Life in South Florida

Opportunities for practical experience: You can be assured that Barry's South Florida locations offer you excellent opportunities for obtaining the knowledge, skills, and practical experiences that will allow you to minister in a variety of settings. In fact, there is probably no better place for networking, and there is no better place for establishing relationships with ministries in the Caribbean and Latin America.

International Community: South Florida’s diversity, with both residents and visitors drawn from around the world, invites professional exchange of ideas and creative solutions. This diversity also allows you to work with colleagues and student populations from a variety of countries, cultures, socio-economic groups, and religious backgrounds, giving you potential to develop a depth of understanding you cannot not find elsewhere.

Recreation: You may not have much time to relax; still, if you can squeeze in a couple of hours for fun, what better place to be than South Florida? Barry's Miami Shores Campus is twenty minutes from the shore; about the same amount of time will take you to South Beach, with SoBe style, museums, dining, cultural events, and clubs. Fort Lauderdale’s Las Olas and Riverside are both excellent for shopping or dining. Plays, headline musical performances, Opera, and Art are integral to South Florida life. In addition, major sporting events are also just a short drive away from our main campus.
