The Barry University Student Alumni Association (BUSAA) is designed to further enhance the affinity relationship between Barry University and its future graduates, by instilling a sense of pride and community amongst the current student body and constituency of Alumni.

Members will act as advocates for the University where they will continually work to promote and live out its mission on campus and in the community.

In return, BUSAA members will be aided in their quest for professional knowledge, networking opportunities, and personal development along their path to graduation.
