Smart but lazy people. Tufts people are very bright but did not feel the need to outwork their high school peers in an extraordinary way, which is reflected in them going to Tufts, instead to school were people are smart and not lazy, such as Princeton, LSE, Oxford and the likes.
John is smart and ambitious, he went to Princeton to become an amazing computer engineer. John is always the first at work every day and leaves last.
Bill is smart but lazy. He didnt work enough in High school to get into Princeton but somehow managed to get into Tufts.
One day, after college he wakes up and comes up with a great idea that involves a website. He hires John to help him. Bill retires at 35 and plays golf with his billionaire peers, John keeps figuring why he did not have the same idea.

Tufts: A university for kids who worked just as hard (and on occasion harder) the their Ivy peers in high school, but just weren't interesting enough to get into the Ivys.

Resulting in an overall, hard working, VANILLA student body with little no social life.

student b: naw, i think i'm just going to head the lib and circle jerk on an econ textbook.
student a: ....yo, do you go to tufts?
