American International College in Springfield.

Lasell University in Newton.
Elizabeth Bona, a Lasell University student from North Adams, presented at the Newton university's Fall Career Readiness Symposium in December.
Bona shared a presentation on an original concept developed for a course on food and beverage management in hospitality called "Tipsy Traveler."
