Elizabeth Sullivan, Noodle Brand Ambassador for Babson College
Although the “freshman fifteen” may seem inevitable, there are definitely ways to avoid it. Trim Dining Hall has various options that can help you adhere to a healthy diet. There is a large salad bar with many vegetables, and it sometimes even has grilled chicken to top your salad with. Additionally, there are vegan and gluten free options available every day for students who choose to go that route. Babson also has a gym where students can use machines such as elliptical machines, treadmills, as well as weight machines. The college offers free workout classes like Zumba and Yoga weekly too! One main piece of advice I can give is try to keep healthy snacks in your room for the times that the dining hall and Reynolds aren’t open. That way, you aren’t tempted to go down to the vending machine and grab a candy bar, or order late-night Domino’s.
