Fall 2016

News, Notes + Nods


For three beautiful days in mid-September, more than 2,000 alumni, students, faculty, staff, family, and friends gathered on campus for a fantastic Alumni Weekend 2016. Classmates and old friends celebrated their reunions and toasted the accomplishment of raising $2.26 million for Babson in honor of their classes. On Friday, athletics alumni honored varsity teams and coaches at a milestone reception featuring Larry Lucchino, former president and CEO of the Boston Red Sox. Friday evening, alumni and current students enjoyed a comedy show by Loni Love, followed by a late-night breakfast at Trim Dining Hall. Among Saturday’s activities were gatherings, games, and great food at the Tent, as well as class parties and the Green and White Party at Knight Auditorium. Throughout the weekend, numerous other affinity milestone receptions were held and extraordinary people were recognized for their contributions to the College. Thank you to everyone who helped make it a weekend to remember.—Jeff Stupakevich, manager, advancement communications
