It's often listed as just plain old Tufts but it is indeed a university. Sometimes people complain because Tufts is not an ivy league school, like Harvard, but they should thank their lucky stars that they're not at an ivy league school.
Tufts is right near Davis Square in Somerville, MA. The mascot is a giant elephant named Jumbo (because P.T. Barnum of Barnum and Bailey fame was one of the initial big donors). Oh, and it's on a big hill.
