Becker gaming Tournaments was a founded in an attempt to unite the more competitive members of our college community on a battlefield we could call our own. We aimed to create a simple resource for students to access, create, and manage tournaments of their favorite competitive video games. Through this club, we also hope to raise exposure for the many talented gamers that have enrolled here at Becker College. We want to provide an environment for players to come together and enjoy doing something they love, be it in a competitive environment or simply showing up for some casual games. We wish to cater to all of those who want to introduce their favorite games to people. For those who have embraced the competitive life, the Gaming Tournaments Club also serves as a resource to locate tournaments in other areas, be it Massachusetts, or anywhere else in New England, and send them out to represent Becker College.

Becker IDGA hosts events to bring in speakers who have worked in the field to talk to students about their experience in the industry. We also run events that promote the idea of developing games as an extracurricular activity as an official chapter of the International Game Developers Association.

A large part of this is education awareness to the public and often involves cooperation with other marine organizations such as the New England Aquarium.

Student Governance Advisory Board
It shall be the duty of the Becker College Student Governance Advisory Board to serve as the voice and represent the overall student community of the College. The Board will represent student interests, promote unification between the two campuses, increase student engagement and participation in policy-related conversations, foster understanding of the Becker core values, enhance communication channels between students, faculty and administrators, oversee the Recognized Student Organizations (RSO’s) including budget and active status processes, and promote the general welfare of the undergraduate student body.
The purpose of the BTGC is to make an easy way for tabletop gamers of all skill levels to connect and set up games, either with their own group or with new people. The club will focus on two aspects: Longer term tabletop RPGs such as Dungeons and Dragons that would require weekly commitment, and simpler tabletop games that can be set up and played in one night on a whim. People will be able to sign up for whatever roles they desire, whether they want to participate in a game or try running one themselves. Our goals are to get as many people on the campus who enjoy or are interested in tabletop games signed up for the club. The more people that are signed up, the more people can be reached for games and events by other members. One does not need to participate in both aspects to enjoy the club; they can participate in only the longer running campaigns or just the single night events as they so please. We want to create a network of gamers across the school to bring the community together more. Currently, the Becker tabletop communities consist of several isolated groups who mostly interact within themselves and do not reach out to others. By forming a unified club, we hope to encourage collaboration between the groups and to create a unified Becker tabletop community.
The Ultimate Frisbee Club’s goal is to educate new people in the amazing sport that is Ultimate Frisbee. We gather all players, both new and old, teaching each other new tricks and ways to play the game and at the end of the day, to have fun. We have multiple practices per week, and either scrimmage or just play small games making sure everyone is included and having a good time. On top of that we try our best to schedule games against rivaling colleges and have the pure intent of having a good time over winning. Win or lose it’s always a good time, and everyone will always get playing time no matter the situation!
United Christian Fellowship
