Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Bring your own computer.
  • Do not dedicate your whole life to one activity right away, and shop around for a year before becoming super-involved.
  • Do not try to do everything on your own, sometimes you need help.
  • Fill your math requirement freshman year.
  • Get the 160-meal plan, always, until you have your own kitchen.
  • Go to office hours and ask a lot of questions.
  • Go to the frat parties during orientation week-they are the best parties all year, especially ZBT's jello shots.
  • How cold it gets in the winter.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Call (617) 627-3170 to make a reservation for a group information session as soon as your plans are finalized. Sessions run about an hour long. All interviews are done by alumni interviewers in your area. You will be contacted about an interview shortly after the office has received your application, though interviews are not mandatory.
Campus Tours
Campus tours are led by a Tufts student and are an hour long, and include a view of the campus facilities and landscape. For a listing of tour times, click on the "campus tours" icon on the admissions Web site at http://admissions.tufts.edu/visit.htm#Campus%20Tours.
Overnight Visits
One-night overnight stays are typically available from mid-October through mid-November for high school seniors, and during the month of April for admitted students, including during the April Open House Program. Current Tufts students have volunteered to host prospective high school seniors in their residence hall rooms on a first-come, first-served basis during certain times of the year. Students are available to host Monday through Thursday nights. If you are interested, contact the admissions office or sign up through their Web site at http://admissions.tufts.edu/connection.
