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!

Barton College was a very little and quiet college just how I wanted a college to be. Majority of the people at Barton were very friendly and seemed like very people to hang around. Academic wise I liked how the class would be very small so you can have a one on one experience with your teacher. For that was a plus because I need that one on one with my teacher and or professor to achieve my goal to get my degree. The campus is very diverse in my opinion which was weird since it wasn a private college. But I mainly went to visit Barton for a track and field visit. During that visit I felt like Barton would be the place for me in the future and the people around me would also help me achieve my goals in life. Also I wouldn't have as much free time to play around or not get work done because I would either be at practice, studying, or in class.
The campus is beautiful, academics as long as you care are good. Professors will care if you show interest and respect, and will be more than happy to help you if you have any problem. Regarding athletics, basketball and volleyball are the only good teams. Maybe Tennis, but it depends. ECS and Hackney are nice dorms. The campus is safe.

Stay away from the business office, financial aid. They will only help you when you arrive, and they literally won't care and try to cause you problems. The food is disgusting and unhealthy, so stay away from it.
