‘Creative Colleges’ guide again includes Catawba College

In the fifth edition of “Creative Colleges,” Catawba College is again included as one of the options for arts majors across the board.

Compiled by Elaina Loveland — a former dancer, writer, editor, teacher and editor-in-chief of International Educator and The Journal of College Admission — the Creative Colleges guidebook is considered by many as a must-have resource for college-bound students studying the creative arts in the U.S. The guide balances nurturing students’ passions with providing practical college advice and what it takes to build a career as an artist.

The guide can help creative students decide if Catawba College is the school where they will thrive. They will also read stories about 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.
  • The scoop on academic life from students in each discipline and advice from top admissions directors.
