Tufts photographers share their favorite images from the university’s campuses and beyond
Tufts photographers cover the Medford/Somerville, Boston, Fenway, and Grafton campuses all year long, documenting the people and places that define the university.
They photograph students busy with classes, graduating in May, and new ones arriving in fall—and everything in between.
They create images of students and faculty at work and at play. Here are their choices to show the life of Tufts through the entire year.
Enjoy this trip through Tufts in 2022.
