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…

Identity

College is considered a time when you are supposed to discover yourself. Who am I? Who do I want to be? These questions are constantly running through students minds, including myself. However, it is very easy for us to lose sight of who we are or who we want to be, when society has labels…

Greek Week 2013!

  This past week was the highlight (I hope) of most Babson Greek’s year–GREEK WEEK! During this week, all of the fraternities and sororities compete to win the coveted Fraternity & Sorority Cups. This year the theme was World Series, and I may be a little bias (since I planned the entire week), but I…

Memoirs of a Freshman

Whenever someone asks what my favorite Babson memory has been–I’d by lying if I said anything but the Quidditch games at Greek Week my freshman year. Greeks and Non-Greeks alike swarmed the upper fields that windy April saturday to watch over 100 fraternity guys and sorority girls battle to the death…running around playing quidditch. Being…

Crutches at College

Everyone that has ever been hurt knows that being on crutches is not fun. I have been on them once before, and I can honestly say nothing is worse than being on crutches at college. Babson is a small campus, so all the students walk to get from point A to point B. This was…

A Home Baked Treat

While eating in Trim Dining Hall and Reynolds is delicious, it is nice to mix food options up every so often. I mentioned to my sorority sister Allie that I missed my mother’s healthy baked treats on nights I had to stay up late to study. To my surprise, I returned home from Horn Library…

A little bit about me…

Hello, this being my first blog post I thought I would take a little bit to introduce myself. My name is Christina Symanski, and I am going be a junior this fall at Babson. Born and raised in Annapolis, Maryland, I have been riding horses my entire life–competing throughout the east coast of the US,…
