Barton College Reviews
I just started my Freshman year in August 2019. So far, I've really enjoyed it although, some of the teachers aren't that cooperative when you really need it. The campus is great - it's small, but not too small, and very visually pleasing. The location also isn't too far from Raleigh or Greenville, as it's right in the middle almost so you can go to the cities on the weekends!
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!
My experince at Barton has been one like no other. Since the day I visited Barton to, the day I accepted their offer to attend the school. Barton is one of the view smaller colleges that I looked into. Barton makes sure all of their student are taken care of the best of their abilities, no matter how small or how big the issue may be. One of the things I love about baton is their classroom sizes. This gives student a perfect time to have a good relationship with your professors , rather than just being another name and face. Another thing I love about the campus is how small it is. Everything is spaced out just enough to still being able to interact with the everyone attending. Barton is my mom away from, and I wouldn't want to trade this school for anything else. I hope I can raise enough money to continue my education here .
