Cocurricular Experience

Your time outside of the classroom is very important to your experience at Babson.

Cocurricular experiences provide academic, social, and cultural opportunities for you to enhance your interactions with students, staff, faculty, Babson, and Boston. Past students have shared that among their favorite parts of Summer Study was getting to know their peers during free time and social activities. As you get to know your peers, you have the opportunity to engage with them and the larger Babson College community through workshops for business skills and fun lessons, such as cooking, art, or sports. You’ll also explore the Boston and Wellesley communities through trips off campus to recreational, cultural, and educational venues.

You’ll live on campus.

In 2014, students will live in Babson’s Putney Hall, located in the middle of campus with easy walk access to the Reynolds Campus Center, Trim Dining Hall, and classrooms. Students have an individual room furnished with Internet access, a bed, dresser, desk, and chair located in a suite with a shared bathroom and common living space. Putney Hall features a large community living space that includes a kitchen and a lounge with game tables and a flat-screen television for community events.

You’ll eat with the community.

All students in the Summer Study program are on a meal plan. The meal plan includes 19 meals per week at Trim Dining Hall—that’s breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday and brunch and dinner Saturday and Sunday. Trim Dining Hall is the award-winning dining facility for the Babson community. This all-you-can-eat, buffet-style dining hall is open every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for all summer students, featuring multiple dining stations with a variety of meal options each day including vegan and gluten-free options.

You’ll have access to campus facilities and resources.

Summer Study students receive a Babson Student ID for their time on campus. This ID will allow them access to Webster Athletic Center. Students also will have access to the Reynolds Campus Center, Horn Library, Babson Health Services, outdoor facilities, and many other student gathering places on campus.

Ensuring a Safe and Positive Environment

The program is an opportunity for students to experience college life before they are in College. For some, it might be their first time living on a College campus, others may have experience but this will be their first time at Babson. For everyone, we want to ensure a safe and positive living and learning community comprised of students from different cultures, religious backgrounds, or sexual orientations and gender identities. To help with this, we ask students to observe program and school policies.
