Activities you are or have been involved in (clubs, activities, athletics, etc.):
Aside from working at the Blue Key Society, I am President of Lasell College Television and Treasurer of the drama club. I also perform in the fall musicals.

Any internship you may have done or are looking to do?
In the summer of 2015 I interned at Newton’s public access TV station, NewTV. I was an intern under the Education Channel where I edited and directed shows.

Why did you choose Lasell?
I chose Lasell because of the small classes as well as the at-home feel the campus has. I love being able to be so close to a city full of opportunities but also feel at home on campus.

What is your favorite Connected Learning project/experience so far?
My experience with Connected Learning has been great. My radio class required us to interview an up-and-coming band. I ended up interviewing a band in the Boston area, but I also got the courage to contact one of my favorite artists, thinking he wouldn’t reply. To my surprise, he replied and I did a phone interview with an artist who I’ve been listening to for five years. It was amazing.

What is your favorite Lasell event or tradition?
My favorite Lasell tradition is River Day at Family, Friends, and Alumni weekend. My Mom and I always participate in the boat races, it’s something we look forward to doing together every year!

What is your favorite spot on campus and why?
The Arnow Quad because it’s a good place to relax on a sunny day.

What do you like to do off campus or in Boston?
I love to go shopping at the Natick mall! I also love going into Boston for dinner with my friends.

Give an interesting story or great memory from Lasell that you would be willing to share with your peers or a tour.
One of my greatest memories at Lasell is being involved in the fall musicals. Being in a musical is something I always wanted to do, but never had time for in high school, so I’m really happy I pursued it at Lasell.
