What I like about Barry University, is that they are very hands on with us and the major that we choose. They let us get the feel of what we are getting ourselves into when we graduate. They prepare you mentally and physically. My major is athletic training, and we have to participate in games and also spend time in the training room. Some times this can be all day and night but I enjoy it. If there was something I had to change about my Barry, I will keep it the same but change myself more to make Barry even more better! Barry is all about the students and that's what stands it out from other universities.

Attending Barry University has been am experience in itself. My favorite times on campus are always at the pool parties that the art cool throws, or even attending club meetings and meeting new people and discovering new ideas. Also, being ranked top ten schools for diversity, you get to engage in different cultures and ways of living. I live for new opportunity, and I truly feel that my school provides that for me. I think I made a great choice of school!

The best options of dorming, must be the upper class man buildings such as Dominican, Benni, and Kolasa, but they are only for sophomores, juniors and seniors. The worse has to be Holly house, which is an apartment styled dorm located four blocks away from campus, but it is seriously run down mold in the bathrooms, kitchens and sometimes rooms. The showers, toilets and sinks have to be at least 30 years old, it just disgusting! Not only that but it is located in the worse part of the neighborhood, with barely any security. not safe to walk around after 7 only.
