Barry University is one of the most diverse universities out there, and people from all over the world come here to study, play sports, and have a great college experience. In fact, U.S. News & World Report ranked the University’s diversity No. 1 among southern regional colleges and universities. Barry has many international students, and there are so many nationalities here. And even though this is a private, Catholic institution, in no way does the school force religion on anyone. It’s solely up to you if you want to go to the campus chapel. Each student brings his or her own religious views and beliefs, and everyone is free to express those beliefs on campus.

There are many multicultural, ethnic, spiritual, and political clubs to join, and many interesting people to meet. And being that the school is so diverse, everyone accepts one others’ differences, backgrounds, and beliefs, so there is no discrimination whatsoever. If you are prejudice or racist, Barry is definitely not the place for you. However, if you love diversity, crave community, and desire new friendships and experiences, Barry offers all three and more!
