Dining off campus can be a great way to bring a little more excitement into your diet, and it’s also a great way to explore the local communities. There are some restaurants already affiliated with Tufts through the MOPS program, and Medford and Somerville have some excellent dining options. If you want to trek a little further, Harvard Square and surrounding Boston, particularly the North End, are full of hundreds of different kinds of foods and local specialties.
Students will often go out to big dinners, lunches, or brunches at local restaurants. Be careful, though, because going out to dinner a lot can get expensive, so make sure to limit dining out to special occasions. Not to worry, though, “settling” for Tufts on-campus eating options certainly does not spell out d-o-o-m for anyone.
