Human: Formula

Lately, while procrastinating on convoluted assignments, I ask myself why I chose college over the variety of options I could have gone with after high school, each leading me down a complex and unpredictable path. But then I look at the clock, fret about grades and go back to studying. The real questions that keep […]

‘Decolonizing International Relations’ conference to present marginalized perspectives

They were eating spicy fries when they got the idea. Latifah Azlan and Khadija Mohamud, second-year master’s candidates at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, took advantage of Fletcher’s history of strong student-led conferences and organized their own. This conference, scheduled to take place today, is called “Decolonizing International Relations: Reexamining the Narrative of Theory and […]

El Centro: Dancing through

I sat on a brown, wooden floor sprinkled by sunlight, drawing a cautious half-circle around my folded legs. I was four. I was on the second floor of my preschool building where we had after-school programs, first-year homerooms, and an upstairs dance studio.

The Weekly Chirp: Concrete jungle

It’s always fun to examine the beautiful, crazy, wild, extravagant species of birds from around the world online, but at the end of the day, there’s nothing better than going outside and actually seeing birds yourself — even if they don’t happen to be pretty and decorated like a bird-of-paradise.

Q&A: Assistant Director of Housing Operations Angelic Sosa discusses housing issues

Housing at Tufts is nothing if not complicated. With the creation of CoHo, the introduction of the tiered housing system and the upcoming move of first-years from Houston Hall to Miller Hall, there is a need for more clarity, information and assistance. Tufts hired a new assistant director of housing operations, Angelic Sosa, in the summer of 2018. A reporter from the […]

El Centro: Deeper into Halligan

Last week, I explored the value that Halligan and the computer science community has for me. It’s a space where I find supportive women. The undergraduate teaching assistants (TAs), students with more experience in the computer science department, proved essential to a computer science and international relations double major with whom I spoke. He finds that Halligan […]

The Tide: Ilhan Omar

Minnesota State Representative Ilhan Omar has already made history as a millennial legislator, as a person who came to the U.S. as refugee and the first Somali-American legislator in U.S. history. Omar was first elected in 2016 to serve a central Minneapolis state house district. This November, she, along with Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, will be […]
