The Office of Student Activities and Orientation is committed to enhancing the holistic student experience by assisting new students in the transition to Lasell, developing and supporting registered clubs and organizations, fostering intellectual exploration through co-curricular programs, and promoting student leadership development.

The Office of Student Activities and Orientation develops and implements on-campus and web-based resources and programs for all new students through Orientation Programs. These programs include Laser Link Orientation, Laser Transfer Transitions, Lasell Laser Welcome Weekend and Laser Winter Orientation. Two Orientation Coordinators (hired in the Fall) and ten Orientation Leaders (hired in the Spring) assist with all Orientation Programs.

Opportunities are provided for students to explore, develop and practice their leadership skills and potential. A variety of classes and workshops are offered each semester. Programs include the Leadership Scholar program, Exploring Leadership, Emerging Leaders, and Advanced Leadership Seminar. Each program is geared toward students at varied levels of leadership. There is a Passport program offered as a guide for students to navigate and celebrate their leadership journey.

Major events sponsored in part by the Office of Student Activities and Orientation are intended to bring the Lasell community together for a social, educational, or celebratory program. Programs include Welcome Programming, Family, Friends, and Alumni Weekend (including River Day), the annual Awards Banquet, and the Torchlight Parade and Senior Soiree.

Students are provided with the opportunity to interact with others through educational, social, cultural, and recreational clubs and organizations. There are around seventy student-run clubs and organizations on campus. All student organizations are registered through the Office of Student Activities and Orientation and have faculty or staff advisors.

The Office of Student Activities and Orientation is located in the Arnow Campus Center, on the 2nd floor, and is open  Monday through Friday from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm during the academic year and Monday through Thursday 9:00 am - 4:30 pm during the summer.
