“It’s okay to be scared… it all works out once you have arrived at the place that you really want to call home.”

"I came to Catawba after leaving Stanly Community College where I became a licensed esthetician. I loved Catawba the first day that I set eyes on it and when I came for the new student and transfer student orientation my love just grew stronger. They made the transition for me as smooth as possible and there was always something to do and for me to take part in. Well the same thing is still happening! Every week there is something fun and exciting to do on campus. I never had a college experience like this before and I have no doubt in my mind that Catawba was one of the best decisions I ever made and is definitely the right school for me!"

"I transferred in as a junior to Catawba from Davidson County Community College where I received my Associate's in Arts degree. My transition into Catawba College was made incredibly easy and it was smooth sailing from the time I applied until currently as a student. Transfer Day was so helpful because not only did I learn about what I was getting myself into education-wise, but I was able to meet others like me who ended up becoming my closest friends here at Catawba. The influence that my instructors have on me, and the friendliness of all my fellow peers, sure have made my experience at Catawba College a positive one."

"I transferred to Catawba College as a junior from Davidson County Community College with an AAS degree in Human Resources. I love the people ... they're like family, caring and friendly! The orientation process was easy; you get all your questions answered and the staff was very helpful. If you need anything, they will make it happened for you. I’m glad I attended the orientation, not only did I meet some great staff there but now also my good friends as well. My experience so far has been great! If I need help in anything, the professor would be kind enough and take their time and work with me. I am glad to be part of Catawba family!"

"I loved transferring to Catawba. I spent two years at Rowan Cabarrus Community College, and after that I was ready for the change. Catawba is exactly what I needed. I got help on finding what my ideal job was and I’m in that direction now. I was happy that I was able to receive help financially, because most scholarships go just to Freshmen. Overall, this has been a great experience. Everyone was so encouraging, and I felt wanted. I really appreciate all their help."
