Guys & Girls: At Babson, you will find a wide diversity in both genders for everything, including; looks, wealth, religion, kindness, ethnicity, social skills, likes, dislikes, party goers and not. Both groups of genders differ tremendously. I would have to say that the girls are generally much hotter than the boys, however. Generally, the male population at Babson is not very attractive. The ethnic diversity of the entire school population is hugely diverse.

Guys & Girls: Best people. I love the "I don't give a f***" mentality that is on campus. This makes people way less judgemental and chill unlike many other colleges. I respect that people do their own thing and don't try to impress (which they end up doing because they are themselves). I have tapped into endless creativity becuase of it becuase I don't fear rejection. Inspriring open-minded folks who take action. Met some of my best friends here already. My suggestion is to not only chill with your inner circles, but move outside them as people are open to seeing new people. Also, don't make it a habit to get drunk with frats every other night lol (but they are cool too).

Guys & Girls: Social Life Gets Top Grade – Babson has such a large diversity for a small college that you will find all types. Well-heeled european fashion statements are expressed just as frequently as the sports jocks and jills in sweats and shorts, the preppys in their khakis, academics in their jeans, and entrepreneurs and business professionals in suits. There is someone for everyone here. Babson also has top fashion models in attendance. Business is the common language and interest, after all it is a business college. Relationships are mostly casual dates or group outings. I think students here are mostly interested in career, and they value relationships as far as how those relationships help their careers. They are not looking for hook-ups and flings within the college, as this is a small community and they don't want to be the subject of gossip. Some look to other nearby school communities for hook-ups. There are plenty of other colleges and universities nearby.

Guys & Girls: Cool People! Ok, here's the deal, I'm a very social person and I like talking to people. At the same time, I do not like talking to people who act shady or just don't know how to hold a convo for anything (I mean unless you're really shy and I know that). So coming to a place where the people are really outgoing is a definite plus.

Even though I will be a freshman for this Fall I have a lot of friends who are upperclassmen already. Whenever I chill with them I do not feel like a "freshman" hanging out with a bunch of "seniors". They make me comfortable to be with them all the time. I have great memories with these people already Really well rounded and accomplished people! So I like that too.

As far as my freshman class, I have to say they are some pretty great people!! I guess it is because we have already been deemed as the most energetic class to ever come to Babson (and TRUST we are LOL). I think it is pretty awesome how everyone is already talking to each other. We've arranged huge hangouts from Boston to NY. I can go on forever, but I gonna stop here. Inbox or post a question if you want to know more stuff :D.

Guys & Girls: Diversity on Campus – Since Babson does have such a high international population, you are destined to meet a lot of interesting people. The women here are very ambitious and driven which can sometimes turn guys off. It's hard to point my finger and summarize the typical Babson student because there is not a typical Babson student.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Anna Klimentievna Gatker
View all previous student authors

The average Babson student looks well-groomed, well-dressed, and very intimidating to an outside observer and some students, too. But most people understand that the reason for such attire is purely to impress the professors who are in charge of giving out grades. If you get below the surface of this facade, you will probably find shared interests and even similarities in their personal lives. Most guys and girls, however, don't entirely understand each other, and most don't want to put the time into understanding. So, guys and girls meet up at on-campus parties or in classroom study groups.

That being said, a common challenge is that people who meet at parties can't really get the true version of the opposite sex, because they are either intoxicated or just want to hook up. This is where the difference between guys and girls is apparent. Guys see girls as either very snobby or standoffish because they don't want to just hook up, in which case the guy tries to hitch a ride to Wellesley College, where the chances of meeting a girl rises incrementally since Wellesley is an all-girls school. The girl then thinks that all the guy really wants is to hook up, and she really does start acting snobby to get him off her shoulders. This is pretty much the lowdown on the relationships between guys and girls at Babson, for the most part.

Social Scene
Most students don't have a problem with social interaction; but both guys and girls have a tendency to be show-offs in and out of class. This characteristic does not stand in the way of meeting people at a Saturday night party, but it does have a direct effect on the day-to-day interaction between students. Student interaction is highly visible at the Trim Dining Hall, where most students come to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can see almost the entire school by watching the circular staircase that is situated in the middle of this great dining hall.
Hookups or Relationships?
Between the tough workload and the 60:40 ratio of guys to girls, relationships are not very common between Babson students. Although girls find guys attractive, they are constantly worried about their reputation in such a close-knit community. Guys tend to avoid relationships with Babson girls, but they do tend to form very close friendships. Therefore, hookups happen frequently.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Much of the Babson curriculum—and even out-of-class activities—focuses on group work. A simple interaction through a group project, a homework assignment, or a club event can sometimes start up a closer-than-usual friendship between a guy and a girl. There are also many on-campus parties that people attend, in hopes of meeting someone fun and possibly interesting enough to become a significant other. And when parties start to get boring, students can always explore the Boston club scene where they can meet people from other colleges, with Boston being the biggest college city in America. Also, winter months in the Northeast tend to make everyone feel a bit under the weather. When it gets cold outside, people seem to cluster in their dorms and rooms, watching TV or enjoying the company of their close friends with whom they tend to study. Early fall and spring are usually the prominent times for socializing with the opposite sex. It is fun to meet someone at a barbecue (which many organizations and sports teams try to organize in the fall), or even outside of Reynolds Hall (where kids usually sit to enjoy the sun with a refreshing smoothie). Webster Center is yet another place to meet a number of hotties, especially in the gym or on the upstairs indoor track.
Dress Code
Many wear either very fashionable or business-casual clothes to class, but J.Crew and Abercrombie & Fitch is the weekend style (for a lot of guys, especially). Dressing up for class is very important, not only for your social life but also for your in-class professionalism grade that the professor distributes. Some athletes, however, are brave enough to wear sports clothes to class, but most do that sparingly, and only if they have a game that they need to leave for early.
