A New Tradition Of Service

A New Tradition Of ServiceTufts graduates take Alumni Weekend as an opportunity to reaffirm the commitment to active citizenship they cultivated as students.

Medford/Somerville, Mass. [06.05.06] Alumni Weekend is a time for Tufts graduates to return to campus and reflect on the highlights of their college experience. For many that means coming together with their fellow Jumbos to help the community.

This year was no different, as the fourth annual Alumni Service Day focused its efforts on improvements to the boathouse of the Boys and Girls Club of Middlesex County along the Mystic River in Somerville. Dozens of Tufts alumni helped with repairs, gardening and decoration on the site.

Watch this video overview to learn more about this event and the continuing commitment to active citizenship at Tufts that lasts long after the tassel is turned.
