Freshmen Experience Day

Freshmen Experience Day provides you with the opportunity to engage in common involvement activities, mission centered community service programs, and reflective workshops with other first-year students. This is a mandatory one-day program that helps you find out what it means to be a Buccaneer and to understand the meaning behind the Barry Motto: Learn, Reflect, and Serve! Participating in Freshmen Experience Day will help you in your transition into the Barry Community.
