Lasell College makes biodiesel for good cause: MyFoxBOSTON.com

Fox 25 News interviewed Lasell's Asst. Director of Plant Operations and Sustainability Marc Fournier about the College's program to turn used cooking oil into heating oil for local shelters on Thursday February 24.

The program, which began in the Fall of 2009, is a partnership between the College and Sodexo Food Services to recycle used cooking oil from the Valentine Dining Hall for use as heating oil by local shelters, including the Pine Street Inn in Boston. The oil is collected by Mass BioFuel, which converts the cooking oil into a heating oil blend for the shelter.

President Alexander Responds to the Tragedy in Orlando  Thursday, June 16, 2016We the people of the United States cherish our freedoms. Whether it be the freedom to say what we want, to assemble in groups of our choosing, to follow the religions of our choice, to vote as our conscience demands, to own and carry weapons, to start new businesses and make money, and to move about as we please -- these are values we hold dear and are reluctant to compromise.
