What drew you to Washington, D.C. and Catholic University?
I was looking for a different city than what I was used to. Washington D.C. has culture, fun, and history. Catholic University is a dream campus. We have the most beautiful campus paired with stellar people and close access to the heart of D.C.

What makes Catholic University different than other colleges and universities?
Catholic University is a unique place. We have top-notch majors and the most wonderful professors. Our students are passionate and friendly. On campus you will always see a smiling face and students who are wanting to share their activities with you. When you are on campus, you feel at home.

What is D.C.'s best kept secret?
The amount of festivals and parades. From food festivals like Truckeroo, cultural parades like Chinese New Year in Chinatown, or something very unique to D.C., like the Cherry Blossom Festival, there's a lot to do in this city.

Where is your favorite place to dine in D.C.?
The Irish Channel (500 H St NW, Washington, DC 20001)
