Remember the excitement, the anticipation (and sometimes the anxiety) of move in day? There’s no doubt that this year’s move in day at Babson will be different, and feel different. But we still want to make it as fun and surprising as we can.
One way you can help is by purchasing a care package for a student. We want one waiting in each dorm room when students arrive. It will be full of things they’ll need this year, like face coverings, sanitizer and technology wipes. But it will also be filled with some creature comforts that all college kids need.
It’s only $30 to support a student in such a meaningful way. In fact, when you purchase a care package we ask that you also leave some words of encouragement. We’ll type them out and slip them inside the bag. Our goal is to have our alumni and friends fund a package for every student by August 15. All donations up to $20,000 will be generously matched by Robert W. Eddy '95, P'24, College Advisory Board.

If you have a dorm, suite, or room of special significance to your Babson experience, please let us know and we will do our best to get your donated care package(s) to those students.
