Tufts is in a very peaceful town. But the advantage is that it's not too far from Boston so you get the best of both worlds! You can live in a peaceful place and then take the train or bus into Boston if you want to go into the city. There's so much to do in Boston and even in some of it's surrounding towns. And there are so many schools so connecting with other college students is easy!

I am very happy with my program. It is very unique in that it is practical right from the start and it will change how you think about the basic things in your environment. My Professors are also very connected and hence they can make life very easy when it comes to job opportunities

I didn't have to go through any special process to study my major. I just had to find an advisor and declare the major. However, I took a few classes in the major before I declared. This was in order to decide if I really liked the major.

I am currently studying Engineering Psychology. This major is very new to most colleges and hence the department continues to be small. I must say I just decided on this major a year ago and I love it so much! I've learnt so many new things about the basic things around us. If I had the chance I would do it all over again (I'd probably start earlier though). The only thing that worries me is that it is very new and broad at the same time. So I might have to switch to programs like biomedical engineering, consumer product design, industrial engineering or environmental engineering for graduate school. And this would be a whole new experience. I am really interested in making medical devices and I hope I would be able to find a good graduate program to set me on the biomedical engineering path. All in all I love my program!

Boston is an awesome city to be in if you love off-campus dining. Somerville has lots of options, as well (and because there are so many immigrants, there are lots of cuisine varieties!). Many restaurants in the area delivery locally. Grubhub.com is active as well.

We have the best food- so many cereals!!!! And a waffle machine 24/7. Pizza all the time and the dining staff is really nice. Everything is local and organic and has nutrition info. Dining halls stay open during hurricanes, blizzards and terrorist attacks.

The computers at Tufts are great as well as printing
College Sophomore 2013-05-08T16:26:26Z
Tufts is very beautiful on the outside, for the most part. Most of the dorms are hideous on the outside, though, and ever worse on the inside. I am blatantly unimpressed by the facilities at such an elite school, and fully expect that they improve this in the very near future. The athletic center is newly renovated and is very nice. The student center is alright, compared to most buildings. Green spaces are beautiful, though. Tufts is very lacking in traditions, since University officials have done away with a lot of them, especially the famous NQR (naked quad run). This is something that truly makes me sad.
College Sophomore 2013-05-08T16:20:19Z
I enjoy my majors, International Relations and Economics, at Tufts. The IR program offers a divers range of courses that I really appreciate. The workload is most demanding, and there is never time to slack off, but that is expected at a school like this. The facilities are very super par and outdated, something I was not expecting at this school, and that is very disappointing. There is not a lot of accessibility within these programs to jobs and internships, either.
College Sophomore 2013-05-08T16:16:11Z
There is no admissions process for my program at Tufts. You just take the classes that are required for the major (many classes satisfy International Relations requirements) and then you declare by end of sophomore year. To declare, you have to pick your own advisor. You just ask a professor, and they are always more than willing to help you out.
College Sophomore 2013-05-08T16:13:48Z
I am a double major in International Relations and Economics, and I am satisfied with the program. I do not think that I would change my major, as I really enjoy what I do. I plan to work for the government of a European country, or a European firm. I am not that concerned in finding a job, especially because Tufts ensures that one can speak multiple languages and write effectively, something that is crucial in the job market.
College Sophomore 2013-05-08T16:08:06Z
Tufts does not provide very much access to internships. At such an elite university, I would have expected a lot of resources and assistance with finding them, but it's really just not here. This school needs to help provide more tools so students can be competitive in the job market.

You can use the free campus shuttle to get to Davis Square (takes 10 min), and then use the MBTA to get anywhere! There are also a few MBTA bus stops around campus. They keep improving the campus shuttle with GPS tracking and more frequent night service.

The Greek life at Tufts is very underplayed, especially when comparing with traditional Southern schools. Even compared to other Northeastern schools, our fraternities seem not much more than glorified basements (to those outside Greek life). It's the main source of parties for underclassmen before they branch out into knowing older students or get apartments of their own.
Recent Alumnus 2013-05-01T22:26:25Z
The peripheral campus and Davis Square are all great places to be. Although, at night, things can get pretty sketchy in surrounding areas and a few students have been assaulted.
College Sophomore 2013-04-28T21:21:36Z
My biggest complaint is the campus police's strictness in terms of parties. They love to shut down parties all the time, which can get pretty annoying, especially when the parties aren't even rowdy.
College Sophomore 2013-04-28T21:19:51Z
When it's cold and icy/snowy, it sucks, because students have to walk everywhere. It can get pretty slippery so it's a bit scary walking to class sometimes. But the school has snow plows and sand/salt all over campus the minute winter weather hits, so they do a good job with the snow/ice removal. Also, when it's nice out, it's REALLY nice out, and the campus is beautiful. Everyone is outside on a warm, sunny day.
College Sophomore 2013-04-13T22:14:24Z
Basically the only necessary transportation at Tufts is to get from the campus to Davis Square (a subway stop that can take people into Boston). Since a shuttle bus is going from Tufts to Davis quite often, the transportation is okay.
College Junior 2013-04-10T15:17:34Z
It's relatively easy to change majors/getting into a certain program. The only thing you have to do is make sure you'll be taking the classes required for that major. The only difficult thing is changing from the liberal arts school to the engineering school. There are lots of requirements and you have to make sure you do it early on say before second semester sophomore year because there are some classes that you have to take as a freshman from which the rest of the engineering classes build upon.

Health & Safety:
On the Grafton Campus Public Safety reports any incidents via email in addition to lost and found and parking updates. They are very helpful, and the campus always feels very safe.
College Sophomore 2013-03-26T23:50:24Z
This is for the Grafton campus only. Parking for the year on-campus is only $5 and There are four student lots outside Anatomy, the library and wildlife center, and admissions as well as plenty of smaller parking areas around campus. Ticketing is very lenient and on busy days students park in unmarked areas without a problem.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
