Life at Barry

Activities, recreation, and clubs usually come to mind when we think of campus life. Campus Life is more than that. It's all the support you receive from the day you enter Barry University as a student. That could include access to faculty, research librarians, a financial aid advisor or access the computer lab, the strength and conditioning room, the dining hall. Although we can't detail all that support here, we have given you an overview of the services provided by the Student Services Division. And, yes, that does include the activities, recreation, and clubs.

Student Activities and Organizations. Choices in organized activities are numerous, including the Splash Bash Pool Party, the Fall Holiday trip to Walt Disney World, or an intramural game with the faculty-staff softball team, which jokingly calls itself "Rigor Mortis."

You can build houses with Habitat for Humanity, join the SCUBA club, engage in debates with members of the Political Science and Theology Clubs, host a show on radio WBRY, pledge a fraternity or sorority, take a salsa class, or go on a retreat. And these are just a few examples.

Intercultural Center. If you are an international student, staff members in the Intercultural Center are available to advise you in regard to immigration, academic, financial, and personal matters. A special orientation program is provided to new international students. As an international student, you will also be invited to share your culture with other Barry students through specific programming offered through the Center.

Student Health Services. Taking a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach to health, Health Center staff members work to ensure that you are quickly assisted should you sustain an injury or become ill. Equally important, staff members work to promote an optimal level of wellness for students.

Disability Services. If you have a documented physical, psychological, visual, speech, hearing, and learning disability, Barry's Office of Disability Services will provide you with information, advocacy, and academic accommodations. The Office strives to provide a holistic educational experience, which prepares each student to be united and equal with the non-disabled population.
