Why did you decide to transfer to Lasell?
For the sense of community Lasell has. Just like my hometown, Lasell students are supportive, helpful and welcoming. 

As a transfer student, what were the important factors you considered as part of your transfer school search?
Location, this was very important when thinking about internships. Internships are extremely important when building your 'brand'. Lasell has a great internship program and a perfect location to match it.

How did Lasell assist you in the transfer process?
Extremely helpful, answered all my emails with knowledge and always gave me more information. 

What is your favorite thing about Lasell?
My favorite thing about Lasell is the location. The location makes it extremely easy to get to and from my internship as well as fun things in Boston. The small campus also makes it easy to hangout with friends and attend social events.

What is your favorite Connected Learning project/experience so far?
My favorite connected learning experience is planning a "mock event."  My group had to contact real professionals and find out information as well as tour places such as The House of Blues in Boston. It was very exciting and helpful, a change in the normal learning that you may be used too from a textbook.

Activities you are or have been involved in (clubs, activities, athletics, etc.):
Hospitality Club, NACE 

Any internship you have done, or are looking to do:
I'm currently interning as an Administrative Assistant of Private Dinning for  Legal Sea Foods Private Dinning, and I am very fortunate to be getting such great experience. 

Out of all the choices of colleges, why did you choose to attend Lasell?
The size, it is very important to me to build relationships with my teachers and peers        

What's a great memory you have from Lasell?
Attending the Women's Soccer GNAC Championship. Everyone goes to the hillside to watch the girls get another title. It was at the beginning of the school year so I had not experienced the sense of community and support that Lasell has. It was exciting to see everyone there cheering for the team.
