The only university in the country originally founded by United States Catholic bishops, Catholic University of America is a Catholic research institution in Washington, DC. Catholic University is home to 12 schools granting bachelor’s degrees in over 60 academic majors and all classes conform to the doctrines of the church and the Holy See. As the national university of the Catholic church, Catholic University celebrates daily and Sunday masses at several chapels throughout campus. Throughout the year, Catholic U schedules a number of activities for first year students from the Metro Madness DC scavenger hunt to a Freshman Retreat. The institution operates a second campus in Rome, Italy, with a partner school, the Australian Catholic University.
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.

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.
