Barrytown students: The Transition to UB
- Robin Graham, UTS Advancement and Communications
Barrytown College of UTS, an undergraduate program of UTS was suspended in May 2015 due to a variety of financial and institutional issues, including the failure of the program to get approval from the US Department of Education to obtain federal financial aid for the undergraduate students. In October 2015, Dr. Thomas Ward (UTS’81), Dean of the College of Public and International Affairs at the University of Bridgeport (UB), asked Alban Gaval to make a short documentary on the status of the former Barrytown College students, as a way to tell their stories about their transition to UB.
Video: Several students explain their experience in transferring to the University of Bridgeport and how they have felt before and after the transition.
This video was an independent student project that Alban did at the university, and gives an insight into how the Barrytown students are doing in Bridgeport, CT.
