What is an Open House?
One of the best ways to learn about Catawba College is to visit our campus during an Open House, which is basically a day of "Getting to Know Catawba." On these special days, prospective students have the opportunity to tour the campus and talk with faculty, students, and admissions counselors.

To make an appointment, or for more information, call 1-800-CATAWBA or e-mail
