4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of restaurants and dining options in the area, my only complaint is that being in the town of Wellesley, prices can run pretty steep if you don't do your research.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's pretty pricey and the town with food is about thirty minutes away from campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: you cna't really get any

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Good food – When I was visiting a few of my friends had taken me out to eat a a few places. I personally liked the food, but all of our taste-buds are different (I can't compare it to my mother's food. Nothing will ever beat that Southern style soul food). I wish I could speak on the price, but the seniors treated me so I don't really know. But I'm pretty sure it wasn't too expensive (like Applebee's expensive). Oh, I also like the home-like feel of some of these diners.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Great Food, a Little Pricey but Convenient – We are in Wellesley which is an upscale town so food is going to be a little pricey but the selection is great and so is the food. If you drive anywhere from 5-15 mins off campus there is really any type of food you could imagine. We have a lot of dining options on campus and in Wellesley, but if you drive 15 mins down the road you get to the Natick Collections Mall which has every type of food imaginable.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Anna Klimentievna Gatker
View all previous student authors

With their busy schedules, most Babson students can only find time for off-campus dining on the weekends. Mexican is an option the Wellesley area lacks. That's when you should take your best friend or someone who you don't mind sharing a car with for 20 minutes and drive into Boston. Leaving campus to dine out is usually a rare pleasure for students, so enjoy it when you can!

The monotony of campus dining can drive anyone to stop enjoying the food at college. The yearning for diversity in food should make even the most studious student try out at least some of the copious places in Wellesley, Boston, and on Route 9 in between the two. The one downside is that students are usually too swamped with homework during the week to be able to enjoy a few hours away from campus, but that's what weekends are for. Start by exploring the local dining area because there are many tasty options, and they're not too far from campus.
