Most Helpful Review for Tufts University

The classes are so informative but it just sucks that as a freshman, you're stuck taking big intro lecture classes. I definitely learned a lot more after getting my prerequisite classes done first semester and taking smaller more focused classes second semester.

    Tufts is a prestigious university dedicated to assuring that its students get the most out of their Tufts education. The staff is extremely helpful and willing to help students for as long as they need. Tufts is highly recommended to any senior and it is certainly an unforgettable experience!

    Tufts is certainly a place that fosters discussion. Though it's about as homogeneous as you'd expect a small, northeastern american university to be, its minority groups and their opinions are well-respected and represented, and Tufts students are, almost to a one, very accepting. Academics-wise, class size has been my favourite aspect of the Tufts education: in the first semester of my freshman year, three of my four courses had twenty students or fewer.

    Tufts is a fun, quirky place bursting with fun things to do, although they might not quite fit into the norm of college activities. The academics are rigorous but teachers are generally passionate and happy to help. If you can't get help from teachers, almost every student has a wide support base of friends and resources from various places.

    Tufts is a great school for the serious student. Its strengths are international relations and business and pre-professional (law, med, MBA). The relationship between the graduate schools and the undergrad campus is integrated enough to enrich your experience because you are able to mix with people studying and researching topics more advanced than the basic core courses. Tufts is not a party or big sports school, but there is a social life with art/culture and plenty of low-key sport opportunities for walk-on types.

    Tufts is an awesome school and each year continues to climb in the rankings, and deservedly so. The academic (and social) community at Tufts is very collaborative and accepting, and I think the cutthroat competition you'll see at Tufts' peer schools just doesn't exist here, in the best way possible. This is a place where you'll be comfortable being you.

    Tufts is an amazing school that in my opinion, is not given enough credit. The academics are tough but will definitely prepare you for graduate school and your career. Not only are the academics top notch, but the atmosphere is such a warm and friendly one to be around which is why I love Tufts!
