CUA students at campus concert

Picture yourself in the heart of the nation's capital at a unique university filled with possibilities. The Catholic University of America is a great place to be if you're seeking to engage in an active, rewarding, and fun experience that complements your academic endeavors.

With more than 90 student organizations at Catholic University, it's difficult to imagine not being able to find something exciting to do. However, if that's not the involvement you're looking for, there are also campus-produced musicals and performances, community service projects, and opportunities for individual leadership development. You can even become involved in helping plan and manage events on campus, or provide support for events behind the scenes.

If you still are longing for more, downtown Washington, D.C., is only a few short Metro stops away. And there are many University-sponsored events to get you into the life of the city. You don't even have to leave the Catholic University neighborhood to find a variety of restaurants and shops. Just walk across the street to the new Monroe Street Market development for great places to eat, art studios, the University Book Store, and much more. 


At The Catholic University of America, there's something for everyone, and there's always something going on. Get involved!
