Orientation

The Orientation program helps you adjust to the Babson lifestyle and eases the transition into college by providing information and answers to any academic, personal, and social questions.

Babson’s staff, faculty, and current students will be available throughout Orientation to help in this process. Orientation is the first experience you will have with your new classmates. You’ll have the opportunity to meet fellow residence hall students in your Orientation groups, and others during organized events. The experience will definitely be a time to remember! We hope that during your first few days here, you’ll begin to form a sense of belonging to our campus and consider it your new home!
