3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is not a massive amount of school spirit, and the fan base is not large.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The teams do well ranking wise, but students in general do not attend sporting events except for homecoming week

3 College Freshman

College Sophomore

Athletics: I never really paid attention to the sports atmosphere

1 College Junior

Athletics: No one pays attention and mostly sport teams go to each other games because they get points for their team to when things for their team at the end of the year.

Barry University is gaining quite a reputation for its athletics, and so far, Barry has won national championships in golf, volleyball, and women's soccer. In addition to these sports, the University offers plenty of other varsity sports, including baseball, basketball, rowing, softball, and tennis. At every home game, whether it’s soccer or basketball, the Barry community is very supportive. Going to the games is a great way to interact with other students on campus.

For students just interested in having a good time, Barry also offers intramural sports, including dodgeball, four-on-four flag football, kickball, soccer, and softball, among others. The intramural teams are alive and well on campus and provide a healthy, interactive, and challenging activity for the student body. One thing many wish Barry would add is a football team. Many students say they feel having a football team would grow the student body enormously and give Barry a huge name.

School Spirit
Many students on campus have school spirit, but many don't, as well. A lot of students go to basketball, soccer, and flag football games, but that's about it. You will rarely find a lot of students going to the golf tournaments or baseball games. However, during Greek Week, more than 60 students showed up to a baseball game, which never happens! Overall, more school spirit is definitely needed at Barry.
