Tufts University draws students from all over the world. Our student body typically represents every US state and over 80 countries! And while we absolutely love welcoming prospective students and their families to campus for information sessions and tours, we realize that not everyone has the chance to visit us in person. So on this page, we have created a virtual experience to showcase this incredible community so you can get to know Tufts from the comfort of your home.
Where to start? Here's the high level overview.
Tufts is a medium-sized research and liberal arts university of 5,600 undergraduate students, located in the greater Boston area. We encourage close student-faculty relationships, foster a culture of research and innovation, and celebrate the diverse experiences of our students, who are known for being intellectually playful, down-to-earth, driven, and civic-minded. Our students enroll in one of three schools: the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Engineering, or the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA). Tufts proudly meets 100% of the demonstrated financial need of all admitted students. To dig deeper, we recommend reading this page.

You can find the statistics of Tufts all over our website, but we think the best way to get to know Tufts is through the experiences of Tufts community members. So we recommend you check out our JUMBO Magazines where we feature real people and the cool work they're doing.
Thanks for visiting us virtually!
