Lasell University

Carrie He of Boston named to Lasell University Dean's List, presents at Lasell University Career Readiness Symposium

Carrie He, a Lasell University student from Boston,, was named to the Dean's List for their academic performance in the fall 2022 semester.

To be named to the Dean's List, Lasell students must complete at least 12 credits as a full-time student and achieve a semester GPA of 3.5 or higher.

Carrie He also presented at the institution's annual Career Readiness Symposium.

He delivered, "Psi Chi Presents: The Everyday Use of Psychology in our Lives," a presentation on the events and information sessions held at Lasell to help students take care of their mental and physical health, as well as prepare for careers after college. The presentation incorporated the NACE competencies of equity & inclusion, professionalism, career & self-development, and civic & community engagement.

He also facilitated a co-curriular event for the community, "African Diaspora Day," which celebrated the cultural disconnectedness of Black ethnic groups across the globe as part of their final project in a course on Black psychology. They worked with their peers to implement the day's various activities, including a keynote speaker on Black health, "education stations" to share what they have learned in the course, and a Black/African-American-owned vendor and food marketplace from the Greater Boston community.

Lasell's Career Readiness Symposium takes place every fall and asks students to present original research, projects, or field skills that align with core career competencies shared by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). Part of the Symposium's goal is to collectively assist students in identifying and pursuing opportunities that allow them to become proficient in those areas as preparation for successful transitions into the workplace.

This year's Symposium "celebrated student scholarship and discovery," said Provost Eric Turner. "The energy and excitement generated from experiencing this event at Lasell is extraordinary."
