In his reading he spoke with such passion and conviction that I knew CUA was the only school where I could study literature.                                    – Caroline, Class of 2020, English

  7. “I chose to come to Catholic University because of two things: Gibbons Hall looks like Hogwarts from the Harry Potter series and I saw a group of sisters playing Frisbee on the Basilica Lawn.
