Seniors, Underclassmen Take Part in Lasell's Traditional Torchlight Parade

May 7, 2012

For more than 100 years, Lasell's graduating seniors have marched with torches ready to pass on knowledge and wisdom to underclassmen and celebrate the end of their College careers.

The annual Torchlight Parade kicked off from the Central Parking Lot on Tuesday, May 1 at dusk. From there the parade, which typically involves hundreds of seniors as well as underclassmen, administrators, faculty and staff, winds through campus down Woodland Road to the Crow's Nest, located near Yamawaki Art & Cultural Center.

The Crow's Nest, a wooden structure and platform, has long been the site for Senior end-of the year activities at Lasell. At the Crow's Nest, graduating students gave farewell speeches and handed their torches to underclassman in a gesture that symbolizes the passing of experience and knowledge to a new generation.

President Alexander Responds to the Tragedy in Orlando  Thursday, June 16, 2016We the people of the United States cherish our freedoms. Whether it be the freedom to say what we want, to assemble in groups of our choosing, to follow the religions of our choice, to vote as our conscience demands, to own and carry weapons, to start new businesses and make money, and to move about as we please -- these are values we hold dear and are reluctant to compromise.
