A Typical Week In The Life

Hey everyone! There have been a number of prospective students asking what a typical Babson student’s schedule looks like, and the answer most of you probably heard was, “well there isn’t really a typical Babson student but…”

Well… That’s kind of my answer too. I wouldn’t consider myself a “typical” Babson student, but I’ll give it my best shot to show y’all what a typical week looks like for me!


In a typical week I ride my horse, train other horses, intern in admissions, babysit, and attend a number of meetings for Chi Omega, Greek Council, Panhellenic Council, and Babson’s new Equestrian Team…it never ends. Oh, and go to class. I’m rather busy.

As far as figuring out how I color-code my crazy schedule:

  • red blocks are Chi Omega events (including Firesides that I went over in my last blog)
  • blue is for class
  • orange shows when I work
  • magenta is for panhellenic council meetings
  • green is for Greek Council
  • purple blocks off time to ride horses
  • royal blue is for my group-invitation events (synced with my google calendar…everyone uses google calendar except me apparently.)
  • brown is for all other meetings
  • grey is for the gym

The huge blocks of free space in my calendar are for the important things like homework and sleeping.

On a more “typical” week for me–not that there ever is one


  • 11am-2pm: Work in Admissions
  • 2:30pm-7pm: Train Horses
  • 7pm-8pm: Dinner
  • 8pm-12am: Movie Night in the ChiO Tower

Saturdays I typically spend in the library and again–training horses.


  • 11am-12pm: Brunch in Trim with my sorority sisters
  • 12pm-3pm: Train horses in Natick
  • 3pm-6pm: Finish up homework for the upcoming week
  • 6:30pm-7:30pm: Chi Omega Eboard meeting
  • 9pm: send out the Greekly Weekly

The Greekly Weekly is a bi-weekly newsletter I send out to Babson’s Greek Community to keep them up to date on all things Greek–namely the great events we have throughout the semester!

This sunday night I have to go to a screening of The Maltese Falcon for my Detective Fiction class as well, I can’t wait! It’s always a busy week at Babson.
