The vigil followed the evacuation of the Dartmouth campus on Friday, and the disclosure that one of the Boston Marathon Bombing suspects was a student at UMass Dartmouth. 

University officials say counselors and clergy members will remain on campus this week to assist students who may need their help.

According to court records filed in Federal Court, investigators found a “large pyrotechnic” in the UMass Dartmouth dorm room where Marathon Bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev stayed. 

The F-B-I searched the room on Sunday, and also found a black jacket and white hat of the same general appearance as those worn by the suspects at the Boston Marathon.  Investigators also found b-b’s in the room.
