Barton College Reviews
Barton is a small college, and it makes a world of difference. I came from a small town school where all my teachers knew my name, so I wanted that in higher education as well. I didn't want to be just another number, name, or face in a crowd. Here at Barton, I am a person. Our former Dean of Students knew every single student by name, and he made each of us feel like we were his family. Something we say at Barton is " You always have a place at our table." This reigns true because the Barton Community really is a family. All of my professors make it a point to know my name. They care if I miss class, and they are willing to go the extra mile to help me succeed in life. The student resources are also incredible. From peer tutors to career services, our office of Student Success is one of the best!
The Barton Community can be summed up into one word, family. The professors and the staff are the most caring and genuine people I have ever met. They helped me adapt to the North Carolina way of life after transferring from my prior university in West Virginia. The campus is very diverse having students come from Canada, Spain, Serbia, and even Australia. All the diversity found on campus makes learning in the classroom a one of a kind experience. The education I am receiving at Barton has really put me in a great spot to succeed. I have learned communication and people skills I couldn't have found any where else but Barton College. Barton will forever have a lasting impact on my life and I cannot wait to see what's in store for me these next few years.
I love Barton for both its' focus on academics and student support. When I first went on a tour of the campus, I was blown away with how informative and helpful both our guides and orientation leaders were. I knew I wanted to attend this college from the moment I stepped foot on campus. The staff is extremely helpful and want each and every student to succeed. The Financial Aid office was very cooperative in helping with my needs and very thorough in explaining how loans and grants work, and how they will help me in the long run. Overall, I look forward to attending Barton in both the fall and spring semester(s) and can't wait to graduate in two years.
