Becker College Reviews
I am a freshman, but I've been on campus a few times these past months. The professors are incredibly helpful with helping me adjust seeing that I'm not from here or the area. They have a wide variety of foods, all heathey and delicious. They even have options for vegans and vegetarians which is great because nobody likes eating plain salad everyday! The dorms are comfortable and it seems like everyone here is super open minded. I have yet to meet someone who discriminates against me or my equals.
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!
Becker College is a place that has helped me find out who I am as a person. I have gained connections and have been exposed to situations that I would have never thought I'd be a part of before. Not only has it provided me with lifelong friendships, it has provided me an unwavering level of support that has allowed me to take chances, try new things and become the man that I am today. I most certainly not be where I am at today without the help of Becker College.
