Sample Essay

During my visit to Tufts last spring, I was attracted to the school's global outlook and the mutual engagement and intellectual curiosity that bind the faculty and student body together. This came alive for me when I spoke with one of the faculty, Dr. Gittleman from the German, Russian and Asian Language and Literature department. We had a stimulating discussion concerning the interpretations of religion and its place in society. Such encounters allow me to connect with and learn from people of other ethnicities, cultures and mindsets. This open exchange is what I seek from my undergraduate experience at Tufts.
