Any internship you may have done, or are looking to do?

What was it that brought you to Lasell?
When applying for colleges I wanted a school that was in the Boston area but I was torn on whether I wanted to be directly in the city or not. Coming from a smaller town, jumping into a big city can be nerve wrecking. One of my biggest reasons for coming to Lasell, besides the quality of my major, was its location. I love being able to jump on the T if I need to run into Boston but still have the ability to come back to a beautiful, safe and quiet town that I get to call home.

What do you like to do off campus or in Boston?
I love Newbury Street with a passion, and while my wallet may not agree with it I am a consistent visitor. I also love walking around the lesser-known streets of Boston in search of that hidden gem.

Give an interesting story or great memory from Lasell that you would be willing to share with your peers or a tour.
My story is not necessarily an isolated event but one of the best things I love about Lasell is that you are never really alone. We are a small school and while some may not love the idea of that, what I do love is walking into the dining hall alone but having multiple options of who to sit with. Even with professors, you create these relationships that benefit you not only while in college but that will continue into the real world. I love that Lasell is a place that I have people who will always support me.
