When I came and visited Tufts two years ago, I felt a sense of community the moment I stepped onto this hilly campus. Fast forward to present day and that feeling has not gone away. The students here are truly the most passionate, intelligent, and kind people I have ever met. As someone who wanted to study biology, on the pre-medical track, I knew that I wanted to be in an environment where I could thrive. Through my first year here, I have found my peers to be both supportive and collaborative, especially in my science classes. There have been countless occasions where I needed help, and I saw that students are willing to put in both the time and effort to ensure that I too would succeed. Why Tufts now is the same as Why Tufts then: the students that make up this community.
