    Don't be afraid to apply if you are not Catholic, or even religious. While there is a religious presence on campus, it is not over-whelming or mandatory. Also, make sure you find your niche when you get there, and college will be a blast. Never be afraid to ask questions, for almost everyone on campus is willing to help! The Greek presence is really strong at USD, so if you are not that interested in joining a fraternity of sorority, it is something to consider.
