Coming as an international student, I wanted a student body which is diverse and reflective of today’s global world. The Babson community is so supportive, and we have access to all these wonderful clubs and hands-on learning classes versus lecture-heavy classes. I’m really glad I chose Babson.

What Do January Admission Applicants Do During the Fall After High School?

A wide range of things. Some students admitted in January work to save money and then travel. Others pursue service opportunities or internships. The following is a short sampling of some activities pursued by recent January Admits:

Travel the World

Take a Much Needed Break

“It was really a much needed break for me after finishing high school. I spent a lot of time working with my dad at his company [a construction equipment company]. I also traveled a bit in India. It was nice having the time to spend with my family, which you generally don’t get when you’re working or in college.”

Try Out New Ideas

“I decided to take a gap semester before I applied. I started my own online community and newsletter chain. Also, because of the timing, I was able to represent Canada at the World Youth Chess Championship.”

Try Out New Ideas

“I worked 40 hours a week. I experienced what it was to be a real, real adult. I worked for a landscaping company over the summer a little bit and in the fall, I started working for Home Depot. Before coming to Babson, I started an apparel company, which I luckily still have running today.”

Gain Real-World Experience

“I worked in retail at Alo Yoga in Manhattan, 5th Ave which really got me into the business world. The store I worked at was a brand-new location, and my team and I had to build it up and had many promotional events. It got me more interested in marketing, plus helped me gain real-world experience.”

Invest in Your Hobbies

“I played two years of junior hockey before I came to Babson. My dad is an airline pilot and flight instructor and learning to fly is one thing I never had time to do. I was able to get my pilot’s license that time.”
