3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: If you have money and transportation, the city of Boston can be a blast clubbing and drinking with your friends, but for us average folks, it can be tough to afford and manage to attend such events.

Nightlife: There isn't a lot of nightlife on my campus because many of the events tend to occur off campus and in the city.

Nightlife: Don't really know you have to go into Boston.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: It all depends on who you know and what you consider to be fun, the college doesn't put on too many parties but there are plenty of students who will throw them in their dorms or suites

3 College Junior

Nightlife: We have a pub at Babson where students go to grab a drink or for trivia night. There are also greek life parties or the most popular ones are the ONE tower parties (the group that promotes diversity on campus). But usually people go off campus for parties since MIT throws the best parties. But of course there are different cliques in college and I personally hang out with a group of laid back friends that enjoy playing board games or card games or watch a movie. You can also challenge your friends to a game of billiards, air hockey or ping pong at the campus center. All depends on your interests.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Anna Klimentievna Gatker
View all previous student authors

Years ago, it was common to walk into the Pub and not even get your ID checked, allowing you to slip on a fake bracelet and drink all night long! Today, this is highly unlikely, especially because BABO now has an electronic license card reader. These are not very good places for large parties, but they are great for socializing and mingling with friends. A free "beer garden" is provided by the school, so sometimes there is no need for a pre-party for the 21-and-over crowd. If the on-campus parties start getting boring and you are looking to get off campus, Boston is the best place to fulfill almost anyone's wants and needs.

If you're under 21, the nightclub scene is right for you because there are plenty of fun places that cater to the underage crowd in and around Boston. If you are looking to play pool with friends, go clubbing, or listen to a jazz band play, you can find all that and more in the downtown area. If you don't want to leave campus, there are plenty of parties, which are relatively chill compared to the dress-up game that you might be forced to play when going into Boston (numerous places have dress code rules). Plus, nothing beats getting free beer—whether it's at Roger's Pub or in one of the many suite parties that one of your friends is apt to inform you about.

Truth be told, this nightclub offers one of the hottest upscale night scenes in town. Its chic decor is as much a part of the scenery as the crowd of people donning chi-chi duds. Chill at the bar or the back lounge, then head for the dance floor. Cover is $10 to $15.
