A Spotlight on Senior Athletes

To be a collegiate athlete.

It takes courage, and commitment. Time management, selflessness, and teamwork. Long days, and tired, tired bodies.

But, when your team is celebrating success, comforting one another in disappointment, or Trim sitting for hours together after practice … that’s what makes it all worth it.

Because to be a collegiate athlete is to be home.

To our seniors: there are no words for the seasons cut short, and the spring semester that should have been. But, there’s plenty to say about all the moments that led you here.

“Here’s to you,” said Mike Lynch, Pamela P. and Brian M. Barefoot Senior Director of Athletics and Athletics Advancement. “We started our Babson journeys at the same time, and grew up together in a special way. You are one of the most accomplished groups of student-athletes in our history, and you’ll have a forever home at Babson.”

Join us May 13 and 14 for our Barefoot Athletics Challenge in support of student-athletes.
