4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's not as expensive as living on campus, many apartments are within walking distance from the college and prices are fairly reasonable when you have roommates.

College Junior

Greek Life: Becker does not have sororities.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The school is very small, so there are many social circles and it's easy to get to know people within your campus dorm. The cost of living is expensive for the dorms that are provided. The furniture isn't as new and many of the dorms have small rooms that can barely fit two people.

Nightlife: There isn't much transportation within the nightlife scene, but clubs are easy to walk to from the Worcester campus. Many parties take place over the weekend every few weeks. Becker isn't much of a party school. Night clubs aren't as popular anymore, but they're all underage.

3 College Junior

Majors: If I was given the option to choose the same major, I would choose a different concentration within the business program. My career goal to is to work for a sports franchise such as the Boston Red Sox or Philadelphia Eagles within the management and marketing department. The difficulties that I may find is that my major isn't specific, so focusing on a specific job is hard to find without the main skills needed that were supposed to be learned during college years.

3 College Junior

Majors: My major is in the process of changing. The college is adding different majors and adding more criteria to most of the majors. I find that difficult because professors are coming and going and it's hard to connect with professors for only one semester. For any incoming freshmen, students should get to know their professors for the real world as much as possible and stay focusing and choose your major wisely and do look into it as well.

3 College Junior

Athletics: School spirit isn't big at the school. Football team has an audience but not a big audience; as well as the basketball games. The other sports don't get recognized as much as they should. Many of the sport facilities are located off campus and aren't easy to get too without your own transportation.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There are three malls within the area. One of the parks have seasonal community get together's that help decorate the park. There is a cultural art show every year and there are two main Worcester museums where students can walk too. Many of the sports activities happen on the Leicester campus and they always provide transportation to them.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Becker College is located in Worcester. There are many crime scenes that take place in Worcester. Many crimes that are near the campus, happen to colleges students such as robberies when walking alone at night time. Don't walk alone after class, calling campus police to assist you is a good thing to do.

Scholarships: It became confusing when it came to applying for loans, but a good tip is to start as early as you can instead of last minute.

3 College Junior

Academics: The business program is changing yearly and isn't completely structured with reliable professors just yet. The curriculum itself is decent and many students come to Becker College for the game design program.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: I wouldn't recommend the cafeteria food. Many students prefer to go to the snack bar or order food from outside sources. The cafeteria isn't appetizing. The meal plan itself provides snack bar money and a specific number of cafeteria meals that are good enough for each semester.

3 College Junior

Weather: The weather on campus is typical New England weather.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are all very different at this school. You are either a gamer, a animal student, or a jock. The three don't usually intermix.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Not many majors are offered, the biggest ones are gaming, vet science, and nursing.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The pre-vet offered at Becker is one of the best but it is very course intensive and a lot of work.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I have only heard of marijuana and alcohol.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Campus strictness isn't bad if you know where to go.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity is definitely present major wise and also by ethnic heritage.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Most of the parties are mediocre and they are all on the Worcester campus, making going to them more difficult since it is a 15 minute drive.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I have had good and bad experiences with academics as far as professors go.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are only a few computer labs on campus because it is a smaller school. But the wifi offered is terrible.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is all in small, old, run down houses and dorms. They are poorly looked after and are very ugly and old.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was offered a scholarship right away when I showed interest for the school so I'd say the scholarship part was great.

2 College Freshman

Parking: In Leicester it is much easier to find parking because the area is more rural. However in Worcester it is very complicated because you are right in the city.
