WHY CATAWBA?

WHY CATAWBA?
I chose Catawba College because of the tight knit family feel that the soccer team had when I came to a training session. I waited till my senior year to make my decision and I am glad I did because that led me to find this awesome program. It is also not too far from my hometown, which is good because I did not want to be too far from my family. I really enjoyed my visit when I came and know that I will also benefit from the great academics.
