Live Love Lasell

The first time I came to Lasell University, I was a junior in high school visiting my older sister while she had just begun her freshman year. It was exciting going to a college campus, but I was a bit disappointed when I realized how small it was. My hometown is very small, my graduating class was under 100 students. It took me a while to really enjoy coming and sleeping over, especially with the amount of sweat I would produce just sitting in her dorm room. I was anxiously waiting for my senior year to end and ready to move onto the next chapter of my life.

First Impressions From Lasell

By Will DeSousa1851 Contributor

My first impressions of Lasell were primarily positive. On my first day on campus, I was greeted by smiling face after smiling face of faculty members and my fellow students alike. 

Moving into my room and again seeing my roommates, who I’ve now become great teammates and friends with, was so memorable for me. Going to all my classes; although some of them are virtual and simply require me rolling out of bed to attend them, has been an all in all pleasant experience. One of the things that shaped my first impression was my first college soccer practice. The feeling of actually getting to play something close to the game I played through high school was incredible. Masks and all, it was good to meet the team and get together in something close to a group for once– even with the pandemic. 

The big change that stook out for me even in the first week of classes was the amount of homework I was getting. It wasn’t even that it was more than I received in high school, it was just more spread out and in larger chunks. 

Another thing that stood out to me about campus life was how quiet the dorms have been because we aren’t allowed to see our friends in other dorms. This has made our college lives a lot more isolated than I had previously expected. With the pandemic and this being my first year of college, I look forward to a lot more new experiences and changes here at Lasell.

My first impression of Lasell was when I was first on campus at the end of my junior year of high school. Much like everyone else, I was on a tour and the guides talked about the community here and all the super kind people on campus. They also talked about the school as if it was just an amazing community to be a part of.

The Beginning of A Journey

As I drove up to campus on the first day of classes, I saw a Lasell banner hanging on the street pole as I pulled into the commuter parking lot. I remember being nervous and anxious about being a commuter student and not knowing anyone as I didn’t live there and move in with all the freshmen. I remember walking out of my car over preparing for the Writing Class. I needed to have my app pulled up on my phone to show the green “cleared” sign before even walking into the building. I was constantly thinking about what I am going to say, how to introduce myself.
