What I like about Barry University, is that they are very hands on with us and the major that we choose. They let us get the feel of what we are getting ourselves into when we graduate. They prepare you mentally and physically. My major is athletic training, and we have to participate in games and also spend time in the training room. Some times this can be all day and night but I enjoy it. If there was something I had to change about my Barry, I will keep it the same but change myself more to make Barry even more better! Barry is all about the students and that's what stands it out from other universities.

I just started attending Barry University and so far it's been a great experience. My guidance counselor was very helpful, the student affairs office helped me with all my questions and my professors are very knowledgeable. The athletics department, specifically the baseball team is top notch. Student life and activities are good, and the campus food is excellent.
I am currently a junior in High School and I haven't had the chance to review Barry University yet, but ever since I was in the 8th grade Barry has been my dream college. I discovered the college when I was researching colleges and once I found Barry, I instantly fell in love with it. Prior to the research, I had already knew a bit about it because my uncle went there and graduated. He speaks so highly of it and he is thrilled that I'm looking to go there. Barry has the two majors that I want to work in, psychology and nursing, and my uncle is a nurse so what better way then to get some advice and study under him. He really influenced my interest on Barry but when I actually sat down and looked over everything myself, I knew it was the right college for me. I can't wait to visit there and attend it so I can prove to myself that dreams really do come true.
