A message from the President

Chowan University Students:

What a wonderful time to be part of Chowan University. We are blessed to have the distinction of being the fastest growing private university in North Carolina. Because of this significant campus improvements abound: three new student apartment buildings, a new tennis center, a newly renovated football center and numerous projects inside the buildings. The beauty of Chowan’s campus is widely recognized. However, I am most proud of the faculty and staff of Chowan University. Not only are they well educated and highly skilled but they care about you - the student. We are committed to your success as a student and your growth as a person. Chowan University means “family.” I am pleased that you have chosen to be a member of our family.

Best wishes for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Kirk E. Peterson
