Get the Most out of Spring Fling 2018

To get the most out of your Spring Fling Weekend, we encourage you to stay hydrated, rest, eat well, and most importantly ask for help when you need it. Specifically, TUSC urges concertgoers to remember that a crowd does not equal consent, and just because the performers use certain language doesn’t mean you should!

Green Dot

Green Dot is a pro-active and reactive Bystander Intervention program that focuses on changing our campus culture and building skills for a safer community. This year, TUSC Concert volunteers and a number of other event staff will go through Green Dot training prior to Spring Fling Weekend.

Obtain a Student ID card with your Preferred (Common) Name

You now have the ability to obtain a Student ID card with your preferred (common) name! 

  1. Update your preferred name in SIS by clicking the pencil icon next to your name in the About Me tab. (Please note: preferred names can only be printed on Student ID cards if they contain alpha characters only.) Updating your preferred name in SIS will also update your name on class and grade rosters.
  2. If you are replacing an old Student ID card, contact Public Safety about your request for an updated Student ID card. (Incoming students requesting their first Tufts ID card do not need to contact Public Safety, but will have their preferred name appear on their ID card automatically.) 

There are a limited number of replacement IDs available at no charge for current students, and incoming students will never be charged for this service! Learn more about updating your name on your Student ID card.

As a reminder, you can also have your name updated for general communications at Tufts. (Your diploma records will remain as your legal name and, as of now, your Tufts User Name will not change).
