Catawba is a close-knit and incredibly active community. We have students from around the world who enjoy a variety of diverse interests and activities.

Get Involved and Thrive.

Catawba students have the distinct advantage of attending college in the Piedmont region of beautiful North Carolina, where we enjoy four mild seasons and lots of opportunities to get out and explore. Our campus is within driving distance of the mountains, the beach, professional sports venues, amusement parks and attractions, and one of the biggest outlet malls in the Carolinas - just to name a few.  

Students at Catawba College also have access to some of the best and most rewarding volunteer opportunities both on campus and off campus in the local Salisbury-Rowan community. Whether it is being an active leader for campus organizations, volunteering at the local food pantry, or conducting a donation drive for the local animal shelters, there are plenty of ways to make a substantive difference in the lives of others and your own! 

Make the most of your time at Catawba, and you'll leave here with lifelong friends and plenty of truly fulfilling experiences that will prepare you for a truly fulfilling life!

Catawba students have the opportunity to serve the campus and local community through various service and volunteer organizations.

Live on Campus

Approximately 83% of first-year Catawba College students live on campus. There are tons of events and activities to take part in year 'round, so jump right in and fully immerse yourself in our campus culture by living on campus as a resident student.

With over 40 student clubs and organizations, Division II and intramural athletics, and countless theatre and musical performances, there is always something to do or be a part of!

What do do, what to do...







Try your hand at disc golf, cornhole, or hit the sand volleyball court. If you prefer the indoors, challenge them to a friendly game of table tennis, air hockey or a pool.

View Activities

Intramural sports are a fun way to enjoy recreational activities within a competitive atmosphere. Intramurals are also a great way to get mentally and physically healthy!
