I haven’t been able to attend yet, I’m still deciding which university to attend but I will say the amount of help and advice they’ve offered me has been very beneficial. The Barry University members have answered my questions, provided me financial aid, and aided me in my journey in becoming a freshman in college, hopefully theirs!

I'm a sophomore at Barry University and so far my experience has been alright. On the acedemic side of Barry it is very good. Plenty of help from professors and staff. The only negative thing about Barry is probably the food and housing. The food is average for how much you pay and it's mostly always the same thing. Housing is decent, just either always very cold or hot and musty. We can't control the temperature. Hope this helps with your college search!
I am a incoming freshman, therefore I have not had an actual living experience at Barry University. I did find it to be very personal and inviting which I why I choose the school. Not to mention they did give me an academic scholarship money which really helps. I am applying for other fund to cover the balance which the scholarship does not. The Enroll Department has been very helpful and attentive in any of our questions and concerns. We have been to visit twice, which has given me some insight into the resources surrounding the school and Miami area.
