“If you’re looking for a school that has the love of a parent, the heart of a friend, and the spirit of a student body, Catawba is for you.”
Joseph Peterson '13
Politics Major (Pre-Law); Graduate of Campbell University’s Wiggins School of Law
"Catawba was the ideal fit for me. The small campus setting in the South is a great environment, and I love North Carolina and Salisbury. The professors have a great line of communication with students and are never too busy to listen to you. I chose the Politics major with a concentration in Pre-Law because it is a challenging and interesting course load, and I enjoy studying the inner workings of government and the law."

"Aside from a beautiful campus set in a great small town like Salisbury, what drew me to Catawba was the opportunity to develop a close working relationship with all of my professors. I feel they were able to build upon my strengths and challenged me to excel, both in and out of the classroom. My dream is to someday work in politics at the state or local level where I feel I can have the most positive impact on those constituents. The knowledge I gained and the support I received from the very involved faculty at Catawba gave me confidence that my dream is well within my sights."
