Catawba College Reviews
As a first gen, catawba really helped me thrive. The relationships that were built while I was there have been steadfast. People complain that there's nothing to do b/c they always stay in their dorms. Get out, meet people, have fun, work hard, and you'll come to realize these 4 brick walls titled "Catawba" can change your life like nothing else can. Fair Catawba!
This is my first year attending Catawba, I can honestly say so far my experience has been great! Although I do wish professors should communicate with their students more, I understand it is our responsibility to go to the professors for any questions. There is a great amount of diversity, I already have a couple friends from parts of around the world, from Mexico, India, to Brazil and etc. I do not stay on campus, but I do have have who stay in dorms. Dorms are pretty big, and look comfy. Because Catawba is a private school, it is quite expensive, but by applying quick, they do give many scholarships!
My experience at Catawba College has been tremendously great. The people and teachers are superior here and are willing to help you through academic struggles or even personal struggles; because they really care about their students. Another positive of this college is that the campus is a reasonable size and you will not get lost. On the other hand there are some little things that this college needs to work on, such as having a better wi-fi that will work for everybody and it will not kick you off of the wi-fi. Another thing that could be improved is the food they serve in the cafe, they could use more variety and add flavor to their food. Their are positives and negatives to any college you attend too, although the overview of Catawba College I would strongly recommend enrolling in this four-year college because of their excellent assistance, beautiful small campus, and all of the academic opportunities.
