As you prepare to close out this extraordinary year, we would like to acknowledge your tenacity and resilience, your ability to find joy and make the best of these challenging times, and your determination to hold firmly to your goals. Your capacity to adjust to all the changes in your daily life patterns are a testament to what it means to be a Black Jumbo on Tufts’ campus.

We salute you and wish the all the best as you move forward with your internship and summer employment opportunities, continuing your academic course work, or taking the time to rejuvenate and focus on your wellbeing while spending time with family and friends. And We look forward to the opening of the Africana Center in the fall with new and reimagined programming and activities to continue centering, celebrating, and supporting you. 

 We want to remind you of the resources available to you as we head into final exam period. A full listing of on-campus and off-campus resources can be found here:
