"Back to School" beginnings

A new academic year is under way, a perfect time to "start
at the very beginning" and remind you of the many privileges
you have as members of the Tufts University Alumni Association (TUAA).
In the following pages, we inaugurate a new section of Tufts Magazine
that highlights the activities of Tufts graduates and the many programs
that serve them. This fall we are pleased to announce the Tufts
Alumni Travel-Learn program, the Tufts Institute for Lifelong Learning
(TILR), a new partnership with Drake Beam Morin (DBM) to enhance
alumni career services, improved architecture and content on the
Web, and at-a-glance directories to facilitate your involvement
in clubs and other organizations.
TUAA President Bill O'Reilly, A77, and I are excited and optimistic
about re-energizing our entire alumni body—all of whom have a unique
connection to Tufts. In the coming months and years, the Alumni
Council (TUAA's elected governing body) and its committees will
be working closely with the Office of Alumni Relations to develop
new programs, services and opportunities. Together, we will continue
to build a Tufts University that merits its fine reputation and
growing stature among top institutions of higher edu- cation in
