It’s alright, education wayyyyyyyyyyyyy overpriced don’t do any hands on, people who work in the vet clinic are complete assholes, they are extremely difficult to contact and don’t care if you need accommodations, along with not telling you what you need for accommodations until you have a day or two left to do it. Food is ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING I lost 25 pounds on campus cuz I could not keep any of it down. If you need accommodations don’t come here they don’t care about you or what accommodations you need. Way over priced for everything. Also if you have an ESA people will judge you for one outbreak your animal has. Also don’t let their dogs in the vet clinic outside more than once or twice most students train them while they are inside their kennels still unbelievable!

My favorite thing about Becker is the atmosphere. The class sizes are small which gives Professors the opportunity to bond with students. Two campuses is double the fun, and there is space to do everything from studying to napping. I also love the snacking opportunities on campus and take full advantage of my Becker Bucks that are included in tuition. My major is nursing, but I have also taken interesting classes about animal science and psychology. Everyone is welcomed at Becker, I feel very at home in Worcester and Leicester. Although the classes are challenging, they are gratifying. I am very happy with my decision to attend Becker College.
Unfortunately, our campuses were closed due to COVID-19. The transition was not easy, but Professors were very understanding. Most of my classes removed deadlines to lift stress and final exams turned into essays. I was sad to miss out on sports games and other spring events but appreciate that Becker cared about our health and safety. The College gave updates almost daily on all things COVID-19 and news about the college. I would prefer to return to campus in the fall but online learning is not that bad. Zoom classes are convenient and I still felt connected to my Professors and friends.
