However, certain shoppers in Colorado and Washington dubbed the holiday “Green Friday,” as they stocked up on recreational marijuana deals, according to a USA Today article (“It’s Green Friday, not Black Friday, at Colo. marijuana stores”).

Sometimes you meet people who have the ability to light up a room and immediately change the atmosphere. These people are passionate about what they love to do and seem so friendly, so ready to make connections and to leave a lasting impression. One of those people for me is Kevin Lilly, a Class of 2014 entrepreneurship major.

Volunteering and service are in the blood of Lasell. Numerous courses include service and almost every club seems to do something to give back. During my time at Lasell, I have participated in so many service events and each has affected me positively. My favorite annual service event, besides the trip to Ecuador as I cannot participate in that again, would be the Center for Community-Based Learning (CCBL)’s annual Holiday Board.

Julian Casablancas is known by many as one of America’s rock gods. Known best as the lead singer of The Strokes, Casablancas has won the hearts of many with his powerful voice and signature lyrics. On his second solo effort, “Tyranny,” he paired up with the Voidz, an eclectic group of musicians, and created an album that veers far away from The Strokes’ work, leaving fans perplexed at first, but eventually happy (or at least interested) as the material is strong in its own way.
