What activities are you or have been involved in (clubs, activities, athletics, etc.)?  
While at Lasell, I have been involved with the entrepreneurship club, acted as photographer for the 1851 Chronicle newspaper and worked as a peer mentor for first year students.

Any internship you may have done or are looking to do?
I have interned with the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs for a summer, interned with the World Bank in Washington, D.C. while studying abroad, and am currently interning with Lasell's office of Government and Community Affairs. I am also currently in the interviewing process for an internship with Governor Baker's office.

Why did you choose Lasell?
Lasell stood out to me for it beautiful campus, its small intimate classes, and its amazing internship and study abroad programs.

What is your favorite Connected Learning project/experience so far?
Above all, my favorite Connected Learning experience was traveling to Vietnam with my classmates to volunteer at the SOS Village and learn more about Vietnamese history, culture and language.

What is your favorite Lasell event or tradition?
My favorite Lasell tradition the Torchlight Parade because it symbolizes the passing down of knowledge from generation to generation.

What is your favorite class so far and why?
One of the first classes I've taken at Lasell, FYS Understanding Globalization, is my favorite class because it helped me discover what I want to do in the future.

What has been your favorite memory so far at Lasell?
My favorite memory at Lasell is when everyone comes together to celebrate marathon Monday. #Bostonstrong

What was it about Lasell that interested you?
Lasell's vision for Connected Learning is what interested me the most. I wanted to attend a college that not only taught in the classroom, but would connect that to the real world.

If you did a campus visit to Lasell, what was your impression of the college?
My impression of Lasell was that it was in a small, nice neighborhood, close enough to Boston to elicit opportunity, but far enough away to avoid the traffic of the city.

How did you decide that Lasell was right for you? 
The study abroad program is what stood out amongst other colleges. Sure, other colleges allow students to study abroad, but none other seemed to encourage it as much as Lasell does.
