Catawba College sports “a small, close-knit community where you can really get to know your professors and your fellow classmates.” The school is known especially for its “high-ranking theater program and the hugely growing music program” as well as its athletics. Don’t let its small size fool you, as “big things come in small packages.” “Class sizes are small in order for you to receive as much of a personalized education as possible.” “Excellent financial aid” attracts many students, although some feel the university isn’t doing enough to “increase scholarships to match rising tuition.” Catawba is particularly strong for “highly focused programs (theater [and] music in particular).”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
