Like the greek life scene. Food is okay, residence halls are subpar especially for the price compared to state schools or similarly priced private schools in the are (Elon, HPU). Student life is very active despite the small campus, and the surrounding areas of wilson, nc are completely boring.
Barton is a nice homey campus and the people here are fun to be around. The professors are understanding and tend to accompany most of your needs.
Barton College has provided me with many ample opportunities to not only express myself through academics but also leadership and even Greek Life. Through academics it has provided a challenging, rewarding experience that truly prepares you for career path that you wish to take. Through my Presidential Leadership Fellows Program it has given me the leadership skills to know that I not only have a place on campus but also a voice in my community. Greek Life has also given me another avenue of expression of myself on campus only adding to the delightful place that I call my second home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?
It is a great campus and the faculty is amazing and very friendly. The people on campus, staff and peers, are always there to help and want to be there. Learning is a priority and the sports program is amazing. They make sure that you will get along with your roommate and that you get into one of the dorms that you wanted to be in.
When i went to Barton College, I was on a visit for incoming freshman. I loved every bit of the tour, the guides answered all of the questions I had before touring, not making me part my lips once. It was very informative. The campus is small, but it doesn't feel small because all of the students know each other and the professors seem to care.
Barton has a close community of faculty and students that makes the environment a great one. This is one of the reasons that I enjoy attending Barton.
Community aspect was amazing. Everyone is involved in everything campus wide. Very very friendly also felt like home
They really care about the students. The professors go above and beyond to ensure the students understand what we are learning. The school has many resources to help with the students that live on campus and those that live off campus.
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!
I come from out of state, at Barton they really make it feel like home here. It's amazing! Everyone here is so sweet and welcoming. The professors do actually want to help you. 10/10 recommend.
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.
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.
My experience at Barton was very family orientated. I came as a transfer student and enrolled in the Social Work program. My advisor and instructors were very hands on in making sure i had everything i needed to be successful with my academics. I currently hold a 4.0 GPA & look forward to returning in the Fall of 2018. Barton College has been a great experience in preparing me for my career as a Social Worker & giving back to the community.
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.
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.
Still a sophomore at the school. It's a small school, but the amount of 1 on 1 attention you receive from your professors makes it worth while. There is always something to do, you just have to be creative sometimes.
Has good programs and campus. The buildings and dorms are a little old but everything works perfectly. Campus recently got upgraded electronic locks, and class rooms are equipped adequate technology. Parking is always easy to find, along with being free. Surrounding community has great restaurants and shops.

This college has a wonderful program for adults who are looking to go back to school. It has night, weekend, and online classes that are eight weeks long that fits perfectly into a working adults schedule.
Terrible looking school. They get paid so much and the school still looks run down. They do not use their money wisely. Highly dissatisfied. Even the nursing program is ran poorly.
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.
