Shuttle system new routes for safer and easier travels

The shuttle and parking system underwent major changes over summer 2016.

A major change that should be known is that there are two shuttles; one for campus only, and one for parking only.  The shuttles are clearly marked.  Download the app, RideSystems, to check the real-time location of both shuttles.  Both shuttle schedules can also be found on Lasell’s website under “Shuttle & MBTA.” More…

Change is scary. Change means new, unfamiliar, uncomfortable, intimidating. Change gives us a natural fear whether we knew we had that fear or not. It will happen regardless of who you are and I’m embracing change as it comes. Change in myself is something I have been welcoming for a while now, as in change in my surroundings. Change in general has been good for me, but it hasn’t always been easy. More…

Lasell joins against conflict mineral crisis

In an email sent on January 27, President Michael Alexander announced Lasell has officially declared to join 19 other colleges around the country in acting against the conflict mineral crisis occurring in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

By joining this initiative, Lasell will try to help lessen the impact on the environment where these minerals are harvested, as well as try to help prevent the creation of child soldiers and sexual violence.

Lasell spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on technology, both renting and buying every year. In the recent email President Alexander said that Lasell will avoid use of products containing conflict minerals “when possible.”

By making this decision, the college has taken a positive step in declaring awareness for these minerals, though it is only a single step. – H. West

Fourth annual COMDay in March

Lasell’s fourth annual COM Day will take place on March 8, 9:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. featuring two panels; the strategies of social media, and another featuring recent alumni. The social media panel will feature employees from the New York Mets, Be the Change, Inc., and Comcast Sports New England.

The Keynote Speaker for this year’s event is Michael Rezendes, of The Boston Globe. Rezendes is a Pulitzer Prize-winner for investigative reporting and one of the journalists fea- tured in the film, “Spotlight,” where Rezendes is played by actor Mark Ruffalo.

The day will present time for networking, and speed networking with employers who are looking for new hires. – K. DeJulio

By Krista DeJulio & Ryan Fitzgerald – Co-Editors-in-Chief

It’s been almost three years since our lord and savior Kanye West released the darkest, craziest, most politically driven album of his career, “Yeezus.” It brought us “I Am A God” (in which he raps about croissants, the household staff, and his garage), “Bound 2” (an “1851 Chronicle” editorial staff favorite), and “Black Skin- head” (which was in an Animal Planet commercial). But what will this new album bring us?
