Every year, around 35 lucky members of the Lasell community are chosen to participate in Alternative Spring Break (ASB), a program that lets students give back to different communities around the country. “I feel like community service as a whole…is both a selfish and selfless act, to give up your time to volunteer or give back to those in need,” said junior ASB Leader Jasmine Williams. “It’s just an experience for you to learn more about yourself, to humble yourself and also just to meet people that you would not normally meet.” More…

Lasell offers more than 60 academic programs, allowing students to choose from 42 majors and 38 minors. However, professional arts majors aren’t offered anymore, having only one art minor for students to choose from. The arts management program opened around 2014 but then closed within the years proceeding until the last two students graduated with an arts management major last spring. Since then, the arts management program’s spirit has been kept alive within the Wedeman Gallery that’s located on the second floor of Yamawaki.
