A Game of Tetris

Which aspects of Tufts’ curriculum or undergraduate experience prompt your application? In short: “Why Tufts?” (Required length is 50-100 words.)


As a prospective architecture student, I aspire to pursue both the aesthetic side of the discipline and the scientific nuts and bolts of design. At Tufts, I can live at the intersection of architecture and the humanities by taking courses such as Urban Sociology and Engineering Psychology. When I visited campus, I saw that Tufts students are quirky and inquisitive individuals who similarly inhabit their own junctures of fascinating disciplines. I imagine my experience at Tufts as a grand game of Tetris, with knowledge and experience falling into such incredible alignment, building me into exactly who I want to be.
