Throwback Thursdays

Recent photos on The Fletcher School’s Admissions Facebook Page interestingly compare the Fletcher of years ago to the Fletcher we see today.

With historic photos from the archives paired next to more recent photos taken today, these fun ‘Throwback Thursday” posts show that although Fletcher may look different over the years, the students still have the same passion and excitement for learning.

Check out this one “Throwback Thursday” post below, and for more photos check out their Facebook page.

While packing up, recycle and reuse

This year Tufts Recycles! encouraged students to think about recycling and reusing while they were packing up their dorm rooms for the summer. The R²ePACK move-out initiative asks students to Reuse & Recycle everything, pack and clean. This year they collected:

  • 8500 pounds of clothes and linens, to be donated and recycled
  • 1 truckload of freecyclable items, to be donated to incoming freshmen in the fall
  • 20 pairs of crutches, to be reused by the Tufts Athletics Department
  • 15 boxes of nonperishable food, donated to Project Soup in Somerville
  • 6 boxes of Dining Hall dishes, returned to Dewick-MacPhie and Carmichael Dining Halls
  • 5 boxes of school supplies, to be donated to the Medford Public Schools
  • 3 boxes of books, to be donated to the Boston Prison Book Drive
  • 2 cubic yards of broken and working electronics, to be recycled
  • 1 mountain of mattress foam, to be recycled

To document R²ePACK 2012, the team took photos during the collection. Click on the photos to see more on the Tufts Recycles! blog:
