Why Tuck?

One of the first things I noticed about Tuck is that everybody knows everyone else. We did a tour after my interview and my tour guide was a second-year. I swear he knew everybody by name, and everyone knew him by name. For me, this was important; I wanted to be part of a community, not just an anonymous person in a large school. I knew it was the right fit for me when, as a first-year student, I felt comfortable asking for help from my classmates and they were all too willing to drop what they were doing and lend a hand.
