Lasell Students Perform, Present, Pitch at Spring Symposium

April 30, 2014

Lasell students this week presented projects, testified in mock trials, performed in concerts, displayed their art work and showed off their designs at the College's Spring Symposium during the week of April 28.

The week-long Symposium, which occurs once in the Fall and Spring semesters, showcases work completed by students individually or in groups.

In addition to electronic poster presentations ranging in topics from Video Game Globalization to Athletic Training, students served as the prosecution, defense and witnesses in a mock trial, while graphic design seniors presented their senior projects and music students performed in a Spring concert. The symposium culminates in the undergraduate and senior fashion design shows - Runway 2014 on May 2 and 3.

Among the presentations was a Lasell version of the popular TV show Shark Tank where Assistant Professor of Management Loredana Padurean's Entrepreneurship students presented capsule pitches for business plans for start-up companies, mobile applications and more-with creative names like "Stand Online (Not In Line)," "Joe's Moes, LLC Maple Syrup," "Silk-Karat-Lace" and "JAM Studio" to a packed (and responsive) Rosen Auditorium audience.

Also during the week, Athletic Training students worked in a clinic style environment with faculty and staff who presented with injuries requiring diagnosis and treatment plans.

New this Spring was a Career and Internship Fair that included representatives from many local businesses who spoke to students about job prospects and potential internships.
