You will find that Catholic University has a lot to offer you - a variety of student organizations and service projects, spiritual engagement, internship opportunities in Washington, D.C., and outstanding faculty who are ready to engage you in new ideas.

To continue to assist you in your transition we will have Orientation Advisors available in the Pryz during the day for the first few days to ask questions. There are also tons of great events that you can take part in by visiting the Nest at If you're looking to join a student organization be sure to come to Fall Fest on Tuesday, September 6th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. for free food, great entertainment, and a student involvement fair.
