The school is very expansive for what youAverageOther
The school is very expansive for what you get. I pay about $43k a year to go here before scholarships, but I have taken more "CORE" classes then classes of my major, I have had a Programming class (which is my major) been taught by a first time programmer, the food is pretty bad in the cafeteria though they do have an extra food place (called the Hawk's Nest) where you can buy better food, but only for a limited time with given money then you pay out of pocket, the dorm rooms vary exeedingly (the Freshman halls on the Worcester campus are all renovated Victorian style houses and are fairly nice, but are freshamn only where as upper class man are often forced into the apartment style buildings with have leaking ceilings; broken window screens; a heating system that is almost always on even in summer; no cooling system along with AC units being banned, that is unless you are the Area Coordinator that lives in the building because they get a three person room all to themselves, are payed to live there without paying rent and are allowed to have AC units; and it also has a terrible mouse problem (not to mention the snake that got in today). Along with that the school advertises itself as a "Gaming College", but has WiFi that can not even hold a stable connect to a cell phone let alone a normal Laptop and they restrict the use of internet outlets so most rooms do not even have 1 working Ethernet port and you can get in trouble for playing games on school computers except for limited areas, even after hours when classes are done.

Question
Becker is what it is.AverageArt & Design Department
Becker is what it is. Some things are pretty good. Some things aren't. The faculty and staff give it a real effort. A lot of the game dev and athletics stuff is pro. But a lot of the other stuff isn't like Casl or global or tutoring. To get to the next level, lots has to get better. But, it's a like-able college anyway.

Question
This was a mistake.BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
This was a mistake. 3 weeks in and its clear Becker is not for me. Very expensive, bad facilities, worse residence halls. Maybe it will work for you but its just not for me.
