We invite all admitted Early Decision and Early Action students to join us for Cardinal Preview Day. It’s an exciting opportunity for you to take a fresh look at Catholic — this time as a member of our Class of 2023!

Preview Day enables our newest Cardinals to engage in an event that emphasizes all our community has to offer you. Beginning with a welcome in the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, you’ll have the opportunity to branch out into your individual schools to meet with professors and future classmates alike, attend informational sessions about campus life, and explore in-depth the different aspects that make Catholic University the best place for you.

Just as important is the opportunity you’ll have to meet other future Cardinals, as you and your classmates socialize and tour campus together. It’s your chance to get a first look at how you’ll become an integral part of our community, and what Catholic University will give back to you.
