The Catholic University of America


Dear New Students,

Welcome to CUA! We are so happy you have joined us as part of the class of 2019 or as a new transfer student. This is a very exciting time for you. You will find that CUA 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 to The Catholic University of America, the university offers Orientation Next throughout the first six weeks.  Orientation Next is a series of events that all first year students are welcomed to attend, with the hope that you will make a friend, connect with a resource, or get involved on campus, and hopefully, ease your transition into CUA.  Orientation Next concludes with the Orientation Welcome Home BBQ, which will be held on October 10, 2015. You and your families are invited to attend, to celebrate the completion of your first six weeks here at CUA.  A detailed PDF version of the Orientation Next schedule is here.

Our staff is here to help you in your CUA experience. Please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance via phone at 202-319-5627 or via e-mail at

We look forward to seeing you around campus!

Senior Associate Dean of Students and Director of Campus Activities
