Each October, Tufts welcomes thousands of parents and friends to campus for Parents and Family Weekend, a celebration of life on campus. Parents and other guests are welcome to attend the arts festival and myriad lectures and workshops. A comprehensive schedule of activities is now posted. Registration is now available on-line.

We urge you to make your hotel reservations now as Parents and Family Weekend is the same weekend as Head of the Charles. Several area hotels have room blocks with special rates set aside for parents.


Parents are invited to events hosted by Tufts parents and Tufts Alumni throughout the world. As part of the Tufts family, parents can also come to the many lectures, concerts, and theatre and dance performances on campus.

You may want to see the complete list of what's happening on campus.


Keep up to date with Tufts happenings and with the Parents Giving Program, through our print and e-newsletters and Tufts University publications such as The Tufts Daily.

Students and parents can also share good news with their local papers!

A few times a year, the public relations office at Tufts sends certain kinds of good news announcements to undergraduate students' local newspapers. This could include enrollment at Tufts, graduation from Tufts, and certain honors and awards your child may receive in between.

In accordance with federal privacy regulations, we will include your child in these announcements only if she or he gives us permission by logging into the WebCenter and visiting the "Hometown News Release" function to authorize this service. If your child chooses to opt into this system, the newspaper announcements will potentially include her or his name, home city, state, major, degree earned, and the nature of the good news

If you have any questions, please call the public relations office at (617) 627-4703.
