About

Candle-lighting. Light on the Hill. Illumination.  

Though the name has changed through the decades, the heart of this tradition remains the same. According to legend, when Charles Tufts donated the land for the university to be built upon, he said he would put “a light on that hill.” 

Each year on the night before Commencement, graduating seniors gather on the Hill to light their candles, one from another; marking the end of their time as students and beginning their lives as Tufts alumni, knowing they carry this light with them into the world.

Be the Light.

On May 21st, this year's graduating seniors will participate in their Illumination Ceremony-- celebrating their last night as Tufts students before joining the proud alumni community. 

Honor these 1,602 students as they carry their light into the world. Giving to the Illumination Fund for Financial Aid provides much needed financial support to next year's Jumbos, who are the light on the Hill. 

1,602 donors secures $50,000 from Lori Winters Samuels (J81, A22P) and family.
