What makes Catholic University different than other colleges and universities?
Every time I speak to students on campus, I am so impressed by how involved Catholic University students are in community service and volunteering. There are numerous opportunities for our students to give back! Find out more about service at C.U. today!
What drew you to Washington, D.C. and Catholic University?
I have worked in college admissions for nearly three decades. In that time, I have worked at several Catholic institutions. I joined Catholic University because I believe the commitment to service, student engagement, academic opportunities, and vibrant urban experience is unparalleled at other Catholic schools.
Advice to anyone who is applying?
I always encourage prospective students to take time writing their essay. This narrative is a wonderful opportunity for students to truly showcase who they are and what makes them tick. The essay certainly shows us a student's ability to create a cogent and well-written piece of writing, but more importantly, it provides the admission reader with a better understanding of the applicant as a whole.
