Honestly.. this school seemed like my dream school and here I am three years later hating every waking minute I have to be here. Becker College has lied to me about transfer credits they would take of mine. They gave me a grant but apparently made a mistake on it which ended up making my tuition even more expensive in the middle of a semester. I had to skip a semester because of a past due to balance and they wouldn't let me register for courses. This school is a private school and that's important because don't think for a second that they would rather see you get your education until they can get every single dime out of you first. The staff here is beyond incompetent. I had 3 different staff members tell me different stories about why my bill changed. No one is on the same page there. I have a couple great teachers there but the rest are the laziest people I have ever had to learn from. Most teachers don't even come up with original material most of it is copy and paste from websites. Some professors don't even write their names or the right class year on the syllabus. They just recycle the same garbage from the previous year. I had a teacher for the 2 years I had her class not spell my name right even though it spelled in the email. I told her several times and she refused to acknowledge it. There are barely any people of color that go to this school and it makes you feel like an outsider. Some of the teachers don't respond to emails or get back to you. Overall I don't recommend this school at all and if I had the opportunity I would take all my money back and start over at a new school.
Overall, Becker has a good sense of community. There are many different types of students that come from every walk of life that you can think of. The on-campus housing is fine on the Worcester campus but they need a lot more options on the Leicester campus. There is some off-campus housing in Worcester but virtually none in Leicester. The school it trying to become bigger, but it will take some time.
Our professors are always willing to help students and are super available. The staff everywhere is wonderful, especially in the cafeteria. Academics are strong but help is super accessible and the student life is overall pretty good. Living on campus can be difficult and eating at the same place can get boring but the staff does all they can to keep it interesting for us.
It’s an amazing historical college that has an awesome media center and great professors!

The advice that I would give myself is to not wait till the last minute for homework and other assignments. This will just be a huge stress load. Once an assignment is given to you get that done right away. This will make life so much easier. Also I wish I knew making new friends would be so easy. I was stressing over meeting new people and having to make new friends all over again and it was so easy. The next thing I would tell myself is since your paying for college you might as well try your best. This is not high school no one is looking out for you except your self. Your future relise on these next four years and you want to give it your best. The last thing that I would tell my self is that these next four years are going to be some of the best years of your life and that when a new opportunity shows up do not be afraid to just run with it. Becasue you never know what direction your life will take.
The most friendly and energetic people around.
Becker College is organized in a way which supports the best interest of the students by preparing students for what is expected of them, offering a variety or courses, accessibility to resources such as the tutoring center and the help desk, a caring and safe environment throughout the campus, extracurricular activities including sports and lectures/fundraisers which bring the students together to interact, offers both a Worcester, MA and a Leicester, MA location, and most importantly offers a high standard education.
My school is more unique then other schools I considered because it's a lot smaller than the ones I got accepted into. I got accepted to Rhode Island College, Eastern Connecticut State University, and Uconn at the other campuses besides the main campus in Storrs, CT. All of the those colleges have a lot more people. My college is tiny which allows everyone to usually become friends. You will always find a best friend at my college. The professors are people who came from what they did in life themselves. The school is good.
I loved the 2009 / 2010 school year. Our housing was great I had hoped for my Advisor to be more helpful though when I went to her with questions.
what exactly I wanted to do. I had changed my major twice for going with Psychology. I feel like i wasted a year of schooling figuring out what is was I truely was interested in.
The most frustrating thing at Becker College is the parking. They allow undergraduates to bring cars which is helpful, but they don't have enoguh parking space. During the winter, the snow makes it even more difficult because students cannot park on the streets and the parking lots are not plowed in an efficent manner.
There Pre- Vet Program and Game Design Program is what the school is best known for.
It is good that it is a smaller school because it's easier to focus on your work and everyone knows each other.
Anyperson would be suitable to attend Becker College because the campus is beautiful and the programs are flexible.
Becker is a small private college, located about 8 min from downtown, it has 2 campuses one in Worcester and one in Leicester. Students spend most of their time in the Hawks Nest (Worcester Campus) and Hawks Haven (Leicester Campus) which are lounge areas form students. The library is also a popular place because there are private rooms that you can reserve if you want to do study groups.
One of the main things that I love about the school is that fact that all of my professors know me by name, not just one of the students in the class. All the classes that deal with my major I absolutely LOVE, usually everyone is eager to participate and interact with one another. Becker offers really great programs like Nursing, Veterinary Science, Criminal Justice, Business, Interior Design and my favorite Legal Studies. The program is designed in a way that allows students to grown and understand each aspect of the law. All the professors that teach the law classes are amazing and they are practicing attorneys, which is a big plus.
i love how much everyone is envolved, the kids there are awesome and people really take the time toget to know you! like you who are where you want to go and what your interests are in life. i love how everyone is on a first name basis it makes it more personal and home like! i think its amazing how the school is open to new ideas and encourage you to follow your dreams, and not just brag about it.
One stereotype about Becker students is that they're not getting as good of an education as students in nearby colleges and universities.
Some of the most popular groups at Becker include SGA (student government association); SASSY; Becker Journal; Nursing Club; Ski and Snowboard Club; Yearbook etc. Also if there is a particular club that students would like to make up they can, I'm not really sure how it works out. Athletics are very popular and the basketball team, the Hawks won the ECAC championship for the 2008-2009 season. There are also A LOT of student activities every single day, from yoga to field trips you will never be bored..
Not necessarily. Any college or university student will get out of college what they've decided to. The quality of one's education is not based upon the institution one enters, but on the amount of effort the individual student puts in. One could attend an Ivy League and graduate with little more skills or abilities then they went in with, however if one is driven, focused, and motivated, no matter where he/she is they can graduate with a world class education.
You shouldn't attend Becker if your not sure what you want to do. Becker is very much hands on in a lot of its different majors. Plus it costs a lot to go to if your not sure what you want to dowith your life.
