Barry 101 helps you finalize all the necessary requirements well before you arrive in the fall, giving you peace of mind.

You will enjoy team building activities, workshops, and information sessions all designed to enhance your experience at Barry. Before you know it, you will have all the information you need to Live a Barry Life!
