Catholic is a wonderful school with a breath taking campus, wonderful staff, and wonderful -i mean wonderful- academics. The professors are great but tough, and this is no fly by school. Only the most determined will last and succeed.

    CUA is an amazing school; they have sports, clubs and tons of degree programs; so I'm sure you may find what you're interested in studying! It's very diverse; you'll meet students from many different cultures and parts of the world; and the staff are great -- very helpful for just about situation you encounter!

    catholic university is the perfect balance: it's population is small enough that you don't get drowned in a sea of people, but big enough that you don't feel crushed by familiarity. it is close to the capitol and all of downtown dc, but far enough that you stay out of the dangerous parts every city entails. also, cua is rigorous enough academically so that you feel challenged and like you're getting your money's worth, but not so mind meltingly hard that you have a breakdown every month.

    An academically and spiritually strong school. The institution is staunchly conservative, but the students have diverse opinions. The faculty is kind and very generous with time and resources.

    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.
