Family Orientation

The orientation program helps you and your student adjust to the Babson lifestyle and eases the transition into college by providing information and answers to any academic, personal, and social questions.

Orientation for parents and families of new students is a two-day Orientation program taking place on Friday, August 29 and Saturday, August 30. Following move-in and check-in, parents and families are invited to participate in a variety of programs and sessions to acclimate you to the Babson campus and community, and get a glimpse of the experience your student is about to embark on.
