Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2020
"One of the many difficulties of being a transfer student is finding out where you fit in, and the other is if you genuinely desire to fit in. Personally, as a transfer student after little guidance into campus life, I found myself feeling separate from the community. And, on top of everything, I was in my mid-20s and lived off-campus. Most classmates did not know that I had just started to live on my own from being homeless and desired to get my degree. I was beyond nervous and had very little knowledge of the South lifestyle since I was from the Big City. Having more classes than the average student, I had to navigate my way to sanity and build connections with those I could trust. In light of all this, I managed to make one friend in two days (we are still besties today). Along the way, my relationships with students, teachers, faculty, and staff have made me even stronger and wiser, volunteered in the county community, or Barton College's Day of Service, and now I am a peace corp service candidate. Personally, realizing that there is more too the situation than the eyes judge on the surface, we must ask others in a way they are willing to express their stories with kindness. And, in doing so, realize that you must be allowed into one's personal space without force."

"Barton College is a small university in the eastern part of North Carolina. The small campus allows you to make a lot of connections with a variety of different majors and professors. While attending Barton as an undergraduate I have had the opportunity to participate in multiple research projects. I have gotten to develop a close relationship with the head of my department and been allowed access to projects that at a larger school would have been more difficult to do. The program is growing and getting better and better every semester. While at Barton as an undergrad you have the opportunity to graduate with three certification in the exercise science realm which is another perk at going to a smaller school."

"Barton College is an amazing institution on the eastern coast of North Carolina. I was a double major , but also a dual athlete. My first degree was in Mathematics and it was one of the biggest accomplishments for me. The program is very hard, but the instructors are one of a kind and go above and beyond to make sure you are understanding the material. Also the class sizes for math majors on the upper level are very small which means you have a close relationship with the instructors. The Biology department is also outstanding and very interactive. The best parts about the school are how involved they are in supporting the community through service and also how they engage with the students by having fun days."

"My two favorite things about Barton College are the Weekend College program and the professors in the WEC program. The Weekend College program was designed for working adults who may not ordinarily be able to take off work or take college classes. I worked full time and was raising young children at the time that I attended Barton's WEC program. The professors in the WEC program were current classroom teachers, which made their advice and expertise even more valid. They brought practical experience to all our classes. None were so far removed that what they were teaching wasn't relevant. In addition, they also were working full time and raising families just like the students, therefore were more understanding of our lifestyles and respectful when speaking to us about class schedules, due dates, and other assignments."
