4 College Sophomore

Academics: One can experience jobs hands-on within sociology.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The curriculum is very advanced and challenging.

3 College Junior

Academics: I took Elementary to Spanish and I just couldn't seem to understand how to conjugate them. Needless to say my professor and I had a talk after class on how he could help me to focus on the basic's and then move on from there. We met every other day for about a month and with his help I come out of the class with a B+.

3 College Freshman

Academics: It is great being a biology major. The labs are very time consuming but I learn a lot once they're finished. Our biology program is one of the top in North Carolina. There is a huge work load but with time and dedication it is easily adaptable. Catawba also sets the students up with job interviews once the program is complete and there are many interships during the year.

3 College Senior

Academics: Small College Atmosphere Has Advantages and Disadvantages – The small college atmosphere of Catawba College means small student to professor ratios, a personal touch with both faculty and staff, and extra help when you need it. Disadvantages of a small campus include limited degree options, less online class opportunities, older facilities, and technology that is just beginning to catch up with larger schools.

The teachers really care about their students and their futures. They are readily available for consultation during and outside of their office hours. Class sizes are small, with roughly 20 or fewer students, which allows for students to have closer relationships with their professors. The workload is bearable in most of the general education classes. The College's music and theater departments have been named some of the best in the nation.

Best Places to Study
  • Corriher-Linn-Black Library
  • Lilly Center for Vocation and Values
Tips to Succeed
  • Ask other students or check before choosing particular professors and/or classes.
  • Check book prices online before purchasing them from the bookstore.
  • Get involved in clubs and events. You will meet all kinds of new people.
  • Go to class; do not miss more than the allotted amount of classes or your grade will fall.
  • You may have to change your study habits from the way they were in high school. High school and college are NOT the same.
