Student Personas

Tamara I am very lucky to be in Tufts UPP which is specially tailored for my need; it culminates my STEM-oriented high school course with rigorous college-level English courses. Spending time with dedicated, friendly teachers here, I have got great confidence for university-level scholarship. However, I think what makes UPP stand out are the unlimited opportunities. We can get access to the library, work on projects with renowned Tufts professors, and even sit in lectures with other Tufts students.
Students aboard the USS Constitution The Program itself is really good, and I have learned a lot from it. I learned how to manage my schedule more efficiently. More importantly, the Summer Session Residential Program teaches me how to balance between work and fun. Work hard and play hard!
Summer English Language program in downtown Boston I truly appreciated what all the staff and instructors’ have done for us during the Teacher Training Program at Tufts University. I enjoyed every aspect of the program and I hope this program will continue to prosper!
