Dear New Students,
Orientation is almost here! In just a few short weeks you will be making the journey to Washington, D.C. to join us here at The Catholic University of America. Many of you are probably starting to get a little nervous, the reality is setting in...you are going to college! To get you started we have Orientation: Doors Opening, a program designed to acclimate you to life in college. With faculty, staff, and students, Catholic University comes together to welcome you, the Class of 2017 and transfer students.
You will meet many people during your first four days at Catholic. Some of the first students you will meet are your Orientation Advisers. This group of 80 are experienced Catholic University students selected soley to guide you during Orientation and throughout your time here at CUA. They are a valuable resource during Orientation and your first year at Catholic University. Your advisers will be with you every step of Orientation, answering questions, calming your nerves, and welcoming you to CUA.
The best advice we can give you is to not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone! Use Orientation as the stepping stone to making the most of your college career. Make new friends, try new things, and take interesting classes. The world is full of open doors. Orientation will be a fun, energetic, upbeat, jam-packed four days full of all the information you need to start you off at Catholic University. We encourage you to attend as many sessions as possible, learn as much as possible, and of course have fun!
We cannot wait to see you on August 22nd! We hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!
