Barton College is a great private school that helps each individual succeed throughout his/her educational career. It has great teachers and hands on activities.
Tips for prospective students
Always do your work and make sure it's turned in on time. Pay attention to class and for any reason if you have questions, ask the teacher after class. And if you need help, ask for a tutor to help you in your home work or basic information.
Academic Rigor
Most of my classes we have a lot of hands on activities and one on one time with the teacher to get a better understanding about the lesson she/he just lectured.
Food and Dining
Food is great. It taste good and it's healthy. I try not to eat pizza everyday because i know Irma get tired of it.
What to do for fun
Most of the time after classes I usually hang out with friends and talk about any plans over the weekend. Also, I just have a conversation with the teacher and try to get to know her/him.
Campus Safety
Everyday in school there are numerous amount of security officers checking the campus and making sure everything is ok. Also, there are a lot of police officers driving around the campus checking to see if anything strange is occurring around campus.

The professors are always willing to help you if you have any questions about anything and the programs here are highly admired.
Dorm Life
The dorm life is also great here. They always keep the dorms looking nice and they keep students in line by having Resident Assistances around. If you have any kind of problem with people being loud or drinking or anything, all you have to do is report it to a Resident Assistance and they will take care of the problem. You dont have to worry about a thing!
Food and Dining
The food here is really good. They provide a nice variety of foods every day. The dining area is great for socialization as well. It is a big wide open space right on top of the student center. Once you are done eating, you can take the elevator down to enjoy some games of pool or ping pong or just relax and watch some television.

Campus Safety
The campus safety is good for the most part. I haven't seen any problems with it so far. Barton College is located in the best part of town, but they do hold meetings that remind students of the dangers they could be faced with at any college. We do have campus police officers walking around at all times. These officers also serve as escorts if you need one. The school provides a card with the emergency numbers on it and there are emergency call boxes all over campus.

Barton has very small class sizes which allows each person to get personal attention. The professors are available majority of the time. There are also resources on campus such as the writing center, tutors, and every building has its own computer lab which every student has access to.
Am enjoying being here
There are always events going on around or off campus. The environment is small so it gives everyone an opportunity to know each other by name. The campus offers trips to the beach, zoo, aquariums, and much more. Everyone seem to be pretty friendly. If a random person was to walk on campus you would know if they are a student or staff member at Barton. The campus police are always on duty and they even will escort you late at night. The school also has talent shows, plays, and overall is famous for its sporting events especially basketball!
Bang for the buck
Barton tries to give everyone an opportunity. If they can't afford to attend Barton they provide good financial aid. Overall it's a great school and the money spent is worth it. Also students can bring their vehicles their 1st year for a very affordable price compared to parking on other campuses. The professors also care and majority of them have plenty of experience and they know every student name.
Tips for prospective students
Turn in all assignments on time and make good grades. The better your GPA the more scholarships and grants that a student may qualify for. Don't be afraid to visit the campus, attend some campus events, and talk to students currently enrolled at Barton.
Great for these types of students

The professors here at Barton are amazing! The class sizes are smaller, which gives you a one on one class experience with the teachers. It is very easy to ask for help and the professors have wonderful teaching techniques. Many students say that they are doing better in certain subjects than when they were in high school.
Am enjoying being here
Barton is a small community that has many places with in walking distance. Also, Barton has many student activities, such as free movies, games, festivals, and competitions.
Bang for the buck
The experience that you have in the classroom and with people is worth the money. Students are able to learn a lot in a classes of 20 students, some even smaller. You feel more like a person and not a number at this school. Professors and advisors actually work with you and are genuinely interested in helping.
Tips for prospective students
Prospective students should always look into the school more by visiting. Just a simple visit can determine how comfortable you are at the school and whether or not you like it.

The Barton College core classes are a solid group of classes that all students must take before most of the major specific classes. The core classes take a student out of their major and broaden thinking and learning. They teach a lot of information that will surprisingly help with major specific classes.
Am enjoying being here
Barton College is a fun little place in walking distance to downtown Wilson, NC. Wilson is a growing community with new stores and places to eat popping up frequently. As for on campus, there is always something interesting happening, ranging from free movies to pudding slides to worship services.

With small class sizes and wonderful teachers who are actually willing to sit down with you when you need help and who knows you by name and not a number Barton College is an amazing place that I have come to enjoy. With such a small campus it is easy to get from one side of the campus to the other in ten minutes or less while seeing people you actually know on the way.
Am enjoying being here
Once I came to Barton I quickly jumped into clubs that I thought I would enjoy and to be honest I am more satisfied of my college experience then I ever thought I would be. I am in a service fraternity, a sorority as well as lavaliered into a fraternity if I was not at Barton most of that would not have happened and I would not be as happy as I am with out Barton College.
Bang for the buck
Barton might cost a pretty penny at first but when looking at the opportunities each person gets when attending this college it truly is a bang for its buck. Barton offers several services which includes tutors, computer labs that ever student has access to, a writing center in which will go over papers with you to show how you can improve as well as pre-exam jam and breakfast each semester so students can relax before exams, as well as 24 hour library hours during the week of exams to help students who need the quiet time or extra study materials. Most classrooms have some form of smart board for interactive class time to help the different learning styles of students. Last but not least Barton offers several SGA events throughout the year which include; dollar movie tickets, free movies in the theatre, homecoming dance, glow parties, and other types of fun activities.
Tips for prospective students
Like any other school and especially 4 year colleges you must be ready to learn while Barton.
