Best of Both Worlds at Lasell College Reply

By Zach Houle

My first impression of Lasell College was that it’s a small school located in the wealthy suburbs of Boston. Early in my college search, my goal was to go to school in the city. As I ventured further through the application process, I realized being in the city all the time and having an influx of work to do would give me headaches. There’s always a ton of people walking around, and you must have your head on a swivel.

First Impressions of Lasell Reply

Myself and other first year students experienced college for the first-time during orientation weekend. Everyone had made their way down to the football field before 8 a.m. There, we sat in a big circle with name tags pinned to our t-shirts and played “ice breaker games.” All the orientation leaders were practically jumping out of their shoes to get us involved.

When I first arrived at Lasell I was nervous because it isn’t a racially diverse school, so I felt out of my element.

But I came to Lasell to study so making friends had to take a backburner…or so I thought. I soon realized that wasn’t going to work here.

The first week of school was filled with making friends and finding what I liked to do. I met people from orientation, made some new friends and joined a couple clubs – anything I could do to find my place.
