Food at Tufts?


<p>I was just wondering if anyone could enlighten me on how good food choices are at tufts. Im a vegetarian - will my life be any harder?</p>

<p>Or my lunch, at the very least.</p>

<p>My friend who's a pseudovegan but still vegetarian really likes the food here. She says it's better than the other places she sampled (UCBerkeley BLEH! It has become a tradition for bad food!, USC, UCLA, and Middlebury).</p>

<p>Hahahha! You're Indian and a vegetarian! Madu or Jain or Gujju!?!

<p>They also have a full blown vegetarian area w/pasta and vegetarian goodies (vegan chicken nuggets last night!). If you go to <a href=""&gt;;/a>, and scroll down a little, on the far right of the screen it lists the two dining halls (dewick and carmichael), and when you click on them it gives the menus so you can check it out for yourself. Again, the food is not bad at all and I think there's definitely a wide assortment for everyone.</p>

<p>I'm a vegetarian and had no trouble throughout my four years at Tufts. THey are really, really good about having vegetarian SELECTION, not just vegetarian food. Dewick has better options than Carmichael. Hodgdon has all sorts of good stuff for vegetarians (do they still have the Chinese there?). You'll be fine - unless you are so absurdly picky that nothing will please you.</p>

<p>The food at Tufts is AMAZING. I think they're ranked second on the list of colleges with the best food. When I visited I happened to only eat vegetables and I'd say it's probably very easy to be vegetarian on campus.</p>

<p>Ok, so atleast I know I wont starve there.</p>

<p>Don, Im South Indian - not a Madrasi though.</p>

<p>Hi p-dinc:</p>

<p>No, you won't starve. In response to the EE question (I would rather post something once here than answer it a million times via PM) - unfortunately, can't tell you too much about EE in particular, just engin. in general. It's a very good programme; you'll actually get to know your professors, have a lot of contact and research opportunities. You'll start off freshman year by taking two physics courses, two engineering courses (one is basic programming, and the other is AutoCAD), two elective engin. courses (really basic stuff- just gets you exposed to different types of engin. I took mine in sound - mechE - and intro to chemE), two math courses (which depend on where you place into), a chem course, an intro writing, and maybe an elective if you can squeeze it in. You'll really get into engineering your first year, which is good - most schools are all math/science the first two years. </p>

<p>Requirements (rough approx - I only know chemE):
*calc I, II, and III (which is AB, BC, and multi-variable - you can AP out of I with a 3, 4, or 5, but you need a 5 to AP out of calc II)
*EEs take some more math - linear algebra? discrete math?<br>
*two physics - but you can AP out (chem-es take one physics) - intro
*some more physics - not sure exactly what
*One chem (you can AP out with a 5 - chemEs take a ton more chem)
*two intro engins - which are 1/2 credit
*two intro programming (EN 1 and EN2) - which are 1/2 credit
*expository writing
*5 liberal arts - at least one humanities, at least one social science (you'll get explanations of each - humanities is English, literature, etc; social science is psych, history, etc). At least one needs a college-level pre-req. In theory, you are supposed to form a "thematic cluster" with your liberal arts courses - but honestly, you can take whatever you want and make it a cluster. They don't care.
*10-12 EE courses
*ES 3 - which is electrical engin. that everyone takes
*I think you have to take ES 4 or 5 - statics? Something like that</p>

<p>As I said, you'll get to do engineering from your first year. It's good - the 1/2 credit courses are easy, and you get some exposure. You'll have to declare a major by March, but you can switch (it's easy to switch EE and compE, and civil/environmental - but switching chemE to another would be hard). Sometime in June, you'll get a little catalogue of engin. courses - the 1/2 credit intro ones. You'll pick some and rank them in order. The prof. for that course will be your advisor, and the other students are in the advising group. You can switch advisors after the first semester (if you want one in your major or in your specialty). </p>

<p>If you have any other questions, let me know.</p>
