I literally have made really good friends from the town right next to mine and other friends from across the world. I feel like that is such a valuable thing because it helps me develop a more wide look at the world.

Courses and professors are great! They are kind, approachable, understanding, and helpful. I also love the lifestyle here. I love the library as there are many nice areas that motivate me to study. I have got many new experiences and perspectives about living and my interests.

It was the best summer I’ve ever had because of Tufts

It was nothing like I ever experienced. I grew so much

I experienced something new and met great people along the way.

I like the freedom and the fact that this felt a lot like college… Additionally, I was really fond of my classes and my professor. The classes were amazing and it was a new and better learning experience for me.

This is a program really treats you as an admitted college student, and if you want to know what's like to be a college student, how it feels to work with college professors, and what your interested area is specifically about, this is the perfect program you've been looking for. 

A scintillating academic experience that I'm extremely lucky to have had.

The classes were great and teacher receptive, friendly, and provided excellent classes.

I loved everything. I loved the classes and my peers.

I really appreciated the smaller class sizes, the quality of the teaching staff, and the availability of parking!

I very truly enjoyed the class that I took.  The instructor was amazing.  My classmates were gifted.  Taking the course persuaded me to begin working on my application materials to apply to a graduate certificate in UEP

As my first time taking an online college class, I really had a great time taking the course! [My professor] was understanding and super helpful when I had any questions. Also when I would email her she would always get back to me right away which I really loved… my experience was great!
