2 College Sophomore

Athletics: No indoor tennis courts, exclusive facilities for varsity athletes only, very disappointed with not being able to access these facilities. I pay $60k+ and don't get to use them? Come on, what is that...

Overall Experience: Terrible course selection process, professors are unhelpful, the administration is atrocious and corrupt, I was assaulted and the school did nothing, left him in the same classes as me, and left me traumatized. The lack of action is because the student was on a full scholarship and the school didn't want to ruin their relationship with the scholarship association. This is the most corrupt school I have ever discovered.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everything here is good so far. It's not what I expected to go coming out of high school as I wanted to go to a larger university with a better social life and with nice sports teams. However I did want to study business and this was one of the best business schools in the Northeast and I got a lot of financial aid so I considered here. After coming here, it was one of the best decisions I have made so far and I really enjoy it here. It's small but a good size and I love the professors, subjects, atmosphere and most things about it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Love the environment and community. The professors know what they are talking about and have experience in their respective fields. The college does a lot for their students and the opportunities afterwards are awesome.

Greek Life: Greek life isn't like big southern schools, but its my favorite part of Babson. People are committed and loyal their chapters, but still have non-Greek friends.

Off-Campus Housing: It's expensive, especially since you'll need a car to commute to campus. Most wealthy international students live off campus in Cambridge, most domestic students stay on campus.

Party Scene: Babson has its own distinct party culture. Campus police shut down any large scale parties, so drinking usually happens in dorm rooms in the beginning of the night. Upperclassmen suites will open up for dancing (though they are not roomy at all), especially during the spring for SODA season (Seniors out drinking again). After spring break, there is a party in a senior suite every night until finals, each one a different theme. About a third of the school regularly goes out on campus, and drinks pretty heavily. Another third goes clubbing in Boston, and the rest don't really go out. Many people find it hard to manage the courseload and party extensively.

Off-Campus Dining: Wellesley has plenty of restaurants for everyone, though pricey. Boston is only 30 min away.

Administration: The administration is easy to get along with, though they have strict rules that are enforced inconsistently. You have to be really stupid and/or drunk to get in trouble.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Trim has improved and now has grilled chicken during weekday lunches in the salad bar. Guests can use host swipes. It's possible to be healthy and eat the campus food, but everyone tries to cook and eat off campus as much as they can.

The best way to describe Babson: At first you'll feel like a fish out of water, but as time goes on, you somehow survive and become a lizard with tougher skin. No matter how hard you think your high school was, nothing can prepare you for the incredible and challenging academic life of a Babson freshman. Most students agree that the workload is by far larger than they initially expected. And although it takes some time to get used to the curriculum, students feel that the impeccable education is worth it.

Those who are unhappy with their education here are usually just not used to it yet. Many say that the school is too small and they get bored walking around campus and seeing the same people all the time. Voicing the fact that this college is smaller than many high schools is not uncommon here. Some students also complain that too many of their peers come from the same economic backgrounds, even though the campus is diverse in other aspects. The social scene, however, is better than expected for a business-oriented school, although it's not a party school by far. Students here are very serious about their education, and many are very competitive. School size is also directly proportional to the faculty-to-student ratio, which is where Babson excels in comparison to larger business schools. This ratio is important for the special attention that students receive from faculty. Professors are very well-educated and try their best to convey their knowledge to the young Babsonians. Although the workload can be shocking at first, it gets better with time. Most enjoy the challenges and hurdles of Babson's college experience, and believe that the education they receive is valuable to their future careers, and their future in general.
