There are 4 comments on Ten Years after BU’s Lu Lingzi Died in the Boston Marathon Bombings, the Scholarship in Her Name Keeps Student Dreams Alive

  1. So sorry for the loss of such a young and promising life. Lingzi Lu and I took the applied stats qualifying exam the same Sat. before the Boston Marthon that Monday. It was a big loss for the stats and BU community. Glad to hear that a fellowship has been established in her name that students are benefitting from it.

  2. I no longer lived in Brookline in 2013, but graduated from CAS in 1793. I watched the 2013 Marathin on TV and it was devastating to me, and I’m sure the many viewrs who watched the horrors unfold. I’m sorry to hear that the death sentence (in MA?) is being reviwed. the life of a killer is in no way equal to that of a Lu Lingzi.
