We are excited that you are here, and we want you to know that we are here to help you reach your educational goals. During this self-paced orientation, you will explore the history and legacy of Barry University as well as our expectations of you as a student and scholar. In addition, you will learn how to best use Canvas, our online learning platform, as well as how to communicate with your professors, submit assignments, check your grades, and participate in class.
At the completion of your orientation, you’ll demonstrate your readiness to use Canvas and learn how to get help when you need it. Let’s get started by viewing a short video introduction by Barry University’s Provost, Dr. John D. Murray.
