This is a small branch campus college. If you're considering going into early or middle childhood education, or nursing, this is a great school for you. You will find small classes, helpful professors, and friendly staff. Unlike the bigger campuses, you will feel as if you're important here, and the professors will actually learn your name before the end of the quarter. The tuition is also lower than the main campus because you're not paying room and board. You have to commute here, but there are some apartments very close by. I received a very high quality education here in early childhood education. It's also a safe campus. The student body is well mixed as far as age groups, there are many just out of high school students as well as older students coming back for a career change. A couple drawbacks include the lack of diversity of the student body. You'll find mostly Caucasian, middle class students here. Another drawback is the lack of extra-curricular activities. There are a few clubs and a basketball team, but if you're looking for the college "party atmosphere", you probably won't find it here. Overall it's a very good school.
When P.T. Barnum donated money to Tufts University, he did so on the condition that the school's mascot be named after his beloved elephant. The Tufts University mascot has been the "Jumbos" ever since.
