Registration for Jumbo Days is now live in your Tufts portal!
Our admitted student open houses are aptly titled "Jumbo Days," not only for our beloved mascot but for the number of activities we fit in. There's a reason for this: we believe that Jumbo Days are the best way for admitted students to get to know campus on a deeper level. You'll meet current students, check out available clubs, and have the chance to learn from professors in mock classes. If you are able to make it to one of the open houses on Monday, April 13, Friday, April 17, or Friday, April 24, we strongly encourage you to join us!
We recommend that BFA and Combined Degree students attend the April 24 Jumbo Day, where they will be able to meet their admitted peers and attend programming on both campuses. See the SMFA schedule here.
Tentative Schedule of Events:
7:00 am - 8:15 am

The Academic Experience: Students will choose from classes taught by Tufts faculty in the arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, mathematics, and engineering.

Community Fair and Farewell Reception: Join the Tufts Community Fair under the Big Top, where many Tufts student groups and other organizations will be represented. Then, stop by the Bendetson Hall patio to say goodbye to the admissions staff and take a snack for the road.
The night before each of the Jumbo Days, expect student performances, on-campus movies, dinner in the dining halls, and more. All admitted students registered for Jumbo Days are welcome to attend the evening programming. Unfortunately, overnight spaces are limited, offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and are only available to students who applied Regular Decision.
