What Our Scholars Say

"Deciding to go to Tufts meant I was headed in the right direction, starting the BLAST program helped me take my first steps, and completing the program motivated me to finish the race. Before I started the BLAST program they told me I would build a strong "cohort" of friends, but I didn't...I found my family."
