What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I took a variety of classes in a variety of different areas. I liked that the classes in the Computer Science field I took were rigorous, but often I felt that the classes I took were more rigorous than they needed to be in order to learn what needed to be learned. Professors for each class should understand that students take other classes as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Clubs are a must, and the majority of students are involved in more than one extracurricular activity. There are sports teams which offer a chance to walk on, but are still heavy with recruits. The professors are amazing, and the majority of them have at least 2 office hours a week. Being an elite, private school, all of the classes are difficult, but not unmanageable. Teachers are very understanding. Some classes are group work oriented and some are exam oriented, it just depends on the professors. The campus is beautiful and the dining halls offer amazing vegetarian and vegan options. The campus could use more diversity, but the Asian, Latinx, and Africana centers are great places for students to find community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have said it before, and I'll say it again, but I do love Tufts. The people there are great, and while I have heard shallow things like "Tufts doesn't have good looking people" or the school is "filled with the elite," these are not absolute truths. While there are a fair number of people there with money and other interesting people, Tufts people are good. There are many varied interests, the education is top-notch, and there are many great faculty members. Now, for the ugly. The school is expensive, and if you go, you better be certain that this is what you want. The school is not a party school, which could be an advantage or a disadvantage depending on who are. Clubs are your best bet for meeting people. Wealth inequality *is* a thing at Tufts that is very talked about on campus, and there are some vapid people on campus. Some dorms are subpar, and struggle with a few "neighbors" Dig deep, and you'll find a lot of good people who just want what's best for the world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tufts is a great school where you will receive an excellent education. Professors are personable and accessible, and they actually teach undergraduates--you won't have a TA except in a mandatory study group, not the lecture section of the class. There are dozens of extracurricular offerings and everyone can find something they enjoy. However, Tufts does not do the best job in supporting its students: health services is lacking and support for struggling students is hard to find or nonexistent.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Because of its medium size, Tufts is comprised of all sorts of people which means everyone can find a place they belong. There's always stuff to do on and off campus especially since we're so close to Boston. The academics are challenging but, really incredible. Great place to go to school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Classes are informative, professors are welcoming and want students to succeed. Dining hall food gets tiring but is definitely better than average. Off campus housing is a mess- broker's fee and Somerville housing prices make it likely to be more expensive than living on campus and many of the house seem to be in disrepair. However, generally on campus housing is nice. Social culture and Greek life are much larger than online sources seem to suggest.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tufts is a wonderful university to attend. There are plenty of activities to do on campus if you feel like doing something but don't feel like traveling far. It is also very easy to get to Boston if you feel like going out. Tufts is academically challenging, but fosters incredible learning.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rigorous and enlightening classes to match the dedication and headstrong students. Everyone is deeply aware of real world issues, and there's nothing that can't be discussed. This is a liberal school, and in an area where the city is easily accessible as well.
