My time at Lasell was filled with many experiences that helped shape me into who I am today. From the hands on attitude of the Hospitality program with its focus on field work to my time spent as a Resident Assistant to my participation in extracurricular programs such as the Rugby Club, Lasell helped form me in a myriad of different ways that helped me after graduation.

To all present and future Hospitality majors I would say to be open to any and all opportunities you have to work with your professors and classmates outside of the classroom. This is an industry where experience speaks best and you’ll find that many of the techniques and skills you learn at Lasell can help you out in any part of the hospitality field.

To me my greatest accomplishment at Lasell was to be one of the founding officers for Lasell’s Rugby Club, which was founded my sophomore year. We as a team went through the trials that are inherently involved in learning a completely new sport to most of us, as well as the tragedy of losing our friend and Captain Jimmy Curtis at the beginning of my senior year. Through all of this we persevered and I will always be proud to call myself one of the founding members of that Club.

What I’m probably most proud of with Leaven is how we managed to get started in the first place. We call ourselves a community sourced bar, which means we raised all of the capital to get started from the local community. We had well over 100 people from the area listen to us and feel that we had an idea that they loved and were willing to support. Without this help we would never have gotten off the ground and it showed me right from the get go that people wanted us to open and wanted what we offered.
