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.
