Is that your final answer?!

It was the second semester of my senior year at E.A. Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina when I decided that Barton College was the place for me. During my process of college hunting, everyone told me that I will know where I want to go to because it will “feel right.”  I was …

Working Hard for the Money

With summer quickly approaching, the only stressful thing is the huge stack of job applications piled on my desk! Even though paperwork is no fun at all, the hardest part would be finding the perfect summer job. (Plus, it’d be nice if that job came with a big pay check!) Luckily, during the school year, …

“I Heart Barton”

Coming to Barton  has been a great experience so far. As a first year student, I love the relationships between the professors and students here; it’s completely different than anywhere else! !

Just for Kicks

Most people that I have met say they have never heard of TOMS, until they came down south.  I’m not sure why that is, because TOMS are the most comfortable, everyday shoe; not to mention they serve a good cause.  For every pair of TOMS sold, the company donates a pair to a child in …

The trip was called, “Journeys of the Soul,” where we took a path through Tuskegee, Selma, and Montgomery, Alabama and then proceeded to Atlanta, Georgia. “Journeys of the Soul” was a great educational trip!!

Stop Hunger Now

Last week Barton hosted a Stop Hunger Now packaging event in Wilson Gym. I have participated with Stop Hunger Now three times before, and every single time I’ve been assigned the same exact job.  Don’t ask me how, but it just works out that way.  So, now I’m a professional at weighing each bag as …

New Club on Campus!

When I first came to Barton, I was surprised to learn that there wasn’t a Mass Communications Club for us mass communication majors. Well, I took the initiative to start the club. Two of my friends and I, who are also mass communication majors, took the idea to the Director of Student Activities, and she …

It was a voluntary event where students and faculty were encouraged to go a day without shoes to support others that cannot afford shoes. This is a great event that was started by the TOMS shoe company, and it has …

Join the Club, We Have Jackets

One of the biggest parts of being a student at Barton College is choosing one of the many clubs and organizations available on campus. Currently listed on the school’s website, there are 49 (I counted) clubs and organizations, from the Barton College Sign Choir (I’ve heard of talking with your hands, but singing?) to Full of Color, …
