Barry made a splash at the annual National Catholic Youth Conference in November. Held at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium, the three-day conference welcomed more than 22,000 high school students, youth advisors, and chaperones from all over the nation – some even from as far as Alaska and Hawaii – for workshops, prayer, retreats, and an expo. Barry hosted two lively expo booths, complete with beach balls, a lifeguard station, serene photos of the ocean, a large brain, a huge canvas for students to graffiti, and Bucky (who made numerous appearances throughout the conference and caused a social media frenzy). Barry also sponsored the conference café. The university’s goal was to increase awareness for its mission, history, location, and Catholic identity to engaged students who are actively looking at colleges – and if feedback is any indication, the conference was a huge success for Barry!
