College Sophomore

Nightlife: I honestly don't know, I've never been to a frat party and am not really interested.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There's not a ton to do IMMEDIATELY off campus, but Davis Square and Boston are great for dining, sports, concerts, etc. and totally accessible.

College Sophomore

Parking: I don't have any personal experience with parking, but I hear it's expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The buildings are pretty old and could definitely be renewed. However, it's a great way to make new friends.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid is great! They will work with you and if you have any questions, are more than willing to help.

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: If you want a strong social scene, this is not the school for you! Most parties are held at frats.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The network reliability and speed is great. It is usually pretty fast. You may need a personal computer to take to classes and the library does get crowded during exams. Printing can get pretty expensive if you don't own a printer.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is a lot of marijuana use but I have never been pressured to take part. I feel like there is more pressure on alcohol; if you do not drink, you might feel left out of the small social scene we have.

4 College Student

Campus Strictness: It's not overwhelmingly strict, but it allows you to feel safe on campus

4 College Student

Majors: Very intense majors and competition, there is a good variety of majors

3 College Student

Majors: Professor Chew sucks, a lot. And all of the Bio weed out classes are a pain in the butt

4 College Student

Transportation: The Joey has frequent times and it is usually somewhat near the time it is supposed to be on schedule

2 College Student

Diversity: Essentially everyone is a rich white kid, and people from different ethnicities don't interact with other ethnicites

2 College Student

Athletics: No one cares about the sports teams. New athletic facility is beautiful and super expensive

2 College Student

Parking: So hard to find parking and it coasts a fortune

2 College Student

Nightlife: Very few options, if you're not getting drunk at a party, you're hanging out in the dorms with your friends

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: It's boring and even though we are close to Boston, students rarely leave campus

3 College Student

Greek Life: Very few frats, only one sorority, parties stink and the houses are gross

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Not much to choose from except for the restaurants in Davis

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Some dorms are much better than the others. Not much of a social scene...

4 College Student

Drug Safety: I don't know anyone who uses

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't really learned much....

1 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities are literal s*** holes. Basically every building needs renovation.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is so disgusting and no variety or healthy options. I hate it.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The suck so much and gave me no where near what I needed.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Most students who make the decision to attend Tufts are happy with their experience. Overall, Tufts has so many programs and activities, it’s impossible for one student to take advantage of everything the school has to offer in four short years, but since there are so many different types of students at Tufts all with different interests, there is definitely something for everyone. The biggest complaint coming from the students seems to be adjusting to the new lifestyle and environment, whether at the school itself or the Boston area in general.

The Tufts experience goes far beyond the classroom, and provides students easy access to the ideal academic and social surroundings. The combination of school opportunities and local culture give Tufts its own distinctive flavor that allows students to grow in ways they never could have imagined. Most of the negative experiences that Tufts students gripe about are also good growth experiences, such as dealing with the weather or actually having to get around without a car. Ultimately, graduates are proud of their education and their school. Students who graduate from Tufts enter the real world focused, confident, and prepared to face even the toughest challenges that the workplace can throw at them. The many successful Tufts alumni can attest to this.
