TEDx Talk

Tufts alumnus Dr. Michael G. Luchs, E90, is an assistant professor at the College of William and Mary’s Mason School of Business. He recently gave a TEDx talk that focused on innovating higher education.

Like the TED events that inspired them, TEDx was created to promote “ideas worth spreading.” While TED events are global conferences, TEDx are smaller, local, independent TED-like events. TEDx features speakers, performers, and demonstrators who share their insights on a variety of topics to foster learning, create conversation, and inspire others.

Dr. Michael Luchs earned a BSE in mechanical engineering from Tufts in 1990. He then went on to earn an MS in marketing from the University of Texas at Austin, an MBA from the University of Virginia’s Darden Graduate School of Business, and then his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008.

Check out the video of his TEDx talk below, where he explains how he designed a new course for his business school students that focuses on sustainability.

Why We Need An Easi-Scan Song

A group of Tufts University veterinary students entered the BCF Technology University Contest to win an Easi-Scan ultrasound system. To enter the contest, the students had to send in a group photo, article and video of why they deserve the system for their program. This group of Tufts students from the Student Livestock Organization  were chosen to be one of the final eight schools in the competition.

The Student Livestock Organization is a group dedicated to helping students gain experience working with various types of livestock. Among other activities, this past year they sponsored a poultry-handling lab on campus, a full day of hoof trimming at a local sheep farm, and an AI certification lab. They also organize several practical labs each year and monthly rounds with their ambulatory vets.

Watch their video below and vote for Tufts here.

A Trip on the ‘Bubs Time Machine

If we were to go back 30 years and find ourselves on the Tufts campus, we would definitely see many changes. Hairstyles, clothing, and even architecture would be radically different. Yet one important piece of Tufts would not be much different: The Beelzebubs.

As Tufts’s oldest all-male a cappella group, the ‘Bubs have maintained their incredible vocals, funky style, and commitment to their performance over time. And to prove it, here’s a video of the ‘Bubs performing Michael Jackson’s Thriller in 1983, the same year the song was released. It features soloist Martin Fernandi, A85, and was captured by Alan Drinan, A66, and posted on YouTube by Daniel Lichtenfeld, A84–all ‘Bubs alums. Check it out:

The LGBT Center is available to anyone  interested in learning more about LGBT-related subjects or issues of sexual and gender identity. It seeks to support and celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer identities while maintaining LGBT visibility on campus and providing campus-wide education.
