I did receive all my needs for this college this year except for book fees. I intend to be a physical Therapist but may have to transfer to receive my doctorate!! Catawba is well organized and the dorms are excellent. I have not received my curriculum at this point but I know I will start with exercising sciences. I just want this d/t my mother being disabled and know I can help her out with this degree behind me. Please do need the help...
