While the Babson campus and surrounding area is a very safe community, one always needs to make sound decisions regarding personal safety. College students can sometimes feel they are immortal and it is unthinkable that they could become the victim of a serious crime. In many instances, if students rely on common sense, they will not find themselves in situations that jeopardize their safety. Babson is consistently rated as having a very safe campus by both students and ranking magazines.
In 2007, Babson College implemented a rapid notification service to improve our communications capabilities in the event of a serious campus crisis or emergency. The College partners with Send Word Now—a real-time emergency notification system that allows the College to communicate with our students, faculty, and staff during serious campus crises such as public health emergencies, campus emergencies or incidents, and other catastrophic events. Using the Send Word Now platform, the College has the capability to simultaneously broadcast emergency messages via telephone, email, cell phone, and text messaging with information that will be critical to campus safety.
In compliance with the Clery Act, campus security information is available on the Public Safety website. Paper copies also are available at the physical location of the Babson College Office of Public Safety.
