Carolyn Kenniston '13 - Law student


Student: Suffolk University Law School
Major: Legal Studies, Criminal Justice, Minor in Business/Law

The law school experience is much different than the undergraduate experience, but I feel as though I walked into Suffolk on my first day of class feeling as though I was adequately prepared for my next challenge.

One thing that continues to amaze me about Lasell is the personal connections you make with your professors. I am still in touch with many of my professors, and distinctly remember emailing them during my first week of class thanking them for teaching me one thing or another that I had already learned during their classes. It is truly amazing to be able to connect after graduation with people who helped you to get where you are, and knowing that they are rooting for your continued success.

Lasell challenged me to push myself academically. I believe that you are truly as smart as you push yourself to be, and feel that Lasell always provided me with ways to push myself to be a better student. It is a great feeling to receive your grades at the end of the semester and know how hard you worked to earn them. Lasell prepared me to become a better student, and I continue to use that momentum in my law school education.

During my four years at Lasell I was actively involved. I was President of the Student Government Association for two years, and the Vice President for the Class of 2013 for three years. I was the founder and President of Hope for Humanity, an organization on campus focused on helping those in need. I was an Admissions Ambassador and Tour Guide, and a Resident Assistant for three years. I was also an Orientation Leader and Peer Health Education member. Although I have graduated, I am still actively involved with the Lasell community as the Class of 2013 Alumni Secretary, a Reunion Coordinator, and a member of the Board of Management.
