I recently got an offer to do a year abroad in America, specifically in Washington DC at the catholic university of America.
Just wondering if anyone has any insight of what it’s like as a Brit?
I am not Catholic, so will this be a problem?
I am also quite an outdoorsy person, I enjoy sailing, surfing, rock climbing, skiing, travelling etc.
Would this uni suit me?
If anyone knows what the uni is like for engineering and what the student life is like any insight would be much appreciated!
Thanks!

Nobody here is going to have any idea about this one, very niche, university. Your best bet is to Google it and research it yourself.

Agree, I’ve never heard of it myself. Maybe check out the US version of student room: College Confidential. Might be worth starting a thread there. GL

I looked at this school only very briefly in my college search. From what I gathered CUA takes its conservative Catholic identity much seriously than most Catholic colleges. If I recall correctly, around 80-90% of students are Catholic so you won't be the only non-Catholic but the vast majority of students will be. And there are things like daily masses on campus, Catholic service organisations, and Catholic iconography on campus (don't know about CUA but most of the Catholic schools I looked at had crucifixes in classrooms and things like that). It's up to you whether you're up for that.

But I'm not a student at CUA nor have I toured campus or anything so your best bet is to do research yourself as others have mentioned. Here are a couple links to get you started.
Princeton Review - https://www.princetonreview.com/coll...merica-1022877
Niche - https://www.niche.com/colleges/the-c...ty-of-america/

Are there any other US universities you have the option to study abroad at or is it just CUA?
