Drug Safety: Cops dont really try to bust the students.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: Most on campus housing are near each other, we call it the village. Its easy to get to all classes. Its a good idea to live off campus as an upperclassmen because its cheaper and better quality. The RAs are well above par.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Not many people are involved and it isn't necessarily what most people consider to be Greek Life.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Buildings from the 60s that have been renovated to have AC and heat and modern amenities, and then some newer dorm buildings from the late 2000s that are a lot better.

Greek Life: Not really affiliate with the univeristy. Definitely not like Greek life seen in movies and if you're looking to go to a good party from them, you should look elsewhere

3 College Senior

Academics: first off the program's seem like they do not talk to each other because the workload of one major conflicts with another and the importance of which class it up in the air which adds stress to the student

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: some of the professors are great but it seems like the good ones are left go for ones who've been there longer and are stubborn

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: by being located in DC a lot of opportunities are put out there because of the alumni

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: no campus can be 100% safe especially in the area where catholic is located

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: location is everything but there isn't that much to do on campus or near campus like other universities nearby

3 College Senior

Athletics: sports aren't that good which was one reason why I refrained myself from participating

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Catholic University is a good school—plain and simple. It blends the best of both worlds—a small, conservative, Catholic community of religiously devoted students mixed with a liberal arts university smack-dab in Washington, D.C. The nation's capital is one of the most exciting cities in the country, if not the world, where students can live up the best years of their lives. Catholic University provides all of the resources necessary to live a spiritual life in college, while still granting the autonomy to students who applied for other reasons, such as the University's exceptional theater, music, architecture, and nursing programs. CUA's biggest problem is the perception that the school's goal is to prep would-be priests and nuns. But this is simply not true. The University's Catholic identity does not hinder or isolate students with different faiths or beliefs. Catholic lives up to the liberal arts curriculum it boasts and does its best to accommodate both those who adore and are apathetic to the Catholic aspect.

When it comes to living the college life, CUA makes good on providing what students are truly looking for. There is a brilliant nightlife, good cohort of party animals, and a healthy social atmosphere. CUA pulls off what most universities cannot: It can be both a party school and a deeply religious and proud Catholic school. Students can grow in their faith, thanks to religious figures roaming on campus and student leaders who are bent on keeping—and passing—the faith. The University is not perfect, and it does not pretend to be. But the administration is making strides to improve in all aspects, whether it's campus construction and renovation or fine-tuning the academic and career opportunities. In the end, if you were to ask everyday students what they think of the school, they'll all say different things, but they'll all be smiling as they say it.
