STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Wilmington’s Victoria Capone Presents At Lasell University Symposium

Below is an announcement from Lasell University via Merit:

NEWTON, MA — Victoria Capone, a Lasell University student from Wilmington, presented at the University’s Fall Career Readiness Symposium in December.

Capone discussed their involvement with studio1851, the student-run retail business at Lasell University. Capone presented an in-depth look at studio1851’s retail operations and merchandising strategies, sharing lessons learned from working at a small, student-run start-up. Capone also participated in the release of the Fall 2020 issue of Polished, Lasell’s award-winning, student-run magazine on fashion and culture. Capone was the magazine’s managing editor.

The December 2020 event showcased the work of Capone and more than 150 other students in a dynamic digital format, a triumph for flexible teaching and learning amid COVID-19. The December 2020 event was reimagined to celebrate and showcase the ties between career preparedness and Connected Learning, thanks to a three-year grant from the Davis Educational Foundation.

All Symposium presentations focused on four of the National Association of Colleges and Employers’ (NACE) career-readiness competencies: Global and Intercultural Fluency, Professional and Work Ethic, Leadership, and Career Management.

“The Fall Career Readiness Symposium showcased student work and experiences, especially ways in which students have applied Connected Learning to develop their careers through internships,” said Provost Eric Turner. “The event highlighted competencies in leadership and global/intercultural fluency with an emphasis on ways our students lead and serve by example.”
