About Lowell
map
Lowell Massachusetts is located in northeastern Massachusetts about 25 miles north of Boston and is accessible via the major highways of routes 495, 3, and 93 as well as the MBTA commuter rail.

Lowell's National Park serves as a tribute to the Industrial Revolution and the textile industry that was so much a part of New England in the 19th century. The rehabbed mill buildings, the trolley and canal, and the museums are all part of Lowell's Historical tours.

The 19th century mill buildings host small and large companies at unique financial incentives which serves to promote new growth and development in Lowell. The Lowell Auditorium is a 3,200 seat venue which hosts many of the country's best performers at very reasonable prices.

The city's workforce is computer literate and supported by the schools in the district. Lowell is home to the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and Middlesex Community College. The student population creates a profitable atmosphere for retail businesses in downtown Lowell and surrounding neighborhood.

Lowell is built around the Merrimack River and its diverse canal system which adds to its character and appeal. Residents proudly proclaim that Lowell has something for everyone with its unmatched quality of life.

The late Ed McMahon from the Tonight Show was born in Detroit and grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts. He got his start on television playing a circus clown on the 1950-51 variety series Big Top.

This powerful film explores the change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation's majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature. See the website for more information.

Welcome Day After Party for Honors

On behalf of everyone here in the Honors College at UMass Lowell, we would like to extend to you a warm welcome. We are the Honors Ambassador Council, a student-run organization wholeheartedly dedicated to connecting with our incoming honors students. More than anything, we want to invite you into our community and share with you everything that we have come to love here at our university.

 

For this very reason, we have put together the Welcome Day After Party for Honors. Our event will be held following the University’s Welcome Day on April 11th, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in University Crossing. Check-in will begin at 12:30 p.m. in University Crossing, our kickoff will be at 1:00 p.m., and refreshments will be provided. For those of you attending Welcome Day for Engineering, Sciences, and FAHSS, we ask that you please take UMass Lowell buses from your respective campuses to University Crossing. For those in Business and Health who attended the March 28th Welcome Day, please park in North Campus' Riverside Lots or the North Campus Parking Garage. If you require special parking accomodations, please contact the Honors Ambassador Council. Transportation back to your cars on either North or South Campus will be provided via circulating UMass Lowell buses. Follow this link for directions to the aforementioned parking locations: http://www.uml.edu/maps/#/parking


At the After Party you’ll enjoy an informal meet-and-greet with our wonderful Honors Ambassadors, student researchers, and Honors faculty from nearly every major. You’ll get to see first-hand what the Honors College is all about. There will also be an ongoing jam session, video game competitions, and student research presentations. Plus, for each conversation you hold with an Honors faculty or student, you’ll be rewarded with raffle tickets, which will put you in the running to win some great things for your freshman year – including gift baskets, scholarships, and even an iPad Mini!


Students' guests will have a special information session in Moloney Hall (on the second floor of University Crossing) about the Honors College, led by our fantastic Dean Jim Canning of the Honors College. At our welcome booth, you’ll be able to get information about our requirements, learn about on-campus Honors housing, and look at your Honors class offerings for freshman year.

 

The Welcome Day After Party for Honors is a place where you and your guests will be able to enjoy yourselves and get a taste of the full UMass Lowell Honors experience while beginning relationships that will last a lifetime. We can't wait to share with you the vibrant, ambitious, and intelligent family that we have here in the Honors College at UMass Lowell!
