    Your money doesn't go to the freshmen dorms, food or internet. BUT, the teachers here are amazing and they try really hard to keep the campus beautiful. The president of college knows everybody's name (which is crazy) and listens to everyone. He's been known to sit with black lives matter movements or come cheer on freshmen who are doing games on the lawn. The money goes where it really counts. (also, in a couple years our internet will be the fastest in the state. :)

    For as much as you pay to go here, its not worth it. The food isn't good, plus there is only two places to eat on campus. The business office isn't very good either. You need to keep track what you are paying because they will overcharge you. Also, there is no way to view your bill online so they usually will charge you and not know why. You are at their mercy to what you owe and when you owe it.

    Even though the price tag for Catawba may seem a little pricey at first, the personal education that you receive because of the small class sizes and the dedicated teachers that actually know you by name make up for the price.

    I have to say that I think Catawba is a bit more expensive than most would like. There are many scholarships given out but there is also a lot of students in debt by the end of it.
