What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
Wait to get to the area before buying warm clothes if you are from a warm climate area. There is plenty of good shopping nearby. Meet the students and professor while school is in serssion. Eat in the dining hall, visit the library. This campus facilities are very clean and the buildings look practically new.
CK from Southern California
Differentiate yourself as much as you can! Babson looks for students that challenge themselves academically, who aren't afraid of tarnishing their perfect GPAs. Babson also looks for students who show initiative in their own learning, for only these students will succeed at Babson.
Nina from Honolulu, HI
Babson really wants to see that you have a passion for something, and they want to know a little about your plans for the future regarding that passion. They don't expect every student to be a business expert and to have already started a business in high school or anything like that. You'll learn, as you begin your academic journey at Babson, that business does not have a cut-and-dry definition, and it can be incorporated into any aspect of life. So as long as you show that you are motivated and passionate, you are good to go.
Katerina from East Setauket, NY
A's are not handed out at this school. If that's what you want then this is not the place for you!
Nicole from Los Angeles, CA
Whether you are going to be a first year student or a transfer, Babson does a great job with getting you integrated into the school. The community is a good size to get to know the people you will be spending the next years with, and the faculty and staff members are very nice so they serve as helpful resources for your learning and networking.
Kamisha from Brockton, MA
Be ready to have the time of your life while learning all about the business world. Take good use of its many resources. There are many food options and the dorms are fantastic as well.
