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 love the small classrooms and the professors are so knowledgeable, experienced, competent, patient, hard working, and understanding. They provide office hours and excellent real world experiences from their cast experiences. What a great way to broaden your networking and diverse culture with sound Christisn values is priceless!
Barry University has allowed me to open up to others on campus whether it is to classmates, teachers, or advisors. The people here are very supportive and caring which is why I now have a large group of friends who have my back. It can get very stressful as a college student. However there are many things here on campus that can relieve the stress like lounging areas or the pool where you can sit and relax. The teachers here care a lot about their students making sure there is a connection. I never had that in high school. There are a lot of pros about Barry but also cons. Many students complain about the food on campus. It is not horrible but many people believe it can be better. I believe that I am just so used to having home cooked meals which is why it is not the same. However I am grateful for what I have. The security here is also not as attentive as they should be. Overall, I have had a good time here even though I have noticed both pros and cons about Barry.
