College Brides Walk

      On February 14th, 2014, college students representing various campuses in South Florida will unite and partake in the Fourth Annual College Brides Walk here at Barry University.

      The purpose of The College Brides' Walk was developed in order to bring awareness to the problems of domestic and dating violence on and off college campuses.
