21!

This morning the Babson community woke up to the news that US News & World Report ranked Babson College the #1 undergraduate school for entrepreneurship for the 21st consecutive year!

The Small School Advantage

“A name, not a number” is the key phrase you will hear when you visit a small college. What exactly does this mean? To start, it means your Admission Counselor will know you personally.

Final Weeks of Senior Fall

This is my second to last semester at Babson. I chose to overload in credits this semester, taking 4, 4-credit classes and a 4-credit elective abroad course to Chile, totaling a 20 credit semester.

Tech Trek: Google & WeTravel

Each semester, Babson ugrads visit tech companies and hear from company representatives to get an “insider’s perspective.” It’s been a busy week here at Babson San Francisco with the undergraduate cohort visiting both Google and weTravel.
