First-Year Seminar

Explore how you can get the most out of your Babson experience.

Starting college isn’t always easy, which is why our First-Year Seminar (FYS) is designed to help you smoothly transition to life at Babson. You’ll earn a grade and one academic credit, but the purpose of FYS is to enable you to better understand your identity, your classmates’ identities, and what it takes for all of you to be successful students in the diverse Babson community.

These small, weekly seminars are required for every first-year student, and give you a powerful opportunity to build lasting bonds with each other, faculty members, and the staff at Babson.

Through FYS, you will:

  • Discover the academic and cocurricular resources available to help you transition to the Babson community
  • Explore multiple aspects of your identity and the complexity of the Babson community
  • Engage intentionally across differences
