Sneak Peek: Class of 2019 Summer Reading

Rain, snow, sleet or hail…school goes on!

Perhaps many would agree with me on this: I have never seen so much snow at Babson as I have within the past few weeks. But no matter the inches and the miles-per-hour, campus life goes on! Professors use WebEx Online Conferencing software so you can have class within the warm comforts of your room.…
