Why did you choose Lasell?
I chose Lasell because of its close proximity to Boston, the small class sizes, the Sport Management major, and the professors really care about their students.

What is your favorite Connected Learning project/experience so far?
My favorite Connected Learning experience was presenting at the Symposium as a freshman for my law class. I acted as a lawyer in a mock trial and presented in front of professors and students in DeWitt Hall.

What is your favorite Lasell event or tradition?
My favorite Lasell event is going to the sporting events with my friends such as soccer or basketball games.

What is your favorite spot on campus and why?
My favorite dining venue is Einstein’s Bagel shop. They have amazing flat bread sandwiches and the smoothies are delicious.

What do you like to do off campus or in Boston?
In Boston, I love going to various sporting events such as Celtics or Red Sox games. I also love going to the North End to enjoy delicious Italian food as well as going to the Prudential Center.

Give an interesting story or great memory from Lasell that you would be willing to share with your peers or a tour.
A great memory was watching the Patriots win the Super Bowl with my roommates and friends who joined us in our room. We had a great night as we learned at halftime we did not have school the next morning because of the snow. We celebrated the whole night and even played football in the snow for a little bit. It was a blast!
