TuftsReviews/JumboAccess provides this service on the following conditions listed below. To submit reviews, or to use the information on this website beyond evaluative, advisory or reporting ("fair use") purposes, you must agree to these conditions. By submitting reviews or using this information in said manner, you indicate agreement with these conditions. We reserve the right to change this document at any time.
2. Description of Services
In a nutshell, TuftsReviews is a collection of reviews written by students for students. In doing so, we hope to somewhat de-mystify the 'shopping period' for class registration and give students somewhere to start from when selecting classes. We also provide a form for students to submit their own course reviews. The guidelines for submissions are listed below under 'Submission Guidelines.'
This is in no way a comprehensive guide, nor should it be the only resource a student should use in selecting classes. In fact, we encourage students to seek the advice of counselors, professors, friends, past students, and other resources when selecting classes.
3. Is there an ulterior motive to TuftsReviews ?
TuftsReviews does not exist so that disgruntled students can defame or commit libel on Tufts professors and instructors. The Tufts Union Senate covers basic costs for the maintenance of domain name(s) and other hosting expenses for this website.
4. Submission Guidelines
a. TuftsReviews has been established such that all submissions received will be posted anonymously. Names of submitters are not wanted, nor will they be posted.
b. Any submissions that contain defamatory or libelous language will not be tolerated. This site does not condone such activity and will take the necessary actions to eliminate such language and/or submissions.
c. Submissions may include: student's impressions of the class, topics covered, difficulty, course load, anaylsis of professor's teaching style, and any particularly noteworthy elements that students should be aware of in registering for such class.
d. In the quest for accuracy and consistency, submitters must be or once have been Tufts students, registered for the classes that they review, and must pledge that they are submitting the review honestly and truthfully. TuftsReviews can only be effective for the entire community if its reviews are accurate and honest. This is not a site for a student to 'get back' at a professor because the professor gave her/him a B instead of an A-.
e. All submissions on the site have been reviewed by current Tufts students, or previous alumni who helped to run the site. When you submit a review, you agree that we hold the right to decide which reviews to post online and the right to edit reviews for content and clarity. You also agree that we hold the right to not post a review.
f. We have made 'good faith' efforts to post online reviews that are informative, accurate, non-defamatory, and non-libelous. Those who use this site agree to use it 'AS-IS' at their own choice and at their own risk. Any concerns can be addressed to email@example.com.
