Back during the celebration of the finals of the Casa de Campo Copa Semana Santa polo tournament, the first “Babson Reunion” in the Dominican Republic was celebrated.
“Babson” being Babson College in Boston, the famous business college which counts many well-known Dominicans among their alumni, including our very own Philip Silvestri, CEO and founder of SILGON (creators of this awesome website, as well as CasaLife Magazine, TODO Casa de Campo and TODO La Romana – Bayahibe guides, INMORTALES baseball magazine, and web service provider).
The Babson Reunion took place in the Veuve Cliquot Experience tent (where else!?) during the finals of the Casa de Campo Copa Semana Santa polo tournament and was a fun opportunity for the Dominican Republic’s Babson alumni to get together and catch up… “It was fun. Catching up on what’s happening with the school, reminiscing on the good old days, comparing notes on professors, talking about what we can do to make the DR-Babson community more active”, said Philip Silvestri.
Among the Babson alumni in attendance was Alain Astacio, Charlie Gonzalez and Humberto Sangiovanni.
So what is Babson College, and why do so many Dominicans go there? Well according to Philip Silvestri, Babson is “an incredible school, consistently ranked #1 for entrepreneurship, which also has a very unique curriculum that immerses students in business from day 1.” Well we did a little research on that and actually it turns out that Babson has been ranked #1 for entrepreneurship by U.S. News & World for the last 16 consecutive news.
With so many Babson alumni here in the Dominican Republic, this is just the first of many Babson Reunions, so if you are a Babson alumni, please email [email protected] to sign up for future gatherings.
