Summer 2021 Pre-College Programs at a Glance
What Tufts Pre-College Students had to say...
Courses and professors are great! They are kind, approachable, understanding, and helpful... I have had many new experiences and perspectives about living and my interests.
The program really provided me with a college experience that was totally different from high school. Having more free time and more work really improved my time management. Also I love the atmosphere in college so much that I’m sure this is the right place for me to shine.
I loved the diversity in the people at this program and this program introduced me to people from all over the world.
I love the classes I’ve been taking... I made lots of good friends here that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.
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 program] is the best thing a rising senior or junior could do with his/her summer.
A scintillating academic experience that I'm extremely lucky to have had.
“[Your] student will grow a lot in this program, and will become a more mature student and adult for their future studies.
During our discussions, [our CA] provided us with thought-provoking questions and ensured that we heard from a number of perspectives. More importantly, though, [he] challenged our assertions and ideas and pushed us to think about the implications of what we were claiming.
I signed up for Tufts IR Pre-College hoping to expand my understanding of global issues. And while I have done this, in many ways, these two weeks helped me see how little I know and how much there still is to discover in terms of academically studying the world, but also personally learning from it.
As a Tufts alumni, it was wonderful to have [my student] experience life at Tufts! He commented that the lectures were informative and interesting, the language classes were engaging, and the staff were very helpful overall
I am very pleased that my son really enjoyed the topics discussed and learning a new language was an exciting challenge. He formed new friendships with his classmates and found the staff helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. A great experience, all around!
It's a great way to spend your summer getting to know all the different people with different cultural backgrounds. It's also a good representation of what college life will be like.
