I love it! Campus food is going to be improved by 2020 when the new dining hall opens. My favorite thing about Catholic is all of the community service opportunities. Everyday there is a way to get involved with the community and help people. The education pushes you to have to work hard. It’s a very traditional education which was hard for me at first but I like the challenge. Also there are so many internship opportunities available in the city. Every night of the week there are networking events. It’s just an overall great school with serious students.
CUA is home to about 5,000 undergrad. The campus is small, but always kept in tip top shape. The students come from all over, mainly states from the east coast. The environment is warm, friendly, and safe. CUA is more of a bar school, however certain sport houses throw some good parties once in a while. CUA's cafeteria is one of the worst in the country, you may starve if you come here because the choices in the upstairs food court are horrendous. However, administration has become aware of this in recents years and is attempting to fix this problem. CUA is currently building a new & improved food court. CUA is a great institution, the small class sizes are great for learning and the university is well recognized throughout the country.
I am currently in my last year at Catholic University of America, and I am very happy I chose this school to pursue my MSW at. The curriculum is easy to understand. The online learning option is perfect for me as I do not live near the campus. I really enjoy being able to carry on with the rest of my life while still being able to participate in class work, and an education through this wonderful school! I would recommend Catholic University of America to anyone and everyone interested in pursuing graduate studies for social work. Great Place to attend!

Its just awesome.. Also, we are blessed to have the Bascilica in the middle of our campus.. It is a great and peaceful place to be in..
As soon as my mother drove away last August, leaving me at Catholic University of America,I was honestly scared and excited for my adventure.But, I knew that attending at Catholic University of America, I would be receiving a great education. I was mentally prepared for the lack of sleep, consist hours of studying and drinking coffee in order to stay alive. Realizing that college went from 0 to 100 real quick. My mental preparation needed more information such as budgeting, extreme organization and prioritize oneself in order to get into graduate school. I kept my circle extremely small and social interactions less of a priority. However, I am still working on working out of my comfort zone. Throughout my learning at Catholic, college is suppose to help us understand how the world evolves and that everything connects. However, the most important thing my professors have taught me, is to work extremely hard because in reality none wants to higher lazy people.
I absolutely love my school! I love being in DC and only a metro ride away from all the monuments and the national mall. I feel so at home at CUA and I do not have any complaints; except the food is not very good.
Catholic University is a good school with great opportunity and amazing access to DC where even more opportunity awaits. As a freshman, the "Catholic identity" really gets shoved in your face, and there are some idiotic rules with the housing that make you feel like a child. But aside from that, the school is beautiful and provides a great education.
I love the campus at Catholic University of America and it’s location in Washington,DC—I found the people on the campus to be engaging and inviting as well. The Media and Communications department has me most excited as that is my intended major. I look forward to starting my freshman year in this wonderful place!
I like that Catholic was a smaller school so close to downtown Washington D.C. The school has many opportunities to get involved socially and academically. The dorms are very good compared to other universities because they are large and well kept. While the athletic center may be small, great training happens there. The academics are challenging but very possible and professors are interested in getting to know you.
It was an overall pleasant experience thus far. However, financial troubles are the only thing holding me back and continuously causing me stress.
Family oriented university, that makes you feel welcome the minute you step on campus. I visited the university in February and have now made the decision to enroll my freshmen year. I am grateful for all the opportunities I have in the 4 years ahead!
Catholic is a good school overall. It is not an exceptional school like an Ivy league school but its academics are good and improving. The campus is well maintained and it is very close to DC which is a unique experience to see the capital on a whim. The only thing holding the campus back is literally funds as a good amount of the buildings are old and they are looking to reconstruct them. A big thing this school does is connect you opportunities for internships which makes you very appealing in the job market afterwards. Many Freshmen I knew are getting internships already. Overall, Catholic is a good school that is constantly trying to improve itself.
I am not a student yet but will be attending in the Fall of 2018. I will be playing on the schools varsity baseball team. I have dealt with the admissions office and the coaches and have had a great experience in having all my questions answered. I have been made to feel welcome and look forward to becoming a part of the school and team.
So far, as a freshman I have really enjoyed my college experience at CUA! Teachers care about the students and want them to succeed. It is also a bonus to have such easy access to DC!
Awful school for undergraduates. The school puts its money into the graduate program and the undergrad program is there for them to make money. Even if you don't go to parties and get sick there, you'll probably wind up in the ER anyway if you dare eat food at the food court. Some dorms are nice while others are moldy and should be condemned. Professors are pretentious snobs on the most part. Don't let their good recruiting programs fool you. Stay away from CUA!
I’m studying biomedical engineering and I love it. This definitely isn’t a party school and it’s D3 so if those are more important to you than your degree, keep that in mind.
I like the people and the faith aspect. There is a wide range of classes an undergrad can take, but the administration has chosen to combine and drop some offered courses making classes close to overcrowding for no reason except that they don't hire enough professors.

When I toured the school, everyone was extremely friendly. The professors were approachable and the students on the football team (who I stayed with) were extremely nice.
This is the best online course that I have taken. The professors actually care about you and call and check on you. I RECIEVED COMPLIMENTS that I did not believe I would ever get from a professor.
Amazing school and great people. Everyone is extremely friendly. I have made amazing friends who are there to support. It is extremely expensive but worth it.
