I hope that you are all enjoying your winter break! I wanted to bring two lunch presentations to your attention. Every year, representatives from Philips Sonicare and Crest Oral-B present to the TUSDM first year students.
While the presentations are not mandatory, each student who attends the presentations will receive a free electric toothbrush from the respective company (if you attend the Philips presentation, you will receive a Sonicare toothbrush and if you attend the Crest Oral-B presentation, you will receive a Crest toothbrush. If you attend both presentations, you will receive one of each). Staff from the Office of Student Affairs will be present to take attendance, so please be sure to arrive on time and be prepared to stay for the entire presentation. Lunch is NOT provided, so I would recommend bringing your lunch in those days.
Please let Karen Alexander know if you have any questions about these presentations.
Join the Tufts Education Network and Tisch College for an evening with leaders in the field as we discuss the role of high schools and colleges in educating citizens for the future. Following a light reception, Steve Cohen, Senior Lecturer in the Education Department, will moderate a discussion with our distinguished panelists focusing on the role that high schools and colleges currently play, could play, and should play in preparing students for the future. Afterwards, we will open the panel to the audience for additional questions. Tisch College’s own Associate Dean for Research, Peter Levine, will be a panelist!
