Dear Lasell College Community,

Lasers help Lasers. Alumni are the bedrock of our community, and we want to be there for you every day of your life.

This tradition of support dates back to our founding in 1851 and continues on and off campus every day. Our students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community friends spend countless hours supporting one another through academic initiatives, mentorship, and most recently, the generosity shown during our capital campaign.

I was humbled by our community's philanthropy. In Pursuit of Great: The Campaign for Lasell College finished 26 percent over goal, and I cannot thank everyone enough for this tremendous support. It reflects the strong belief in our mission and the confidence in our commitment to providing a high-quality college education to an incredible group of students.

Though the campaign has concluded, I implore you to continue the trend of helping fellow Lasers and of asking for help when you need it. Looking to network? Need to hire someone? Interested in reconnecting with faculty or classmates? We can make it happen. It is an exciting time for the College; we recently welcomed Chelsea Gwyther as vice president of development and alumni relations. You can read more about her background and goals for Lasell College on p.6. Chelsea and I both are committed to making sure that Lasell is one of the places you turn to whether in times of need, joy, or when questions arise.

As we complete another academic year, I want to thank you once again for your support and belief in Lasell College. Our history is built on the foundation you have laid and our future is brighter because of it.

With gratitude, 

Michael B. Alexander (Signature)
