Jumbo Spring Break (JSB) is a new program that offers the Tufts community a meaningful and exciting way to spend spring break. Participants will make a difference in the greater Boston area by working on a project in one of three themes, experience career opportunities and make connections in industry, government, or non-profits, and have a blast with new friends. JSB is a joint initiative of the Dean of Students Office, TCU Senate, the Career Center, the Tisch College of Civic Life, and the Chaplaincy. JSB brings Tufts students together for a memorable college experience that will live on in your personal Tufts highlight reel, will make you feel good about the contributions that you made, and can be a formative life experience that informs your future career and civic engagement plans.  

Jumbo Spring Break activities will be March 18 to 22, 2024. All activities are either on campus or in the greater Boston area.  Participants will live in their usual on or off campus housing during spring break. There is a $500 program fee that covers the cost of all meals, transportation, and event expenses. Students who receive the highest levels of financial aid from Tufts are eligible for fee waivers.  Program registration is open until February 5. Space is limited and slots are allocated on a first come, first served basis.   

Join us and spend your spring break in a true Jumbo fashion!
