A spirited standing-room-only crowd of elected officials, Lasell neighbors, and College faculty, staff and students packed de Witt Hall to hear Newton Mayor Setti Warren and Lasell President Michael B. Alexander speak; performances by a student-faculty African percussion group, the College's Divine Step Team and College Chorus; a video presentation by the Multicultural Student Union, and the presentation of essay contest awards to students of Newton's Williams and Lincoln-Eliot Elementary Schools.
