During our discussions, [our CA] provided us with thought-provoking questions and ensured that we heard from a number of perspectives. More importantly, though, [he] challenged our assertions and ideas and pushed us to think about the implications of what we were claiming."
I signed up for Tufts IR Pre-College hoping to expand my understanding of global issues. And while I have done this, in many ways, these two weeks helped me see how little I know and how much there still is to discover not only in terms of academically studying the world, but also personally learning from it."
As a Tufts alum, it was wonderful to have [my student] experience life at Tufts! He commented that the lectures were informative and interesting, the language classes were engaging, and the staff were very helpful overall."
I am very pleased that my son really enjoyed the topics discussed, and learning a new language was an exciting challenge. He formed new friendships with his classmates and found the staff helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. A great experience, all around!"
The teachers were great. Very supportive and gave a lot of technical information that she found helpful."
Nice combination of coursework, explorations, meeting other students, and getting to know Tufts."
I have a better understanding of how to join concept and execution in my work. I have also realized that I have a lot more freedom when it comes to art making than I originally thought."
I have definitely explored how to better incorporate conceptual ideas into my work, and how ideas guide our art just as much as the subject matter. I have learned how to take a loose prompt and create work that displays my views and ideas."
In this program, I have been introduced to new ways to think about art. The projects have challenged me and already have prompted me to come up with several more projects that I can't wait to get started on."
I only ever thought about art in a technical way, and that has completely changed. I am much more interested and engaged in my art conceptually. Before taking part in this program, I had only ever used traditional mediums like charcoal, oil, gouache, etc. I am now very eager to get my hands on as many mediums as I can. I want to do more with animation and sculpture, as well as try different styles of painting."
