The best thing about Babson is you are immediately immersed into the nuts and bolts of running a successful business. If you're into straight theory classes instead of actually doing the fun work...
This is like a selective art school, except for business. You gotta LOVE business and entrepreneurship from the get-go to succeed here, tough to transfer to another major.
The immersion teaching style: first thing you do on campus is brainstorm ideas for the business you will run in the spring semester.
The bubble: it's not easy to get to public transportation and with such a small school it's hard to socialize with people from other schools (except Olin and Wellesley of course)
The quality of professors who teach here. They have all worked in their respective fields and most continue to do so. They are willing to meet with you outside of class to discuss academic issues...
I think it is hard to find something that is just so incredibly terrible here that is worth writing about. Everyone has small things that they would change- I guess mine would be the late night...
Another awesome thing is entrepreneurial spirit and can-do attictude. Lots of international diversity as well.
Every student at this school needs a humbling experience of some sort.
I wish I knew actually it was exactly as I anticipated.
