Barton College (previously Atlantic Christian) is a small college with an excellent reputation for the quality of its education. It offers a nursing program not surpassed by any other. It's appeal is its size - not student gets "lost in the shuffle". The faculty student ratio is great and the campus small enough to involve every student in activities.

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.
