You’re visiting Tufts! This page is designed to help you plan the most informative and fulfilling visit possible.
Step 1: Consider an Activity
Information sessions, conducted by Admissions Officers, are generally offered from one to three times daily Monday–Friday. Engineering information sessions are generally held on select Fridays during the academic year and over the summer. Transfer student Q&A sessions are held on four Wednesdays during the winter. We try to accommodate everyone, but ask that you register ahead of time (step 2) so that we can find appropriate space on campus.
Campus tours, led by current students, are offered several times a day and last about one hour. A supplemental athletics tour will be offered Fridays beginning in March. We ask that you register online before your campus tour (step 2). Current engineering students lead campus tours following the engineering group information sessions on specified Fridays in the fall and spring.
Class visits - Classes are available on a walk-in basis. Click through to the class schedule and take your pick. Students should plan to show up at the classroom ten minutes early to check in with the professors and stay for the entire class. Please also come to Dowling Hall at some point during the day so we can be sure we have you registered and in our database. Sorry parents, but faculty have requested that these classes be limited to prospective students only.
Lunch with a student host - an option for high school students during the fall and spring semesters - is one of the best ways to get up close and personal with a current Tufts undergraduate. Lunch hosting is offered Monday through Friday from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. from February 3rd-March 31st (excluding February 17, March 17, 18, 19, 20, 21). Please email email@example.com to schedule a lunch host (we ask that you register at least one week in advance).
Step 2: Pick a Date & Register
