What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
very challenging, but also very worthwhile academics, especially in philosophy and theology.
CUA Rocks!
Depending on your major, CUA can be very challenging but its not impossible. It also depends on your work ethic.
Jacob
They don't let you off the hook, but it is NOT boring. They rather not stick strictly to books and they like to learn by doing. Not a lot of big lecture halls and not a bunch of TAs.
William from East Windsor, NJ
The university is dedicated to quality education, especially in their English and Philosophy departments. If a student is considering this university, he or she should be a dedicated and punctual individual.
Cathryn from Washington, DC
Studies are rigorous, but manageable. Professors are helpful and want to see you do well. You can even study with friends and classmates.
Tye
Offers a strong foundation in a wide variety of subjects. It provides the strong liberal arts education advertised, but the professional schools are also very strong. Requires several courses in philosophy and theology.
Emma from Lexington, KY
They ARE going to push you. It will be challenging. It will get tough. However, it is possible. Teachers, study groups, and peers will always be there for help.
Shay from West Rutland, VT
The classes that I sat in on were interactive as well as informative!
Maggie
Classes vary but are definitely do-able as long as you keep up with the work. Very small class sizes so it is easy to form relationships with your teachers. Don't expect to be skipping class everyday because most take attendance.
