UMass Dartmouth to hold campus-wide vigil


DARTMOUTH, Mass. (WPRI) — UMass Dartmouth is set to hold a campus-wide vigil Tuesday to mark the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Students, faculty, and religious leaders will gather at 2:15 p.m. for a moment of silence, followed by a ringing of the bells.

The campus was shut down in the wake of last year’s attacks after investigators discovered one of the suspects, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was a registered student.

Three friends of Tsarnaev’s, who were also students there, are also awaiting trial. Two are accused of tampering with evidence, and the third is accused of making false statements.
