This spring, hundreds of donors, volunteers, faculty, and staff joined to celebrate our Centennial Year and launch the largest campaign in the College’s history. Babson’s goal is to raise $300 million over the next four years and attain a 40% alumni participation rate. While the Babson community anticipates an epic celebration in September, former President Kerry Healey and President Stephen Spinelli Jr. are traveling the world to discuss plans for Babson’s second century. – Jillian Erdos
