Barry was among the nation’s best colleges and universities for student return on investment (ROI) by two major collegiate rankings: Forbes’ annual list of America’s Top Colleges and AffordableCollegesOnline.org (AC Online). The Forbes list places great importance on ROI: What are students getting out of college? The categories include student satisfaction, post-graduate success, student debt, graduation rates, and nationally competitive awards. In AC Online, Barry ranked No. 4 among the “Highest ROI Colleges in Florida,” and No. 23 among the “Top 36 Most Affordable Roman Catholic Colleges with High Starting Salaries for Graduates.” Barry ranked higher than all the public schools in the state with the exception of the University of Florida.
