Long Distance Lasers

The primary goal of this student club is to work towards improving commuter student’s daily life on campus. To accomplish this we serve as a forum for the communication and expression of commuter student views on campus. For more information, contact SGA Commuter President and Long Distance Laser President, Edwin Saltus at ejsaltus@lasell.edu

Einstein Bros.Dining Options

Dining options available to campus commuters include Valentine Dining Hall in the Edwards Student Center, Einstein Bros. Bagels in the Arnow Campus Center, and one a la carte dining options - one in the Glow Lounge in the Winslow Academic Center. 

For commuters who want the convenience of being able to dine at Valentine Dining Hall with friends, you can sign up for a Commuter Block Meal Plan. You can eat in Valentine Dining Hall without a block, but you save money by purchasing the block. There are three different blocks to choose from:

  • Block 25: $110
  • Block 50: $220
  • Block 75: $330

To sign up for a meal plan, go to MyLasell and fill out the required form. Dining Services can also be contacted at 617-243-2163.
