This past Sunday, Summerfuel at Tufts University welcomed many new students! We have just started our Engineering Design Lab and Program and Application Design programs this week as well as welcoming a new batch of Pre College and College Admissions Experience students. On top of the usual, like giving students the rundown of the Dewick-Macphie Dining Center, new students participated in various activities to keep them engaged.
Their Resident Assistants (RA’s) led them in icebreaker activities, and later they attended the Smoothie Social. It was an excellent event for getting to know the students that they would be living, learning, and hanging out with for the next few weeks.
Monday was a continuation of Sunday’s orientation, with an informational skit and presentation by our staff. Students were also given a tour of the Tufts University campus, so they are comfortable navigating it during their Summerfuel experience.
Finally, students competed in a live game show night, where they played Family Feud, Jeopardy! and other games, for a chance to win some t-shirts.
