We’re located 15 minutes from Tufts, a school established in 1852 and recognized “as a premier university dedicated to educating new leaders for a changing world.” The academic institution boasts a diverse community of 10,000-plus undergraduate and graduate students who hail from more than 60 countries. The school’s Medford/Somerville campus – home to the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering – can be found five miles northwest of Boston. (Their Fenway campus, home to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts, resides in downtown Boston.) The university’s combination of research and liberal arts is said to attract students, faculty and staff “who thrive in [an] environment of curiosity, creativity and engagement.”
