Fresh ideas: Switch up meals during finals Reply

 Reginah Sanyu-1851 staff 

The campus center has healthy options that fast food junkies would not appreciate, especially when in need of comfort food during these difficult times of finals. That is why the tostada bowl is getting a change.

When it comes to your order, you can always have it your way as long as a request is made. Ordering Dragon Chef and Dominos regularly gets very costly. Give the tostada bowl at the Campus Center a makeover, especially for the moments when all you want is greasy comfort food. The tostada bowl has never been tastier. More…

Schedule grid changes in spring, common hours next fall Reply

Kayli Hertel – Features Editor

In early October, Lasell released a notice that the spring schedule grid will be changed. Also, next fall, common hours will start at 2 p.m. and end at 3:15 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays instead of from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.

According to James Ostrow, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, this change stemmed from different factors. One was the use of classrooms and accommodating a “need for 2-day/75 minute periods.” Another factor revolves around the ability “to relieve pressure on the dining hall during peak lunchtime periods,” said Ostrow.

Editor’s Corner: You Do You Reply

Yeah, I bought One Direction concert tickets more than a year in advance. My love for those five boys is insane, a little
costly, and quite frequently is the punch line of many jokes.

As I am about to graduate college and I’m looking at the life lessons I have learned, I realize I don’t care if someone wants to make fun of my music choices, because everyone has that one thing they could classify as guilty pleasure, if only they felt guilty about it. It is okay to like what you like, and not care what anyone else has to say about it. In this society, we are too concerned with what everyone else thinks of us; who cares if you marathon “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” if you enjoy it, don’t let someone else poking fun at that get you down.
