Growing up in a one-bedroom flat in a triple-decker with his parents and three sisters in Somerville’s Teele Square, Peter Delli Colli, A69, D73, never could have imagined he would have a lifelong relationship with the university down the street. “When I was in a baby carriage, my mother would take me on walks around the campus,” he joyfully recounts. Later, Peter attended Tufts on a full scholarship with room and board.
