Catawba was a great school to complete the remainder of my degree. I would recommend Catawba for certain things such as their athletics and demographic. I would not recommend Catawba for the lack of modernized on-campus housing and the preparation of the cafeteria food.
I am currently a freshman here but my first impression of the school is, average. Being honest, I would compare it to my high school when in terms of sanitary, meaning it's both poor or simply average at most. The dorms are what you'd expect from a college with them being small and average, but it's nice and small so it won't be too difficult getting lost, there are virtual maps to use, and the staff are always around whenever you need them.
I think Catawba as whole is a great school with great professors, small classes, and a focus on the academic achievements of their students. They also show concern for their students well being and work their best to provide their students with a satisfactory college experience..
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.

pick a larger university that has more fields of study. borrow the money to attend that school and not try to save money and live at home to reduce the cost. not have my father come out of retirement and go to work at catawba college to off set my tuition cost and let him enjoy his retirement from the state highway patrol.
My classmates at Catawba are very nice outgoing people who I found extremely easy to interact with. I am a fairly social person and so were the people in my classes so it was easy to meet new people. Catawba is a Liberal Arts school so the students there are very theatrical and dramatic and at first I found quite over whelming but they all were great people who i have grown to love and consider very close friends.
Many students live in the area, and the campus does tend to clear out on the weekends. Being a student from out of state, it makes things sort of difficult.
Those who love to party every night and not focus on schoolwork. Catawba is very dedicated to the the success of their students and will provide support in anyway possible. There is a feeling of hard work and accomplishment that surrounds campus, and while drinking and partying does occur, it is hardly discussed. Students who believe college is just a time to party would enjoy a larger school that is known for their parties.
My School is best known for there drama department, we put on tons of plays through out the year that have brilliant acting and singing by students of all ages. The performances are open to the public and free for students.
We have such a beautiful campus and an amazing theater program. Our theater program is 10 in the country according to Princeton review.
Fun, friendly atmosphere.
All the people you get to meet and become friends with. It's a small college so you get to know everybody and make tons of connections
An open-minded person looking to enjoy personal growth in a small liberal arts setting.
The more active you and the more involved you become with the community the better the experiance will be.
Food, Cost, and Boring
Catawba just has something on campus, that inspires you, the down home rural southern town, is just what makes it feel like home. But with the differences of opinion on campus, with all the different people coming together and being friends, makes that feeling just inspiring.
I love Catawba. The small classes and campus makes it easy to make friends and fine people who have similar interests as you. There is a variety of clubs and organizations to be involved in. Also, there is always some school sponsored event taking place in the student center.
The stereotype is that everyone that goes there is a christian. This stereotype is not accurate. You can get into the college and not go to church. You don't have to believe in God to find friends. Also, not all the activities on campus is revolved around church.
