Undergraduate Events

Each year, more than 800 undergraduate student events are held on Babson’s campus.

There is a buzz of activity that goes on day and night at Babson, often driven by innovative events spurred by the undergraduate community. Student clubs and organizations, departments, centers and institutes at Babson host events for undergraduate students that enhance the time students spend outside the classroom.

Student leaders organize many of these events. For example, each week students gather in Reynolds Campus Center for the Bidwell Thursday Night Series for karaoke, trivia, acoustic music, and more - all planned by students!

Babson traditions include Late Night Breakfast, involving faculty and staff chefs serving late-night waffles and tater tots during finals week, and Reunion and Homecoming, when undergraduate students connect with alumni who have returned to campus.

Attending events is a great way to connect and develop relationships with faculty, staff, alumni, and fellow students. Annual events include:

  • Org Fair
  • Spring Concert
  • Food Day
  • Founder's Day
  • Knight Parties
  • Babson Players' Fall & Spring Shows
  • Fraternity & Sorority Life Fundraisers
  • Shabbat Dinners
  • Family & Friends Weekend
  • From Day One
  • Babson Dance Ensemble Performances
  • Multicultural Fair
  • LGBTQ & Allies Welcoming Reception
  • Educational Abroad Fair
