All Good Things Must Come to an End

1460 days. It is hard to believe that this is how long I have been at Babson! It began on a rainy Friday afternoon in April, when I left an Admitted Student Day event and placed down my deposit for my spot in the Class of 2014. Despite the gloomy weather, I had this glowing…

Real World Road Rules

Although my internship ended about seven months ago, I still vividly remember how prepared I felt throughout the eight weeks. I often found myself working on teams with interns from schools other than Babson. They were students from top business schools. A common trend I found was that I was always the leader, the go-getter,…

Pursue Your Passions Every Day

Every week I am faced with the challenge to decide how I want to spend the next seven days. I have 168 hours, or 10080 minutes, or 604800 seconds to spend in any way I wish! Here at Babson, a common theme is making the most out of every day. I have never met a…

Super Bowl and Senior Year

Wow, it’s (basically) already February! Which means the Super Bowl is on Sunday. I could not be more excited, especially since my hometown team will be playing (go Seahawks!) Babson’s Student Government is hosting a party in Roger’s Pub. It is going to be fun to unwind on a Sunday night and take a nice…

Thanksgiving Break and a Sweet Return

While it is always exciting to be at Babson, a nice break is sometimes necessary. With the semester coming to an end, this is the time of year filled with projects, papers, presentations, and exams. So when I peaked at the calendar two weeks ago and remembered that I was about to have an entire…

I remember the first day of class freshman year. One of my professors what talking about an economic policy that applies in the United States. A student raised his hand and said “I am from China and this policy would never function in my country.” He then explained how this aspect of the economy functions…

156 Hours

This past Saturday, I attended the Undergraduate Award Ceremony. Some of my closest friends and classmates were recognized for outstanding academics and community involvement. Sophomore, Junior, and Senior students were all presented with different awards and scholarship. It was impressive to see the diverse range of activities students had contributed to in and out of…

Senior Year is so Suite

Babson offers many different types of housing opportunities available to its students. Typically, underclassmen have a roommate or two. I lived in a triple and loved it! The sense of community was incredible. Then as a sophomore and junior I lived in a single in my Sorority’s tower. Finally, as a senior, I am enjoying…

A Sweet Return

What a great feeling it is to be back at Babson! The last nine months have been an adventure, to say the least! As you may remember, I was lucky to spent five wonderful months during my spring semester, studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain. I will reminisce more about my study abroad experiences in my…

Comfort (American) Food

Although I am LOVING Spanish food (tapas, paella, gazpacho, Spanish omelets, etc) I miss American food–or food that I can get in America. Before I arrived in Barcelona, my sister and two other friends who have studied in Barcelona all told me that I “HAD TO” try Bo-de-B. Wow! Bo-de-B is amazing. It is easily…
