Why I Chose Babson
I applied to colleges without specific professional goals, but I love solving problems. At Babson, I knew I would receive hands-on experience instead of just learning about the business world through a textbook. Also, although I visited 14 colleges, Babson was the only school I felt I would be able to learn about all aspects of business instead of just one specific major.
What I Love About Babson
Babson is big enough that I will never know everybody here, but I’m always running into the same people around campus and making new friends. I’m also a CWEL Scholar, which has made a huge impact on my Babson experience by surrounding me with confident, independent women who are so easy to get along with. I’m involved in other campus organizations as well like the Babson Outdoors Association, Campus Activities Board, Origins of Necessary Equality, and Pride, through which I can advocate for the LGBTQ community. I’m able to take advantage of all of these amazing opportunities because of the financial aid, grants, and scholarships I received.
What Others Need to Know About Babson
What’s great about Babson though is that you don’t have to study abroad to be exposed to new cultures. I’ve met people from all over the country and around the world on campus, and I’ve learned to understand others in the context of their culture. I see Babson as one giant melting pot, and the diversity here has really opened my mind to other perspectives.
