Medford and Somerville have little to offer if you're craving constant excitement and activity. It's mostly residential, there's not a lot of stores/restaurants to choose from, and you're constantly surrounded by the same people who go to your school.

There's definetly a lot of partying on the weekends, and it is relatively easy to get drugs and alcohol then. I wouldn't say there are any hard drugs used on campus though.

Programs are not difficult to get into, professors are willing to help you in any way.
College Freshman 2013-11-23T05:45:51Z
I have never had an internship on campus, but I know they are easily accessible if you contact the right people.
College Freshman 2013-11-23T05:43:44Z
There's nothing directly near campus, you really have to go into Boston if you want to have fun.

Tufts kids tend to stay on campus. Most underclassmen go to frats and stand in long lines to get into an overheated basement filled with sweaty people and cheap beer. Uppeclassmen host small parties at their houses off-campus with a similar kind of vibe, although often with hard alcohol. The local bar scene is limited to a few places in Davis Square (The Burren on Thursdays and PHP on Tuesdays) and is the same type of thing, too - cheap beer and loud music. They're easy to walk to.

There are a lot of options to choose from, and most juniors and seniors opt to live in a leased house. Dealing with landlords can be a little tricky though.

Pretty Lenient on Alcohol and Weed, Tough on Noise Violations Off Campus and Honor Code – Tufts police are cracking down on underage drinking and weed, and they're quick to shut a party down, but not many people get in trouble. The first time you get in trouble for alcohol (getting sent to the hospital, having it in your room in a dorm) you just get a warning. They respond quickly to noise complaints by neighbors and if there's an honor code issue...you're in huge trouble with the disciplinary committee. Overall, the administration just wants you to be safe.

Administration Accepting, Alcohol More Popular – The drug scene at Tufts is minimal - limited to marijuana and study drugs like Adderall. However, alcohol is abundant. Most students drink heavily on weekends (Thursday-Saturday) and on Tuesday night (Pub night). The administration has a moderate alcohol policy - first visit is a warning, then you get in trouble. Drugs are treated more severely and not under Mass. law, which allows a certain amount of weed.

The office is very eager to please, although making appointments can be difficult.

Parking at Tufts is expensive, and parking on the streets of Somerville and Medford can be too if you don't have a Mass. license plate. There are big lots on campus and you can get a parking pass from TUPD.

There are plenty of available computers at the library and computer lab with all the software needed to complete any assignment.
College Sophomore 2013-09-07T15:34:32Z
The public transportation is good, such as the Joey and GoSafe, but the Joey pick-ups are often at locations that do not go to where I want to go.
College Sophomore 2013-08-21T23:42:39Z
It's there if you look hard enough. Police are unforgiving, however.
College Sophomore 2013-08-21T23:41:57Z
Not gonna lie: when it's sunny, the weather is perfect and campus glows, but when it snows and winter is apparent (which is the majority of the year), things can become depressing fast. Be prepared for winter.
College Sophomore 2013-08-21T23:34:34Z
Both Medford and Somerville hold a special small-town charm, but the locals are hardly friendly.
College Sophomore 2013-08-21T23:10:33Z
While Greek life tends to play a rather significant role in the lives of freshman who need a place to go on a saturday night, it hardly proves integral to the social success of upperclassmen. It's easy to rush the easiest two sororities and fraternities if you wish. Overall, its fun but not totally necessary if you don't want it.
College Sophomore 2013-08-21T22:57:32Z
There are tons of places with a huge variety of offering in Davis square and the medford/somerville area. Many of these places deliver too!

Tufts is the only university in the country that has a Clinical Psychology program for undergraduates. All of the professors who teach are either practicing clinicians and/or do research. A year long internship with one-on-one interaction with patients is also a requirement to graduate in Clinical Psychology.
College Junior 2013-08-12T23:02:20Z
I have lots of friends who are in greek life and love it. Personally, I do not understand the purpose of a fraternity/sorority so I am no the best person to ask. I do know that they do not do crazy hazing stuff and with the sororities if a girl rushes she has to get into one of them.
College Junior 2013-08-12T22:57:24Z
Both of my majors have internships as part of the graduation requirement, which I love! Most students do their internships senior year.
College Junior 2013-08-12T22:53:23Z
I have had some horrible roommates in the past so my dorm experience was very poor. Also, residential facilities is known for screwing people over.
College Junior 2013-08-12T22:51:51Z
So far, I am really happy with my two majors (Clinical Psychology and Community Health and minor in studio art). I have taken very interesting classes with amazing professors!
College Junior 2013-08-12T22:49:44Z
It was actually surprisingly easy to declare. I just had to get the advisor I wanted to sign a form. The clinical psychology program is usually small, so I did not have to compete for a spot.

The food in and around Boston/Cambridge is amazing. Recently I've discovered Ethiopian, Indian, and Middle Eastern.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
