Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Food is not too bad. After a while you'll get sick of it but Rey's has a salad place, sub station, burgers, etc. Trim (the dining hall) has good and bad days but overall it's probably better than what you'll get at other schools. Babson is always willing to help you with dietary restrictions (vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, etc).

    Everyone complains about the food at Babson, but personally I think it could be a LOT worse. Usually I can find something fairly palatable, and sometimes they'll even serve something really delicious. You also have the option of eating at Reynold's (the student center), which has a Pizza Hut, Subway, Dunkin Donuts, a Chinese-food place, a Mexican-food place, and sushi. Lastly, you can also eat at Olin School of Engineering, which is a 7-10 minute walk away. One big problem that students find with dining is that there is no place to eat if you get hungry late at night, because Trim closes at 7 and Reynold's closes at like 9 or something.

    The cafeteria isn't that great. But Reynolds has better food and the school is adding a new cafeteria in a residence hall. The food that will be there is based on a survey they had us fill out, so I expect that food to be better.

    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.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    I'm not involved in Greek life, but I definitely see its presence on campus. They are always hosting events and such, I think they host a large number of the parties on campus, and there is also Delta Sigma Pi, which is a professional frat. That being said, I can't say that the influence of Greek life is overwhelming, because everyone is involved in tons of different clubs and organizations, so Greek life does not become the defining characteristic of any student or group of students.

    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.

    Great greek life!! I certainly love it! There is the sororities kappa kappa gamma, sigma kappa, and chi-omega. Then there are the frats which are AEPI, Theta Chi, Delta, and Sig Ep. So many good opportunities and events to take part of and you meet wonderful people. EXTREMELY ANTI HAZING SCHOOL so don't worry (:
