Now that I’m home, I’ve been reflecting on my first year at Tufts. Although cut short, it was still the best school year of my life. I grew more as a person, student, and dancer this year than I ever have previously. During my reminiscing, I realized that there were so many little parts of my life at Tufts that I never predicted. None of the research in the world can prepare you for the actual experience of living on a college campus. So I’ve compiled a list here of all the sweet, small things about Tufts that I never expected to find and am extremely glad I experienced.
There are so many other extraordinary things about Tufts: Dewick’s cheesy eggs on Sundays, the chandeliers in Eaton Computer Lab, walking out of the Davis Square T station and immediately catching the Joey back to campus, Kindlevan smoothies, the Rez quad with a fresh coat of snow, stopping by Tisch roof on a clear day, the way Idah (the cashier from Hodgdon Food-on-the-Run) always checks you out with a beaming smile. Every student has a different Tufts experience, and every student would come up with a distinct small, sweet thing to mention about their life at Tufts if asked. I hope that my own collection has helped you understand a little bit more about living on campus, even though you won’t be able to visit for the time being.
