The location. Washington DC is a great place to be a young person. There is always something to do in the city. Someone who has pleanty of money, and likes to go to bars would be very happpy here.


Someone who wants to be in a city but still wants to be somewhere that feels like a campus.


People who are spiritually devout and interested in fostering their religious faith through academic studies while also helping others should attend this school. The Catholic Unversity of America has a lot to offer in that respect; its programs and agenda strongly promote reaching out to and beyond the borders of the Washington D.C. community, often offering tutition money in exchange for anything from teaching children to going on mission trips to foreign regions. Here, just as much emphasis is put on self-improvement and spiritual growth as it is on academic development.


Anyone who wants to get a good education, especially those who want to work hard for it. People who are friendly and caring. Catholic students devoted to their faith or interested in learning more about their faith.


A person who can manage to be very academically focused but outgoing and social at the same time.


Catholic University is a great place for a student who is serious about doing well academically in a faith-based context.


Someone who is conservatively minded, who is interested in volunteering, drinking, or Campus Minsitry minded.


conservatives are in abundance and moderates tend to fit in pretty well. The school is a big irish catholic school so rugby is a huge sport, as is st. patricks day. there is a fair amount of drinking by students but it isn't something that everyone does or is pressured to do. community service and volunteering is big here. A lot of students take a year off after to do service (peace corps, teach for america, other catholic service missions).


Someone who is goal oriented and wants to be able to hold good internships and jobs while attening college in the city and someone who respects the value of tradition but has a thirst to better themselves and those around them.


A person who is smart and messed around a little in highschool who may not have a sense of direction, but likes buisness or architecture or engineering. Someone open to Catholic references for theos/philos. People who like the d.c. area and couldn't get into or afford gtown or gw. Christians, gays, theatre majors, jocks, all have a place here. . This is suprisingly a very accpeting and worthwhile school to anyone who can afford it. Even with 60{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} transfer rates, most people like it here. The other 40{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} wouldn't trade for anywhere else in the world.


A person who wants to be seen as a person and not a number. Also, a person who wants every possible opportunity as far as career and a college experience. A person who is prepared to be connected with all sorts of wonderful people in permenent friendships, that become family.


Someone who is smart, likes to excel in academics, wants a smaller school, wants an internship in DC, and wants to party with their friends.


Conservative Catholics would fit in very well because the university is highly focused on the religion, and the school trains the students to go deeper in about their religion.
