Tufts Orientation Helping Class of 2016 Get Ready

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!

Why We Love Tufts

At the end of March, Tufts Admissions sent out their ultimate decisions to the applicants for the class of 2016, accepting approximately 21% of applicants – its most selective  year yet. That translates to nearly 3500 students – all of whom have probably received numerous offers and are weighing this life changing decision. Therefore, in an effort to communicate to these newly accepted students why Tufts is the place to be, the admissions office has created a series of videos featuring real Jumbos discussing the reasons why they chose and love attending Tufts.

What kind of reasons did they come up with? Everything from little reasons like Hodgdon burritos and the Rez coffee shop to larger reasons like a diverse student body and tight knit community. You can check out one of the recent videos below, as well as watch the rest of them on the Tufts Admissions YouTube channel. One thing we can say for sure – you don’t have to be a potential 2016er to enjoy them! Sometimes, it’s just nice to hear a few reminders for why you chose Tufts back in the day.
