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.
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.
Catawba College was a school I was looking very much forward to attending and felt that it would be a great start into attending college. My first semester there, I enjoyed it and made many friends, however that would soon change, as people would begin to transfer and the cost of my attendance would soon raise to the point, I wouldn't be here anymore. With me transferring, I will always have nostalgia for this school as the teachers were great and the campus is beautiful.
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.
I love the campus. The college is a small campus. All the staff at Catawba seem to care for the future of the students. The location is in a rural area however close to major cities in North Carolina.
Safe environment, pretty architecture, culture not 2 liberal or conservative.Small & welcoming.Professors always willing 2 help.Good food.Good variety of clubs & events.Only NC college offering the major I want & the curriculum 4 my minor seems promising.Close 2 downtown with theatres, art galleries, museums, thrift stores & parks.Not 2 far from Charlotte & has a train station close.Still, I'm glad I transferred from a CC because it would get boring if I was here 4 years & it's really expensive. If I wasn’t a trust fund kid, Idk if it’d be worth it. But I like how transparent they were about their requirements, that they had a counselor who made the process go smoothly & that they accepted all of my credits (transfers with associate degrees from NC CC's automatically fulfill gen ed requirements).Housing 4 transfers. Ranked high by esteemed publications & more selective with their acceptance rate than most NC colleges which makes them more impressive 2 potential employers.
Took some classes online which were good. Easy to navigate. Knowledgeable, passionate professor. Mix of live zoom meetings, independent work, readings, activities, pre recorded lectures and more.
My online learning experience has been very nice. My professors have been very great about communicating with me about assignments and new updates through emails and video conferences and have made accessible many resources I can use to help me understand how to use the academic programs that have been made available to me.
I like Catawba College because I know that my wellbeing and education are always put first. My professors always make time to help me and challenge me to be my best academic self, while also encouraging me to help others and make a positive change in my community. My friends and classmates are reliable and I know I can always count on them when I have a question or need guidance. I also love the beautiful scenery and naturally aesthetic atmosphere that Catawba has to offer, allowing me to feel relaxed and right at home.
Catawba is normally a very face to face based community. Most teachers use blackboard for the classwork and submissions. Have strictly online classes is a different story; not all teachers like that style of learning.
I’m enrolling in an online bachelors degree program and so far it has went smooth and everyone has been so quick to assist me as a returning adult student.
The staff are very interested in my success and have been most helpful with every step by answering questions quickly and providing information I need.
Catawba College has a beautiful campus that makes the students feel like it is home. The people there are very friendly and outgoing, and the teachers really care about their students. While at this school I formed close bonds with professors and students that I will cherish forever. There are a variety of clubs to be actively involved in and on campus activities. I would strongly recommend this school to others.
I would like to see improvement with the cafeteria and have more dining options. Housing could improve as well as student life
All the times that I have toured and visited Catawba College have been excellent and so welcoming. It's an unexplainable feeling that I get when I am on campus. The professors and students have made an overall amazing and most welcoming experience for upcoming students like myself.
I enjoyed the small atmosphere in which I got to know people better since we were close together as well as 1 on 1 time with professors.
This school is cleverly disguised. At first you dont see it, but after you've been there for about a month you'll see that its actually just another football/drinking campus. The academics are a joke. The professors don't care. They rely on test scores to get you by and thats not an education: thats a scam. They care very much about sports teams and not enough about academics.
