cover-creativecoll17.jpgIn the fifth edition of “Creative Colleges,” Catawba College is again included as one of the college options for all arts majors across the board.

This guidebook contends that students are 100% unique, and their college should be too!

Compiled by Elaina Loveland, a former dancer, writer, editor, teacher, and former editor-in-chief of “International Educator” and the “Journal of College Admission”, “Creative Colleges” (5th edition; ISBN: 9781492647119; May 2017) is touted as a must-have resource for college-bound students pursuing the creative arts in the U.S. “Creative Colleges” balances nurturing students’ passions with providing practical college advice and what it takes to build a career as an artist.

Creative students will discover if Catawba College is the school where they will thrive and build their artistic career. They’ll also read stories from real students and tips on auditioning and preparing portfolios, as well as preparing and presenting artistic statements, admissions essays, and artistic resumes.

Other features in “Creative Colleges” include:

  • More than 275 in-depth school profiles on the best creative colleges for aspiring actors, artists, designers, dancers, writers, musicians, and more;
  • Profiles include degrees offered, concentrations, scholarship opportunities, and alumni accomplishments;
  • And, the scoop on academic life from students in each discipline and advice from top admissions directors.

Elaina Loveland has been a writer, an editor, a dancer, and a teacher. As the former editor-in-chief of “International Educator,” she understands the importance of finding a school that is not only the right fit but that provides the support necessary for students to fully pursue their passions. Loveland lives in Washington, D.C., and can be found at, or follow her @elainaloveland.
