    Having lived in California for the entirety of my life before coming here, I surprisingly enjoy the east coast. However, Becker, and Worcester in general, do not have a lot to do in the social spectrum so it has been hard to transition from a big city to a smaller town. There are definitely activities to occupy your time (sports, clubs, etc.), but I wish the school was closer to Boston.

    I love being here. The Leicester campus is beautiful and quiet it is where most of the sports teams are. The Worcester campus is louder more city like and you get to live in houses because it is in the middle of the neighborhood where it is located. This is a very nice college and it has all the majors that I wanted to go into. So that is a plus because there aren't many colleges that have both the vet tech program and the equestrian studies program.

    I love the cosy feeling and the people here. Playing sports is also a plus getting to meet so many more people and really becoming a family.

    The people are generally friendly, but there isn't a whole lot to do throughout the college. The city of Worcester isn't cheap so it is difficult to find entertainment at times.

    I am enjoying being here. It takes a little bit of getting used to, but with all the help and activities there is always something to do and someone to talk to.
