Tufts pushed me to think about the way I think and the reasons for my perspective, which was incredibly important to my character development. I also made amazing, lifelong friends.
The dorm food wasn't amazing, and some of the dorms themselves and classrooms are pretty dated. Also, it is very difficult to take public health courses if you are not a public health major.
Excellent access and quality of professors and academic material provided at very little to no additional cost in textbook fees.
Dining hours could be better, and the consistency of campus availability during breaks could also be better.
Tufts' biggest and only pro is the people. Everything else is a headache to navigate. The experience is only tolerable with people. Collaborative suffering.
I was in the SMFA 5 years program for a semester and it was horrible. Transportation to and from the Art school is extremely difficult. The art supplies are expensive. Very few Black faculty members and students. And so many more complaints.
I enjoy the academics of Tufts. Although every school as a few tough professors, most of them were excited about their subject and willing to help. Classes aren't insanely hard and there aren't many weird curves. If you put in work, you are able to get good grades. There are also a lot of a clubs to join and a huge variety of them. There is truly something for every interest, which makes it easy to discover more about what you are passionate about.
The engineering school curriculum is extremely outdated and unhelpful in terms of finding a job. Current jobs are now project-based, something that Tufts completely excludes from their curriculum. Classes focus on formulas and memorization that do not translate to real-world success. Majors are not customizable so you have to learn about things you are not interested in at all. Also, the weather is terrible.
