Health & Safety: Campus police could take a more proactive approach to alcohol abuse versus focusing on parking violations, but over all the campus police do a good job.

Health & Safety: Personally, Babson is GREAT for financial aid/grants. However, if entrepreneurship is not what you're looking for, I would avoid the school at all costs. Majority of freshman/sophomore requirements are all about running your own business, which seems like a great idea, but is not really ideal for ALL students. Also, the courses are VERY specific, so it is hard to transfer in and out.

Health & Safety: It's campus health services, you get what you expect. They are fairly good about scheduling you as soon as they can, the billing process can be a pain however.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Anna Klimentievna Gatker
View all previous student authors

The Public Safety team is well accepted by most students and is seen as a helpful agent in crime prevention, campus security, and argument mending. "BABO," the friendly nickname used for the Babson Public Safety personnel, explains students' accepting attitude toward the officers. The campus itself feels secure because it is so well lit everywhere, and it's in a safe town where crime is not an issue. Everyone knows the rules and policies here, but since it is a college, students do get out of control and happen to break a law or two along the way. When incidents occur, it's best to be very cooperative with BABO. If you do, they will be very considerate and helpful, trying to avoid making a student feel worse than necessary.

Partying underage is not strictly persecuted by the officers at Babson, and most of the time, they don't care if there are weekend get-togethers in dorms, as long as they're not too loud. Sometimes, students get caught because BABO breaks up parties, but they are either told that they have a "strike" or just to leave the party and not come back. If a student gets three strikes, he or she gets kicked off campus, but this seldom happens. The Babson police should be congratulated for maintaining such a highly visible presence and for giving the campus its secure feel.
