Laser Link Orientation 2021

Laser Link Orientation 2021


Welcome to Laser Link Orientation!

The Office of Student Activities & Orientation is continuing Lasell's usual two-part Laser Link Orientation program, but this year with virtual events in the summer and in-person events in the fall due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions (please see our COVID-19 information page, which is continually being updated). Please see more details below. Further information will be shared about the second part of Orientation, Lasell Laser Welcome Weekend, in August.

New Student Orientation is when new students and family members are officially welcomed as formal members of the University community. The Orientation program is vitally important to make sure students know the resources available to help them succeed. We look forward to welcoming all new students, both first-year and transfer, and their loved ones to campus virtually and in-person this summer. We cannot wait to have you be a part of Laser Nation!

This year, we are holding our Laser Link Orientation (for all first-year and transfer students) in a hybrid fashion with both synchronous and asynchronous virtual programming.

Students will complete a virtual orientation session at home, which will include virtual sessions about our online platforms, introductions to departments around campus, and ways for students to stay connected. These virtual sessions are video modules presented via Canvas, our Learning Management System, and live Zoom sessions. Students will learn about the core curriculum, finances, and life at the University. They will interact through Zoom with fellow new students and an Orientation Leader team.  Students will be welcomed by Lasell University President Michael B. Alexander, as well as faculty, staff, administrators, and Orientation Leaders throughout the virtual process.

Next Steps: Register for Laser Link Orientation 2.0!

Laser Link Orientation 2.0 is our summer orientation program for first-year and transfer students that missed our Laser Link Orientation. This virtual program is a great opportunity to connect with your new classmates, learn about life at Lasell both inside and outside the classroom, and prepare you for the fall semester. The program will run on Wednesday, August 11.
