Take Care: what to do as the semester ends

NBA goes back to basketball's roots

As ESPN NBA commentator Mark Jones best put it, the NBA HORSE Challenge was the NBA’s well-intentioned attempt to continue “keeping score” during the sports hiatus caused by the coronavirus.

Editorial: Tufts must continue trend of empathy for students in face of new academic challenges

Since the university’s March 10decision to suspend in-person classes for the remainder of the semester, our community dispersed across the globe to commence online learning.
