Campus Events & Programming

While academics will be a major focus of your college career, the Office of Student Life at 51ֿ believes that a complete college education requires involvement in activities, events, and programs outside the classroom. Therefore, the department plays a major role in the social and educational programming throughout the campus.

Why be a Greek at 51ֿ

Greek life is an important part of the co-curricular experience of the students at 51ֿ. Students who are involved outside the classroom do better academically, report a more satisfying educational experience, and persist to graduation in greater numbers than their counterparts who choose not to become involved.

It is built upon a commitment to the ritualistic values of their organizations, a commitment to service an understanding of their responsibility for being a contributing member of the community, and to the personal and professional development of members.

Fraternity/Sorority Life here at Barry founded is upon principles of social justice, high social standards, leadership, academic excellence, and sisterhood/brotherhood. More than just social groups, fraternities and sororities are values-based organizations that seek to develop better men and women.

Campus Recreation

The Office of Student Life and Recreation is committed to the mission of 51ֿ and the Division of Mission and Student Engagement.

When afforded these opportunities for learning and growing, students will graduate from the institution with a better understanding of themselves and their peers, as it relates to their organizations, chosen professions, and responsibilities as part of a larger community.

The Office of Student Life encompasses student organizations, leadership development, campus events and programs, club and organization governance, Intramurals and Club sports, various health and wellness initiatives, Greek life, Commuter Student Resources and Bucky the Mascot. The staff, through the implementation of student development theories in a variety of instructional settings, assists students in developing environments which enhance diversity, promote ethical and moral development, encourage civic engagement, promote the establishment of meaningful interpersonal relationships, and provide leadership and experiential learning opportunities.
