Student Personas

Students outside during matriculation The ACE Fellows act as academic and community role models, assist first-year students in learning about campus resources, and help to create a welcoming community for students’ personal development. These committed undergraduates also create innovative co-curricular opportunities for the Tufts community.
Students talking at matriculation The Judicial Advocacy Program offers Tufts students opportunities to work as advocates supporting their peers in the Student Judicial Process. If you are interested in issues of social justice or policy, or if you think working as an advocate might help as you prepare for graduate or law school, the Judicial Advocates can be a great opportunity to develop skills and meet students with similar interests.
