What drew you to Washington, D.C. and Catholic University?
Washington, D.C. is the best city in the country for anyone who thinks they wouldn't want to live in a city setting. You get all the benefits of a city with a small town feel. There are no skyscrapers in D.C. Instead, there is an amazing community feel everywhere you go. Unique neighborhoods, tons of bike lanes, and every cuisine imaginable made D.C. (and Catholic University) an easy place to love!

What is your favorite thing to do in D.C.?
Using Capital Bikeshare to explore the city. For just $8 a month students can pick up and drop off bikes at docking stations all over the city. There is even a dock conveniently located on campus!

What is D.C.'s best kept secret?
The water taxi - very fun, inexpensive, and will bring you to places like Georgetown, The Wharf, Old Town Alexandria, and National Harbor, MD!

Where is your favorite place to dine in D.C.?
Agua 301 in Navy Yard - dinner with a water view! (301 Water St SE, Washington, DC 20003)
