I'm sure some of you already know about the old Tufts ACB. Well it hasn't gotten much use lately, so I got one going at another site with a better format. Check it out:

If you aren't familiar with the old ACB, basically it's an anonymous confession board, you can talk about basically any topic you want. It is very popular at wesleyan, JHU, oberlin, and a few other schools. There is a login, but it is optional. The only reason to login is if you want to send/receive private messages, vote for posts, or keep track of your threads.

 Hey Tuftonians (is that what you're really called? haha),

I'm considering transfering into Tufts as a first semester soph in the fall. If anyone wouldn't mind talking on AIM, I'd like to get a sense of Turfts from the student's perspective. Thnx!

X-posted to... well, to just about every Tufts community

Hey Jumbos! I know that this risks seeming a little spam-y, but I also think that it's a great opportunity for people at Tufts, and recent grads, to talk about a school that's pretty amazing.

ByStudents (that's us) is a new, entirely student-written guide to America’s top colleges and we want to hear what you think about Tufts. After all, you're the ones who go here. No one knows your school better than you do.

Do you love it? Hate it? Something you wish you could change?

Go to our website, fill out a survey and tell the world what Tufts is actually like. Your review may get published in the forthcoming series of guidebooks, and many more will be featured on the website. All reviews are encouraged: positive, negative, blah. We want to hear whatever it is you have to say. The more information we get, the better we can represent your school.

Thanks everyone!
Hi all. My name is Marc.

For a final project for my MBA, I'm working with a team of people to try and test out an opportunity related to personal outsourcing. The concept is basically to provide a source of money-making for college students by enabling community members to outsource short-duration tasks (cooking, cleaning, shopping, etc).

In order to test this opportunity, I'm trying to setup an online pilot program in the Tufts/Davis Square area where community members would act as the consumers who are dictating what services they need done, and the Tufts students would act as the service providers. This seems to make the most sense since college students typically have more flexible schedules than local working professionals (a ha! assumption #1) and usually are in need of money (okay, who isn't?). In the end, I guess it doesn't really matter who provides the services, and who requests them. I'd simply like to see if a system that could facilitate transactions for such short-duration tasks would be feasible.

Of course, I hit the streets and tried the basic marketing tasks of passing out postcards in the area, but that proved highly inefficient. So I'm turning my attention back to the online community to see if anyone is interested in participating.

I guess, in a nutshell, if you're interested in participating in a 1- or 2-week study that would require only a few hours of your time, have/need the ability to make sure extra cash during this time, and you'd be willing to help out a local neighbor & student, drop me a line.

So yeah, after hearing about the ED kids for 2011, I looked back on our community about a year ago. I'm cringing at my intro, can you say waaaaaay to enthusiastic? Haha...

I understand, again.

Does anyone find campus tours amusing now? All I can think when I see them is, "Damn, that was me a year ago..." and have this strange desire to stop the group and tell them that Tufts is a cool place. And they should come.

Maybe its just me?

Anyone here going to the Darfur protest with Pangea in NYC tomorrow?

Now that we've had a bit to settle in and classes are in motion, I'm wondering how everyone is liking Tufts and college.

I'll say personally that college life feels a bit more ordinary than I thought it would, but I'm enjoying my classes quite a bit and am willing to qualify myself as "happy." How's everyone else doing?

Okay, so there are five confirmed people who are going to the Decemberists. If you want to be person 6, 7, or 8, let me know by tomorrow.

Another thing, I thought that I would be able to buy all of the tickets with my debit card (yes, I am really stupid), but I don't think I can do that, and I don't have a credit card. Is there anybody going who has a credit card who would be willing to order them? The rest of us will pay the ticket price, convenience charge, and whatever credit card charge back.

I'm really sorry about this. It was irresponsible of me to wait until today to check and see if I could pay, I know. Someone let me know if they are willing to take on this task.
