Department of Physical Sciences Alumni: Where Are They Now?

Because of the small student to teacher ratio, students at Barry feel that students have more individual attention from both faculty and staff. Chemistry alumni often keep in touch with various members of the department and often find time to visit their old alma mater.

The success of the chemistry program offered at Barry is measured by our chemistry graduates acceptance into graduate (40%) and professional (30%) schools as well as attainment of employment in their field (20%) or other (10%).
