Past Community Events

Members of Lasell’s Student Government Association collecting canned goods for the Annual City-Wide Newton Food Drive at Midnight Breakfast

Lasell partnered with the city of Newton for the Mayor’s annual city-wide food drive  in December 2014 to kick start a year of giving in the community. Faculty, staff and neighbors made donations at the Lasell drop off location and the Student Government Association collected canned goods at their Midnight Breakfast event.

In April 2011, eight students from the Advanced Special Event Management class helped plan Newton’s Heartbreak Hill Youth Race, the annual event ahead of the Boston Marathon. The students helped plan several children's activities which included face painting, temporary tattoos, and spray hair dye. They also secured prizes for raffles from local area vendors.
