Dictionary definition of Babson College: "Work hard, play hard."
I’ve wanted to go into business since I was eight years old because I admired business owners I knew. Early in my junior year I discovered Babson on Google and have been interested ever since. Last spring, I visited the campus with my parents late in the day on a cold, overcast, Saturday afternoon. It was too late for official tours, but the moment I stepped foot on campus I knew Babson was where I wanted to be. The admissions staff was welcoming, but a friendly student was my best guide. She introduced herself at the Babson Bookstore and told us places to go and what make Babson unique. Even more than the great campus, I was amazed by the energy I found. We saw the Horn Library where enthusiastic students were hard at work, both independently and in groups. The dining hall was full of energy, too. Posters were up all over campus; in the dining hall, library, innovation center, offering diverse opportunities and ways for students to pursue their aspirations. This was the place for entrepreneurs to incubate their business ideas and to make them succeed and I knew it was also the place for me.

Do not ever expect opportunities to fall into your lap. Finding the right college is an opportunity, but the most important part takes place once you arrive on campus. As a new student, work hard to make every unfamiliar face one you can recognize as an acquaintance, dormmate, teammate, classmate, or peer. Make connections-- networking is one of the most important parts of college. Meet business people, ask for business cards, give out your email, follow up with people whose company you enjoyed. Take some time out of the day to have lunch with your professor. Approach the professors and faculty who work in the obscure offices-- gems of knowledge come from those people. Do something that benefits others, not just yourself. Serve the community- do not expect it to just serve you. Take all of these opportunities, but at the same time, make your own! Start a club, send an email to the entire undergraduate class, start a club sports team, coordinate service projects with local area schools, apply for a program that you have been told you will not get into. Take risks, make friends, and remember college is what you make it, but essentially its an OPPORTUNITY.
the best thing is no friday classes, i'd change the library times, its too small, people either react like wow good for you or oh where's that? i spend most of my time in reynolds, my dorm or pub, what college town? administration is awesome!, controversy is that the sox are better, there is starting to be a little school price, its unusual that there are no houses and no one parties, ill always remember going here
all my profs know my name, students are ALWAYS studying, id say 50% of their time is studying, class participation is very common, alot of intellect outside of class, students are competitive for grads, unique class- none,
We are stereotyped as rich, diverse, pushy, and cocky.

As I mentioned previously, Babson only offers one major, which is business, and it is heavily concentrated on entrepreneurship. Most of the students here already had some kind of business background before they came in; as a result, entrepreneurship became the common language among the students here at Babson. Although the workload here is relatively heavy compares to the other universities, but every student here knows how to handle the workload, at the same time start their side business using the resources Babson has to provide.
You will leave Babson with an incredible wealth of knowledge regarding entrepreneurship. Myself and two of my classmates started an entrepreneur consulting firm within 2 years of graduation, and we are currently successful at what we do, and are able to provide invaluable tips and services that help our clients to receive VC funding. Most of what you learn at Babson will be directly applicable to your later career, provided that you work in an entrepreneurship-related field.
Babson College is a globally-known, small business school on a beautiful campus full of goal-oriented students.
Amazing business school. Amazing people.
Stereotype: rich kids, all-work and no-fun, international, and guys are jerks
Truth: it's true that most Babson students are wealthy, mostly because they are the children of business execs. And yes, on campus a lot of us women can have a hard time finding a genuine guy to date -- a lot of them fall into the stereotype where they just try to impress women with their money.
HOWEVER, while Babson students work very hard, we also party hard. Babson has parties every Thursday and Saturday night across campus, and we business students know how to let loose.
I would have liked to know of the different scholarship opportunites that Babson college offers. When I arrived and enrolled at Babson College fulltime, my peers were speaking of the different types of scholarships that were awarded to them. Of these scholarships was the Diversity Scholarship. The online application process is also very crucial in determining the financial aid package that is given to students. Not too many students give much attention to online applications because they are a hassle, but this is very important.
The worst thing about my college is the low financial aid the offers to international students
If you are not entirely sure about business or do not want to be stuck in a cubicle working a 9-5 job in a business firm.
The most frustrating part about Babson is the crushing workload.
Babson, ranked #1 in entrepreneurship for over two decades, is for students who want to become innovators in the business field. The curriclum is built around frequent group assignments across a wide array of topics to provide students with a well rounded business education. Babson students have a wide array of interests and career goals that share a common theme of constant innovation and improvement. Many students go on to work on start up ventures while others take their entreprenrurial thought process to Wall Street and the boardroom. Prospective students should be hardworking, comfortable with group work and self-starters.
Greek life makes up about 30% of campus, but it's growing. There are 3 sororities and 4 fraternities at Babson, and they are made up of some of the hardest-working and campus-involved students here. I made the decision to join a sorority my sophomore year, and I'm so glad I did. Greek life gives you a whole new network, and made my Babson experience a lot fuller and more enjoyable. You can get academic support, moral support, have fun, meet new people, and have an escape from the stress of the classroom.
Honestly, the biggest reason was that I wanted to be near Boston (coming from Texas) and they gave a perfect financial aid package.
Babson pledges to match 92% of demonstrated financial need on average, something to think about.
If you're concerned about Babson's price, don't be.
