Why did you choose Lasell?
When I was in high school, I had no idea what I wanted to do. The one thing I did know was that I had to go to college. One day, I received an email from Lasell College Admissions advertising the school. So I sent it in because I had nothing to lose. When I heard back that I was accepted and invited to attend Lasell Day I still wasn’t sure if Lasell was for me. When my parents and I drove out to Newton for the event, I still wasn’t sure if Lasell was the place for me then either. However, after getting the chance to see the campus as well as to talk to real students and faculty, my unsureness was washed away and I knew Lasell was the place I wanted to spend my next four years.

Activities you are or have been involved in (clubs, activities, athletics, etc.): Currently I am the Station Manager (club president) of Lasell College Radio, Lasell’s on campus radio station, as well as an on-air disc jockey. In addition, I am a techie and actor for the Lasell College Drama Club, a baritone in Lasell College Chorus, and a periodic videographer for Lasell College Television as well as a member of Lasell’s Honors Program. In the past, I was an Orientation Leader for the Class of 2019, a student worker for Lasell Information Technology, a Peer Mentor in the First-Year Seminar Program, a musician in Lasell’s Pop/Rock Band, in addition to being an actor for Anything Goes! an improv show produced by Lasell’s Improv Club and LCTV. There are probably more things I’ve done… I may have just forgotten them.

Any internship you have done?
As of right now, I have not had an internship. However, thanks to my work with my extracurricular activities several opportunities have presented themselves to me!

What has been your favorite Connected Learning project/experience so far?
My favorite Connected Learning experience so far has been all my work with Lasell College Radio. It has given me the opportunity to work at a radio station in the manner one might see in the real world. I am not just doing something I like for fun, I am doing it because I am learning skills that I will be able to apply in my career once I graduate.

What is your favorite Lasell event or tradition?
My favorite tradition at Lasell has to be the Torchlight Parade. It’s such a great feeling seeing the campus come together and have the graduating class literally pass the torch of knowledge and responsibility to the underclassmen so they can move forward to share what they’ve learned in the world beyond Lasell.

Where is your favorite place to hang out on campus?

My typical haunts at Lasell on nice days include the Van Winkle Quad and the paths along the pond near Lasell Village as well as an undisclosed, secret spot in the dining hall. You’ll often also find me working (or not) in the Lasell College Radio Station or any of the computer labs in Brennan Library. They’re like my second home. If you see me, say “Hi!” I don’t bite and I shower often...

What do you like to do off campus or in Boston?

When I get the chance to go off campus, I love going to Kenmore Square and just walking in a random direction. Often times I end up on Newbury Street, the Commons, or Faneuil Hall, and on adventurous forays I even find myself in Chinatown.

Do you have an interesting story or great memory from your time here at Lasell that you would be willing to share?

When I first came to Lasell I had no idea what I wanted to do. I was an Undeclared major until the second day of my summer orientation when I spontaneously changed it to Communication with concentration in Radio and Video Production. I did this because I still had no idea what I wanted to do but it gave me an excuse to play in the radio station and take classes on video and audio editing. This interested me at the time because I thought I could be a professional YouTuber by doing this. Fast forward two years, and I couldn’t be more thankful for that whimsical decision my naive 18-year-old self made. I was able to find a passion for working in the radio industry and live music, get involved in a lot clubs and events, and develop a growing desire to share the knowledge I have learned so far to help others reach their goals (while still assessing my chances of becoming a professional YouTuber). Moral of the story: you don’t have to know what you want to do in life because that is always in flux, you just need to have the drive to jump into the unknown and see what happens.
