Election Edition: Joe Thibodeau



Hometown: Andover, MA…REPRESENT!

Tufts Affiliations (greek life, other orgs like senate, etc): Tufts FOCUS, Study Abroad (Tufts-in-Madrid Program), Tisch Scholars Program, 3P’s, WMFO, TDC, volunteer at Somerville Homeless Coalition, TCU Senate, and my job at the Ginn Library (come visit!)

Favorite Movie? Remember the Titans

What are you currently listening to? “Everywhere” by Michelle Branch (Don’t Judge)

Favorite store/brand? I’m a MAJOR fan of the J. Crew outlets but recently discovered Uniqlo and am in love!

Yourself in one sentence? I’m a fun, passionate and outgoing person who smiles and sings his way through life.

Favorite part about Tufts? It sounds really cheesy, but the people. Tufts has really introduced me to so many different perspectives and world views. Before coming to Tufts, I went to an all-boys Catholic high school in suburban Massachusetts. Things have definitely changed, and each person I meet teaches me something new and exciting every day!

Dewick or Carmichael? Carm is by far superior…

Have you ever painted the cannon? YES! We did it for Senate our freshman year and for Tomas’ campaign.

Can you eat like a JUMBO? I’m a hardcore foodie—no lie. Best Tufts Night=Stir Fry Night. Hands Down. No Competition.

What is the most Jumbo-thing you have ever done? Watched the sunset with best friends on the library roof. Doesn’t get much better than that.

How fast can you get up the memorial steps? 30 seconds? They’re HUGE!

Most embarrassing childhood moment (keep it young)? I dropped my glasses at a pool party and when I bent over to pick them up my swimming trunks split wide open. There was a whole lot of Thibs showing after that…

Favorite Boy Band? Lets just say THIS GUY owned both the Millennium and Black & Blue CD’s…so Backstreet will always have a special place in my heart (Btw their best song is most definitely “The Call.” It really speaks to me).

Best advice for Jr. Jumbos? Take risks. You only get four years at this awesome place, so soak in every minute. Keep an open mind and don’t be afraid to try new things. College is definitely what you make of it, so take advantage of literally every opportunity that comes your way. I promise, you won’t regret it!
