The Catholic University of America

Dear New Students,

Welcome to the Catholic University of America! We are so happy that you have joined us as a part of our community. 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 http://nest.catholic.edu. If you're looking to join a student organization be sure to come to Fall Festival on Tuesday, September 4th from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. for free food, great entertainment, and a student involvement fair. Also don't forget about Freshman Retreat coming up the weekend of September 7-9. Signup on the Campus Ministry website at http://ministry.catholic.edu

For the next few weeks if you have any questions you can still get a great deal of helpful resources on the Orientation Guide in the Catholic University App. In addition to the app, our staff is here to help you in your Catholic University experience. Please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance via phone at 202-319-5627 or via e-mail at cua-orientation@cua.edu.


We look forward to seeing you around campus!


Sincerely,
Steve Kreider
Director of Campus Activities
