The Catholic University of America

Welcome New Students!

Dear New Students,

Welcome to CUA! We are so happy you have joined us as part of the class of 2018 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 Extended throughout the first six weeks, through October 4, 2014. You are expected to attend at least 12 events, 2 on each color line, throughout the first six weeks. You can track your completion of this challenge through your OX farecard on The Nest. To access your farecard online go to and click on the "Login" link on the upper right hand side of the screen. Your login is your CUA network login and password. Attendance at 12 events will allow you to enter to win one of the amazing prize packages. A detailed PDF version of the Orientation Extended 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!
