Back to Beautiful Babson!

It has now been three weeks since the semester started back up and my routines have been established again. Luckily, it’s my senior year and despite classes, 2 campus jobs and an internship, I have managed to create a schedule that leaves me with quite a bit of time to enjoy many activities! One of…
