What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure that the student has an idea of what is expected of them in school. Make sure that they are not lead on false pretenses that school is so hard and scary that if they don't constantly work hard they will never get anywhere in life. Students must know how to be responsible and know that their life is in their hands when they get to school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Finding the right college is not an easy task. In order to make the best decision possible for yourself or your children, you must first ask yourself,or them, a few basic questions. First I would ask,"what kind of degree are you seeking?", this will narrow schools down depending on how good they are in directing you to the best path for your future. For example, I applied to many schools and got into about 70% of them, but in the end I chose Barry University because its business program is very honorable compared to the other choices, and i am a business major. Next, I would ask, " Are you more of a social person, or an independant person?" This will help dramatically narrow choices because a lot of big, social schools especially ones that have prominent greek life tend to outcast students who are not as active on campus as they are. Barry university has greek life, but a majority of the students are just average students. If your a social outgoing person, a bigger school may be better, If not , then a smaller school. In the end figuring out what kind of person you are will help.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

This school is not made for someone looking to join a fraternity or sorrority, although they are present on campus, they constitute for a minor perentage. This is a small school so you do getthe college expierience but there are not that many people.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It is very important to visit your school choices, talk to current students who will give you unbiased information about the school you have in mind. It is important to meet potential advisors and take a look at what the curribulum will be for your major, as they may differ school to school. The location and diversity of the campus will be important, since most students do not want to be far from home. The student should network to meet people that will start at the various school(s) around the same time, so that the transition will be easier. Also, making the most out of the resources available to you at the school of your choice will make this exciting time continue to remain that way.

The best thing about attending Barry, is the diversity of the students and faculty that we have on campus. Students will never feel left out because we all have that one group that we can go to, no matter what type it is.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The one down fall to attending this school is that we have such a huge transfer rate, that to come here you must be fully dedicated and willing to strive hard for what you want.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

when deciding what college to choose i t hink it is really important to have in mind the majors and careers they offer. how long to complete it, the credits, courses and the degree you would obtain after you are done with the programs. research the academic credentials, any internship opportunities, and specializations. also it is really important the location. if you do not like cold weather then you should probably attend a college in warm cities or where it does not snow. in addition, if you want to stay close to your family and friends then go to a college not to far away from your family and know if they offer on- campus housing. Also, class size, do some research about the average calss size of the college. if you are like me I prefer classes with no more than 30 students. in addition, know if the college you plan to attend have any financial aid, scholarship, grants, or work- study. if you play any sport find out if they give scholarships and grants for playing sports. finally visit the college this way you can decide if you like it or not and obtain more information.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

the food. there is no variety, is too expensive and doesn't taste good.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

i think everyone should be allow to attend the school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I really think that the best advide in your first year of your studies is to find a balence. Balence between academics, activities, and a social life will really help you get the most out of your expirence. In picking which school is right for every individual the best thing to do is the expirence the campus. Sit in on a lecture, look through all the courses, talk to current students and most important walk around the campus and see if it feels right. Listen to your gut, and you will know what school is right for you. However, the worse thing you could do is pick a school based around other people's wants, needs, and opinions.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This school is for traditional and a large amount of non-traditional students looking to go into service oriented professions.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag mostly about the advance nursing program that I am in.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Finding the right college is important, but sometimes unexpected. I had a lot of ideas about what school I wanted to go to and where that was, but things changed at the last minute and I ended up at a school that I feel completely at home at. I've made great friends and have had great experiences at Barry and I really am compltetly content with my decision. Education is so important, so my advice is this; Don't pick a school based on a social scene. Instead, find a school with a program that you're passionate about. There is no point in spending all of this money on going to school, to party and your education is worthless if you're not passionate about what it is you're studying. You'll make friends and find things to do anywhere you go, so pick a school where you'll get an education thats right for you.

What's unique about your campus?

You find people who are interested in the same things you are, people who can exercise your mind. You meet great friends here, on and off campus. Barry is also a very comfortable place, the professors are wonderful, they're relaxed and they will work with you if needed. This school is pretty laid back, at least, the parts of it i've seen. I've learned a lot here and I wouldn't change my experiences for anything.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

It's hard to say, everyone is different . I don't find too much wrong with Barry, I enjoy the campus and the professors and the quality of education I recieve here. I would say that the only thing i've complained about is getting my information, like for Financial aid. You just have to push to get what you want but you DO get it, evenutally.
