Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
