Each year on Marathon Monday, thousands of run­ners pass the Lasell College campus on their journey from Hopkinton to Bos­ton. As the runners turn from Route 16 to Com­monwealth Ave, hundreds of Lasell students line the road to cheer on the ath­letes. While most students are happy being spectators of the Boston Marathon, senior Meghan Missett dreams of running the 26.2 mile route in the future.

Missett, who is a mem­ber of the Lasell track and cross-country teams, typical­ly runs 3-12 miles each day. One of the routes she runs on a regular basis includes Com­monwealth Ave. at roughly the 17.5-mile mark of the marathon she hopes to com­pete in some day. More…

Letter to the editors: Another look at model size Reply

Dear Editors,
Although it’s true the Fashion Department does not turn away models because of their size, neither are students directly encour- aged to use larger models.

Also, the use of larger models is difficult, not only because there are very few plus-sized models who end up in the LOOKBOOK, but also because students don’t learn how to de- sign for people of ALL sizes, here meaning thin versus plus-sized. Many times, students leave Pattern Generation 1 (the basic pattern draft- ing class for design students) confused about how to actually draft patterns, due to the teaching styles of certain professors. Sophomores tell freshmen “Don’t bother saving your patter ns because they’re wrong anyway. You’ ll have to redo them next year.” More…
