Jumbo Noms

Welcome to campus Jumbo Noms! Jumbo Noms is a snack delivery service for those who are bored with the same old vending machine food. The service was started by two seniors who felt frustrated by the lack of late night food options and long delivery times. Their menu has more than 30 items as well as a few special deals, which include pre-arranged snack packs.

You can follow Jumbo Noms on Twitter and friend them on Facebook for more information.

White Coat Ceremony

On September 15, incoming students at the Tufts University School of Medicine participated in the school’s annual White Coat Ceremony. The event, which took place at the Cutler Majestic Theater in Boston, has served as a rite of passage for incoming students since 1997.

Each student received his/her white coat from University President Anthony Monaco and the group recited the Hippocratic Oath, swearing to practice medicine responsibly and ethically, in unison. The Tufts Alumni – School of Medicine posted these photos and more to an album on their Facebook Page. Check them out!

Hoping for a BridgeAbroad to Chile

Searching for a job after graduation, even just for the summer can be stressful.  Searching for a job abroad? That’s even more challenging.

Emily German (A12) is up to the challenge. Emily is vying for a competitive scholarship to help her get the training she needs to teach English in Chile! The scholarship competition is judged on a written submission as well as “Likes” on Facebook.

Let’s face it, though: searching for jobs abroad is a daunting task, and teaching certification courses carry pretty hefty price tags for a recent college graduate. I am determined to follow through on my dream to live and work in Latin America, however, and winning this scholarship would give me the opportunity to obtain top-quality TEFL certification and acquire the skills I need to become a professional English teacher.”

“I believe that education breaks down all barriers: it sparks inquisitiveness and fosters understanding about other people and cultures, which in turn engenders greater communication and cooperation, from the local to the international community.

So far, Emily’s submission has 269 likes. Help a Jumbo follow her dreams – vote for Emily and share on Facebook and Twitter! Voting ends on 4/15/12.
