Outdoor education programs at Tufts seek to use the outdoors as a tool for undergraduate student community-building, transformation, and growth. As early as 1939, Tufts students planned, organized, and implemented outdoor experiences throughout the northeast – simultaneously recognizing the power of student-constructed spaces and the outdoors as a valuable environment for learning in community. While programs have shifted in form and structure since then, Tufts students today continue the mission to create meaningful experiences in the outdoors. Resources and support for outdoor recreation are primarily found through the Tufts Mountain Club (TMC) student organization and the Tufts Wilderness Orientation (TWO) pre-orientation program.
