Barry University Reviews
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!
My experience with Barry University has been an interesting one. For starters, the school is very diverse and makes you feel right at home. From the friendly faculty and staff to the workers in the coffee shop. The classroom sizes are quite small, similar to a classroom size you would see in high school. I personally think this allows a better connection with your professors and other students within the class. It is a Catholic school, meaning there may be certain religious classes such as theology that is required for everyone to take even though it has absolutely nothing to do with your major. The university is quite okay.
