3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: With the cost of attending over $70k a year, it's hard not to get anxious over whether the price tag is worth it.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are no "bad" dorms at Tufts. Housing isn't guaranteed after Sophomore year, but most people choose to live "off-campus" (I put it in quotes since many off-campus houses are as close or closer to campus as some dorms) regardless of their lottery numbers.

5 College Freshman

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.

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.
