Each October, the Parents Giving Program welcomes thousands of parents, family members, and friends to campus for Parents and Family Weekend. In 2023, we welcomed more than 3000 families to campus to experience what life is like for your Jumbo. To view our keynote address and photos from the weekend as well as recorded programming from past years, please visit our, Parents and Family Weekend page.

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 Tufts Now.
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.
