BOW Wintersession Project




What is the Babson/Olin/Wellesley Wintersession Program?

The Three College Wintersession program takes place the last two weeks of wintersession and culminates in a presentation to staff and faculty from all three colleges on the results of the program itself. It is a chance to work intensively with other students from Babson, Olin, and Wellesley on a project for a non-profit client chosen by the coordinators.

The participants are housed at Babson College and work space is provided by Olin College. Wellesley College pays for the coordinators stipend, which is $500.

There are three coordinators that manage the program from its inception to its culmination with the selection and training of coordinators for the following year. As a group, the coordinators are expected to choose a client, participate in training, choose participants for the program, lead the program, handle logistics, spread awareness of the program, choose the next coordinators, and train incoming coordinators so they can continue the program the following year.
