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.
Take [you] out to the ball game. Red Sox fan? Or maybe just a fan of networking with fellow Becker graduates? We plan annual trips for students and alumni to cheer on the Red Sox for a night at Boston's Fenway Park.
Hear from the author. On March 31, award-winning author, Vladimir Pistalo, read excerpts from his latest novel, A Portrait with Masks. Oh, did we mention he's also one of our Liberal Arts professors? Following the reading, he led a discussion on Tesla, writing, philosophy, and curiosity. (At Becker, students support their professors' work, too.)
Fun in the sun. On April 25, students will celebrate the end of the year at our annual HawkFest. There will be inflatables, airbrush tattoos, awesome giveaways, frisbee and volleyball games, and a hot BBQ buffet—all on campus! Can you think of a better way to de-stress before finals?
Video games. Seriously. Last month, Dr. Paul Cotnoir, director of design programs at Becker, and a panel of Interactive Media faculty presented "The Serious Side of Video Games" to students and to the public. Access the presentation here.
Field trip to Jamaica. Several students and two faculty members spent spring break 2015 in Petersfield, Jamaica, where they planted vegetables on a school farm, cleaned up a playground, and worked with local children. Sponsorship by Amizade gave students the chance to stay with host families and be totally immersed in the neighborhood and culture. (Interested in service work closer to home? Read about our students' experience in the Boston Urban Outreach program.)
With activities that will suit every one of your interests, all that's left to do is test your fit with a visit to our campus.
