Babson College in Wellesley is starting construction on a new 75,000-square foot multiuse recreation and athletics center. Construction is scheduled to be complete for the start of the fall 2019 semester. The new center will nearly double the size of Babson’s current athletics and recreation facilities, improve the quality and quantity of available fitness equipment and resources, and provide new space for large campus events like student orientation, career fairs, conferences, and concerts. “As our community prepares to celebrate Babson’s first 100 years of excellence and leadership in entrepreneurship education, I am delighted to break ground on a facility that will truly transform student life on our campus for generations to come,” Babson College president Kerry Healey said in a press release.
