What is your overall opinion of this school?

Catawba College is a small private college located in North Carolina in a small town called Salisbury or otherwise known as "Smallsbury." The best aspect about Catawba is the small campus. Most will either love it or hate it. Like myself, what many tend to love about it is that it is like a community and sometimes it's even more like a family. When making your five minute walk to classes or lunch, you are bound to see at least one person you know. I would have to say the best part about Catawba College is the professors and class size. I have attended classes that had a 4-1 student to professor ratio. Of course not all of the courses contain this small of a class size, but I can say that I have never been in a class that had more than 24 students...EVER!! That's what is so great about it. Professors are so comfortable and open to class discussion during their lecture that it is almost impossible to fall behind. If you do fall behind, the professors always have their office hours listed by their door or online, or you can even meet with them by appointment. You may even be able to catch them walking across campus, and if they aren't busy they will usually invite you back to their office to clear up any issues or confusion you may have. The professors not only care about your success, but your well being and mental health as well. I haven't met a single professor that didn't ask how the students were doing when they know the semester is getting rough, or even inviting students to their office with open ears so you can clear your mind. Another great aspect of Catawba is the student ran events. There is usually a movie night open to students about twice a month, there are annual talent shows and lip sync battles, arts and crafts that you can keep forever, magician shows, weekly worship services as well as services by the campfire with free smore's, and even a small fair at the end of the year that Catawba calls "palooza." Many will remember Catawba for this event as it is filled with student led live music, free fair food, free rides, and free prizes!! If you are one to participate in sports but didn't get a scholarship that's okay! Catawba welcomes walk on's. If you still want to play but don't want to be involved in the actual league, there are intramural sports where you play for fun with your fellow classmates. When looking at the price of tuition for Catawba don't be scared. Almost every student on the campus is offered a hefty scholarship and receives financial aid. Catawba really is what you make it. If you get involved you'll make plenty of friends to last a life time and you will have the best college experience of your life. Go CAT-U!!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Catawba has a great campus and community involvement. These are what have drawn me to look into attending the school. While visiting the campus although the buildings are old they have been renovated and updated. The dorms are in close proximity to the education building and the library. They have a great intramural program along with 21 college sports available to those who wish to compete at the college level.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is fairly good overall. I believe that they can work on the food in the cafeteria a little more than they are right now. Athletics and Arts are a very big part of the school. There are always plays or musical group meetings to go to. Everyone is always invited to go to club meetings or to stay over the weekend to enjoy fun Friday events. They always change the event that happens on Fridays but it is always something fun and new to do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Catawba College is a great small school with a more liberal atmosphere and some great faculty. Despite being a mainly music and theater focused school, it has plenty of other good degrees available with solid instructors and support from the top. The small size and age of the school works against it in terms of its student housing and facilities, many of which need serious renovations or more buildings in general need to be constructed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Catawba College has its issues just like every other college, it has its advantages and disadvantages. Catawba is great, but my biggest pet peeve about this school is the few people who you can encounter and will possibly only speak to you in class but not out of class. I believe networking is amazing to get to know each other and have a variety of people to know, instead of falling off after class, or only feeling like you can only speak to that person within the class period.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the staff and my peers. Class sizes are ideal and the work is not too difficult with determination and easy access to professors. Campus life is comfortable and friendly. There isn't an overload of drama; the students are here to receive a higher education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Catawba is a place where you will always feel comfortable, included, and at home. It is a place where everyone is involved and part of campus. Catawba may be small, but it is huge to current students, faculty, staff and alumni. It has great academic programs, organizations, sports teams, dorms, and activities. Most importantly it values its core of scholarships, culture, service, and character.
