A very wealthy and stuffy student body

Jan 07 2012Economics
A very wealthy and stuffy student body. A good majority of their parents went to Tufts when Tufts was considered a working class school. It has changed to a "Harvard wannabe" but it will never be a Harvard or an MIT. I expected more diversity. The city of Somerville is awesome. I'm seriously thinking of transferring.

Feb 07 2011Biology
I believe coming to this school was the worst decision of my life. I have gone from High School hero to a zero. The campus is filled with nerds and ugly girls. Its cold and you are isolated to a minute campus with about only 5000 students. It is not called Toughs for nothing. My life back in my home town was great; since coming here I despise my very existence. Do not come here.

If you are a woman or a non-rich

If you are a woman or a non-rich white person, beware! The campus is not a safe place for people who are hurt by other students - whether it is rape, domestic violence, intimidation, threats, etc.

There is a terrible lack of diversity and self segregation. most students come from very comfortable backgrounds.

The teachers and administration is out of touch with the plight of the average, non-rich student. They will heartlessly ignore your struggles while they bend over backwards to accommodate the rich students who is struggling with their grades.Save yourself the trouble. Boston is terrible and it's that close to visit anyway. the campus is ugly and the facilities aren't that nice at all; most of the dorms are a joke. yourself the money and mental anguish of going to such a sham of a school. All the good professors leave to go teach at Harvard or MIT for a reason...Tufts is sh(t and getting sh*ttier by the year.
