The Greatest Show on the Hill

Jumbo Jugglers, a student group founded this fall by freshman Kevin Gao, brings together undergraduate and graduate students in the practice, performance and teaching of “balls, clubs, poi, hoops, staff, rope dart, contact, diablo, devil sticks, any skill toy imaginable!” Here, some of the members demonstrate their juggling moves and share tips on getting started.

Stay tuned to Tufts E-News for a feature on graduate students (some of whom belong to Jumbo Jugglers) involved in the circus arts — and in many cases, blending it into their studies.

Across The Airwaves

If you have ever wondered what goes into running a radio station, Andy Sayler (E’11), general manager of Tufts’ freeform radio station WMFO, is happy to show you.

Launched in 1970 at 91.5 FM, WMFO is staffed by a mix of Tufts students and local community volunteers. The station is managed by students with the assistance of a faculty advisor and appointed volunteers.

Recently, Sayler took us on a tour of the station, going through the ins and outs of how music gets from a CD onto the official WMFO playlist.

Since 2003, Tufts has housed its own college chapter of the foundation, leading annual medical relief trips to Quetzaltenango, Guatemala and holding fundraising efforts throughout the year for their partner organization, a Guatemalan school called Pop Wuj.

Last fall we caught up with Jordana Laks (A’12), Tufts Timmy’s director of fundraising, at the groups dodgeball tournament fundraiser:
