On Friday, February 26, 6th grade AVID students visited Barton College in Wilson, NC. They learned about life at a small private college, explored financial aid options, and toured the campus and its facilities. Students even viewed dorm rooms.
NC offers students a variety of options for higher education, and even though Barton is a small college, it offers a big education. Barton’s chemistry lab is comparable to the one available at NCSU and their WRAL Media Lab includes equipment formerly used by WRAL’s studios. Approximately 30% of their students are student-athletes, including Nick, the tour guide pictured here who plays men’s tennis. Barton may be small, but it has a lot to offer.
