The freshman have arrived at Tufts to begin their orientation, and for the first time in several months, the campus is swarming with people. While the new Jumbos wander around The Hill with their parents and siblings in tow, carrying boxes up flights of stairs in dorms, attending their Matriculation and pre-ceremony picnic luncheon on the President's hill, or attending any number of the activities planned by the Orientation squad, upperclassmen, sporting Tufts t-shirts in every color work to welcome the Class of 2013 and make their arrival as smooth and pain-free as possible.
To all the freshman - welcome.
