"The Honors Program provided me with tools for thinking and working that have changed how I approach my school work and I am so grateful.- K. Joyner

"Catawba's Honors Program offers unique courses often team taught by phenomenal professors. That arrangement is something you can't find at most schools and something you should definitely take advantage of!- K.P. Walsh
