It is also a reminder of the legacy we've inherited, our responsibility to cherish it, and the opportunity to build on it going forward.This past Friday was one of the most memorable days of my life. Sharing that experience with so many distinguished Babson leaders both past and present, our faculty and staff, students and alumni, special guests, and family and friends made it even more meaningful. Thank you again for making Babson such a unique and world-changing place to live, work and learn.
