Campus is not handicap accessable

Alexandra White1851 Staff

Last year on campus I was walking to my class at the Science and Technology building when I saw a handicapped student being helped down the stairs to the building by other students. While this was a very heartwarming moment, I couldn’t help but wonder why there were very few pathways for disabled students to get to their classes. Since then, I have seen this several times on campus. Students who are physically handicapped struggle to travel around campus just to get to their classes or even the dining hall.

Have you ever been the new kid at school? If you’re reading this and you’re a freshman at Lasell than you definitely have now. I was that kid many times. I actually enjoyed that title before but when I had to be the new kid at Lasell, it was hard.

I’ve been a reserved person for as long as I can remember, so being the new kid was a good way to start over. Only this time, I didn’t want to start over. Going to college meant leaving behind my friends, my family, my band, and the good life I made for myself.

A few days before moving on campus, my band performed at a big club in Boston. I still remember my first few nights on campus trying to remember how good we sounded but I could only hear silence.

It’s easy to dwell on what I have lost but I learned that I should find out what I have gained. First of all, college is way better than high school in every way imaginable. When you start learning about something you really want to know more about, class becomes enjoyable. Making friends was surprisingly easier for me than I originally thought. Also, within my schedule, I was still able to find the time to play music.

Listen, if you’re in college, chances are that college is going to become a sizable part of your life but it doesn’t have to be your whole life. Do not feel like you must be within the parameters of your life at school. College should be that gateway to branching out and doing new things. There is a large amount of free time that should be used to your advantage. You can easily waste it as you can easily spend it wisely.
