Get to know yourself at Catholic University, a community founded in friendship, faith through our Campus Ministry, unconditional support and heart. Where lifelong bonds are made and where defining moments happen every day.

With every on-campus event, student production, club meeting and service activity, you have the opportunity to investigate and discover unknown passions and hidden talents. Each and every time, waking you up a little bit more to who you are — who you want to be.

We have arts-specific student organizations, such as the CenterStage Theater Company, Pure Alignment Dance Group, and Redline and Take Note a cappella groups. All students can also audition for our main-stage opera, drama and musical theatre productions, and can join the Chamber Choir, University Singers, CUA Symphony Orchestra, and CUA Wind Ensemble.
