On Campus

On Campus

Test your skills with Teqball,  enjoy disc golf, a game of cornhole, cruising a bike around our beautiful campus, or the sand between your toes at the beach volleyball court. There are plenty of rainy-day recreation options as well, such as indoor racquetball courts, indoor swimming pool, and the cardio and weight training facilities at the Wellness Center. 

Join your friends in the game room at the student center for some indoor fun with a friendly game of table tennis, air hockey, or pool. Or, just kick back and flex your mental muscles and dexterity with the fun and challenge courtesy of the Catawba Anime and Gaming Club or Chess Club.
