Experiencing Tufts Today

We weren’t able to welcome you to campus this fall for our traditional Parents and Family Weekend, so in its place we developed an exciting and informative virtual program for Tufts parents and families. We hope you will enjoy this glimpse into life at Tufts this fall!

Tuesday, October 27
7:00 PM ET

Please join us for a special live broadcast of Tufts University's annual marquee event—Tufts Talks!

Tufts Talks showcases esteemed faculty and researchers whose exciting research and discoveries are addressing today's most pressing issues, while propelling Tufts forward as a leading institution of higher education.

We are thrilled to offer this programming online, reaching our alumni, parents, and friends around the world.

No decisions have been made about the status of Senior Week and Commencement at this time. More details will be shared in March 2021.

To view the degree conferral ceremony from May 2020, please visit the Commencement website.

Tufts News and Happenings

Keep up to date with Tufts happenings and with the Parents Giving Program, through our print and e-newsletters and Tufts University publications such as The Tufts Daily.

Share the Good News!

Students and parents can also share good news with their local papers!

A few times a year, the public relations office at Tufts sends certain kinds of good news announcements to undergraduate students' local newspapers. This could include enrollment at Tufts, graduation from Tufts, and certain honors and awards your child may receive in between.

In accordance with federal privacy regulations, we will include your child in these announcements only if she or he gives us permission by logging into the WebCenter and visiting the "Hometown News Release" function to authorize this service. If your child chooses to opt into this system, the newspaper announcements will potentially include her or his name, home city, state, major, degree earned, and the nature of the good news.

If you have any questions, please call the public relations office at (617) 627-4703.
