Simply stated: There is always a party at Catholic University of America. Whether students are trying to throw a sneaky party in a dorm room or are making their way by the dozens to the many bars and clubs D.C. has to offer, the bottom line is that you can tell the weekend has arrived when CUA kids are stumbling around. And the weekend really starts on Thursday here. The funny thing is that the widely-held perception about Catholic University is that everyone is a prude. And while there is a large group of students who prefer not to drink under any circumstances, those who do drink really make their presence known.
It is hard to find a bar or club without a Catholic University student downing a shot of something or tearing up the dance floor. And thanks to the vast nightlife in D.C., the possibilities for nighttime entertainment are limitless, whether students are 21 or not. So if you are looking for a party, look toward CUA. After all, the school is predominantly students with Irish Catholic backgrounds.
