With their last year looming, what do these seniors still want to do?

Go to the Mendon drive-in theater at least two more times. Finally go sky diving. Camp on Mount Washington. Spend a spring break heading south instead of north. Ride a bike to Boston and back. Partake in an offshore Babson course. Take two semesters of Arabic at Wellesley College. Start my own investment portfolio with companies that relate to what I care about. Make it through two weeks of living on campus without eating at Trim once. Always have fun and take advantage of every adventure that comes my way. —Philippe Topdjian ’14
I would really like to take a road trip with some friends down to Nashville, Tenn. I’d love to see the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Being a huge fan of country music and long drives, I think this would be an incredible opportunity to spend time with friends and see part of the country along the way.—Dean Oliver ’14
First of all, I would like to graduate with a great job lined up. I also hope to make Dean’s List my final two semesters and win a NEWMAC championship in either soccer or lacrosse, or both! Finally, my favorite animal is a shark, and it is a crazy dream of mine to cage dive with a bunch of sharks.

I want my field hockey team to win the NEWMAC championship and make it to the Final Four. We have worked extremely hard up to this point, but next season I think we really have what it takes. Field hockey is my passion, and achieving this goal would make my senior year complete. —Morgan Lockwood ’14
Of course there are a lot of selfish things that I want to do before I graduate, like get a glamorous poster of myself in Hollister, speak at the Commencement ceremony, win an award at the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Day, and take first place in the Creative Thinking Prize. But being at Babson has taught me to leverage every opportunity to make social change. Therefore, before I graduate I want to do the Ghana offshore course, and also spread awareness about the plight and revitalization of the African continent through leadership in the Babson African Student Organization. —Julian Addy ’14
