This is a GREAT offer, and one that all current Tufts students should sign up for immediately. I’m pulling this verbatim from the American Association of Museums LinkedIn page:
To kick off this academic year, the Association of Academic Museums and Galleries is offering FREE ONE YEAR STUDENT MEMBERSHIPS if you sign-up between now and October 15th.
AAMG acknowledges that students are one of the prime constituencies of all of our institutions as well as our future colleagues and leaders. We value the student voice and student participation.
Last time AAMG offered this special program over 400 students took advantage.
