Discover a Common Interest

Alumni Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) are domestic and international communities of alumni with a common affinity based on experience, identity and background, affiliation, profession, or interests. SIGs are a tangible way for you to engage in the life of the university and other alumni. 

SIGs are not geographically bound. No matter where you live, in the United States or beyond, we encourage you to get involved with a group that matches your interests.

  • Tufts Muslim Alumni Association

    The Tufts Muslim Alumni Association aims to create an active local, national, and eventually global community of Tufts Muslim alumni engaged in community service, interfaith coalitions, social and religious holiday events, and fundraising for Tufts Muslim life. We mentor current students and recent alumni, serve as a network for alumni to further their academic interests and networks, help keep Muslim alumni meaningfully involved in Tufts after graduation, help Tufts tap into rising generations of young, perspective students to increase the pipeline of talent coming into its programs, and help raise the visibility of the Tufts brand within wider Muslim networks.

  • Tufts Senior Connection (55+)

    Tufts Senior Connection was created specifically for alumni age 55 and over. The group provides a venue for seasoned alumni to socialize with their peers and stay in touch with Tufts. The group aims to establish connections among students, faculty, and alumni at Tufts by providing access to both virtual and on-campus student shows and professor-led discussions, as well as providing social programming. Our programs are open to alumni of all classes.
