    • Lasell Laser Welcome Weekend in September, for new students planning to start in the fall

Laser Link Orientation

Our Laser Link Orientation program in June introduces you to Lasell and all the resources available to help you be successful. Students attending this program will meet many of their classmates, members of the faculty and staff, learn about meal plans, housing options, and more for the fall. During Laser Link Orientation is Parent and Family Orientation*. Students may register for Laser Link Orientation under Step 2 on the Welcome, New Students site. 

*Parent and Family Orientation takes place during Lasell Laser Link Orientation. A variety of information sessions and other events are planned for your family's visit. If families chose to participate, registration for Parent and Family Orientation is processed concurrently with your student's registration for Laser Link Orientation. 

Lasell Laser Welcome Weekend

This three-day orientation for new students takes place prior to the start of classes in September. During Lasell Laser Welcome Weekend, the focus is helping you adjust to your new community — learn how to navigate campus, learn where your classes will be held, meet with faculty and staff members, and enjoy time with other new students. You'll explore and learn more about campus departments; meet in small groups; come together to discuss diversity and inclusion; and enjoy social activities during each day and evening. The program will accommodate all new students: resident, commuter, and online. Parts of the program are required, and parts are recommended. Registration for Lasell Laser Welcome Weekend opens in mid-August on the Welcome, New Students site.
