Local Area: Very close to Boston, easy to get to on the subway and buses. Surrounding area is a little sketchy some times but campus is safe

Athletics: Tufts has some great sports teams but the student body as a whole very rarely attends games in large numbers. Most of the attendees are athletes of other sports

Greek Life: Pretty good mix of Greek and non-Greek students. Nobody really cares whether you are a member or not, you can get into most parties if you want to

Campus Housing: Dorms are typical college dorms. Rooms are pretty small but big enough to do whatever it is you need to do. Includes both suite style and the normal hall plans

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.
