In your opinion, what is one of the most impressive things about your college?
Our classes are small so the students get one-on-one attention. Also, our graduates have done really well with getting in the workforce and getting great jobs right out of college. We also have some unique majors like Graphic Communication.
Are there any special events or deadlines on your recruitment calendar that you would like to share?
Chowan Scholarship Day is an important day because that is when students can come to campus and interview for scholarships. Those dates vary and can be found at chowan.edu/scholarshipday.
