Benefits and Services of the Barry University Alumni Association

Career Development Services

In conjunction with Barry University's Career Planning and Placement Office, we are proud to offer you our new Alumni Career Development Services through CareerBeam, an online service that allows you access to resume and cover letter development tools, search strategies and research databases for job opportunities.

Barry University Affinity Card Program

Now you can subscribe to the American Express REWARDS program through the Alumni Association. Just as with our MasterCard affinity program, using your Barry AMEX card helps us grow scholarships for our students. Each time you use your card, you collect REWARDS points for great gifts, air travel and hotel stays. To subscribe go to www.barry.edu/alumni.

Auto Insurance

Barry’s GEICO Auto Insurance discount program offers Barry alumni quality car insurance with complete 24-hour sales, policy, and claims service. As a Barry alumnus/a, you may also qualify for an additional member discount off GEICO's already low rates. Call GEICO today for a free rate quote at 1-800-368-2734 or visit www.geico.com/ratequote/rtqintro_buaa.htm.

Health Insurance and Life Insurance Programs

In 2008, the Barry University Alumni Association will explore a program of health insurance, dental coverage and life insurance. The program will include a discount prescription drug plan. More information on this program will be covered on our alumni Web pages (www.barry.edu/alumni) and in future editions of the Barry University Alumni E-news.

Barry License Plates for Student Scholarships

A Barry University license plate is a great way for our Florida Alumni to show their Barry pride while supporting academic excellence. Each time you purchase or renew your license plate $25 goes directly to the Barry University Endowed Scholarship Fund. For more information visit www.barry.edu/alumni.

Proposed New Alumni Chapters

More local Barry alumni chapters are in the making throughout Florida and in metro areas around the country. Chapters host many networking and social opportunities throughout the year. To find out about alumni chapters near you, contact the Barry University Alumni Relations Office.
