Why did you choose to attend Catholic University and the Busch School?

"I fell in love with the beautiful campus located in our nation's capital, just a few metro stops away from downtown. I also love the mission of the Busch School, to be a force for good, as well as the dedication of professors to their students. It helps to have smaller class sizes and the ability to form connections with professors and administration."

"I like that I'm never bored, whether it's on-campus events hosted by Program Board or the ability to hop on a metro and be at the monuments in 15 minutes. There's endless things to do in my free time, but I also have the support necessary to succeed academically."

What advice would you give to prospective students?

"Don't be afraid to put yourself out there, meet new people, and take every opportunity that is presented to you."
