Marathon of Majors

Join over 50 departments/programs on Thursday, October 19 in the Academic Quad from 12 - 3 p.m. to explore potential majors. Faculty, staff, and students will be available to answer questions about major requirements and experiences. The first 100 attendees will get a free water bottle!

3 ways to be successful at the Marathon of Majors

  1. Find a faculty member that you connect with. They should be someone who motivates you to learn more about the subjects that interest you most!
  2. Talk to students in your department of interest. Hearing from other students about why they declared their major can be really interesting and informative! Fellow students are often the best resources to learn about a department.
  3. Stay true to yourself. You should choose a major because you’re interested in the subject matter. The more you like the content you’re learning, the more enjoyable the experience will be.

Join Tufts LEADS

Tufts LEADSTufts LEADS is a leadership development program facilitated by the Office for Campus Life, in collaboration with many campus partners, which encourages students to learn, explore, achieve, develop and serve. Through bi-weekly session and an annual day-long leadership conference, the program is ideal for both those who hold a traditional leadership role and for students who simply are looking to further develop their leadership talents.

Grounded in the Social Change Model of Leadership, which was developed in 1996 by a group of professionals at the Higher Education Research Institute of the University of California, Los Angeles, the program seeks to:

  1. Enhance student’s understanding of self and individual leadership skills and talent;
  2. Develop student’s ability to mobilize oneself and others to serve and work collaboratively; and
  3. Facilitate positive social change at the institution and in the community by enabling students to take actions that help the Tufts community to function more effectively and ethically.
