A chilly but beautiful fall weekend approached, and with it came Lasell’s annual Family, Friends, and Alumni Weekend (FFAW). From Friday, October 16 to Sunday, October 18, students, family, and faculty enjoyed a multitude of events both on and off campus, such as sports games, barbecues, student performances, a pep rally, and River Day. The Lasell community took a break from its academic rigor and enjoyed some well- earned down time.

Growing up, my mother always taught me to eat what was put in front of me whether I liked it or not. If I didn’t want to eat it that was just too bad because that was what was for dinner.
