The students at UMass Lowell wrapped up the semester by participating in a great event focusing on stress relief and good health at the Recreation Center. Tracy and Justin, along with help from staff and students, really out did themselves! Below are a few of the 60 stories posted at the Sequin of Kindness booth.
