Fifteen Lasell students and alum departed Logan as strangers but returned as a family. For seven days our world was limited to these 15 faces, the Georgia mountains and our Georgia Appalachian Trail Club (GATC) mentors.
The Lasell community came together for Relay for Life on Saturday, March 23rd to celebrate loved ones and survivors. Check out the photo gallery below to see what this special night was all about!

Rugby is a gritty, brutal and not for the faint of heart type game. They aren’t wearing protective pads or helmets. The only protection they have are mouth guards and evasive moves against opponents. Football has plenty of protection but this game is the raw form of that. For Nick Lucido, rugby is what drew him to Lasell in the first place.

Starting college was (and still is) an exciting time in my life. Lasell was my top choice school so I was eager to start my freshman year. The first week of school was filled with making friends and finding what I liked to do. I met people from orientation, made some new friends and joined a couple clubs – anything I could do to find my place.

The day was August 19th. Nerves filled my body as I drove onto campus. I was here two weeks early for cross country pre-season. The campus was very quiet and peaceful. I truthfully was not ready for a change. I did not want to go to college, I wanted to be back home with all my friends. Of course, the first night was rough and I was homesick. The bed was stiff and I missed my parents, but as time passed I slowly started getting used to the feeling of being away from home.
After my first official month at Lasell, I have gotten used to waking up to sirens every morning, walking past gorgeous Victorian homes on my way to class and putting on a raincoat every Tuesday.
