Hometown and State:
Wolcott, Connecticut

Activities you are or have been involved in (clubs, activities, athletics, etc.):
I'm involved with the Relay for Life Committee, Campus Activities Board, Tomorrow's Teachers, and I'm a teachers assistant with Neil Hatem, as well as a peer tutor with the CCBL.

Why did you choose Lasell?
I chose Lasell because of the small, close knit community. I came from a very small town so getting an education at a small school is very helpful if I am ever homesick. I love that in the classroom I am not just a number but a student. I love to be able to form relationships with my teachers and a small campus allows me to do so. Although Lasell is a small campus, I have already learned that there are still multiple opportunities and ways to get involved.

What is your favorite Connected Learning project/experience so far?
The Symposium Showcase is something Lasell does every semester that allows students to showcase any big project or paper they have been working on. My favorite experience I have had so far is getting the chance to present Lasell's Change for Children, which is a fundraiser I did with my FYS: Exploring Activism class.

What is your favorite Lasell event or tradition?
My favorite tradition at Lasell would probably be the Torch Light Parade which happens at the end of every year. The graduating seniors are given torches and there is a parade throughout the campus and at the final stop the seniors pass their torch down to a friend or teammate to represent the continuation of the Lasell legacy!

What do you like to do off campus or in Boston?
I love to go to Newbury Street with my friends and spend the whole day shopping and then grab dinner at the Prudential Center!

Give an interesting story or great memory from Lasell that you would be willing to share with your peers or a tour.
During my freshman year, Lasell students had their fair share of snow days. I stayed indoors and watched movies, ate cookies and drank cocoa with all my roommates, while playing games. It was a great break from school work and it gave my friends and I the opportunity to just sit back and make memories with one another.
