Here at Tufts, we like to talk about our "vibe." It’s that feeling you get when you step onto campus and witness the daily experiences, interactions, and passions of students and faculty. I want to talk a little bit more about what this actually means, and what makes up the Tufts vibe.
During my time as a student at Tufts, my experiences as a student-athlete and psychology major were different from the vibes of other Tufts students sitting with me in the dining hall or running beside me in the gym. Each student creates their own vibe, contributing to the overall community on campus. Being part of a multifaceted community means that you are constantly changing, adapting, and finding a rhythm to the new interests and challenges that each semester brings.
The vibe of a civil engineer who’s also a member of the Tufts Beelzebubs a capella group is different from that of an SMFA dual degree student who is on the ballroom dance team and works at Tufts Hillel. You might become a premed bio major who minors in entrepreneurial leadership and goes on skiing trips to Vermont on the weekends, or find your niche as an international relations and Arabic double major who plays rugby and writes for the Tufts Daily. You might befriend a computer science major who minors in cognitive and brain sciences and works at the Rez (a student-run coffee shop). Everybody has their own vibe.
What will yours be?
