I have visited Tuft many times. I like all the academics and sports it has to offer. It ever has a chess club (chess is my favorite sport). The environment is great as well. In short, it is a great college with lots of opportunities for everyone.

I was nervous, but found there was nothing to worry about the moment I first walked on to campus.
