Coming from what was a highly industrial community where environmental preservation was an afterthought, Tim fostered an individualized care for the environment that he hoped would get others to see the importance in basic sustainable lifestyle habits. As a result, Tim’s interest in the environment stemmed from high school literature that exposed how large industries have enacted a form of structural violence through unregulated damage to the environment resulting in the decline of the health of populations. Additionally, Tim is very interested in the sustainability of food production. Aside from being interested in the environment, Tim runs cross country and track and field for Tufts, plays the banjo and beat boxes.

Amanda Weeks

Miller Hall

Harry Weissman

 Tilton Hall (Fall 2015)

Harry is a junior who, after dabbling in Environmental Studies and the pre-vet track for a few years, is finally majoring in Applied Math and Biology.  He developed his passion for animals and the environment during his formative years on Long Island, NY, watching The Lion King, Bambi, andPocahontas on repeat.  His favorite animal has always been the hyena, and frankly he’s quite disappointed in the hyena shortage on the Tufts campus and vows to do something about that. Harry’s primary environmental concern is wildlife, but he also thinks everyone should have and use a reusable water bottle and a reusable thermos.  When he’s not collecting recyclables or arguing with his mom about washing laundry with cold water, you can find him doing homework, schmoozing and/or napping at Hillel, injuring himself during Burlesque, pretending he’s more than halfway decent at the oboe in Granoff, or pretty much anywhere else on campus, helping some first-year with math.  Harry enjoys collecting animal sculptures, complaining about heteronormativity and trivial personal problems, strenuous hikes in the woods, deep philosophical discussions, romantic candle-lit dinners, and long walks to Dewick.  If you have any questions or issues such as: “Where can I recycle/compost this?” or “What do I do with this injured bird I found?” or “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up,” feel free to dump the burden on Harry and he’ll do his best to help!
