After This I Believe: The Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women, was named as the Common Reading Book for the class of 2014, many in the Tufts community wanted to spend time reflecting on their own beliefs and to hear more about the beliefs of those around them.
Believing that each person in the Tufts community can offer a perspective of great interest to others, the Common Reading Program Committee has invited members of the Tufts community to reflect on their own personal beliefs and share those beliefs with entering students as well as other members of the Tufts community.
If you would like to submit your own This I Believe essay to share, please do so using the form found here. Essays should be brief- 500 words or less. Helpful guidelines can be found at http://thisibelieve.org/guidelines. All essays submitted will be posted if received prior to August 25.
Special thanks to the members of the Common Reading Program Committee for their hard word in involving the entire Tufts community in selecting a Common Reading Book.
