For my Graphic Design Senior Seminar project at Assumption College, I chose to create a video describing how my experiences growing up in Lowell shaped me to be the person I am today. No matter where you go, you can’t forget where you are from.
Lowell is a city in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, in the United States. With an estimated 2014 population of 109,941 it is the fourth-largest city in Massachusetts, after Boston, Worcester, and Springfield, and the second-largest in what the U.S. Census Bureau defines as Boston’s metropolitan area.
Incorporated in 1826, Lowell became known as the cradle of the American Industrial Revolution, and many of the city’s historic sites have been preserved by the National Park Service. Lowell is home to the University of Massachusetts Lowell, a Carnegie-classified research university and the second largest public university in Massachusetts. Along with Cambridge, Lowell is one of Middlesex County’s historical county seats prior to the abolition of county government in 1997.
