1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: How strict they are with vistiors no matter who it may be even barry students you cannot come into the gate without a valid i.d. I have smaller family members like cousins in high school who pass by to see me but cant because they do not have a valid i.d and there school i.d isn't enough for them.

Of course, there are rules that are enforced for the safety of everyone who lives, works, or studies on campus, but compared to most private, Catholic institutions, Barry is not too strict. In terms of visitiation policies, residents in Dalton-Dunspaugh, Kolasa, Benincasa, and Weber halls must sign in their visitors. Smoking is okay on campus, but any drugs besides cigarettes will get you into a lot of trouble because Barry has a no-tolerance policy for illegal drugs—so do not bring any here. If you are underage and found with alcohol-related possessions, you may have to do community service and/or get placed on academic probation. Fighting is not acceptable at Barry, but you rarely hear about fighting here anyway.

On the academic side, students get points for class attendance, and depending on the class, you can only miss four to six days per semester. If you miss more than that, you will fail the class, regardless of the work you submit. Barry’s Public Safety, administration, and Department of Residential Life can be strict when it comes to rule violations, so do all you can to avoid trouble. Barry is a small school, and if you mess up, a lot of people will know about it.
