Why did you choose The Catholic University of America?

I chose to attend CUA because of its amazing location and the amount of learning opportunities inside and outside of the campus. I felt I would be able to achieve the most if I went to CUA. I also felt like I could fit in. I believe I can find a good group of people I can call my friends because of the atmosphere at CUA. To me, I felt at home.
