From Tufts University

Tufts is a medium-sized research and liberal arts university of 5,800 undergraduate students, located in the greater Boston area. We encourage close student-faculty relationships, foster a culture of research and innovation, and celebrate the diverse experiences of our students, who are known for being intellectually playful, down-to-earth, driven, and civic-minded. Our students enroll in one of three schools: the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Engineering, or the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA). Tufts proudly meets 100% of the demonstrated financial need of all admitted students, regardless of citizenship.
