It's more than a place to hang out between classes — it's a community. We offer plenty of options for a vibrant college experience. There are events every week: performing arts, sporting events, lectures, fundraisers, service days, fairs, retreats, dances, game nights, rock concerts, and more.
Get on the field or cheer on your classmates. We have 25 Division III teams as well as club and intramural sports. Or hop on the Metro for a Nationals, Redskins, Wizards, Capitals, United, or Mystics game.
Interested in art, drama, or music? We have an art gallery as well as theatre and music venues. Multiple student organizations are dedicated to the arts. Off campus, museums, theaters, concert halls, and galleries are all just minutes away via Metro.
We welcome students of all religious backgrounds. Campus Ministry sponsors service opportunities and programs and events, such as retreats, that appeal to students of all faiths. As a community, we answer the call to service.
Hop on the Metro — at the Brookland/CUA stop — and you’ll be at a museum or baseball game or a flea market in minutes. Before you know it, the nation’s capital will feel like home.
