5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: So I got lucky in the lottery and got Park Manor West. I might be biased but it is the best residence hall here. The rooms are way bigger than the ones in Forest Hall and PMW is located quite near all the classroom halls. A lot of activities are also held in proximity to PMW. There's barely any party in PMW which suits me perfectly.

Athletics: I haven't been to a single athletic event but then again it's only the second week of school so who knows. I am surprised that there's an actual gym here. They have workout sessions as well if you want to join.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Babson wasn't my number one choice to be honest. I thought I would hate it here but I find myself liking it. The people here are really nice. Mostly anyone would be friends with you if you just reach out and say hi. I've seen some of students asking other students (strangers) to sit with them when they are alone. The professors are generally nice and willing to help.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus.

4 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are pretty nice, and pretty specious.

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...

2 College Sophomore

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.

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.
