A yearly tradition celebrating the hard work of our graduating seniors.
Undergraduate seniors who are graduating from Babson College are eligible to participate in the week of festivities. Senior Week Committee members are busy mapping out the activities for the week. The ticket price for the 2015 Senior Week will be announced in the spring.
This year's Senior Week fundraiser, the Spring Auction, is scheduled for Thursday, February 26, from 5-8 p.m. in Knight Auditorium. Students, faculty, staff, families, and friends are encouraged to attend. If you are unable to attend, we will send out information on the auction items as well as a form for "phantom bids." Interested in donating? We are seeking donations of clothing, tickets to sporting events, travel packages, gift certificates, and electronic devices.
Senior Week Policies and Procedures
- Graduating seniors are eligible to register for Senior Week. Registered seniors will be given a wristband that in combination with government issued identification (passport, driver’s license or state identification card) will grant them access to all Senior Week events. Registration can be done online or in person at the designated times.
- Students who miss the published registration deadline may request to be placed on a waitlist. Waitlisted students will be notified if and when spaces are available but are not guaranteed access to Senior Week events. In case of extenuating circumstances that hinder a student’s ability to register for Senior Week by the published deadline, the student must contact the Senior Week Committee Advisor via email prior to the registration deadline.
- Individuals without Senior Week wristbands and government issued identification will not be admitted to events.
- Buying, selling, duplicating or transferring Senior Week wristbands is strictly prohibited.
- Fees for Senior Week are non-refundable after registration has closed and is a complete package, meaning no tickets will be sold for individual events. Students will not be refunded any money if they cancel past the deadline or if their participation is restricted by Babson College due to community standards violations. In the event that an activity is canceled or changed due to weather or unforeseen circumstances, every effort will be made to provide refunds if and only if refunds are provided to Babson by third party vendors.
- All bags and/or carry-on items brought to Senior Week events are subject to search.
- Consuming alcohol prior to events or ‘pre-gaming’ is highly discouraged. Students who are visibly intoxicated will not be admitted into events by Senior Week chaperones. Individuals found responsible for damages throughout the course of the week will be removed from events and charged a cleaning/repair fee.
- No tickets to individual events will be sold. However, registered Senior Week participants are allowed to purchase a ticket for one guest to attend the Senior Ball. A guest of a Senior Week participant at the Senior Ball is the responsibility of that Senior, who will be held accountable for the actions of their guest. Guests must have at least one form of government issued identification.
- Any student attending Senior Week must show respect to the Senior Week Staff (including but not limited to college staff, Senior Week committee members, faculty, volunteers and venue staff). Any harassment of, or altercation with the staff is grounds for immediate removal from the event and further disciplinary action. You are responsible for all of the information, policies and procedures about Senior Week on this website so please read through this site and registration forms referenced forms carefully.
