Lasell kicked off the school year in September with a celebratory Lasell U-Belong event in the Arnow Quad to commemorate the institution’s new university status. The event started with Assistant Vice President & Chief Diversity Officer Jesse Tauriac and a panel of community members welcoming attendees to the event, saying how everyone belonged at Lasell.

For the first time since 2010, the women’s soccer team has not been the league voted team to beat. According to the GNAC preseason poll, six out of 13 league head coaches believe last year’s winning team— Saint Joseph’s of Maine, will repeat as champions in 2019. This vote comes in spite of the Lasers’ eight conference title wins since 2010.

Students returned to campus, no doubt excited to be with their friends again, start classes and see where they’d be living for the next school year. But for some, that excitement may have deflated when they saw the condition of their housing.
Water damage. Paint damage. Missing closet doors. This is just some things heard or seen when school started up again. Some of the residence halls and houses had various damage, which soured the mood of move-in day for some returning students. While these damages can be brushed off and accepted, it can still ruin the feel of a room.

On Aug. 13, 2019 students were soaking up the last weeks of summer before they headed back to Lasell College. However, that would soon change. Students wouldn’t be returning to Lasell College in the fall. That morning, President Michael Alexander appeared in our email inboxes, class Facebook pages and social media feeds to announce “Lasell University.”

Seven students volunteered back- stage at Boston Fashion Week’s “Prophecy” show on Sept. 28 at Arlington Street Church where they became the show’s finale. Students were given the opportunity to walk in the show due to a shortage of models.
