Register by following a link in an email sent to students May 20. Registration links and information including requirements for proper adherence to social distancing measures are available in the mylasalle Portal under the Housing and Dining page.

#ExplorersUnite to support student scholarships

Today is La Salle University’s 7th annual Day of Giving. So far in 2020, the University has raised $275,000 for the student scholarship fund. Today’s goal: Double that total by raising $275,000 in 24 hours. Amid the pandemic, La Salle’s students need help now more than ever. Gifts will provide access to a La Salle education for current and future Explorers. In times of need, #ExplorersUnite. Make a gift today.

In the media

Will aspiring nurses think twice about their careers in medicine? No, said Emma Capro, ’20, a recent graduate of the School of Nursing and Health Sciences. “Something we’re taught in class every day is that we’re meant to help people,” said Capro, who along with Pat DiGiacomo, Ed.D., chair of undergraduate nursing program, spoke with the Harrisburg Patriot-News.
