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:

No, we’re not talking about Ferngully! A group of creative Tufts students researched, wrote, designed and produced a news-style video about bat decline caused by white nose syndrome (WNS). The video features a surprisingly accurate and entertaining rap about the bats brought to you by Nabil Hoq, Terence Tran, Khadijah Hall, and Andrew Ineson, all A12:
Anchord, Tufts’s co-ed Christian a cappella group, addressed the inadequacies of Christian dating in their Spring Show’s skit. Their answer to dating problems was a Christian social media platform aptly named “Faithbook.” In the following video, Ana Carvalho, A13, and Mark Rafferty, A13, act dating interactions via “Faithbook.”
Ever wanted to learn how to dance the spicy Latin salsa? Now you can learn from the best: Tufts’s own La Salsa has begun an instructional video mini-series for all Jumbos to learn the secrets behind their moves. In their first installment, La Salsa co-leaders Suzanne Lis, A13, and Sam Newland, A13, show us the basic step, side step, right turn, Susie Q, and a turn for guys:
You can also learn these moves and more from the members of La Salsa every Tuesday from 9PM to 10PM in Jackson Gym. Already a master salsa dancer? Then be sure to audition for the performance team on Tuesday, October 4th at Jackson Gym from 10PM to 11PM. Buena suerte!
One of the most memorable orientation experiences for incoming first year Jumbos is the first a cappella show of the year: The O-Show, a free performance where Tufts’ favorite a cappella groups welcome the newcomers to our community. One of these favorites is Essence, an all-female a cappella gr0up focused on music of the African Diaspora and African-American Tradition.
Enjoy their O-Show performance of “Good Girl” by Chrisette Michele, featuring soloist Erica Satin-Hernandez, A13:
If the Tufts Quidditch Team can play on the Residential Quad, why can’t sci-fi geeks join in on the fun too? Two Tufts students, one with a Luke Skywalker-style blade and one with a Darth Maul-style blade, took to the quad with their replica Star Wars FX Light Sabers to do battle in the darkness behind the Olin Center.
This past weekend, Jumbos invited their parents back to the Hill for a look at things they might have missed in previous visits. Tours, lectures, and performances showcased all the great things students are involved with everyday. Check out videos from some of the performances that highlighted the weekend.
