Programs & Events

The Office of Residential Life and Learning is committed to creating a safe, engaging, and welcoming environment in our residence halls through a variety of programs and events. Our residential life staff build strong communities through programming that spans a wide selection of categories responding to both the developmental needs and interests of their communities.

Residential students at Tufts can count on events ranging from Hall Snacks, a Tufts tradition, to programs capitalizing on current events such as the Haitian and Chilean earthquakes in early 2010 as well as the 2012 Presidential Election. Other past programs have included:

  • Course advising and tutoring nights
  • Hall dances, socials, and BBQs
  • Potlucks, baking and cooking workshops
  • Movie nights and film discussions, "Old School Cartoon Night"
  • Yoga nights and other fitness classes
  • RAD (Rape Agression Defense) self-defense workshops
  • TUPD bike registration and laser engraving
  • Painting the cannon
  • Hall snacks with the President
  • Mental health awareness and stress relief workshops
  • Massage night study breaks
  • "Good Eats" nutrition workshops and smoothie events
  • Guest faculty speakers, e.g. the annual nature walk around campus lead by Professor George Elimore
  • ...and more!
