5 College Freshman

Facilities: Academic support here at Catawba is free. They have support groups for most of the classes such as spanish and math, as well as personal tutors which you can request free of charge.

Athletics: Athletic events at Catawba are certainly not as huge as they are at a large university. However, the Catawba Indians have their fair share of school pride. Alumni and parents attend football games and tailgate before the games. the student section is always rocking to support any athletic event whether it be soccer, baseball, football, basketball or volleyball. Being a part of the marching band and pep band, I am always right in the middle of the "Catawba Pride" that is being shown to support our teams.

Parking: Catawba College just started charging students living on campus a parking fee. It is minimal though. Since our campus is small, any parking space will provide you with access to anything on campus. It is not necessary to have a car while living on campus. There are many shops and restaurants that are in walking distance. Plus someone with a car is always willing to take you along when they are out running errands.

4 College Junior

Facilities: One of the things that has impressed me about Catawba College is campus events and activities. The "Wigwam" organization is responsible for hosting numerous events throughout the year, such as Catawba Palooza in the spring. These guys go all out to make these events a major part of student life. At the Palooza, events are held outdoors and there are carnival type rides, food, music, and stations like a dress up photo booth and tons of prizes. Theater and music are also a big part of student life on our campus. In fact Catawba is known for it's Theater Arts department and the productions are amazing. Plus students, whether they are majoring in music or not, can perform for their peers once a month in the student union.

3 College Junior

Facilities: While attending Catawba College, I have had the opportunity to continue my passions and interests, as well as pursue my undergraduate degree. In fact, given that Catawba is a private school, my passions have allowed me to earn scholarships in music, marching band, and theater. Therefore, I have grown in the area of arts that I love, but continue to focus on my studies and work toward my degree. It hasn't been easy at times, managing all these responsibilities, time management is key. However, I have grown as an individual, met wonderful people and faculty, and really felt like an active part of my school.

Every school has its problems, and so does this one. But in the end, looking back on their experiences, many students will tell you that they enjoyed attending Catawba. Many have met some of their closest friends at the College and would jump at the chance to choose this school all over again if they had the opportunity.

As long as students take initiative, they will be well prepared for the "real world" upon graduation. The school is unique for many reasons. Catawba has many athletes, a nationally-ranked music program, and a nationally-ranked theatre program—and these are just a few of its assets. The school continues to grow and change.
