This small North Carolinian liberal arts school (associated with the United Church of Christ) offers students a well-rounded liberal arts education, a commitment to environmental sustainability, and classes structured around current events. Preparation for students entering their prospective fields is a focal point, and “professors go out of their way to make sure every student is involved in the learning process.” Strong music, theatre, and environmental science programs are standouts of the seventy available academic fields of study at Catawba, which students say is “a strong community of teachers, faculty, and students with a common goal of excellence in education.”
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.
