Throughout my experience at Barton College, I have learned to grow in so many ways. I transferred to Barton from a community college, and I was very nervous going into Barton. But, as soon as I got to Barton, there were many people there, a range of students, teachers, and staff, that opened their arms and treated me with such kindness. I have learned to be myself, and to be more understanding. I have grown into a very open-minded person. If I have a problem, academic or personal, I know I have so many people willing to talk to me. If I have a problem with any classroom material, the professors doors are always open. If I am having a hard day, the professors are understanding. The professors are very hands-on with learning, they do not just read material, they explain it, manipulate it, and make you understand it. The only thing I would like to see change on campus is the residence halls need to be updated, other than that, the campus is a solid 10/10.

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!
Like every other school in the country, Barton moved to online learning due to Covid-19. My professors were extremely patient, understanding, and caring during this sudden change in our lives. My professors made themselves available anytime we needed them. They would FaceTime, Zoom, E-mail, etc.. My professors made it easy to find our resources online, and were very organized with our learning and objectives.
