2020 Orientation Coordinators

Hana TzouHana Tzou

2023

Hana Tzou is a rising sophomore from San Jose, California double majoring in English and Film and Media Studies and potentially minoring in Dance. On campus, she is a member of the Sarabande Dance Ensemble, the Taiwanese Association of Students at Tufts (TAST), the Tufts Tour Guides, and the Tufts Admissions Blogging Team. When she’s not giving tours or dancing in Jackson Gym, you can find her organizing her room, gushing over New England fall foliage, or hanging out at the bookstore in Porter Square pretending she needs more books. She is so excited to get to know the Class of 2024 this summer and can't wait to meet everyone at orientation in August! 

Siobhan ShamlianSiobhan Shamlian

2020

Originally from the scenic Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, Siobhan Shamlian is a newly-graduated Jumbo who double-majored in Quantitative Economics and Sociology. During her time at Tufts, she served as co-executive coordinator of TUSC, worked in the Office for Campus Life, and volunteered and interned for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts. After one last summer in the place she's learned to call home, she plans to serve in the Peace Corps in Guatemala. She is so grateful for the transformative four years Tufts has provided, and she can't wait to welcome a new herd of Jumbos to campus and round off her time on campus at Orientation, right back where she started!
