    Many people are shocked to discover that there is more than one university in the Boston area. Not only does Tufts University make its home near the site of the most famous tea party in history, it offers students an educational experience which rivals that of any more-prestigious-than-thou household names.
    Founded in 1852, Tufts University is no longer considered the school of Ivy-league rejects. It is currently ranked 28th amongst National Universities by the U.S. News and World Report, a number which can no doubt be attributed to its wide range of academic strengths. Tufts’ strongest majors include international relations, political science, biology, engineering, and a number of health-related fields.
    What sets Tufts University apart is its reputation for personal attention from the faculty. As is the case in all schools with a relatively high number of students (there are about 10,000 at Tufts), introductory level courses are large. As students advance, however, the average class size drops down to an intimate 25.
    Students also enjoy a remarkable degree of freedom in crafting their own curriculum. Besides being able to design their own majors, Tufts undergraduates can participate in the Experimental College, which offers unconventional courses (some of which are taught by students themselves) for full credit. According to Princeton Review, Tufts also boasts the 8th most popular study abroad program in the country.
    When students are not caught up in academics, they often find time to volunteer. Community service is an integral part of Tuft’s culture, with many of its students taking part in literacy programs, blood drives, hunger projects, tutoring, and more. Tufts is also known for producing students who join the Peace Corps.
    Once upon a time, Tufts University was considered a safety school. Needless to say, those days are long gone. Last year, nearly three-quarters of all applicants ended being denied acceptance. The most important factors in admission are GPA, essays, and the difficulty of courses taken in high school.
    Like most private schools, the tuition at Tuft’s is expensive, with students having to pay $40,342 every year. 38% of Tufts students receive financial aid, which is need-based only.
