This week marked the deadline for college seniors around the country to apply for Teach for America, a program in which graduates make a commitment to teach in poor urban or rural schools for two years. With Tufts’ focus on active citizenship, it’s no surprise that graduating Jumbos are top contributors in the program. In order to pass down the torch and inspire fellow Jumbos, current Teach for America members and Tufts alumni recorded a video expressing their love for their work:

The Fletcher School and Tufts’s own LGBT Center have Jumbo love for their interns this fall!

In a series of blog posts, Fletcher School admissions highlights their three interns and welcomes them to the office. One of their Interns, Katie, is a Lebanese Egyptian from Cairo interested in Human Security and NGO & Public Management. She’s extremely excited to be here and said,

Despite being far from Egypt, I felt at home at Fletcher right away. Between the exciting stories my fellow Fletcherians tell, and the numerous courses to choose from, I feel like a kid in a candy shop!

The LGBT Center chose to show their love through a video introducing seven undergraduate and graduate interns as well as two graduate staff assistants and the center director, Tom Bourdon. In the video, the entire staff return the love to their home away from home:

FreethoughtCasts

Tufts Freethought Society recently released a podcast series led by the group’s executive board members. Their first podcast, led by Walker Bristol, A14, and Lauren Rose, A13, covers everything from The Ignoble Prizes to the male hormonal cycle (yes it exists–it’s just a yearly cycle). They seek to discuss contemporary topics based on science, logic, and reason free from superstition, dogma, or belief in the supernatural:

Were you just thinking, “Boy, I wish somebody would develop a podcast that discusses issues related to atheism, religion, skepticism, science, politics, sex, and freethought, perhaps specifically catered to students and Boston area affairs?” If so, then get excited! Tufts Freethought Society has a podcast!

If this sounds like you, check out their blog for their first two podcasts or find them on Youtube for their videos from The Humanist Forum, reflections, and more.  For more on Tufts Freethought Society check them out on Twitter and Facebook.

If the Tufts Quidditch Team can play on the Residential Quad, why can’t sci-fi geeks join in on the fun too?
