With her soulful, enigmatic voice that is comparable to popular artists such as Adele, Lana Del Rey, and Sky Ferreira, and a single that has consecutively held a steady spot at No. 5 on the Billboard Top 100 chart for Pop Music, it is hard to believe that New Zealander, Ella Yelich O’Connor, who goes by the stage name, Lorde is only 17-years-old. Her debut album, “Pure Heroine,” was released September 30th in the U.S., making Lorde an international sensation. More…

“You’re looking at my jacket and thinking that the poor homeless man has come to entertain us,” joked mentalist Sean Bott during his performance at Lasell in late October. Bott did an incredible job of mixing humor with jaw-dropping mentalist feats in an interactive and engaging performance in deWitt Hall.

In each of his mentalist feats combined with continuous humor, Bott used different members of the small audience. Since there were under 30 in attendance, almost everyone got to be involved, which was put on by Campus Activity Board (CAB). More…

Meaghan Spillane, a junior psychology major, is interning at the Make-A-Wish Foundation this semester.

I put together volunteer projects, some data entry, which isn’t really that fun, and anything my supervisor asks me to do…a Girl’s ‘Sweet 16’ needed decorations, if there is an event at a restaurant… I do anything. A 14 year old boy wants to go to Disney with his parents and younger brother. I just found out that he will be going in February. I met him once, so it is really exciting. More…

The ACA “fumbles”… Again- On November 16, Satuday Night Live aired a sketch mocking the President’s recent failures by touting “PAXIL” an antidepressant that helps with those second term blues. As always, SNL’s satire focuses on the obvious: Obama’s biggest blunder. Sure, there was Bengahzi, the IRS scandal, and who could forget Snowden? But what Obama has done this time is lie to the American people and there is no way to talk yourself out of that one. More…
