About Us


My name is Kevin Barry, founder of Best Practices To Graduate. In college, I graduated after five and a half years with a 2.0 grade point average.

How did my academic story end?  I went on to Graduate school, earned my degree with a 3.73 GPA, and was selected for membership in Beta Gamma Sigma, the honor society for collegiate schools of business. My hope for you is that you take to heart these five best practices so you can earn your degree and realize your dreams.
