Going to Barton they do a lot wrong with money. They want to charge you a finger and leg for anything they can there not nice about money at the school at all. Advice is to be rich if you go here or you just going to be stressed

Just did a tour with my sister and niece. Very impressed with the grounds, and the young lady doing the tour. She knew all kinds of interesting facts about how and when the place was built. Some of the architects details and why the buildings are the way they are. This college seems very nice and I’m now looking at other things like sports events or ways to enjoy all this college has to offer the surrounding community.
