Hello Incoming Students!
On behalf of the Pre-Orientation team, I want to say welcome to Tufts! We are so excited to have you as part of our community!
We are writing today to inform you that Pre-Orientation 2020 is being moved to a virtual experience that is free of cost to all students. We believe strongly in the positive impact our Pre-Orientation programs have in the new student experience and because of that, we are committed to offering this opportunity to all of you. After careful consideration, it has been determined that in order to ensure the health and safety of our community and maintain the goals and values of our programs, a virtual experience is the best option.
This decision has been made independent of an announcement from the university regarding plans for the fall because of the necessary time needed to plan and redesign our programs. Each of our eight programs depend on many community partnerships - including various organizations, businesses, and vendors in the Greater Boston Area and throughout New England. At this point in time, there are too many unknowns regarding those partnerships to move forward with in-person Pre-Orientation.
