Tufts Quidditch Fundraises for Nationals

Tufts Quidditch is fundraising in order to get to nationals. This year their traveling team placed fourth in the Northeast regionals in order to secure a point in the national championship. Tufts Quidditch took second place at the 2010 Quidditch World Cup and after a few difficult years are making a comeback!

They made a fundraising page on the site gofundme.com and have raised about half of their goal so far. In addition, they have been selling shirts in the campus center as another way to raise funds. The shirts, as you can see below, highlight the differences and similarities between  Hogwarts and Tufts.

Good luck to the Tufts Qudditch team in raising enough  funds to attend the national championship in Orlando, Florida! Bring back a trophy!

ROTC at Tufts

ROTC students are just like everyone else – except for that in addition to normal classwork and activities, they participate in physical training programs and take ROTC classes at MIT.

The first ROTC program at Tufts started in 1941 and about 100 individuals were enrolled. In 1969, as the Vietnam protests sprung up all over campus, faculty voted to ban the ROTC program at Tufts. It was not until 2011 that the ban was lifted and students could have ROTC recognized on their transcripts.

During the last academic year, about 20 Tufts students were participating in the ROTC program. Below is a video of just one ROTC student, Jonathan Bowie. Watch the video below to learn more about what he does in the ROTC program.
