What activities are you or have been involved in (clubs, activities, athletics, etc.)? 
The activities that I have been involved in are Lasell's Compendium Literary Magazine (working as one of the Managing Editors), Lasell College's Hope for Humanity, and Lasell's Honors Student Council.

Any internship you may have done or are looking to do? 
I'm currently interning library at James FitzGerald Elementary School in Waltham, MA.  I am also interning at the Auburndale Community Library in Newton, Mass.

Why did you choose Lasell?
I chose Lasell because it offered a variety of English classes and because it offered the major that I wanted to pursue.

What is your favorite Connected Learning project/experience so far?
One of my favorite Connected Learning projects I have experienced so far was in my English Honors 101 course when we traveled to the Boys and Girls Club in Newton, MA, and worked with the children that were a part of the Second Step Program. At the site, we set up multiple activities for them to do, which include arts and crafts.

What is your favorite Lasell event or tradition?
One of my favorite Lasell events that I have attended was the stuff-a-plush CAB Winter Fest event in the campus center last semester. I think it was an event where we could all watch a movie together and spend time with our friends.

What is your favorite class so far and why?
It is difficult to pick a favorite class when I have enjoyed so many, but one of my favorite classes is my Poetry Writing Workshop course because I am able to express myself in one of my favorite forms, which is poetry writing.

What has been your favorite memory so far at Lasell?
My favorite memory at Lasell so far was attending the spring concert at Lasell last year with my friends.

What was it about Lasell that interested you?
What interested me about Lasell was the location of the school and the variety of classes that are offered to students.

If you did a campus visit to Lasell, what was your impression of the college?
When I did a campus visit to Lasell, my impression of the college was that it felt like a tight- knit community. The campus is in the Auburndale village section of Newton, which further adds to a small community feel.

How did you decide that Lasell was right for you?
I decided that Lasell was right for me because of the small class sizes and the feeling of a community.

If you could tell a prospective student why they should come to Lasell, what would you say?
If I could tell a prospective student why they should come to Lasell I would say they should come for the small class sizes and the Connected Learning experience.
