Midterm Evaluation

Midterm EvaluationWe asked undergraduate students about some of the highlights of the semester so far.

Medford/Somerville, Mass. [11.09.09] With the holidays in sight, it's hard to believe the fall semester is more than half over. We checked in with some undergraduates to ask them what campus events stand out so far for them.

  • "Homecoming, because I was abroad all of last year and missed it, and my sophomore year I was away and missed it. It was a fun bookend to have it be a freshman and senior event." - Winston Berkman (A'10), international relations, Cleveland Heights, Ohio
  • "Fall Ball. It was my first Fall Ball ever, and I love to dance!" - Arushi Singh (A'13), Franklin, Mass.
  • "Black Solidarity Day. It was a chance to see the black community and friends of the black community come together. ... I think everyone had a good time there, and I think everyone walked away learning something new." - Ashley Calhoun (A'10), art history, Detroit, Mich.
  • "Halloween weekend, just because it was so much fun to see everyone out and about in their costumes.We even had a few trick-or-treaters come and ring our doorbell. Luckily, my roommate's mom sent candy, so we used that to give out to the kids. It was cool to see the families who live around here." -Gabe Prussin (A'11), community health and psychology, Syracuse, N.Y.
  • "This semester, I found a band of tree-sitters, and so we're starting the Tufts Tree-Sitting initiative, and that's been really awesome. We still have to get formal recognition from the TCU Senate, but we have plans to take this pretty big." - Alice Pang (A'13), South Korea.
  • "Parents Weekend, because there were street performances down by the Arts Center, and we had a home game for Tufts field hockey. We had a great crowd turnout from alumni in the area, as well as parents and fans." - Emma Kozumbo (A'10), history and art history, Baltimore, Md.
