Back in the summer of 2006, I had a crazy idea. What if we followed the lives of a group of Tufts students from start to finish, ending up with a cumulative portrait of the undergraduate experience?
We didn’t quite know what would happen when we launched Four Years, Infinite Possibilities. But last week, as the class of 2010 prepares to ascend the Hill one last time for Commencement, we launched the final installment.
Over the past four years, the students’ lives changed in ways they couldn’t have anticipated. You can read back through the installments of the feature to see how that happened. But Web Communications changed, too. The project itself changed owners. Our platforms shifted. Our technological capabilities and collaborations evolved (and the above video is proof positive of that).
So what does this mean? It means that, for both our department and for these students, the story always goes on. All that changes is how we tell it.
Congratulations to the class of 2010, and best of luck with the rest of your story.
