Julia Englert is an International Business student from Shawnee, KS. Julia shares why she chose to attend Catholic University and the Busch School, and what advice she has for prospective students.

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

"My top three reasons for choosing Catholic University and the Busch School were the community, the location, and the ability to continue my Catholic education. Ever since I first stepped onto Catholic's campus, I have felt like I was home because everyone in the community is so welcoming and friendly. Both the students and faculty are simply incredible. I also knew there would never be a dull moment living in Washington, DC. There is always something happening in the city that I can experience, and there are so many opportunities available to me that I would not have gotten somewhere else. Finally, I loved the ability to continue my Catholic education, applying my faith to the principles of business and learning how to be a force for good for others."

What's been your favorite part of being a student at Catholic University?

"My favorite part about being a student at Catholic has been all of the opportunities I have had. Through the Busch School, I've been lucky enough to meet and build relationships with some incredible people who have provided me with valuable knowledge and various opportunities to grow. I have also had the opportunity to get involved on campus through things like Major Mentors and Ambassador programs both within the Busch School and the greater University."

What advice would you give to prospective students?

"I would tell prospective students to get involved, be open to experiencing new things, and ask questions. You never know who you might meet or what you might learn!"
