Catawba College Reviews
Rating 3.57 out of 5 348 reviews
It's diverse, the professors are helpful and friendly (for the most part) and the campus is clean and easy to navigate. One area for improvement could definitely be the cafeteria. The food is mediocre, and there isn't much variety in the meals.
I am a politics major and I like the professors, however, they do not teach very objectively. The food is awful, and housing is also less than ideal. I like the small, friendly atmosphere of the campus. Administrative offices are not very helpful.
The housing situation here makes me insanely stressed to the lack of freedom in the choices there are. The affordability of the housing is not good and I am currently arguing with the school/my family to be able to afford coming here. However teachers are good.
I have truly enjoyed part of my experience here but other than that it has been ok. It can sometimes be hard to communicate with administrative people. There is sometimes a lot of going back and forth with lots of miscommunication. If the tuition were not so high I would say it was worth the experience but I do not feel like this is a $24,000/ year experience.
The ENV faculty are amazing and make the experience personal and unique. Class sizes are small which means that there is a great opportunity to connect with professors.
My experience at Catawba has been pretty good. The professors really care about you and are dedicated to make you learn. The academics are really high valued. Most of the classes are taken in person and exams are in person as well. Regarding the facilities, I love it. I am a student-athlete playing soccer. The soccer pitch is quality.
The majority of my time at Catawba is going nicely. The school's personnel and instructors are kind, and I enjoy the environment. I'd like to see the classrooms and buildings renovated because they need to be updated.The gym also need restoration because it is too tiny for a school with that many kids. The "quad," which serves as the hub of campus, is typically empty because there is little to do there. The school needs to do a better job of organizing activities so that children may interact and develop friends.
I enjoy Catawba College, I like how small it is everyone knows each other a very friendly family campus. Just could have more on campus experiences for the students.
This college is a very friendly community. Your teacher sees on an eye-to-eye level with you. They are so sweet and we are such a big family.
I would say the overall experience is amazing, not only do they teach interesting things at catawba, but they also help you with your studying skills.
As a freshman, I am very impressed so far! The facilities are great, and my college experience so far is great!
Really fun and simple, there’s a pool we can go to, a beach volley ball court which is pretty fun and also a play room! We also get a money on our card to buy anything from a little food store which is very convenient. Teachers are good as well, very flexabke
I liked the people and staff that’s worked there but they do need to improve on the cafe food cause it’s really not that great
They put on a good show for student/parent orientation, but once you get into the actual school year, you realize that the dorms are old and falling apart, the school buildings are old and require constant repairs and renovations, the professors have criminal histories and racial prejudices. Was not the school for me.
There are a couple of things they can improve such as the cafeteria food and the campus overall. But it is important to mention that the professors are very friendly and care about the student's success, for the most part.
Awesome school if you're dumb as a rock, only numbers they care about is what is on the check, they provide answers to test and homework, so your Child will do well if they can read, if they cant read at least they'll get a C .
The community of students and (some) staff is a true silver lining at Catawba. However, the pros of the college tend to end here. The school administration cares very little about students. There is little to no accommodation in scheduling, housing, meal options, or extenuating circumstances. Don't count on a reliable dining hall. Facilities in dorms and elsewhere are pitifully neglected, overrun with rot and mold. Classes and exams are always scheduled at the most inconvenient times, and the school is eager to make you leave as soon as your last exam is complete.
I only had to do online classes when the Pandemic started. It was obviously knew to everyone I just don't do well with learning online so I did not enjoy the online classes.
While at Catawba College I met some of the greatest people and have maintain the best relationships with them. I was able to be a student athlete which also allowed me to continue my education while playing the sport I loved the most. However, academic wise I didn't enjoy my time at Catawba. I had good professors but I didn't fill as if administration really cared about the well-being of their students. The cafeteria was absolutely terrible and I refused to eat there.
Its very easy for me to learn and do the work on my own time. Though teachers can be a bit confusing on the course content.
