|All Day ||From Root to Sky: Sachiko Akiyama (Multi-Day Event)|
Click here to RSVP
Artist Talk and Reception: Wednesday, April 5, 5:00 P.M.
Exhibit on View: April 5–May 19
Sachiko Akiyama’s work brings together artistic influences of Brancusi, Egyptian funerary sculptures, medieval Christian woodcarvings, and contemporary sculptors with the artist’s personal experiences and Japanese heritage, notably Japanese fairy tales. Her carvings convey a sense of centeredness and direct connections to nature that opens up the door to creation mythologies and other mystical possibilities. The figures’ relationships to flora, fauna, and the elements speak metaphorically to the ways we find meaning in our lives and meet the challenges of our surroundings.
|End Time 6:30 PM ||ADVANCED YOGA (Multi-Day Event)|

This class will give you a better understanding of your body to master it and manipulate it to the form of your choice. With poses involving flexions, extensions and inversions, you will see your body getting enlightened.

Tools for Building Fundraising Participation Webinar
Ranking organizations like Princeton Review and U.S. News and World Report annually confirm Babson’s leadership in business and entrepreneurship and reinforce the value of your degree. Participation – the number of alumni donors each year- is one of the key criteria the ranking agencies utilize when evaluating each institution. Your support makes a difference.
Unlike most other schools, giving to Babson is on the rise, and we have volunteers to thank for it!
So, how can you help us continue to build this momentum?
Learn the ins and outs of Babson fundraising, and walk away with strategies and know-how for inspiring fellow alumni to give. Led by our Advancement fundraising teammates and joined by rock star alumni volunteers, this is an hour of invested time that will pay dividends (literally)!
