Senior Week Policies and Procedures

  1. Graduating seniors are eligible to register for Senior Week.
  2. Students who miss the published registration deadline may request to be placed on a waitlist. Waitlisted students will be notified if and when spaces are available but are not guaranteed access to Senior Week events.
  3. Individuals who are not on our final roster per event and have government-issued identification will not be admitted to events.
  4. Buying, selling, duplicating, or transferring Senior Week registration is strictly prohibited.
  5. Fees for Senior Week are nonrefundable after registration. Students will not be refunded any money if they cancel past the deadline or if their participation is restricted by Babson College due to community standards violations. In the event that an activity is canceled or changed due to weather or unforeseen circumstances, every effort will be made to provide refunds if and only if refunds are provided to Babson by third-party vendors.
  6. All bags and/or carry-on items brought to Senior Week events are subject to search.

Individuals found responsible for damages throughout the course of the week will be removed from events and charged a cleaning/repair fee.
  8. Registered Senior Week participants are allowed to purchase a ticket for one guest to attend the Senior Ball. A guest of a Senior Week participant at the Senior Ball is the responsibility of that senior, who will be held accountable for the actions of their guest. Guests must have at least one form of government-issued identification.
  9. Any student attending Senior Week must show respect to the Senior Week staff (including but not limited to college staff, Senior Week committee members, faculty, volunteers, and venue staff).
