Alumni Spotlights and Testimonials

Elimay Robinson, BSW
Class of 2014

“I had a choice; I was accepted into two universities to pursue my BSW degree and I choose Barry University. If I had it to do all over again I would change nothing. I have excelled above and beyond at Barry University, thanks to some very dedicated and “real” professionals that have dedicated their time to preparing the next generation of competent social workers. I was ushered under some very strong wings. Wings under which I was nurtured and protected from the first day I came on campus to sign up for the BSW program. I was further guided and directed in ways I never thought was possible. Barry University School of Social is a beacon for all who wish to be guided, and understand that- inclusion anywhere leads to exclusion somewhere. At Barry University School of Social Work no one is included - everyone belongs.”

Wendy Saravia, BSW ‘14

Social Work Faculty & Staff never made me feel like just a number. They are truly supportive of you during your journey as an undergraduate student. Thanks to them, I feel well prepared to not only accelerate in my master’s degree program but in my future career as a social worker. I'm forever appreciative for all their support. I could not be happier in the decision that I made to attend such a remarkable university and become a part of the School of Social Work Family.”

“Attending Barry University and being part of the School of Social Work has completely changed my life. I came into this program looking for a bachelor’s degree, and what I got in return was and is absolutely amazing. I gained a family and forever friendships. I will be forever grateful to Barry University School of Social Work faculty and staff for giving me the most amazing undergraduate experience. This program prepared me in unimaginable way and has opened up so many doors for me. I am proud to be a Barry University Alumni.”

“Barry’s School of Social Work provides every opportunity for a student to succeed. During my tenure at Barry, I have been able to conduct research with professors, present at conferences, intern at the Public Defender’s Office, attend protests, travel to the state capitol to lobby to senators and congressmen, and even publish some writing. None of this would be possible if not for the incredible support within the school. Professors treat the students as peers and mentorship is everywhere. There is a sense of community interwoven into the very fabric of the school and in this community opportunities are endless. I am eternally grateful for those who have provided these opportunities and always appreciative of the home I found at Barry University.”
