Lunch with dean rosenblattBy Marie Condon M'06
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, having lunch with the dean. When I arrived at his 8th floor office, the receptionist kindly asked me to have a seat with the other two students, both second years. Decorated with books and scientific journals, his office was organized, orderly, and exquisitely neat. Although we waited only a few minutes, I developed a feeling of intimidation – much like a grammar school kid being sent to the principal’s office.

Unfortunately, the only secrets I learned are the bad ones. That is to say, in seven months I already discovered all the pet peeves (all five) this school has to offer.
Books AND BAGELS: REVIEWBy Bobby Osterhoff M'07
The long awaited library renovations have ushered in a welcome change on the fourth floor of the Sackler Building. The grand opening of the Books and Bagels Café in late February marked the beginning of a new era of restful procrastination and study inefficiency at Tufts. I have had numerous chances to visit the café over the last few weeks. I have sampled its fare, poured its coffee, and chatted with fellow classmates about their impressions of the new addition. While my thoughts reflect only personal opinions and general impressions, I’ll try to offer some insights into the café’s humble beginnings and its future as a Tufts mainstay.
