Hotels near Barton College in Wilson, NC

Barton College is a private, four-year, liberal arts institution located in Wilson, North Carolina. Its history can be traced back to the 1901 purchase of Kinsey Seminary by the North Carolina Christian Missionary Convention. In 1902, the school was incorporated under its original name of Atlantic Christian College and opened with a capacity enrollment of 107 students. The college was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 1955. In 1990, the school was renamed Barton College. Its namesake, Barton Warren Stone was a major figure in the founding of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a Protestant Christian denomination with which the college is affiliated. Notwithstanding its religious affiliation, Barton College does not seek to indoctrinate its students or faculty with a sectarian point of view.

Today, Barton College’s nearly 1200 students can earn baccalaureate degrees in over 30 majors, as well as master’s degrees, through its system of five schools: School of Arts and Sciences; School of Business; School of Education; School of Nursing; and School of Social Work. A number of bachelor degrees can be earned through the school’s Accelerated Professional Program, with many classes offered evenings, weekends and online. Emphasizing that “no student in the new millennium can succeed unless educated as a citizen of the world,” Barton College initiated a Global Focus program in 1998, providing on-campus events and study abroad programs.

Barton College’s campus is situated on 76 acres in Wilson, approximately 45 miles east of North Carolina’s capital city of Raleigh. On-campus housing is available through a system of five residence halls. Students can participate in a wide variety of intramural sports, as well as over 40 campus-sponsored clubs and organizations. There is also an active Greek community with three men’s fraternities and three women’s sororities.
