  • It works in real time. Find out what’s happening right now on campus, and connect with others instantaneously.
  • It’s free. There’s no fee to join or use Raftr.
  • It’s fun. Raftr will connect you with other Tufts students in a new way that’s fast-paced, intuitive, and refreshingly thoughtful.
