​Special-Interest Communities

Students living in special-interest housing have the opportunity to share in experiences with students who enjoy similar interests and lifestyles. Residence Education is open to suggestions about expanding and improving our special-interest housing program, and we invite you to contact us with your thoughts.

Current Communities

CODE

CODE (short for Community of Developers & Entrepreneurs) was founded in Fall 2015 by a group of students passionate about the intersection of technology and business. CODE helps Babson students develop technological skill sets to match their entrepreneurial mindsets. CODE is the go-to campus resource for anything and everything tech, and we're here to help guide you through the intersection of business and technology.

CREATE/theStudio

CREATE aspires to enrich the Babson community by encouraging all Babson students to create. CREATE supports the creative-themed living community theStudio and serves as an umbrella for all artistic and creative organizations at Babson. Through engaging meetings, creative workshops, and exciting events, we aim to show students the value of the arts both inside and outside of a business environment, all while providing the tools and space to create the future of business. Additionally, we hope to build bridges with other clubs within the greater Babson Arts community, in order to foster the long-term growth of the visual, performing, and musical arts on campus. We believe that by harnessing the creative, entrepreneurial spirit of Babson students, we can establish an organization that encourages our fellow Babson peers to be more creative so as to create the future of business.

E-Tower

E-Tower was the first special-interest housing organization to start on campus. This group of students is passionate about developing business ideas though the network of peers living in the tower. The tower is the heart of entrepreneurship in action at the College.

GIVE Tower

GIVE Tower will exist to cultivate a humanitarian spirit, build a force for volunteerism in the local community, and promote the interchange of social ideas. GIVE Tower is a special interest housing program that will arm its residents with an in-depth understanding of social issues. In alliance with the Office of Faith and Service, community members will identify opportunities to create a positive social impact in the greater Boston area.

Healthy-Living Tower

The Healthy-Living Tower, also known as the H-Tower, is a special-interest housing organization that aims to promote a sustainable lifestyle through the integration of mental, physical and spiritual health through a lens of substance-free living. We aim to create a supportive, familial community that serves as a student wellness resource and contributor on campus by working closely with other student organizations and campus resources to host events that align with our mission. Our members call us their home away from home where they are greeted by peers going about their lives in the common room upon returning from classes, where people connect on a personal level and have frequent late-night conversations, and where members motivate each other to be the healthiest versions (mentally and physically) of themselves.

ONE Tower: Origins of Necessary Equality

Origins for Necessary Equality (ONE) aims to promote an environment where individuals from various origins can come together and share once-in-a-lifetime experiences in a community that supports each member and the culture that he/she represents. The community as a whole can then embark on a journey together to create new memories through living and learning in an academic community while giving back to Babson through various events and programs. ONE recognizes the value of a helping hand, and is committed to furthering this reciprocal action through its commitment to community service.​

The House/Babson Political Association

The Babson Political Association (BPA) aims to promote healthy political discussion and participation on campus. We provide an inclusive space for students from diverse backgrounds to learn about and contribute to both national and international politics. Additionally, BPA hosts a number of annual events that help bring politics more directly onto campus.

Women Giving Back

Women Giving Back brings women together who are looking to help others and dedicate themselves to the community in their free time. Women Giving Back participates in community service activities both on and off campus. Members take pride in the extreme dedication of serving the same two off-campus group homes once a week, as well as participating in many on-campus service activities. This organization is made up of intelligent, genuine, unassuming women who focus on providing service learning opportunities that are both impactful and memorable.
