School Story

I loved watching the campus through the seaons! I loved bringing friends and family to enjoy Tufts... my little cousin to stay in a dorm and decorate a parade float, my grandfather coming every Friday night to McPhee elegant dining....

One recent Tufts story comes to mind. I remember Tufts being a welcoming and open place.. well... I usually take my blind ballet pianist out for Thanksgiving dinner with her husband.. well a few years ago she wanted to “see” Tufts ... so we parked outside the former Cohen auditorium... and I was going to walk her out around the back arts terrace near Alumnae Hall where I was married.. and being diabetic she had to go to the bathroom... so we went inside and were headed the bathroom when we were surrounded by security guards demanding to know what we were doing... they didn’t even believe me when I produced my license,my old Tufts ids and my HNRC Lab security I’d....it was a shock ...they didn’t believe that I was an alum! My friend never forgot the incident... she was hurt and embarrassed... / I was afraid to take her back to Tufts... so I took her to one of the other universities.. I was degreed at and affiliated with..and boy were they really welcoming.... I didn’t even have to produce an ID etc....her remark, what is it with this Tufts anyway???
