A Drink Fit for the President

When it opened its doors in the summer of 2010, the RezQuad Café, located in Miller Hall, joined the list of campus spots where Jumbos can get their caffeine fix, study or socialize.

Featuring custom-made, uniquely named drinks like the “Nutty Professor” (latte with toffee nut and caramel) or “Lucy in the Chai” (chai latte with espresso), the RezQuad Café is run by Tufts Student Resources and completely managed and staffed by Tufts students.

Watch as barista Jake Savage, A12, demonstrates the construction of a RezQuad favorite – the Larry Bacow, a peppermint hot chocolate drink created by President Bacow.

Puppy Love

Stressed out by midterms? The staff at Miller Hall provided a unique opportunity for students to forget about exams this semester.

On Oct. 14, Michael Bliss, Miller Hall’s resident director, and resident assistant Nimish Shah (A’12), in conjunction with the Scituate, Mass. based non-profit, Dog B.O.N.E.S. (Building Opportunities for Nurturing and Emotional Support) brought therapy puppies for students to pet and play with in hopes of relieving some of their midterm blues. The event left some students nostalgic for their own dogs at home, while others puppy-lovers were simply grateful for the distraction.

A Fresh Start

Recently moved off campus? Looking to start cooking for yourself? This semester, Tufts Dining Services sought to make food shopping a little easier and greener for students with the introduction of their first weekly farmers’ market.

After a successful single-day market in October 2009, Dining Services partnered with the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project, a program run by the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts, and United Teen Equality Center (UTEC) of Lowell, which seeks to motivate the disadvantaged youth in Lowell toward social and economic success, to provide fresh produce for students on a weekly basis.

As it enters its last week of the season, we took a peek at all the market has to offer. The last farmers’ market of the season will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 27, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Lower Patio of the Campus Center.

Facing Reality

Have you picked up your cap and gown? For many seniors, it is this moment when the reality of it all begins to sink in.

We stopped Meredith Hassett (A’10) as she made her purchase, to find out what was going through her mind during her final weeks at Tufts. Wishing the best of luck to all members of the class of 2010!

The Power Of Song

Each year, over 200 students register for David Coleman’s Gospel Choir course, packing into Distler Performance Hall each Friday afternoon and bringing the age-old African American tradition of religious music to life. The for-credit class ends each semester with a concert that is known for motivating guests to their feet, often clapping to the music and even dancing in the aisles.

See what senior Leigh Cooper (A’10) has to say about being a member of Third Day Gospel Choir, with footage of this semester’s class practicing for their spring concert, which will be held this Friday, Apr. 23, 8 p.m. in Cohen Auditorium. And be sure to check out for a more in-depth feature on the Gospel Choir and a few of its members at the beginning of May!
