#TuftsDayInTheLife: November 15

There’s a lot happening at Tufts every day. In the past, we’ve only been able to capture small slices of it here and there.

On November 15, we want to capture ALL of it.

We’re encouraging all members of the Tufts community to share glimpses of their day—from the mundane moments to the magical—through the #TuftsDayInTheLife hashtag.

We’re looking for all types of content (videos, photos, audio, text) on all the major social media channels. Selected items will be shared through the Tufts website, social channels, and other platforms. In addition to using the hashtag, please tag @SMFAatTufts and @TuftsUniversity if you are using Instagram stories so we can share your posts.

To truly make this work, we need lots of people involved—students, faculty, staff, and visitors. We hope you’ll join us.
