Inside The Lodge: From The Babson Student-Athlete Perspective

  • Senior Reflection: Women's Lacrosse's Lexi Lenaghan
    May 16, 2019
    When transferring into Babson my junior year, I was looking at the school for obvious reasons; the academics and the outstanding network that came with a degree from here. What I did not realize was the immense sense of community and shared interest in competition that came with being a student-athlete here.
  • Senior Reflection: Men's Soccer's Noah Parker
    May 14, 2019
    To the facility workers, trainers, coaches, and faculty, and to my friends, siblings, parents, and extended family, I thank you for the past four years at Babson.
  • Senior Reflection: Field Hockey's Lauren Drakeley
    May 09, 2019
    Growing up, my parents instilled two characteristics into my siblings and me: to work hard and to be kind. I always valued these two traits above any others, but it was not until coming to Babson that I realized the value in trust. Whether it is trust in your teammates, trust in your coach, or trust in the process, Babson field hockey taught me how valuable it is to have trust in someone and to be trusted.
  • Senior Reflection: Men's Cross Country's and Track & Field's Matthew Dynan
    May 02, 2019
    When asked to write a reflection about my time as a Babson athlete, I struggled to decide on what part of my career to focus on. There are so many amazing things I took from my time on the cross country and track teams, but when it all boils down there is one attribute that I am thankful for above all else: grit.
  • Senior Reflection: Women's Volleyball's Abby Beecher
    April 30, 2019
    Babson volleyball provided me the opportunity to learn to love a sport again. Reflecting back on my three years at Babson, I often wonder what kind of person I would be without having played for this program.
  • Senior Reflection: Women's Soccer's Emma Dineen
    April 18, 2019
    Coming into the preseason my freshman year I didn't really know what to expect, other than I was going to have to keep my head down and work hard to earn a spot on the team. I was nervous to be at the bottom of the food chain again, but was beyond excited to compete at the collegiate level and meet my new teammates.
  • Senior Reflection: Men's Ice Hockey's Stevie DeForge
    April 16, 2019
    It’s taken me four years to fully understand, and I’m sure I’ll appreciate it more as I grow older and am an alum, but I’ve learned that Babson hockey is not just four years of your life. It’s much more than that.
  • Senior Reflection: Women's Cross Country's and Women's Track & Field's Chaela Hood
    April 11, 2019
    As I entered my freshman year at Babson, I was filled with anticipation and excitement surrounding the countless learning opportunities I would soon experience. What I didn’t expect, though, was that some of the most important lessons I’d gain throughout college would come from varsity athletics, and that many of those lessons would be more valuable than anything I could have gained in the classroom.
  • Senior Reflection: Women's Basketball's Bianca Tomassini
    April 09, 2019
    As I returned back to campus this fall, I had one thing on my mind and that was winning a NEWMAC championship. I had high hopes for my team. We were veteran heavy and returning 13 players from the previous year, when we went 18-9 overall. My teammates and I all shared the same goals and knew getting to where we wanted to be was not going to be easy.
  • Senior Reflection: Men's Swimming & Diving's Adam Kershner
    April 04, 2019
    I frequently reflect on my red-eye flight to Babson the night before move-in: August 27, 2015, United flight 1976 from Phoenix to Newark, and then a quick hop from Newark to Boston the morning of August 28, move-in day. I did not swim in high school, but was a swimmer for most of my childhood before taking four years off from the sport.
  • Senior Reflection: Women's Volleyball's Catherine Hunter
    April 02, 2019
    The biggest thing I learned from playing volleyball at Babson College was how to embrace the struggles that life throws at you. A consistent theme that Coach Neely preached throughout my three years with the program was having to “deal with adversity”, whether it be manufactured intentionally or having occurred naturally.

  • Semester Abroad: Softball Junior Kayla Schinik Reflects on Studying in Australia
    January 14, 2019
    My name is Kayla Schinik and I am a junior on the Babson softball team. Having such a huge passion for traveling and exploring different cities and cultures, I chose Babson knowing that I would be able to study abroad one semester while also playing a sport. This past semester I had the opportunity to study abroad at the University of Sydney in Australia. Australia was my top pick because I believed it would be great for me to go (very) far away to meet new people (and ironically some that live in close proximity at Babson that I otherwise may have never met), explore a continent that I'd never been, and experience a completely different side of the world. That was the best decision I have ever made.
