I was enrolled in the Catholic University so ignore the CBrightSocial Work
I was enrolled in the Catholic University so ignore the Campus assessments as well the Social assessment. I simple think that the online program had many glitches with the program had to call support constantly so that was a plus, because you need it. do to breaking into groups of four in the online program a student may find themselves with no interaction to their post from classmates or professors. which give you a summary at the end of the week. so you find out after the week whether you are right or wrong.

Yes, Catholic will walk you through the enrollment process but once you are in you are a number and a statistic. I am so glad that I realized this was not the learning environment for me I like teacher interaction. I think for the cost and debt you are taking on you would do much better at another university that has the technology and live on hand support instead of constantly hearing the administrator is away from their desk leave your name and student ID and we will get back to you. Sorry but for what students pay for this University that is just unacceptable. Ask about the class size in the online University four students to interact with leads to someone being left out because you are only required to respond to two people. This may work for you, then give Catholic a try and I wish you the best, but for me it was the worst.

It is an incredible school.Quite BrightSocial Work
It is an incredible school. Not only are my teachers some of the best, but the experiences i've had are once in a lifetime. If you want to grow in your faith you can. If you want to volunteer its easy! If you want to be part of the DC community just how on the metro. I love CUA. The people here are so genuine. Whenever I see a tour go by I just want to tell them to come to CUA because it has been such a great experience!

Catholic University has been a great experience.BrightSocial Work
Catholic University has been a great experience. Most of the student body and faculty are good people, and it has a mostly positive atmosphere. You are challenged to learn, but it is not a competitive environment. It is right in DC, and easily accessible to the whole metro area. Living in Washington D.C. is an amazing benefit while in college. The city has so many resources and is amazingly diverse. For a small University, Catholic's offers a lot of good academic programs. The student body is not very diverse however. It is mostly white Catholic kids from either Pennsylvania, NJ, or NY. Overall it is a fun place to be. Anyone who complains about there being nothing to do, isnt trying very hard. Catholic University, and especially its location in D.C., have been a great college experience.
