the curve, however people are naturally sexual beings.
