Tufts takes a lot of pride in its campus buildings and facilities, and they are always well kept and well maintained. There has been a flurry of construction over the past 10 years, with more new buildings and renovations every year. Still, students who wish that Tufts could compete with the facilities at larger, more well-endowed schools can always find room to complain.
Generally, students complain that the buildings are a little too small. There are minor problems with overcrowding, but with such a small student body, this is only noticeable during busy times. Some of the recent additions, like Dowling Hall and the Tisch Library, have greatly improved students’ quality of life. There is something new on campus every fall, and Tufts is steadily trying to keep up with the growing needs of the student body. As far as meeting these needs, the school has come close, but hasn’t quite hit the mark yet. A water park on campus wouldn’t hurt.
