For most students, summer is a time for rest and relaxation. But if you're planning a visit to the Becker College campus anytime soon, you'll see that summer is just another opportunity for our students to get ahead and have fun doing it.
On a summer campus visit at Becker, you'll see students...
...participating in the Summer Bridge Program. The Summer Bridge Program familiarizes incoming first-year students with our residence halls and campus and introduces them to all of the academic and personal support resources we have available. So, you might see students walking to and from their dorms, connecting with faculty and staff, or participating in community service (that's a big deal at Becker).
...hanging out (or interning) in Worcester. Not only do our students love Worcester for its rich culture, history, and "Restaurant Row," but many of them also find great internship opportunities in our city and in nearby Boston. On your visit, look for students who are staying in the area to complete internships, and be sure to ask them about their experiences.
...creating their own video games. Keep an eye out for students in our Mass DiGI Summer Innovation Program (SIP), who are working in teams to build everything from mobile entertainment games to educational titles, and are even preparing them for launch. Here's the icing on the cake: they're getting paid to do it. If you're wondering if you should study video games in college, look here.
...studying on campus. Whether they're making time for an interesting elective or getting ahead in their coursework, you'll see students studying and completing assignments as part of Becker's 12-week summer session. What this means for you: on your visit, you'll get the chance to talk to current students about what it's like to be a Hawk; as a student, you'll have plenty of opportunities to maximize your learning.
