Spring Fling Weekend
Welcome to Spring Fling Weekend
April 26 – 29, 2019
Since 1980, Tufts Spring Fling Weekend celebrates the conclusion of the academic year, which includes celebratory events such as the annual Spring Fling Concert, outdoor movie, and Tuftonia’s Day. Over the years, many additional events have been added to the weekend, and we are thankful for the many campus partners work tirelessly to make the last weekend of the semester a success. A special thanks to The Office for Campus Life, The Dean of Student Affairs, Health Promotion & Prevention, The Office of Residence Life, Center for Awareness, Resources and Education (CARE), The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life, the Green Dot Campaign, the Tufts University Police Department, Community Relations, and Facilities Services.

Green Dot is a pro-active and reactive Bystander Intervention program that focuses on changing our campus culture and building skills for a safer community. There will be a number of visible resources and individuals resent at throughout the weekend and we encourage anyone in need of assistance to ask for help via the Green Dot ambassadors as well as TUPD and security staff.
We know that many students host gatherings at their off-campus houses during Spring Fling Weekend. To help reduce any disturbance to the community, we ask that you keep the following tips in mind:
- Don’t start your event prior to 10 a.m.
- Keep your music volume to a minimum, especially your bass.
- Keep the party indoors, and keep doors/windows closed to prevent sound from traveling.
- Don’t let your gathering spill into the sidewalk or street. Your will be issued citations for any crowding on city streets or sidewalks.
- Pickup any trash and keep your neighborhood clean.

In order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all, please be sure to follow the Spring Fling Social Policy. If you find your self or others in need of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact TUPD or TEMS at 617-627-6911.
Remember, just because the performers use certain language doesn’t mean you should! Let’s all vow to be appropriate with our language choice to ensure a safe space for our peers.
TUSC urges concert goers to remember that a crowd does not equal consent. Be sure to ask someone if they want to dance!
To ensure you have a safe and healthy spring fling weekend, be sure to eat before and while your drinking, pace yourself to a max of one drink per hour, and alternate alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages. Remember, you don’t need to be drinking to enjoy spring fling!
Tufts University Social Collective (TUSC) is committed to providing equal access to our events and programs. If you require accommodations for an event, please contact John Wescott in the Office for Campus Life at 617-627-3212 or email@example.com.
