What is a legacy?
A legacy is a son/daughter, brother/sister, or grandson/granddaughter of a fraternity/sorority alumnus. It is not a requirement to be a legacy to join a fraternity/sorority at Babson. Most of our members, in fact, are not legacies of any group, and some may have joined a different organization than their family members did.
As a legacy, am I guaranteed a spot within the chapter?
If you are a legacy, we would strongly encourage you to include that information when you register.
I play a sport at Babson. What happens if I can’t make it to an entire event?
We understand that you are required to be at your practices and games for your sport. If you find that you might have a conflict, please let an event organizer know.
How much are dues?
Dues vary for each chapter on the Babson campus. Your first semester is always the most expensive semester for one-time new member fees or purchases, such as your chapter badge. Chapter dues often decrease after the first semester and vary by chapter. Be sure to ask chapter members during recruitment about specific chapter costs. Dues information will be shared during formal recruitment. For Interfraternity Council Fraternities, dues generally range from $350–$500. For Panhellenic Sororities, new member dues generally range from $400–$650 but initiated member dues are less, ranging from $250–$350.
Will I be hazed as a new member?
Hazing is absolutely not allowed by Babson College or by any international/national organization. If you feel that you or someone you know is being hazed in any way, please report the behavior to a Babson College official or on our anti-hazing website.
