  • Seung Hyeon (Andy) Hwang , '13

  • Aimee Russo ,'11, '12
    English alumna earning her master's in teaching through the Fast Track Program, from Northbridge, lives off campus

    "Other schools made me feel limited... here, I can major in English and still play in the band. I want to be a teacher... and UMass Lowell's fast track program will allow me to get a bachelor's and master's degree in 5 years... and I won't owe my entire life in loans. "
