Here and There at Tufts

Doane, Lewis

1907

Tufts College Station

 

One would scarcely think that a railroad station could have anything to do with the College, yet a former graduate studying in a foreign university, in answering questions pertaining to Tufts made the statement that Tufts had a station of its own. The pompous German was amazed at the enormous size of an institution that could have a railway station for its own special use.

The station is a handsome structure of granite, and with its concrete walks and carefully kept lawns and flower beds, forms a pleasing introduction to College for the timid Freshmen. Its blue and white sign with the awe-inspiring "Tufts College " has probably caused the heart of more than one prospective Freshman to beat in anticipation of his reception to college life.
