San Jose, California
Potential Major: Biology
Jump forward and don’t be afraid to look further than just your state or region. When I was researching about colleges, I narrowed most of my searches towards colleges in California. I was afraid of leaving friends, leaving home, and leaving the near-perfect weather. It was somewhat a barrier to me because I wasn’t really looking for what fit; I was merely looking for what would resemble home. But luckily through the encouragements of my friends and counselors, I began to look for colleges outside of California. Here I am today, excited to come to Boston as part of the class of 2018!

Tufts does a great job of getting you adjusted. Tufts provides a plethora of opportunities for students to explore their interests in many areas on campus. At the beginning of the semester there is a big activities fair for students to get involved with the many clubs on campus with interests ranging from MMA to Synthetic Biology. With advice from orientation leaders, students sign up for many clubs settling into the ones that they find the most interesting and meeting new friends.
