Baccalaureate Service

A tradition that began in 1864, the Baccalaureate Service is the last time the undergraduate class comes together, alone, as a class. This multifaith celebration honors the heritage of spirituality and values at Tufts through a diversity of religions, philosophies and cultures in the forms of music, readings and blessings. All are welcome.

“…we are stronger and our work goes further when we choose not to isolate and shame each other, but rather celebrate and bring one another in closer.”
