Eric Roberge CFP®, '02
currently volunteers with various Babson initiatives and a seat on the BAA would be a logical next step in his quest to support the college. The ability to work within a group of highly talented individuals for the betterment of the institution that helped him along the way brings out a sense of pride clearly recognizable in his volunteer activities. Eric’s Goal for the BAA: To build on Babson’s message, adapting it in a way that is compatible with our alumni community and what we (as a whole) are trying to accomplish. Does our alumni population even know what Babson stands for anymore? The college’s message is extremely powerful, yet that message doesn’t seem to get through to the alumni; the very people who helped get it to where it is today. If we want Babson to remain a top ranked college, we cannot rest on our laurels. We must plan for the future. And we do this by designing a vision that satisfies not only the needs of the current student population, but also one that makes the alumni proud to be a part of such a unique culture. Eric will strive to be the link between the alumni and our Alma Mater.
