Campus Life and Activities

Life at Babson is everything you hear in an admissions meeting and more. As a first-year student, I came to Babson, like many of my peers, ready to buckle down and work hard, but quite early in my time here I heard a lot about the many clubs, organizations, and extracurricular activities that are available…

Final Weeks of Senior Fall

This is my second to last semester at Babson. I chose to overload in credits this semester, taking 4, 4-credit classes and a 4-credit elective abroad course to Chile, totaling a 20 credit semester. I could have done the normal 16 credit semester by taking 3 4-credit classes and doing the elective abroad, or 4…

My Summer Vacation 2015 = Beach, Family Time, and Networking?

I am recently back from a relaxing and sunny vacation on Cape Cod. Our vacation to the Cape for my family consists mostly of hitting the beaches with my husband and our two boys, ages seven and eight. Yes, my #happyplace is working at Babson, but my personal #happyplace is located along the Cape Cod…

Choosing Babson

Happy April! This month is a hectic one in the admission office as we prepare to welcome the Class of 2019 to our admitted student events. Many students are still weighing their options as they decide where to enroll next year. For others, however, they know that Babson is the place for them and can’t see…
