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 2008
presidential election and the Haitian and Chilean earthquakes in early 2010.
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!
