I love the staff and the campus. My instructors always lend a helping hand when possible. I love that Barton College has an open door policy. My peers are wonderful as well. Any question I cannot get to an instructor or administration right away, most of my upper-classed peers help me out. The home feeling I get while staying on campus is phenomenal and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else! Thank you Barton College!
Review Barton College
I enjoy the small school atmosphere. Classes aren't huge so it is easy to ask questions during class if you're not grasping a subject. Most teachers have good office hours. This is a liberal arts college who focuses on writing, so be prepared to write many papers! Staff are generally nice. I am in the nursing program and with the high number of female professors and female students, there is a bit of drama. This program is also going through many changes.
I attended Chesapeake Community college in Wye Mills, Maryland for my freshman and sophomore year of college. I am now attending Barton College in Wilson, North Carolina. I am a student- athlete, I play softball and enjoy every minute of it. What I loved most about visiting Barton College was the kind and friendly people that were there. I also enjoyed the extra help that the students, professors and other staff are willing to give you, they seem to really care about their students and their success!
