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 year, so keep checking back for new information on Orientation 2017.  As always, do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
