Hello there! My name is Abigail, and this website you've stumbled upon is a big part of the reason I decided to apply to Tufts in 2013, hailing from a tiny town in western Nebraska. What I fell in love with then, and over four years as a student, was how unabashedly people invested themselves in their passions. Since graduation, I've taken up residence in Bendetson Hall, where I'm lucky to spend the better part of the year reading stories: the ones you write. The college process was overwhelming to me when I applied, as a student from a low-income, rural background. Hopefully you'll find something here, in my blogs or in others, to make you feel supported—and empowered to tell your story.
