Babson College Reviews

Babson is unlike any other institution. If you are at all interested in Business and want to make money with a great career, go here. Every person here is unique and amazing. The small school dynamic is special, and we are all fondled here by the staff unlike state schools which have automated systems. Small, personal classes with hands on learning define this school. If you want to party, you can join greek life or an org, or go out in Boston. A car on campus helps but if you don't have one, your friend probably will. A LOT of international students as well, definitely a plus.

Very good academics unlike other schools which have big lecture halls. At Babson, you are expected to be very engaged in class and do your work. Everything is perfect at Babson except the location. On weekends, a lot of people go to Boston which is about a 20-30 minute drive. Babson is definitely worth it if you plan on pursuing a business career. The people you make connections here are worth it alone. We don't get much attention college rankings since its a school that only has business as a major but the academic environment here is definitely top tier.
So far, my experience has been great! The school gave me the opportunity to network with people from all around the world. It has truly opened the doors to many opportunities.
