Why did you decide to transfer schools?
I decided to transfer in to Lasell because I wanted to pursue my bachelor's degree.  

Out of all the choices of colleges, why did you choose to attend Lasell?
I chose Lasell because of the environment, the communications program and the classroom sizes. The classroom sizes was important to me because I didn't want to get lost in the crowd in another big college.  

As a transfer student, what were the important factors to you when considered as part of your transfer school search?
Some important factors that I considered were affordability and making connections with the right people and I feel like Lasell is definitely connecting me with like minded individuals that help push me to work harder.  

How has your experience been to enter school after serving in the military?
My experience has been very good, all of my professors have been so helpful and understanding in regards to my transition.                                                                               

How did Lasell assist you in the transfer process?
Lasell made the transfer process unbelievably easy, I don't think there was a time where I thought negatively about the process. Everyone was so helpful  

What is your favorite thing about Lasell?
The people, hands down. Everyone has a mindset to succeed and I love that.  

What is your favorite Connected Learning project/experience so far?
Working on the 1851 Chronicle, it gives students a glimpse at what the real world is like.
