The Babson campus is in full-fledge fall as we head into the middle of November! As we continue to see high visitor volume in our Admission Office through the end of the year, I thought I’d highlight the top ten places to see on campus through the eyes of Instagram! Whether you’ve visited campus already, are planning a trip, or love Babson so much that you are coming back for more, check out Babson’s #instatour:
1. Welcome to Babson
When you reach this sign, you know you’re in the right place! As you make your way to College Drive, you’ll see the beginnings of the 370 acres on which Babson resides, just 14 miles west of Boston.
2. Lunder Undergraduate Admission Center
Here you’ll encounter your first of many friendly faces on campus – the admission staff! If you’re visiting for an information session, official campus tour, or interview, this will surely be your first stop on campus!
3. College Drive
Every destination you could possibly want to access on Babson’s campus will bring you through College Drive. Although students are usually walking with a purpose to classes, presentations, lunch, athletic events, etc. it’s always good to slow the pace and take a look around at the beautiful scenery!
4. Trim Dining Hall
Babson understands the monotony when dining at the same place day after day, therefore Trim Dining Hall presents a variety of dining stations that change throughout the semester, and are constantly re-evaluated based on guest preferences and trends. The Dining Hall is an “all you care to eat” system.
5. The Babson World Globe
Originally dedicated in 1955, the Babson World Globe is one of the world’s largest free standing globes at 28 feet in diamter and weighing 25 tons!
6. Knight Auditorium
Knight Auditorium houses faculty offices, lecture style classrooms, in addition a large auditorium for campus wide events including business competitions, FME fairs, guests lectures and more!
7. The Glavin Family Chapel
A sanctuary for Babson community members to practice their religious faith, seek inspiration and guidance, and find peace in the quiet of a sacred place. The chapel welcomes people of all faiths, cultures, and traditions.
8. Fountain of Flags
Located outside Horn Library, the Fountain of Flags is a Babson landmark which features flags representing the countries of every Babson student on a rotational basis.
9. Residence Halls
Living in Babson’s residence halls affords you the opportunity to learn beyond the traditional classroom. You will meet people from all around the world and share in a culturally abundant community. You will be supported in learning about yourself and defining who you are becoming.

10. Reynolds Campus Center & Sorenson Center for the Arts
The Reynolds Campus Center (left) seeks to foster a sense of community for the College. A bridge between residential lower and upper campus, Reynolds is buzzing with activity at any time of day.
The Sorenson Center for the Arts (right) presents a diverse array of programming in theater, dance, music, film, video, literary art, and visual arts for on-campus audiences and the general public. The Center also supports the creative and performing experiences of student organizations while offering field-based learning opportunities for students working within business and liberal arts curricula.
