Catholic University is a great place to hone your skills as a leader. Early in his freshman year, Tom Scalfaro started attending campus events. “I met tons of people from all over campus who encouraged me to run for Program Board,” a student-run organization that plans events. He won. “I organized the 12 days of Christmas, Late Night Breakfast, CUA Nite Live, and more. It was amazing.” The next year, Tom became a resident assistant. As a junior he became a House minister, “helping student ministers and holding cool events, on campus and off campus, too.”
