Undergraduate Laptop Program
Babson is entering its tenth year of providing laptops to undergraduate students. For those ten years, we have partnered with IBM and Lenovo, the leading vendor of business laptops and a leader in the adoption of laptops in higher education. ThinkPads are known for their durability, high quality, and excellent support. Your laptop can be a great aid to your studies, and it’s beneficial to take a little time and get to know it.
