"Tufts’ interdisciplinary mindset really does impact the courses we offer! Having this kind of approach has helped me get the most out of my experiences in each course: I have the flexibility to shape the course to my interests and am encouraged to bring my own ideas to the table. This attitude creates a more enriching dialogue, one that allows us to learn from one another and probe beyond the typical boundaries of a topic."
-Emily Lazorchak '21
"We need a diversity of personalities to make our campus an enjoyable place to live and learn. Therefore, you should never feel pressured to paint students in a particular kind of way. We accept introverts and extroverts, leaders and team members, well-rounded students and specialists. We get a good grasp of these traits through the student’s own writing, but in hearing from their teachers and counselors we are able to confirm or expand our impressions of them, and create a fuller understanding of the student and community member we are evaluating."
-Gracie Marshall '15, Associate Director of Admissions
Opportunities to Visit Tufts
The best way to fully appreciate Tufts is to visit our campus. If you have never been to our campus, or it has been awhile, we would love to have you be our guest for a day. Our hope is that you can take a tour of our campus, enjoy a complimentary lunch in the dining hall, attend a class (if you wish) and meet with an admissions officer to answer any questions that you may have.
for your students
Almost every day of the work week (and on select Saturdays in the Fall and in April) we offer information sessions and tours. In addition, during the school year students can visit select classes and eat lunch at one of our dining halls with a Tufts student. See the Visit section of this website for details.
for group visits
If you would like to bring a group of 25 or more students to campus, please register here. We are unable to accommodate groups on weekends, holidays, and school vacation weeks.
At a Glance
At Tufts, we have a student body made up of more than numbers. Our students have strong grades and test scores, but we look for more than that when making a class. We admit students who are well rounded in all areas of their lives – academic, social, and extracurricular.
98% of the Class of 2019 were employed, enrolled in grad school, or participating in service or a fellowship within six months of graduation. Click this link to see about more where our most recent class ended up!
