News Brief: Let there be light

By: Ruth Kehinde-  Digital Editor 

On April 13 there was an emergency power outage across the Lasell campus, leaving all open facilities without power. According to a Residential Life campus-wide email, this storm-related incident occurred due to a downed power line and transformer damage that took place on the intersection of Woodland Road and Seminary Avenue. Residents were updated via email and were provided flashlights for the time that the power was out. Campus Police served as a Fire Watch Patrol throughout the buildings.

Lasell’s electrical power company, EverSource, provided many repairs to the damaged equipment, having the power restored only a few hours after it was shut down. Due to this unanticipated event, the registrar moved the sophomore registration period from Tuesday, April 14 to Wednesday, April 15 at 7 a.m.
