College Fest!Posted: September 26, 2011
By: Kathleen Armstrong
It’s that time of year again! The time when vendors from all over come together to give college kids free items. Yes, I said FREE! Granted most of these items are sample sizes but just try and grab a few and you’ll have a full size item in no time. On October 1st from 12:00p.m.- 7:00p.m. and October 2nd from 12:00p.m-6:00p.m. at the Hynes Convention Center, College Fest will be opening its doors to college kids from all over the Boston area. Nearly 15,000 college students from over 100 schools attend college fest. This is not just an event where students learn about local or national businesses, but also a time for students to meet new friends.
There are live performances from artists like We The Kings, Chris Webby and Stereo Telescope just to name a few. Normally tickets are $10 at the door but Lasell is offering a discounted rate of $5. Students are able to purchase two tickets at a time. They are now on sale in the Office of Student Actives, located on the second floor of the Arnow Campus Center. Tickets sell fast so I suggest going as soon as possible to grab your tickets because this is not something you want to pass up.
