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 University is an institution that challenges its students to think critically and push themselves to gain expansive knowledge in several academic realms in the first year. There support system at Tufts is great if you seek it out and commit to using it and the professors treat you with respect and are genuinely interested in crafting you into the best student you can possibly be.

    The students here are brilliant and genuinely nice. So many opportunities, from clubs, to internships, to research projects. And if you can't find them here, Boston is just a T ride away.

  • Dec-09-2015 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    My cousin attends Tufts University, and is graduating in 2016, and has already endured in so many exciting activities because of this school. I've visited the campus a couple of times, it's very relaxed, and all of the students were very welcoming to new people. Many of them are very encouraging and equally as talented.

    Tufts is a community of Global Citizens-- students and faculty who want to make this world a better place from our campus community to the global community. People here each have unique passions that could work to isolate us all; however, Tufts magically connects us all as friends and family, bridging our differences into a sense of admiration and sparking perspective-altering discussions.

    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.
