Family Weekend

Mark your calendar for Family Weekend on September 29 - October 1, 2023!

Family Weekend is a fall tradition where parents and families are invited to spend time at their students’ home away from home and connect with other Catawba families. It’s another way we welcome our students’ families into our Catawba family.




Register today for Family Weekend 2023! We look forward to meeting you!
