Welcome First-Year and Transfer Students! Orientation 2017 is around the corner and the Undergraduate Orientation Office is excited to welcome you and your families to Tufts in the fall.  Everyone at Tufts is here to help you and your family understand the expectations and opportunities you will encounter as a member of the Tufts community.  Our goal is to introduce you to your peers, upperclass students, faculty, staff and the many Tufts’ services as you begin your college journey.  The information you will find on this site will be updated throughout the summer, so keep checking back for new information on Orientation 2017.  As always, do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.

Voices of the Hill

Voices of the Hill

Thanks to everyone who participated in Voices of the Hill, "The Gap" last semester. This program, organized and facilitated by Kofi Asante ('17) brought together Tufts students from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives to perform a series of monologues about their personal experiences. We're looking forward to the next Voices of the Hill event sometime soon! Stay tuned for more information!

Watch "Day By Day"

Student Accessibility Services and Tufts' Department of Film and Media Studies recently partnered with two student filmmakers, Ben Hoskings and Ray Bernoff, to produce "Day By Day," a short documentary about six Tufts students' experiences as artists living with disabilities. "Day By Day" premiered with great success in mid April, and the film will be shown at two national conferences later this summer. Congratulations to Ben and Ray, who have also entered "Day By Day" in a national contest for filmmakers with disabilities.
