Alumni Spotlights and Testimonials
I had a choice; I was accepted into two universities to pursue my BSW degree, and I chose Barry University. If I had to do it all over again, I would change nothing. I have excelled above and beyond at Barry University, thanks to some very ‘real' professionals who have dedicated their time to preparing the next generation of competent social workers. I was ushered under some very strong wings — wings under which I was nurtured and protected from the first day I came on campus to sign up for the BSW program. I was further guided and directed in ways I never thought possible. Barry University School of Social Work is a beacon for all who wish to be guided. At Barry University School of Social Work, no one is excluded - everyone belongs."

The Social Work faculty and staff never made me feel like just a number. They are truly supportive of you during your journey as an undergraduate student. Thanks to them, I feel well prepared to not only accelerate in my master's degree program, but in my future career as a social worker. I'm forever appreciative for all their support. I could not be happier in the decision that I made to attend such a remarkable university and become a part of the School of Social Work family."

Barry's School of Social Work provides every opportunity for a student to succeed. During my tenure at Barry, I have been able to conduct research with professors, present at conferences, intern at the Public Defender's Office, attend protests, travel to the State Capitol to lobby in front of senators and congressmen, and even publish some writing. None of this would be possible if not for the incredible support within the school. Professors treat the students as peers and mentorship is everywhere. There is a sense of community interwoven into the very fabric of the school and in this community opportunities are endless. I am eternally grateful for those who have provided these opportunities and I will always be appreciative of the home I found at Barry University."
