Love the new "facelift" of the entry way to the school. I took a group of elementary school students there this past May. It's a definite improvement since I was a student there in 1975.

Barton College stands out from the rest of the educational institutions for the quality education imparted in a small campus where everyone has the southern hospitality at heart. As a Wilsonian, I take pride in this great college of ours!
