A variety of offices offer student employment on campus. The convenience of living and working on campus all while working with your peers with an above minimum wage pay leads to friendships and knowledge of the work force. Both of us, seniors at Lasell, have taken the opportunity to work on campus.

When it comes to Einstein’s on campus I think it is safe to say the Lasell community approves of the changes made in the Campus Center. The bagels are delicious, the coffee is a big improvement from Peet’s Coffee, and the variety of choices we can order is abundant. All of the food and beverage choices that I and my friends have enjoyed have been well-made and very tasty. After talking with students around campus, we definitely recognize the improvements, the effort, and quality that has been put into having Einstein’s available.

Fall is here. The trees are turning colors, brushing our beautiful campus in hues of orange, red, and yellow, a reminder that one of the greatest holidays on campus, Halloween, is approaching. It’s also time to prepare for one of the most anticipated campus parties of the year, the Halloween Dance. But this time of year is not exciting for everyone. It can also be a painful time for many, especially those whose cultures or identities are offended by another’s Halloween costume.

Uganda trip canceled
After months of debate within the community, President Michael Alexander announced on October 16 that the service trip to Uganda will be cancelled for this year due to the country’s anti-gay legislation and its implications to human rights as well as terrorist activity and the possible spreading of Ebola.
In a letter to the community, Alexander wrote, “I hope we can go forward confident in the knowledge that we can engage in open discourse on challenging topics while exhibiting respect, and even kindness, to those whose opinions differ from our own.”

This winter, the Edwards Fitness Center will be given a much-needed makeover during, giving students a clean, new gym.
Edwards, Lasell’s main exercise outlet, is being renovated after years of wear and tear. The condition of the gym is dirty, smelly, and outdated. Rust covers the weights, leaving a film of brown dust on the hands of anyone touching them.
