Odyssey Day

April 7, 2017

 


Odyssey Day offers you the chance to experience our rich and varied resources in an entirely new way — as an admitted student!

Throughout the day, you will discover how Catholic University will engage you both as a student and person. Learn more about the academic programs that fit your passions, sample some of the many extracurricular activities Cardinals enjoy, and tour the campus that will be your home for the next four years.

Perhaps most important is the opportunity Odyssey Day gives you to socialize with your future classmates, who hail from virtually every state in the nation and around the world. It’s your first opportunity to gather with the entire Class of 2021 to explore your new home together.

Odyssey Day also features Night on the Town excursions in downtown Washington, D.C., that last through the evening. Experiences range from museum and monument tours to checking out local hotspots where Catholic University students like to hang out off campus. These events are first-come, first-serve, with details and pricing coming soon.

See what makes Catholic University’s community so special. Odyssey Day 2017 is our way of celebrating your future at Catholic University.
