    This university will be completely different than you ever expected it to be. Everything about CUA will challenge you, but develop you as a person at the same time. Make sure Washington, DC is somewhere you want to live before you decide to come to college here.

    Catholic is expensive so prepare for the expenses early. Seek out every scholarship opportunity to offset the high tuition costs.
