"My favorite part of being a student at Catholic University is constantly seeing my friends on my way to classes, work, internships, etc."
What advice would you give to prospective students?
"Have a list of the more important characteristics that you are looking for in a University (for example: location, major, enrollment size etc) and a list of some smaller characteristics that you're looking for (for example: free printing, free laundry, a Chick-Fil-A on campus, etc). It's important to have a list of the things that you are looking for when you go on college tours, so that you are coming in knowing what you want and you are less likely to settle. Good luck during the process; it's worth it!"
