Students may enter the Dining Hall as often as they like during regular hours of operation. However, once a student has used all of his/her allotted meals during a weekly meal period, s/he must pay for meals at the door. Cash, credit card, Dining Dollars or Laser Loot may be used to pay for any additional meals. Dining Dollars may be used in any retail location (Campus Center, Library, Wolfe) or to purchase additional meals or guest meals in the Dining Hall.
All resident students are required to participate in a meal plan. Students will not be released from participation in a meal plan for any reason.
Students who need special meals for religious or medical reasons, should make an appointment to see the General Manager, Dietitian, or Chef, to work out particulars. All medical diets will be accommodated if accompanied by written orders from the Lasell College Health Services Office, or the student's own physician, dietician, or clinical nutritionist. Please make certain that any written orders are done on letterhead stationery.
Commuters & Graduate Students
Commuting students and graduate students may purchase one of the three Block Plans: Block 25 (25 meals a semester); Block 50 (50 meals a semester); or Block 75 (75 meals a semester). They may also add Laser Loot to their ID card to be used at the dining services. Check out the "Cinch" program!
Students may add additional money to their accounts called Laser Loot. This can be added on-line through My.Lasell, or, if paying by check or cash, in person at the Campus Police office. In addition, students may transfer funds from their Student Account, if available. Students interested in transferring funds, should contact the Student Accounts Office for information.
Laser Loot can be used to make purchases at any Dining Services location as well as at the Bookstore. Additionally, Laser Loot may be used at various off-campus locations including: CVS, Bruegger's Bagels, Domino's, and Bertucci's. Money can be added to a student's account specifically for use in the Bookstore. Please visit My.Lasell for more information.
Meals During Break Times
Valentine Dining Hall is closed to meal plans during Thanksgiving break, the December-January break, and March break. Similarly, meal plans are not in operation during the summer months. The Dining Hall will be open during part of the December-January break. During this time, meal cards are not valid. Students may use Laser Loot to purchase meals during these times, however money that is attached to a meal plan (Dining Dollars) may not be used during break times.
Your Lasell College ID card is also your meal card. Without your ID, you will not be able to enter the Dining Hall. Students should carry their IDs with them at all times. Meal cards are not transferable; students are not permitted to lend their meal card to someone else, nor are they permitted to use someone else's meal card.
Meal cards should be treated like bankcards, and should be protected from extreme heat or cold. Avoid placing the meal card near magnetic waves, such as a stereo or television, which have been known to "demagnetize" the programming which has been coded on the back of the card. Cards will be pre-punched with a hole for carrying on a key ring or lanyard. DO NOT punch additional holes in the ID card as they can interfere with the reading of the card. If you make additional holes in your Torch Card and it no longer works you will be responsible for purchasing a new card. Students should be aware that carrying an ID card on a ring with keys or other cards may result in the scratching and/or disintegration of the card over time.

Full-time resident students are assigned a mailbox on the first floor of the Edwards Student Center. Mailboxes should be checked daily, since important notices and information are sent through the mail. A resident student's mailbox is another means of communication between the College (faculty, staff, administration, etc.) and the student. Students are notified via email when a package has been received by the Post Office. Packages may be picked up whenever the Post Office is open. Hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, when the College is in session. Packages with pre-paid postage affixed to them may be mailed, and stamps may be purchased through the Lasell Post Office.
A self-service postal kiosk is located in the Butterworth Lounge; you may use your credit/debit card to purchase stamps, postage, and mail letters and packages.
Students holding on-campus jobs will be paid bi-weekly, on an hourly basis. The Offices of Student Financial Planning and Human Resources will be able to guide you to the necessary paperwork that needs to be completed. Payroll checks/vouchers will be delivered to your on-campus mailbox each payday. Direct deposit of your net pay is encouraged. Students can find the direct deposit form on My.Lasell. If a student receives a check and it is then lost, misplaced or stolen, contact the Business Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. A $10 fee will be charged to place a stop payment on the original check and re-issue the check.
During the 2013-14 academic year, the scheduled dates when student payroll checks will be issued are:
