Most Helpful Review for Catholic University of America

The classes here are small. The average class is about 18 people. So you really get to have a relationship with your teachers and they know you by name. The teachers are very helpful and make time to answer questions and make sure everything is clear. Although some of the required classes (Theology and Philosophy) don't interest me, i still learn a lot.

    Catholic University of America is a wonderful academic institution. There is also a great sense of spirituality on campus, but it is not over powering to the non-catholic student. However, the University's administrative departments unfortunately lack and can be very burdensome and unhelpful to students.

    Catholic has a great sense of community, there is a constant feeling of support and interest as a student. The academics are challenging, yet manageable. The faculty and student body is extremely welcoming and there is always aid available for whatever issues or troubles you might experience.

    Although rigorous academics, the school is everything I was looking for. There are ample opportunities to study in groups or get a tutor.

    CUA is a great school with a very friendly community. If you're looking for a relatively small school in a big city, CUA is probably a good fit for you. There's so much to do on and off campus that you'll never be bored.

    This school is based on Catholic values and has more conservative views but it also has a strong sense of community so everyone feels welcome. The academics are challenging, but not impossible and the teachers are extremely proficient. Beautiful campus and fun opportunities in the city.

    CUA is a mid-sized, liberal-arts oriented university. Academics and Catholic values are highly valued here. There is also a surprising mix of personalities among the student body itself.

    Catholic University is a medium sized school with a intimate learning environments that allow healthy teacher-student relationships. Catholic is in close proximity to downtown DC (accessible via metro on campus) where there are countless restaurants, museums (free), and places to explore. There are also incredible internship opportunities available to students in the DC area, and Catholic has a great relationship with many.
