Resources abound on campus—whether an individual, an office, a building, or one of the academic resource centers.
Here are just a few of the many resources available to Babson students:
Not your typical college library - the high level of activity is immediately apparent upon walking through the doors. Students work individually and in groups using a focused collection of print, audiovisual, and computerized resources. The library subscribes to a vast collection of periodicals and newspapers available from any computer on campus through Internet subscriptions with Dow Jones Interactive, InfoTrac Web, Lexis/Nexis Universe, ProQuest Direct, FirstSearch, and Primark's Global Access. Electronic resources, such as Bloomberg, Reuters, Bridge, Compustat, and Morningstar, are available for industry, company financial information. Through the library’s online catalog, students can select books in both business and liberal arts topics from Babson’s supply or for delivery from other area college libraries.
Math Resource Center
One of the most valuable academic resources for students as they complete their required mathematics classes as well as upper elective math courses. The MRC is staffed by fully qualified students and faculty to guide students who feel challenged by their math material. The frequent, helpful open walk-in hours are often used by students for homework or exam preparation. The MRC is located on the first floor of Babson Hall, across from the Cutler Center.
Reynolds Campus Center (RCC)
The hub of undergraduate activity. As it houses the bookstore, dining options, gaming options, student mail services, serenity and student resource rooms, and the student iMacs, you will spend a lot of time at the campus center.

Speech Resource Center
Works closely with students as they learn how to be more effective communicators. Coursework may include speeches, oral briefings, class participation, or team presentations. The Speech Center also helps students develop competence and confidence in a variety of out-of-class projects and job-related presentations/interviews. Speech coaches include faculty one-on-ones and custom-designed workshops with Professor Sydel Sokuvitz. The Speech Center also offers rehearsal space and taping. The Speech Center is located in Horn Library.
The Writing Center
Supports members of the Babson community—staff, faculty, and students—who wish to strengthen their writing skills. The Writing Center is staffed by both Faculty and Peer Consultants. Babson’s Peer Consultants are among the most thoroughly trained in the nation and have presented at national pedagogical conferences. Appointments for half-hour, individualized instruction with Writing Consultants may be made by selecting “Writing Center Appointment” under Smart Tools on Babson Portal. The Writing Center is located in Babson Hall 205, facing the Fountain of Flags courtyard.
SPARK Peer Tutoring Program
Aids in student learning by offering trained, qualified peer tutors for five core Babson academic requirements: Managerial Accounting, Financial Accounting, Finance, Macroeconomics, and Microeconomics. The Peer Tutors aim to increase students' confidence and mastery of the subjects. Peer Tutors are extensively trained to work with students to support their overall understanding and enhancement of concepts and skills. The SPARK Program is housed in The Learning Center, located on the first floor of Hollister Hall. Students may schedule appointments online at www.spark-peer-tutoring.genbook.com.
