Cheryl, an Associate Director in our office, has already been in Asia for two weeks, we’ve had our fantasy football draft, our students are back on campus, orientation for first…

Come on Down!

I know that the countdown until the final day of school is on for juniors in high school. Don’t lie. It will feel pretty great not only getting to the last day of school and having the summer ahead of you, but to also becoming one of the top dogs at your school. You are officially…

March Madness

Personally and professionally, March is one of my favorite times of the year. In our office, we are currently finalizing admission decisions and getting ready to release them this coming Sunday, March 9th. Counselors in our office may also start doing a little bit of spring travel for Babson (I’m headed to Illinois tomorrow and…

Pump Up the Volume

It’s no secret that admission counselors are deep into application reading at this point. Just like everything else, everyone has their own way to get things done. Most people in our office play music in the background while they read, so I figured I would give everyone a sampling of what our staff listens to…

The Best of Both Worlds

Stop me if you’ve been to one of our info sessions and heard one of our counselors say something like this before: “Boston is the world’s best college town.”  While this may be our opinion, it’s also on the internet! Check out this study by the American Institute for Economic Research, naming Boston the top…

Summer Reading

The Fourth of July is this week, and in New England, that date is kind of the unofficial start to summer. I know technically, summer started a little while ago, but here we’ll start to hit the hot weather and people start taking vacations. This is the time of year I always think about what…

Hannah the Hockey Prognosticator

With the best playoffs in professional sports about to start, I felt, as a Boston-area school, we needed an emergency Stanley Cup breakdown from Babson blog legend, Hannah Moriggi.  Hannah is, legitimately, the most knowledgeable hockey fan I know.  We’re talking about her watching regular season games, not bandwagon fans like me who tune in…
