  • The dorms are great. Depending on where you live you get to have your own bathroom. The rooms are pretty big different than most other schools. It does not look…

    There are many options to choose from on campus, as well as outside of campus too! The dining hall offers great menus!

    Everything shuts down on Sunday besides Trim, which can be a little bland at times.

    Aside from the main dining hall, Reynolds offers great sushi, and right outside of Horn Library, Jazzman's has THE BEST COOKIES!

    The food here is okay. It's great at first, but you quickly get sick of the usual variety of food options. Babson is definitely making efforts to improve the food options for students. For example, it recently opened the grill at the campus center until 2am.

    The food on campus is pretty good. Trim, the dining hall, serves anything from hot foods such as yummy lasagna, mash potatoes, chicken, burgers, sandwiches, and pizza. If you are trying to eat healthy, then you have a choice between salads, boiled eggs, brown rice, sandwiches, and soup to cold cuts. If you want to take a break from the dining hall or you just don't have time to sit down and eat then there are also restaurants such as Pizza Hut and Dunkin Donuts on campus where you can buy something quick to eat.

    The food is great! Even if you are an international student, we have a global dining area in the cafeteria where there is a different type of cuisine from around the world everyday!

    There's only one main dining hall and one campus center with a numbe rof food options. We can go to the graduate school's dining hall and also Olin College's dining hall. Food selection may be limited but quality is pretty good.

    Since the greek life on campus is small, all the chapters are pretty close to one another. They also hold multiple events throughout the school year that non greeks can participate in

    Babson has a no-hazing policy so the Greek Life at Babson is not crazy and scary. There are 5 frats and 3 sororities that offer some options for different people looking for that lifestyle. About 15% of the campus participates in Greek Life and live in the towers on Greek Row.

    The Greek scene is increasing rapidly. During the Spring 2012 semester, 20% of students were Greek (a large increase from 15% the semester before). Fraternities throw great parties. Fraternities and sororities are a major part of the social scene.
