Recreation, Health, and Wellness
The Department of Campus Recreation & Wellness at Barry is based on the philosophy of wholesome recreation and the right to play. By providing students, faculty, and staff with a well-rounded program, a safe environment, and a chance to challenge themselves, there is "something for everyone." Recreation at Barry encourages all constituents to become involved in an activity of their choice.
