Over the past four years, six members of the class of 2010 have allowed us to come along for the ride, letting us share in each of their individual Tufts experiences. From deciding on a major to joining various organizations or planning a trip abroad, these six students, each with their own unique identity, have continued to prove the great college ideal-anything is possible.
As they prepare to cross the stage on May 23, they spoke with us one last time, taking a broad look back at the past four years.

Res Life at Tufts is more than just living in the dorms. So much depends on which dorm students live in because each has its own personality, but dorms alone don’t define Tufts. Everyone loves to get involved in extra-curricular activities, and the campus has so much to offer that there is literally something for everyone. It’s not just where you live, but how you live – and through our video, we want to show you how Tufts students live!
With hundreds of student organizations at Tufts, we are only able to show a fraction of what really goes on around campus. Every interest, activity, sport, cultural, and ethnic group (except for maybe the Light Bulb-Changing Club) is represented by some club or organization at Tufts, and the happiness exuded by the student body reflects this.
This video was inspired by the close bond among the members of Houston 3-West Residence Hall. We originally intended to follow just 3Westers on their escapades, but then realized that even a group as amazing and diverse as 3West can’t represent all that Tufts embodies. So we broadened our horizons; as a result we have a newfound appreciation for how difficult it is to mime walking up stairs, do a double pirouette, and to fence. We were looking for interesting activities to film, but all we had to do was open our eyes and see just how truly phenomenal the people around us are.
We hope that our video depicts dorm life, student activities, and the subsequent camaraderie between students at Tufts.
This is the same video Emily and I posted yesterday with a slight sound correction.
