Whether providing a convincing closing argument during a mock trial or performing a new choral number, Lasell College students showcased their creativity through projects and presentations at the College's Bi-Annual Connected Learning Symposium.

The symposium, which was held from December 6 to December 10,  spanned several sites and was an overwhelming success, according to school officials. 

"Congratulations to students, as well as to professors, for a great, week-long display of the productive, imaginative work that resulted from a semester of connected learning. Students displayed intellectual power, creative energy, and professional poise in their presentations, exhibits, and performances. The students and the faculty who mentored them during the term should feel great pride," said Jim Ostrow, Vice President for Academic Affairs.

The symposium featured over 60 projects produced and completed by Lasell College students. The projects range from mock legal trials to a concert performed by lecturer Harvey Finstein and his student-comprised Rhythm and Blues band.
