Tufts University: new “gap year” service initiative!

Tufts University is starting a new program for incoming first-year students where they can spend a year after high school doing a year of service domestically or internationally before starting their freshman year of classes the next year!

Update (2-24-14): Apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks this is pretty exciting! Alan Khazei (co-founder of City Year) has a Huffington post article on this. He also points out the brand new 4+1 year of service program at Tulane in which students spend a 5th year on campus serving in the local community! HT: Nicki
