Discover Lasell

Symposium Sneak Peek

April 18, 2019

Connected Learning - the core of Lasell College's academic experience - is a bridge of applied experiences between the classroom and professional organizations. Twice a year, the College hosts a Connected Learning Symposium to highlight and celebrate the research, internships, and industry experiences that students engaged with that semester.

This year, the spring symposium will take place the week of April 22 - 27. A celebration of the arts will be on display throughout the month, including Collaborative Art and Poetry Banners at Lasell Village, "Experiencing Vietnam in Color," a photography exhibit by Armani Turner '19 in Brennan Library, and student drawings, prints, and graphic design work in the Wedeman Gallery.
