FYE Buccaneer Passport Experience Program
Your journey through Barry University begins here! The FYE Buccaneer Passport Experience Program is designed for all New Buccaneers like to you to assist you in your navigation through the first eight weeks of your college experience. This passport outlines the programs, events, and services, provided by various University Departments. Whenever you participate in an event, you will receive a “stamp” (sticker) in your passport. Those who have collected the most stamps in their passport are eligible to be a Grand Prize Winner.
There are 15 different departments or areas of programming including, Athletics, Campus Activities Board, Campus Ministry, Career Services, Cashier/Business Office, Financial Aid, Community Service Initiatives, Arts & Sciences, Commuter Student Resources, Student Involvement, Dean of Students, Fine Arts, Learning Center, Housing & Residence Life, International & Multicultural Programs, and Wellness. We recommend attending 1-2 programs in each area. When you attend the program you will be given a stamp. These events/programs will help you in your transition to college life, both inside and outside of the classroom environment.
When you attend a passport event, attendance will be taken and you will receive a passport stamp. The more programs you attend the more stamps or stickers you will acquire. The students that attend the most programs and have the most stamps will be entered in a drawing for Grand Prize Packages, which include items such as a new iPad, Kindle Fire HD, $100 in Dining Dollars, and other various gift cards and giveaways.
The more programs you attend will increase your chances of receiving give-a-ways and prizes at various passport events. Most Importantly, getting involved in the activities offered, will not only help you to make a successful transition but more importantly you will learn about who you are and discover what you are destined to do here at Barry University and beyond! Get ready to Learn, Reflect and Serve! Live the Barry Life!
