Why College X - Tufts 1

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

Tufts is the perfect choice for me as a scientist, musician, and community member. As a prospective psychology major hoping to concentrate in cognitive and brain science, I can study a variety of sciences because Tufts recognizes neuroscience as an inherently interdisciplinary field. I look forward to discussing neuroscience with similarly interested students. With Tufts’ support for undergraduate research, I hope to conduct research at the Emotion, Brain, & Behavior Laboratory, and to present my research at the annual Tufts Undergraduate Research & Scholarship Symposium. I am also excited to join the Tufts Symphony Orchestra and the Asian American Alliance.
