In supporting the mission of Tufts University, the School of Arts, Sciences, and Engineering, and the Division of Student Affairs, the Office for Campus Life aims to foster a balance for all students between curricular and co-curricular opportunities.  In recognizing that an essential part of a student’s growth takes place outside of the classroom, the Office for Campus Life strives to provide all Tufts students with exceptional programs, services, and opportunities to create well-rounded, independent thinkers who become effective leaders in college and beyond.
