Undergraduate Blog / First Year at Babson

Family and Friends Weekend has arrived

Family and Friends weekend has arrived at Babson, this weekend there is an amazing array of activities for visitors to participate in. It is always great to meet the many family members throughout the weekend. I plan to see the Babson Players performance tonight who always put on a great show.

My last blog post was just prior to New Student Orientation and I cannot believe it is already six weeks later. The amount of activity that has taken place has been amazing. One of our big events is the FME Kickoff featuringDoug Hall from the Eureka Ranch who spoke to the entire first year class and he challenged them to think big and to not be afraid to fail.

Students have attended lectures, created and delivered rocket pitches, participated in community service opportunities and learned a tremendous amount from faculty, fellow students and staff. Many first year students are amazed at how quickly the time has passed.

The fall New England weather has also arrived; it is a little cooler on campus these days. However, we are at peak foliage, and the campus looks outstanding. I have included a photo taken earlier this week.   It does not get any better than a fall weekend on a New England college college campus.
