What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good school with small class sizes that make learning much easier. The dining options (places to go) are lacking but the food is good. The professors are understanding and there are plenty of resources to help students. There are also tons of clubs and events to participate in but no football team or marching band or color guard/ winter guard.

Well going into my second year I feel like it will be better then my first year. The students there are fun and supportive. The teachers are there to listen and also my advisor. I think Barry University is a good place for learning even if it’s a small community

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just completed my first semester at Barry University and I was very successful. The professors really do care about their students and are always there to help. The class size is very small and the campus is small so everyone knows each other and your professors know who you are. Our sports teams are very good especially our basketball teams. Overall, Barry is a great place to be especially since it is in Miami.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My initial thoughts of Barry University were very high I loved every part of it. after a few months of being here I've learned there are some things I love and some things I just don't. The campus is beautiful especially on a nice sunny day and a slight breeze- can you say study session by the pool? The people are so nice and they all come from such diverse backgrounds. which takes me to the extremely diverse food that they serve in the cafeteria. I am a foodie and all I can say is that the cafe is hit or miss but usually miss because it lacks a sense of flavor almost every day. another downfall of the university is that we do not have a football team, therefore, it takes away from the extra surge if school spirit. last but definitely not least is my favorite part of the school which is the class size. I have rarely heard of a university class where the teachers actually know the student's names and interact with them personally in and out of class. my teachers have offered me to sit with them if I'm sitting by myself at lunch and they are very big on office hours. I love my school, now are their things I would change of course but at the end of the day I'm happy here and the connections made here mean the world to me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Barry University is a great school for academics. They also hold many events to create campus unity like pool parties, movie nights and dances. This school is about 20 minutes (with traffic) from South Beach. Its right near the heart of Miami which makes it the perfect place for some sun and fun.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Barry university is a college I would recommend to new high school graduates as well as returning college students. I would also recommend this college to anyone, who want to do online courses. Attend Barry have provided me with a strong understand of ME! what I mean is that through course work help me to refocus on current issues, and real life discussion in the course work was very timely, which helps with understanding my life in 2018 and beyond.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is really small, I enjoy being there because of the atmosphere but at times I feel like the school should provide more for students. Such as, activities or events that motivate the students to get into the school a bit more. There should be a change in how the facilities run.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Keep in mind every university opens different doors for you. With great pride I say that I am currently a Pre-Law major at Barry University. To be honest Barry University was my one and only decision. The very reason why I applied to Barry University was to make my parents proud of me. I am, in fact, a legacy student. At first I must be honest I was rather hurt because I practically lost both of my grandparents who were very dear to me. I was born with an unceasing drive in whatever it is that I do. My grandfather instilled within me that whatever I do I must do my absolute best in. Getting back to the main point, I just didn't know what I wished to do after high school. All I could do was listen to my parents. Listening to my parents was, in fact, the best decision I ever made. I opened the right door to my future. I officially became part of the Barry family in 2014. Barry University has changed my life in many ways. First, there's not one day I don't get to enjoy Miami's sunny weather. I must forewarn you Miami is practically "season-less." It's a good day to go for a dip in the pool even in December. When I graduate I will never forget walking around school hearing the church's organs playing as flowers dance with the wind. In front of the chapel there are beautiful tall palm trees. The school was founded in 1940, but Barry does a good job in keeping up its facilities. Second, being smack dab in the middle of Miami permits you to venture and see the beautiful beaches, tropical paradise, and what the city has to offer. My third vital point is that going to a private Catholic school bestows you with the opportunity to be engaged in the classroom and address any concerns you have to your professor immediately. It is undoubtedly a very hands on school. In my three years at Barry University there's not a day that goes by that I don't see a familiar face. Barry has four main societies, but is affiliated with many other honor societies. Not to show off, but I currently have over eight cords to wear in graduation. The point is that you have the opportunity to truly work hard for what you want. Barry is the place that will bestow students with the ability to execute their great ambition. As cheesy as it may sound Barry is a great stepping stone to making your dreams come true. Lastly, the whole point you attend a university; to get an education. Depending upon what you wish to do Barry is for those who truly see themselves going far in life. Barry is certainly not for the faint of heart. Not that I am belittling schools in Miami, but I must say Barry has a unique way of challenging its students. At least in my department I am awfully challenged. I found myself turning in a 21 page mini thesis, 10 page (take home exam), having two extensive projects (one on gun control and one on Nietzsche), having a 9 page upper level English paper due, and another 8 page paper due in a matter of two weeks followed by the hostile finals week. That is only the long story short. A typical exam of mine requires a whole Scantron sheet plus a whole Blue Booklet (every page front and back will be written on I promise you). Barry truly pushes you for the right reasons. Each and every positive action that I execute in life shall reflect Barry University. I shall unveil to the world my Barry roots and never forget how my second home has changed me. Barry University has helped me find myself. I promise to keep the legacy of Barry University’s mission alive with everything that I do in life. I shall forever be “Barry” proud of myself and where I come from. In June 12 I will be taking the LSAT and will be applying to Stanford, UCLA, University of Miami, Fordham, New York University, FIU, and many more law schools. Because of Barry I have no fear in getting into any law school. I am prepared to face tomorrow. I am prepared to conquer my future. Make your decision wisely. If you do happen to choose Barry make the best of it and alway be "Barry" proud of yourself.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

To be honest the security at Barry is rather poor. The library is closed at midnight every day and that becomes rather unsafe. The only 24/7 building is Thompson, but it gets noisy. Also, the food is not that delicious. There are professors who are rather subjective. No institution is perfect. Every school has its flaws.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

As I said this institution is not for the faint of heat. Barry is not for someone who wishes to take the easy way out in life. You must work hard in order to get what you want here. Depending upon the department I must forewarn you exams here are not like the typical community colleges or public universities. Not belittling other excellent schools in Miami, but Barry uniquely challenges its students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Barry University is awesome! The small class sizes, accessible teachers, the helpful math and writing labs, the community involvements, and the sport events are what make Barry University an awesome place to study. The food is okay and the Greek life is not a huge thing on campus. This school is not a party school. We would have parties now and then, but not every week. But there are numerous clubs and organizations that you can be involved in. There are many opportunities for you to be involved on campus and in the community. Barry plays a huge emphasis on community involvement. That is what it is known for. The school is also known for the student diversity. I get to meet people who came from different places in the world. Also, Barry University is captivating with its beautiful palm trees and green grasses. Overall, this school is amazing.
