Tufts Dental Class of 2012

Even with finals and graduation upon them, the Tufts School of Dental Medicine Class of 2012 still managed to spare some time for a little fun. The (now) recent grads put together a music video set to the tune of Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” with  lyrics from the original version replaced by references to graduation and the requirements at the dental school – specifically doing one last “endo,” or root canal. Shot at the dental school, the video includes D12 graduates with a special guest faculty appearance. It’s a fun spoof to wrap up their final moments at Tufts – congratulations Class of 2012!

Check out their video below:

Tufts2012.com

Ammar Khaku, E12, wanted to find a way to visually represent where his classmates would be after graduation. When he couldn’t find a tool that did that well, he decided to build Tufts2012.com. He says, “The concept started off as a simple map with markers, but I added more features before it launched.”

He hopes that the site will be a resource for members of the class of 2012 to find other people in their area, and will create an interesting accumulation of statistics about the class. In the future, he plans to add optional information about what company people are working for or what they’re doing in the area, as well as restricting access to Tufts students and alumni. If the site takes off, he has even more plans including possible LinkedIn integration. He says, “I’m also taking feature requests, so let me know if there’s something you think would be cool!”

As for Ammar, his pin on the map is placed in Redwood City, California, where he’ll be working at Evernote next year.
