Getting Started

The six days of Undergraduate Orientation marks the beginning of an important journey for you and your family. At the heart of your Tufts education is an opportunity to grow as an individual and member of a larger campus community. During orientation you’ll have the chance to start making valuable connections with peers, professors, administrators and upperclass students. Some of the bonds that begin here are sure to last throughout your time at Tufts and even long after. Welcome to the Hill!
