Throughout the month of March, the Lasallian Collegians promoted the Lasallian Core Principle of “Quality Education.” Born out of a brainstorm session during a committee meeting, the students wrote the script, recruited the participants, and produced the video above. This video is a true labor of love and appreciation from the students to our faculty and staff. (Special credit to Trey McGinnis for his video skills.)
