What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
Catholic is a small college with decent academics and plenty of friendly people. It's lots of fun in D.C. and on campus. Both faith and party lifestyles are very active here.
Margaret from River Ridge, LA
Catholic University of America is such a welcoming and warm environment that is perfect for any student willing and ready to learn and have fun. The location, student life, and classes all have spectacular things to offer that are there for the taking. Catholic U is a place that I look forward to calling home for the next four years of my life and I can not wait until I start there in the fall.
