Time to Celebrate Babson’s Centennial

Anticipation continues to build as the Babson community gets ready to kick off the College’s 100th anniversary celebration. Throughout 2019, more than 22 regional alumni events will be held around the world, in addition to a number of festivities occurring on campus.

100 Babson Centennial

“During the year, we will share important new research, advance our strategic goals related to family enterprises and women entrepreneurs, and create social and economic value around the world,” says President Kerry Healey. “We will both honor our past and leverage this historic moment to prepare Babson for its next century.”

Among those preparations is the transformation of Babson’s main campus through four major projects: the recently dedicated Weissman Foundry and the Babson Recreation and Athletics Center, the Babson Commons at Horn Library, and Centennial Park, all three of which will be completed in 2019.

This fall, members of the College community nominated their most memorable Babson people, moments, and places for inclusion in the Babson100, a list to be revealed and celebrated in 2019.

The first major Centennial event is a February 8 fireside chat with President Healey and six of her predecessors, followed by a President’s Gala for students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Also, mark your calendar for the September 18-22 Centennial Celebration, which will bring three signature events together on campus: Babson Connect: Worldwide; the Academy of Distinguished Entrepreneurs; and Back to Babson.
