Before coming to Lasell, I had never heard the name. My family had gone to schools in Boston and my dad grew up just around the block from here. The other schools I toured included Suffolk and UMass Boston but they were nothing compared to 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.

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.
My first impression of Lasell was that it seemed calm and quiet. Now most people may dislike this and find it as a downside for college since they are probably looking for somewhere that they can party and be loud and rambunctious, but for me this was perfect.

If you were to ask any college student in America what year their college was founded, they might have to think for a second. For some, they might not even know. If you asked any Lasell University student what year their college was founded, the answer might just fly out of their mouth, “1851!”
In our lives, we meet a multitude of people. Admittedly, some are going to be amazing; they’ll be your best friends, your teammates, your mentors. On the other hand, they may be someone you feel is too negative-minded, mostly caring for themselves. However, no matter how you view them, everyone in our lives is there to help us grow in one way or another.
