Congratulations! You've been accepted to Tufts. Now what?
I have never been good at looking through college websites. When I was in high school and I tried to do research on a college by looking through their website, I got lost and confused easily. What I didn’t know then is that college websites contain a wealth of information, and most of it isn’t hidden behind “members only” logins. There is so much information hidden away under pull down menus and a trail of links. Because of this complexity, I decided to assemble this list of useful websites that you can use to learn more about Tufts.
Ever wondered where you can find concise information about AP/IB/A-Level credit without attending an on campus information session? Look on page 18 for the School of Arts and Sciences and page 31 for the School of Engineering in the Tufts Bulletin.
After looking at the bulletin, do you have absolutely no idea what BIO 13 or MATH 32 are? You should check out our Course Catalog. You can look through the course catalog to see course descriptions and professors.
Now do you want to know which classes you want to take for a certain major? A quick Google search for “Tufts (insert major name here) Degree Sheet” should lead you to a website that gives course requirements and a standard timeline for completing a degree. The bulletin also has information about majors; however, some of it might be out of date.
Do you want to know what food is being served in the dining halls? Here is a link to our daily menus, complete with nutritional content and ingredient lists.
Did you know that you can look at dorm floor plans on our ResLife website?
Summer’s coming soon, and are your parents encouraging you to use the time to visit colleges? If you’re going to be in the area, you should schedule a visit to Tufts.
Can’t make it to campus for a tour? That’s totally fine. Here’s a link to our fantastic virtual tour.
I could keep bombarding you with links to some great Tufts pages, but hopefully this starter list should answer a lot of your questions about Tufts and get you excited about Tufts if it’s somewhere you want to apply.
