Retreat Attendees

​Finding Your North Star: Reflection Series for Sophomore Students

 

Finding Your Own North Star is a reflective workshop for discovering your true path in life and in business. On the surface, it is about effective tools you can use immediately to develop your vision and bring clarity and direction to your life.  But really? It is about gaining knowledge and skills to apply to similar situations and applications in the future. It is designed for people who have important life choices to make, but struggle with moving from who you are to who you desire to be. By the end of the first gathering, you will understand how to use your internal compass to recognize opportunities and avoid mistakes. You will begin to develop a whole new way of seeing that focuses on seeing patterns instead of problems and extinguish limitations to your success.


 

Dates: TBD

First Year/Senior Year Retreat

 

The First-Year/Senior Retreat is a unique overnight, off campus retreat that takes place once during the fall semester, giving first-year students an opportunity to go to an off campus retreat location to meet other first-year students and hear stories and experiences from current Babson seniors. These upperclassmen share their experiences and guide first-year students under the model “if I knew then, what I know now,” speaking on overcoming challenges and obstacles (ex. academic challenges, social pressure, friends/relationships) during their first year at Babson.

Students attending the retreat are provided opportunities for engagement with classmates, reflection on their Babson experience, and mentorship and guidance from upperclassmen and Babson staff.

Registration for the retreat is available at the beginning of the Fall semester. Spaces are limited, and students are required to submit a $20 refundable deposit to secure their spot. Transportation, meals, and overnight accommodations are provided.​  For more information, please contact Conor O'Brien​
