Here are a few great Instagram images we came across with the tag #Tufts. Feel free to follow the school’s accounts – TuftsUniversity and TuftsAlumni – and don’t forget to tag your photos so we can check out your time at Tufts!

From a Dream to Reality: The Tufts Education Society

Watch and listen as Ryan Clapp’s dream of an organization at Tufts focused on public education, discussions, educational networking and education advocacy becomes a reality! During his time at Tufts, Ryan worked hard to create the Tufts Education Society to bring together students interested in education, and to maximize the opportunities and resources Tufts already had, while establishing new ones.

See how the Tufts Education Society grew from one student’s idea to an officially recognized student group on campus:

The Daily Cannon

Are you missing the Tufts cannon and don’t know what to do? Perhaps you graduated and moved away, or went abroad for a semester, or just don’t feel like walking up the hill – in any case, your problem is solved. Admissions Counselor Justin Pike has made it his mission to bring the tradition of the cannon to Jumbos everywhere through his photo feed of the cannon.

EPIIC on the Web

The 2011-2012 EPIIC symposium, a four day event that took place from February 22 to 26,  was comprised of lectures and panels discussing various aspects of this year’s subject, “Conflict in the 21st Century,” and was put on by the Tufts Institute of Global Leadership. While tickets to the full symposium could run up to $75 a pop (the price was largely discounted for Tufts students and alums), the IGL made it possible to stay in the know no matter where you were, both during and after the symposium. You can scroll back on their twitter account to check out great EPIIC quotes or see their Flickr albums for photos of the many events and speakers.

50 Back – The Brew of the Brave

Kimberly Rogers, A’86, along with Paige Haley have found a way to creatively combine their love for beer with a patriotic cause. The two entrepreneurs are the creators of 50 Back – The Brew of the Brave. Fifty percent of the proceeds acquired through purchases of this New England lager goes to charities that support the military, such as Homes for our Troops and USO. On their website, they describe the birth of their charitable idea:

50 Back Fine Beer Purveyors was born from the desire of founders Paige Haley, Kimberly Rogers, and others to say “Thank you” to all of the United States’ active troops and veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much to protect our nation and the freedom for which it stands.

You can make a donation to support our troops here. Be sure to follow 50 Back on Twitter and check out some cool photos on their Flickr.
