Clubs and Organizations

There are many opportunities at the graduate school to get involved in the community, network, have fun, and enrich your education.

For example, there are over 25 different student-run organizations of all types, ranging from business-related clubs to special interest groups and athletic organizations. Each organization is helmed by a leadership team, which is responsible for executing the mission of the club and management of membership and events. Elections for leadership teams occur in both the spring and fall semesters.

Starting a New Graduate Student Club:

If you are interested in starting an organization not already represented, you can certainly take steps to do so by registering a new organization or partnering with an existing organization. 

All new Graduate student clubs must demonstrate viability and sustainability:

  • Viability: There is demonstrated interest in the student body in the club and the club is able to meet these needs. Clubs must have a distinct mission and purpose and cannot substantially overlap with an already existing club. The club must enhance the Babson community.
  • Sustainability: The club must have future longevity on campus, which is measured through annual club goals, the number of activities held per semester, and club membership numbers.
