Pub-tastic?

While the proposed pub in Hotung Caf?© is not a done deal yet, the idea is gathering momentum and enthusiasm. As Tufts students, we are excited to see there is energy and commitment on all sides to improving campus life.

Could this be you?

Meet Nathan Elrod: He's 20. How about Clifford Collinsworth? He's 20. We also present to you Nathaniel Aguirre: He's 21. You're probably jealous of him; he can go out to bars now. Or, rather, he could.

Don't blame Bacow

Over the last 10 years, to hear the students tell it, there has been a steady decline in the viability of the Greek system at this university.

Europe moves into the immigration lane

In less than 100 years, the flow of people coming in and out of Europe has been reversed. After years of being a net exporter, Europe has turned into the world's most diverse recipient of people. Today, Europeans collectively enjoy an unprecedented state of welfare, opportunity, and stability. These advantageous conditions have inevitably drawn many newcomers to countries such as Spain, France, Italy, England, and Germany. The boosters of immigration proclaim that non-European immigrants are making a significant contribution to the greatness of Europe. However, last year's London bombings and recent riots in Paris suggest that Europe is facing a crisis of integration, particularly Muslim integration.
