Barry is great butQuite BrightCriminal
Barry is great but would be nice if there was more things to do on campus that didnt just happen for one week of the month. The food at times leaves much to be desired and there isn't enough pass to just relax with friends.

I took the Bachelors of Science in InformationSuper BrilliantComputer Science
I took the Bachelors of Science in Information Technology, specifically, the Computer Science degree with a specialization in Software Engineering.

I entered into the program with over a decade of software development experience. I expected to be able to coast through, but it was not that easy. Ultimately, I graduated with a 3.948 GPA. I really had to work hard at this. I decided to go into the program with humility despite my background, and I really learned a solid foundation which I believe that I had lacked previously. The assignments for most of my teachers were NOT busy-work, for the most part; however, I was expected to produce a written paper for each class. This is normal for this level of education. My Capstone project (IE: the final paper for my final class) was a 132 page paper with group presentation.I received an excellent education from Barry, and I would do it again. The staff was extremely well organized, which was the reason I went there in the first place.

Academic wise Barry is Good, but if you'reBrightEducation
Academic wise Barry is Good, but if you're looking for a true college experience Barry is not the school. This school is kind of close minded when it comes to certain things even though part of the "Barry Life" is to be open to new experiences and people. I believe that if academics alone is said not the only thing that will get you into a good school a good school like Barry shouldn't be open to academics alone.
