Students and faculty play a large role in the selection of ExCollege courses. Each semester the ExCollege has approximately 50 student volunteers that help interview teaching candidates.
The ExCollege prides itself on obtaining a student perspective on each candidate's application before making a final course selection. In doing so, Tufts students have a unique opportunity to help shape which courses are offered at Tufts. Not many students at Tufts have a voice in what classes are offered, but the ExCollege values student interviewers for their honest feedback and genuine student perspective.
This is also a great opportunity to meet other students and faculty members at Tufts and to gain valuable interview experience.

Quotes from past student interviewers
"Also... being on an interview subcommittee, at least for me, was a very different experience. Usually I am the one being interviewed, so I feel in the hot seat, but doing the interviewing gives you a sweet sense of power and a vantage point from the other side of the table." – Benji Cohen, 2011
"Being in an interview subcommittee was a great experience; it was a very low time commitment that yielded a modest effect upon the future course offerings of ExCollege. I'm only a freshman, but I got the chance to represent the interests of all undergraduates. Interviewing allowed me to meet all kinds of interesting professors and hear about their sometimes unconventional class proposals. I loved the insider look at future ExCollege classes. All interested should seize the opportunity!" – Laura Kroart 2012
