Students have been complaining about Star Market’s high prices and subpar food quality for a while. With the shuttle only going to Star Market on weekends, it would be more beneficial to take students to Market Basket in Waltham instead.
Scattered across the lawns of Newton, you may have seen signs that read “Stop Lasell’s Stadium Lights, 70-foot lights don’t belong in Auburndale.” These signs are part of a protest regarding Lasell’s plans to put lights on Grellier Field. The disagreement caught attention outside Newton when an article in the Boston Globe was published over the summer. It expressed how worried our neighbors are and why they do not want the lights. While these worries are under- stood, it would only be fair to share our side of the story.
Nestled in a village called Auburndale lay the sleeping heads of 10 student journalists, blissfully dreaming in their dorms. Some dreamed of long beach days from summers’ past while some toss and turn, suffering from nightmares about deadlines. As the sun rises each morning, they hop out of bed and anticipate the day ahead – each one has a story to tell.

Lasell’s incoming transfer numbers are a bit higher than usual this semester. This has to do in part with the closing of fellow Newton institution, Mt. Ida College. The college’s close proximity to Lasell, and the opening of a few new Lasell programs encouraged some students from Mt. Ida to transfer schools.

Students were surprised this summer when they stopped by Arnow Campus Center and found it closed for construction. After about two years of planning, new renovations are currently underway, and students have con- cerns regarding what will be inside and when it will open.
Editor-in-Chief Seán McGlone sits down with graduating seniors Emma Cipriani, Shannon Motz, and Troy Gonsalves to discuss their various involvements during their time at Lasell as well as what advice they have for students looking to establish themselves more on campus.
