College Tour '10: Tufts University

By Valerie Strauss

MEDFORD, MA
Tufts University
From a parent

We hit Tufts in the afternoon and everybody was really nice. We were pleasantly surprised. Why I was surprised I don't really know.

Kids were throwing frisbees and hanging out. The cross-country team ran by, and got a good sense that there are a lot of things going on.

The girl who gave us the tour was adorable. She talked a lot about the food on campus, about how good it is.

They took us into a common area of one of the dorms, and it had an institutional odor. I told her she would get used to it.

We know the school is a top school academically. I really liked Tufts and so did my daughter. She said she could see herself there, but for her, it may be a little too far from home.

This is one in a series of reports that parents and students are contributing about their campus tours this spring. If you have visited a school and would like to participate, email me a brief report at theanswersheet@washpost.com. You can find out more about College Tour ’10 and how to write about your college visit here.
