Whether it's a Saturday morning at the local Habitat for Humanity or spring break on a school farm in Jamaica, Becker College students love to serve others. In fact, they perform over 80,000 hours of community service annually. But it's not the number of hours put in that we value most—it's the enriched sense of culture and heightened global perspective that our students gain that make our Service Learning Trips a key component of our emphasis on global citizenship.
By now, you probably know that global citizenship is at the core of everything we do here. We strive to provide our students with the academic, social, and creative experiences they need to grow into global leaders. For that reason, we keep our list of campus activities and events long and diverse, so there's something for everyone. See for yourself.
