Undergraduate Student Life

Life at Tufts is shaped not only by classes and the campus you live on, but by the people who live here with you and the programs and resources available to you. #TuftsGivingTuesday is an opportunity to support student life at Tufts.  Some of the areas you can support include…

 

The Office for Campus Life recognizes that an essential part of a student’s growth takes place outside the classroom and aims to foster a balance for all students between curricular and co-curricular opportunities. Your gift helps support the programs, services, and opportunities that the office provides.

 

Tufts Community Union (TCU) refers to all members of the Tufts undergraduate community.  Every undergraduate students pays a Student Activities Fee, which is used to facilitate events and programming on campus by the TCU Senate.  A donation to TCU will build upon the student activities funds and be distributed by the TCU Senate to recognized clubs.

 

Tufts University Social Collective (TUSC) is a student group that promotes community through campus-wide events, activities, and social programming.  Large and small scale events, such as live music, trips or class-specific events are tailored to every student.

 

Mindfulness and Mental Health Promotion. Tufts Counseling and Mental Health Services seeks to engage students with services that address the vital area of mental health on campus. A gift here supports programs such as: speakers, group "de-stressing" programs, and other campus-wide programming.

 

Substance Abuse and Prevention.Tufts is committed to helping students in recovery through both on and off-campus networks of support and resources. The goal is to create a nurturing and supportive environment where students in recovery are empowered to achieve personal, academic, and professional goals.

 

Unpaid Internship Grants. Career Planning seeks to increase internship access for low-income students. Funds directed to this area support stipends for unpaid internships, an important opportunity for students exploring different career fields.

 

Professional Development Fund for Interview Attire. The Career Center Professional Development Fund allows students to apply for funding to offset the costs associated with purchasing professional interview attire.

 

Dean of Student Affairs Emergency Fund. Students can encounter emergencies that require additional, short-term financial support. These funds are used to assist those who may need to travel home for a family emergency, for example.  A gift to this fund is an opportunity to support students in their most difficult moments.
