Tufts University really has it all. They offer top-notch academics and research programs as well as a tremendous list of social, service, and sports activities. Tufts is situated on the Medford/Somerville line. The campus is beautifully maintained, with manicured lawns, age-old oaks and elms, and seasonal gardens. Many of the buildings are brand new, and technologies are quickly adopted into campus facilities. Despite being a suburban school, Tufts offers excellent access to city life--the campus is walking distance to Davis Square, and just a quick subway ride from the hot spots of Cambridge and downtown Boston.
