While both Tufts University and Tufts Alumni have started using Instagram to document life at Tufts, it’s always nice when students, staff, and visitors share their experiences of campus through social media. 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!
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:
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.

With the start of the new year often comes reflection on the year past. Senior Ian MacLellan takes a photographic approach to his year-in-review with some great shots including this one of his fellow Jumbos “mattress boarding.”

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.

Yee Hui Tan, ’14, has recently added to the collection of Tufts photos, along with a novel idea…
i’m only half-kidding but i’ve been thinking of setting up a group for people to watch the sunset together – friends, strangers, whatever. there would be no awkward forced mingling or small talk, because witnessing a sight like that, in the presence of such glorious, such marvelous light, you really don’t need to say anything.
