Lesley Student Has Unique Internship in Croatia (1)

When I mention that my ancestors come from Croatia, most people say they aren’t familiar with that country. But perhaps they don’t realize how important Croatia is to popular culture.  In fact, a number of characters and places in movies and television have ties to Croatia, including The Last Jedi’s Canto Bight and Game of… Read More ›

Not Enough Students Know About the Lesley Public Post (0)

As students, we all receive emails from Student Activities, Lesley News and Events, and several other sources informing us about the various campus happenings in the upcoming week. However, there seems to be a strong disconnect between Lesley students and our school newspaper, the Lesley Public Post. I have spoken to students in my other… Read More ›

Arts Review: Romeo and Juliet (0)

There’s nothing like spending a Sunday afternoon listening to a full orchestra and watching two star-crossed lovers dance their way to their death.  As the Boston Ballet’s rendition of Romeo and Juliet came to a close on April 8th, I was fortunate enough to see one of the last performances of the production.  The classic… Read More ›

Challenges in Maintaining Lesley’s Urban Garden (1)

The thud of a spade, the crisp, damp scent of freshly sewn earth wafting through the air, relentless honking from a tide of passing car, could urban gardening be the wave of the future? With ever expanding cities and with it a fascination in organic, non-gmo vegetables, city slickers seem to be on two ends… Read More ›

Men’s Basketball Players Disappointed That “Coach G” Is Leaving (0)

If you are a student-athlete, one of the most important people in your life, in addition to your professors, is your coach.  That is especially true for the members of the men’s basketball team here at Lesley.  I had the good fortune to work for an outstanding coach, Chris Giordano.  And I am disappointed to… Read More ›

Why History Courses Matter Now More Than Ever (2)

The past two years have been confusing to watch.  Many of President Trump’s decisions (such as withdrawing from the Iran Deal or refusing to address climate change) have made no sense to me.   However, one event stuck out:  it was during his first ever State of the Union address in January 2018.  Mr. Trump… Read More ›

Reflections on the D.C. March for our Lives (0)

A few months ago when I was planning a trip down to Washington, D.C. to visit a friend I thought it would just be a normal weekend. We’d see some monuments, go to a museum or two, maybe even make it down in time to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Never in my… Read More ›

As finals begin rolling around, it’s important to keep an eye on your physical and mental health. The last few weeks of the semester are regarded as the craziest; the late-night study sessions interspersed with irregular sleeping patterns; the coffee-buzzed cramming at the Student Center; and the snacks that are consumed in an effort to… Read More ›

I’m a creative writing major and a literature minor, so books are my life! I love to read, and I love hearing authors talk about their work; so, I was excited to learn about an interesting series of talks at the Boston Public Library.  The one I attended took place on February 3; it was… Read More ›
