May 9, 2012
The giant tent is up on Taylor Field and, this weekend, Lasell College will graduate its largest undergraduate and graduate classes to date. The weekend will be full of memorable events including Baccalaureate and the Academic Achievement Awards on Saturday, May 12, followed by Commencement on Sunday, May 13.
The keynote speaker for commencement is 16-term Representative for the Fourth Congressional District of Massachusetts, Barney Frank. Frank announced last fall he will soon retire from his post.
