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.
The end of winter break brought a chilly new feature to campus – an ice rink! On January 17, students were invited to make a cup of gourmet hot chocolate to enjoy while skating.

Be sure to stop by this new feature and look out for any upcoming events on the ice!
