Heading into the final stretch for the Spring Semester, time to send the students off with a fun afternoon of games, food, and friendship!
Spring Fling 2015!
A great way to help students defuse before finals, Spring Fling - the product of our incredibly talented and energetic Student Affairs team - fills our city campus with laughs and great memories. This year, we were joined by the Lowell Spinners Mascot, the Canaligator, who took a bite out of more than a few of our students, staff and faculty!
With gorgeous blue skies overhead, and the dynamic energy of our volunteers, this year's outing gets thumbs up all around! Time to sit back and let the pictures of Alyce O'Connell speak for the afternoon!
Good luck on your finals, everyone!
