Cultural Student Organizations
Babson College's diverse international and multicultural population is extremely active, as evident by the multitude of student clubs and organizations.
Culture-based organizations often serve two primary purposes: to provide a sense of community for students from a similar background; and to educate the greater Babson community about the culture. Students are encouraged to work with Multicultural Programs as they and their organization plan programs and events.
Life@Babson is the primary way in which to explore the various clubs and organizations on campus; search by category (for example: multicultural or faith-based) and sign up to receive information and event announcements from groups which interest you. Below is a sample of the many culture-based student organizations at Babson. Click on their name to check out their Life@Babson organization pages.
