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 to the computer lab, the strength and conditioning room, or the dining hall.

Center for Student Involvement: While academics will be a major focus of your college career, the Center for Student Involvement at Barry University believes that a complete college education requires involvement in activities, events, and programs outside the classroom. Therefore, the center plays a major role in the social and educational programming throughout the campus.

Orientation and First-Year Programs: If you are a new undergraduate student, you will find the information, advocacy and programming provided by Barry's Orientation and First-Year Programs to be invaluable.

Commuter Students: If you commute, the Office of Commuter Student Affairs will serve as a resource center, providing services, sponsoring programs, and informing you of different opportunities for involvement and growth. Barry has recently expanded Commuter Student Parking; now finding that all important parking space is an accomplishable task.

International and Multicultural Programs: If you are an international student, staff members in the Office of International and Multicultural Programs 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: 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.

Accessibility Services: If you have a documented physical, psychological, visual, speech, hearing, and learning disability, Barry's Office of Accessibility 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.

Center for Counseling and Psychological Services: Counselors are available to discuss with you any issues that are affecting your life at Barry. Psychiatrists are also available to help with any medication needs. All sessions are conducted in an atmosphere of respect and confidentiality.

Career Services: From choosing your major, to finding an internship, writing a resume, or developing interview skills, Career Services is here to assist you through individual appointments and events to meet your career development goals.
