In less than two months the class of 2016 will arrive on campus and Tufts is well on its way in planning their official welcome. The Undergraduate Orientation Office understands that starting college can be a stressful time, so orientation coordinators have made an effort to reach out to 2016ers online. Their Twitter account offers these Jumbos information on everything from housing to advising, while also providing reminders for upcoming deadlines and helping connect the future classmates.
The office’s Communications and Logistics Coordinator Audrey Abrell, A13, commented:
We hope to continue getting [the Class of 2016] excited about arriving to Tufts and keeping them informed about orientation. The students seem to appreciate that there are staff members online to answer their questions, and we hope that it encourages them to be proactive in preparing for Tufts.
The Facebook page is checked daily, Monday through Friday, so members of the Class of 2016 can ask questions online and get a quick response straight from the Orientation office. Bet these new Jumbos can’t wait for the fall!
