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.
What I like about Barton College is that it feels like home. The college is small which makes it easier to bond and build relationships with professors, students, and other people who work for the college. The main goal of the college is to make everyone feel welcomed and united so they can be successful. The only thing I would change about Barton is the food because we do not have as much variety as I would like but overall the school is great and I know I will have created lasting relationship with people I will never forget.
