I love Becker. I am in the adult accelerated program and feel that, for the most part, I am getting my money's worth. My professors are knowledgeable, and are often formidable forces in their fields (one of my professors is the VP of Accounts for a prominent local business, and another is in upper management in the Risk Management Department at a large local insurance company). I enjoy knowing that the professors I'm learning from have taken what they are teaching, applied it in their lives and were successful. Also, I love the fact that I have lots options for both online and in-person classes. The tuition is a bit high and the buildings do need some remodeling (especially the parking areas!), but overall I am enjoying my experience at Becker quite a bit!
Campus police are easy to call, and believe reports of threats, as happened down the street at another hall earlier in the fall semester. They patrol regularly and get to know the students so as to quickly differentiate between students and outsiders in any situation. There was a sexual assault on a student earlier in the year, and without revealing information about the student, the word was out about the vehicle and manner of kidnapping used, to keep the rest of us relatively safer.
Not good for anyone with mental illness problems. They ask for a ton of expensive testing in order to give you accomidations. People are imature and it's hard to make friends if you aren't super social. Pretty much no party scene, pretty damn boring. Professors don't seem to care much, at least for the required classes.
