5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes, professors, and opportunities at Tufts are all amazing. I've had many new experiences teaching workshops and tutoring that I never thought I would have.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Tufts has excellent health (including mental) services. Tufts also has a very accessible police department and I have never felt unsafe while on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This college has excellent career services. I get weekly emails from various departments that regard job and internship opportunities. Students studying International Relations, Engineering, and are Pre-Med especially have wonderful resources considering the graduate schools at Tufts.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I absolutely love my dorm as it is a special housing. The rooms are unusually large, the fellow residents are wonderful, and it has one of the best locations on campus.

Greek Life: My college has a very low-key greek life. They are only known for having incredibly rich members and crowded parties that have lots of alcohol.

Athletics: The athletic facilities are incredible. Everything is brand new, extremely well maintained, and has every type of workout resource one could think of.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The academic courses are indeed rigorous but all of the material that I am learning is extremely engaging and I feel that just about everything I do is meaningful.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus police as well as the student body itself does not tolerate sexual assault, or any other kind of violence or injustice.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had an excellent experience so far at Tufts. I have made friends, been able to focus on my academics, and I have had a great time.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Especially as an engineer, I feel like my opportunities are endless. I can do whatever I set my mind to, and Tufts has helped a lot with that.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am biased, because I made out like a bandit. If you have friends with high lottery numbers, you can make it just about anywhere. I am extremely satisfied for my housing next year.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not a member of Greek life, so it is hard to say. Based on what my friends say, they really enjoy it.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Especially as an individual who played sports in high school, I wish we had a little more school spirit for things like football. We have the size to have tailgating, and as a liberal arts school, that is extremely rare. I enjoy attending the events.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Tufts is a great learning environment. Students are competitive, but not to the point where we're out to get each other. The engineering program is showing huge strides, and it seems like it's rapidly improving. It's not known for engineering, probably because of the size of the school. However, the students are all highly motivated and it seems that the engineering school is only going to get better.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Boston is great and should be a good place to check out at night. Tufts is pretty active at night with frats, apartments, and even dorms throwing parties.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Pretty good parties at dorms and at off campus houses. Underage students definitely can find somewhere to party on campus and around if you get to know the right people.

Academics: Great classes, intelligent professors, manageable course load. ExCollege is awesome and you should check it out. Some majors are better than others, but you will get a good education no matter what.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: International students everywhere! We do have a problem with holding onto a strong black and hispanic population at our school but we are trying to solve that!

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are people who drink and there are those who don't. Many club get togethers involve alcohol or weed but you are not pressured to have it.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I never felt unsafe on campus. The health services employees are always available and we have a phenomenal emergency medical service.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Tufts got to me. I can't place what exactly it is, but I can't imagine myself anywhere else. The people, the area, the classes, and the culture are phenomenal.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The local northeastern area thinks very highly of Tufts and many people around the country understand that Tufts prepares very nice candidates for the jobs available. The career center is always there to help and offers seminars, one on one's, resume building, interview coaching, and everything inbetween. Some majors have internship specialists and there is a career fair almost every season.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: These dorms are not hotels and you will definitely feel like you are in a standard dorm, but the living community is above all else. Many of the dorms have been built to help with social interaction and I have made most of my friends from my dorm. Of course, the dorms need to be renovated and some of the facilities are sub-par, but nothing a maintenance report can't fix.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are only 4 sororities and 9 fraternities. They are definitely known for not being hard on their pledges and are usually pretty good at throwing parties. The student population for greek life consists of about 25% of the student population, but no one acts like it's their entire life.

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.
