Undergraduate Events

Each year, more than 800 undergraduate student events are held on Babson’s campus.

There is a buzz of activity that goes on day and night at Babson, often driven by innovative events spurred by the undergraduate community. Student clubs and organizations, departments, and centers and institutes at Babson host events for undergraduate students that enhance the 154 hours students spend outside the classroom.

Student leaders organize many of these events. For example, each week students gather in Reynolds Campus Center for the Bidwell Thursday Night Series for karaoke, trivia, acoustic music, and more - all planned by students! Babson traditions include Midnight Breakfast, involving faculty and staff chefs serving late-night waffles and tater tots during finals week, and Reunion and Homecoming, when undergraduate students connect with alumni who have returned to campus.

Attending events is a great way to connect and develop relationships with faculty, staff, alumni, and fellow students. Annual events include:

  • Spring Concert
  • Art Exhibits
  • Babson Dance Ensemble Performances
  • Multicultural Fair
  • Founder’s Day
  • Fashion Shows

  • Accelerator Session: Market Intelligence
    Accelerator Session: Market Intelligence Full Details [X]
    5:00 PM - 6:15 PM
    Babson Campus - Olin Hall - 101
    This talk will cover some proven practices and techniques for using primary research to gather relevant market intelligence.

    Primary research involves targeting the right people to ask the right questions in order to capture the right types of insights that you need, to support your decision-making. Conducting primary research is a skill that is easily learned but takes time and practice to master.  It is more art than science. It is the art of interviewing or engaging others in a free-flowing conversational style discussion designed to elicit the specific insights that you are seeking.  Come along to this session to pick up some great tips for what works!

  • Webinar: The Price of Life - Responding to...
    Webinar: The Price of Life - Responding to the Global Black Market in Illicit Organs Full Details [X]
    10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    Online

    The Price of Life: Responding to the Global Black Market in Illicit Organs

    Date: Wednesday, 17th June  2015
    Time: 10:00 am- 12:00 pm EDT and 4:00-6:00 pm CET
     
    Transplant lists grow longer year on year, and the percentage of successful matches made is in the single digits in most countries. While the purchase of organs is illegal almost everywhere in the world, organs are still procured through the growing illicit black market. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that traffickers illegally obtain 7,000 kidneys each year globally.
     
    Criminal groups target the most vulnerable in society (the poor, the homeless, refugees and children); harvest their organs at a fraction of the cost of sale; and provide minimal subsequent care. Organ trafficking can also occur in addition to sex and/or labour trafficking as part of a multi-level equation of exploitation. As always, with the market forces at play and the demand being motivated by a life or death calculation, the question of how to manage the illicit trade is a major public health consideration. What is being done to address the trafficking of organs, and how can the private sector work in tandem with government, academia, and NGOs to combat this serious form of illicit trade? 
     
    This webinar is the sixth and final in a series entitled “The Private Sector and the Future of Illicit Trade: Next Generation Human Trafficking and Smuggling Challenges” looking at emerging issues surrounding human trafficking and promising anti-trafficking initiatives from the private sector. This series is hosted by the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime and Babson College's Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery and through sponsorship by McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP.  Also supported by TraCCC, the Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center at George Mason University.

    The webinar will feature a panel of experts from the private sector, academia, public policy, and the NGO community (to be announced).
