New Student Investiture
As part of the First-Year Experience, the New Student Investiture is the official welcoming ceremony for new students to Barry University. Held right after the fall orientation, the New Student Investiture is an interfaith ceremony that highlights the religious dimension of Barry University and commemorates the opening chapter of college life for the entering students.
During the ceremony, the University president, Sister Linda Bevilacqua, OP, PhD, will present to you a pin that represents your commitment to the University as well as our commitment to your success. This ceremony is mandatory for all new students as it is an important and traditional step when coming to Barry University.
