Voices of the Hill

Thanks to everyone who participated in Voices of the Hill, "The Gap" last semester.

We're looking forward to the next Voices of the Hill event sometime soon! Stay tuned for more information!

A: Tufts Summer Session is the answer! With more than 170+ courses—in subjects ranging from Computer Science to Political Science, from Artificial Intelligence to Studio Art, from Organic Chemistry to Nutrition—Tufts Summer Session has just the right offerings for you.
