Health & Safety: feel like they're trying to improve

Greek Life: overall the gendered elitist system of fraternities and sororities is antiquated

Health & Safety: Health and safety here are great. The administration is transparent about crimes in the area and offers safety tips and precautions and regular updates. Mental health services, health services, safe havens, etc. are all made clearly available for those in need of help. Police are a welcome and friendly presence on campus, and they care most of all about the students. They are not out to get anyone.

Campus Housing: Housing in general is great at Tufts. Tiny doubles were fairly disconcerting when I visited other schools but as a freshman my room is very spacious (for a dorm). The lottery system may give you grief but there are more good dorms than bad.

Greek Life: Greek life, like sports, is present at Tufts but not a reason to attend. They are pretty low-key and care more about their community than their national affiliations. They throw the parties and have a presence on campus, but there is no pressure or judgement regardless of whether or not you rush.

Athletics: Sports are NOT what Tufts revolves around, but athletes are always a presence on campus and in our campus news. Despite that, the gym is accessible and popular among students, and healthy living is always encouraged and doable.

Overall Experience: Tufts is an amazing school that makes itself a home for people who have a diversity of interests and whom succeed both academically and socially. Admissions looks not only for smart people, but for good people, and it shows.

Health & Safety: I believe that the campus does try to help create a safe environment for students and victims of sexual assault, but as with any campus, students can be at risk. Further, I do believe that the college social atmosphere creates some dangerous situations for sexual assault and general lack of safety. There is always room for improvement.

Greek Life: Greek life is very important to a number of people in college. It not only plays a big hand for them in creating the full college experience, but sororities and fraternities can also offer their members support and a good resource for making connections towards their future careers. For me, I don't have much of an interest in them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The application process is always a very stressful and complicated process, but it seemed clear that the program was set up to be as accessible and clear as possible. It also created a number of opportunities for me to put my own hopes for grad school and my own personal accomplishments to the forefront.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics seem to be a very important part of campus life for many people. It can be a wonderful resource for many students, and can particularly helpful for creating accessibility for a lot of students. For my own personal experience I don't engage in the sports programs my school offers so I can't really speak about them too much.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: Health services fee is mad expensive, but it covers for so many things.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Professors are always available and none of the classes are taught by grad students or TAs, unless it's a lab and is supervised by a TA.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I am a freshman so I don't know but I have heard it's pretty good.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Dorms at Tufts are pretty comfy. They are certainly not the best but utilities are relatively new, and rooms are spacious.

3 College Student

Greek Life: We are not a party school for sure, and parties at Tufts are not that "lit" :(.

Athletics: I go to the gym all the time and the facilities are pretty good. While varsity sports is not a big part of Tufts life, you still have much opportunity to attend events and see them.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Honestly, I love Tufts so much, and it is worth the money. Although my school is crazy expensive and all that, financial aid officers always try to assist students to find ways to finance their Tufts education. When I was a prospective student at other numerous, and mostly prestigious college, the only responses I had from financial aid officers at other school were "I am sorry we don't have anything for international students." However, I was offered so much non-monetary helps and advice from financial aid officers at Tufts, including an RA position, on-campus job, and an exchange program that would help me so much in terms of money. Staff and faculty at Tufts are incredibly helpful and understanding.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
