​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Alumni Weekend

September 16–18, 2016

​#Babson

Last year, we saw a record-breaking number of alumni return to Babson for Alumni Weekend.

With more than 1,900 alumni, students, faculty, staff, family, and friends

in attendance, this is our biggest alumni event of the year. With opportunities to reconnect, celebrate milestones, and have some fun, Alumni Weekend 2016 is poised to be the best yet!

Don't miss comedian Loni Love!​

Loni-Love.jpgThere will be plenty of laughs when comedian, author, actress, and TV personality Loni Love​ performs at Alumni Weekend! She is the co-host of the nationally syndicated TV show The Real as well as the Café Mocha radio show, and can be seen in movies that include Mother’s Day, Mall Cop 2, and Soul Plane. You might recognize Love from her regular appearances spinning tunes as the house DJ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Join us Friday night for an ​evening of comedy and fun.​
