On Friday, February 11th, Lasell College honored its first-year students who have made Dean's List or participated in the Honors Program during their first semester at the College.
More than 100 students received the awards at the ceremony, which featured brief speeches by President Michael B. Alexander, Dean of Advising and First Year Programs, Helena Santos, and Sophomore Lia Odoardi, who received an academic achievement award last year as a first-year student.
Others participating in the event included Vice President of Student Affairs Diane Austin, Dean of Undergraduate Education Steven Bloom, Director of the Honors Program Stephanie Athey, and Vice President for Academic Affairs James Ostrow.

The Honors Program focuses on academic excellence in highly motivated students, alongside the Lasell hallmarks of connected learning, student-centered teaching and social responsibility. The program concentrates on the ability for students to more deeply explore their chosen field of study.
