Students returned to campus, no doubt excited to be with their friends again, start classes and see where they’d be living for the next school year. But for some, that excitement may have deflated when they saw the condition of their housing.
Water damage. Paint damage. Missing closet doors. This is just some things heard or seen when school started up again. Some of the residence halls and houses had various damage, which soured the mood of move-in day for some returning students. While these damages can be brushed off and accepted, it can still ruin the feel of a room.

It’s a quaint place here – and it has been since 1851… Lasell is one of the oldest institutions in the area, pinned in Auburndale for over 150 years. The College has held former names in the past – some being Lasell Female Seminary and Lasell Junior College – but has, since 1989, maintained its four-year college status. Recently, however, Lasell has entertained discussion on a possible switch to a university.
