Four-legged friend visits campo

By Meghan CarrollNews Editor

Saturday, October 10, Campus police had an unexpected visitor stop by. In the early morning, Lieutenant Steve Bradley was in his office getting some work done when he heard a smash of glass. Thinking there was an intruder or someone purposely causing a disturbance, he ran to where he heard the noise. He then saw a deer walking away from the scene. The deer took the liberty to smash his way through the Putnam offices, most likely mistaking his reflection for another deer causing him to charge. The deer did not appear to have any injuries.

Admissions allow tours again

By Meghan CarrollNews Editor

Due to COVID-19, tours at Lasell came to a halt until a plan could be put together to ensure the safety of Blue Key Society Ambassadors, as well as the general campus population. After careful consideration and planning, the Lasell Office of Undergraduate Admissions started hosting tours on campus September 21.

The tour itself has been altered to show as much of campus while trying to limit con- tact with students. Guests who schedule tours on campus must fill out a COVID-19 self-assessment. In order to ensure proper social distancing, tours are restricted to one student and two guests per ambassador.
