Freshman Lydia Collins, 19, looks out from her dorm building at Tufts University in Medford, Mass., Thursday, March 13, 2014. Collins took a year after high school and worked in Ecuador through Global Citizen. Tufts is starting its own program, hoping to remove the financial barriers that keep cash-strapped students from taking a year off after high school to travel or volunteer, and thereby offer an opportunity now typically only available to more affluent students to explore different communities and challenge their comfort zones before starting college. This “gap year” program launching this fall will pay for housing, airfare and even visa fees, which can add up to $30,000 or more. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)
