Health and Wellness
The transition to college marks a significant developmental shift from family-based adolescence to semi-independent young adulthood. Babson offers a variety of support resources including peer mentors; and Residence Life, Academic Services, Health Services, Student Life and Student Affairs staff.
If your child is currently on medication, please note that he or she should come to campus with an adequate supply for the first month or two. The Babson Counseling Program offers medication consultation and supervision in conjunction with counseling; however, students often do not arrange for an appointment soon enough and there may be a two- to three-week delay between requesting medication and an appointment (medical prescriptions that have been prescribed outside of Massachusetts may not be filled readily once students have relocated to Babson to begin their studies). If your child has a history of mental illness or emotional difficulties for which he or she received treatment and/or medication, please help your child by sharing this information with Babson.
While Babson holds a variety of programs throughout the year to help assist with making the correct life choices, your efforts are likely to have a great impact as well. We want your child to flourish, to learn from mistakes, and to celebrate successes. Through all the ups and downs of college, it is important that students take an active role in looking after their health.
