School Specific Boards > Catholic University of America

One L next year

(1/4) > >>

JManning:
Any others on this board or are these child boards practically pointless?  Are any of you planning on living in the graduate dorms? near campus? some other neighborhood?

I hope I'm not the only loser who checks this thing.

rhapsody:
You're not!   :D

I'll be a 1L this fall at Catholic as well.  I actually just spent the afternoon there today, just walking around the law school building (hadn't visited before).  I spent about an hour talking with a 2004 graduate who was working at the library desk... she was quite enthusiastic about Catholic and the community there compared to other D.C. schools.

I won't be living on campus; I'll be commuting from Howard County, as we (my husband and I) already have a house there close to his work.

Where are you from?

JManning:
I'm from Chciago and will be driving through the night after work on Thursday to make it to admitted student's weekend.  I'm strongly considering living in the dorms first semester so I could get my bearings, find an apartment, etc.. instead of worrying about all that over the summer.  We'll see though.  I'm very excited about the Catholic, once I graduate it will be my total years in Catholic schooling to 19!

rhapsody:
Wow, 19 years in Catholic schools?! :o  I have never attended one before so it was a little strange for me to walk around the classrooms the other day and see Jesus on the cross everywhere.  I guess it is just a different focus from what I'm used to. ;)

I don't know where all the good places to live are off-campus, but a friend of mine just got her master's from Catholic last spring, and she shared a house with other students in Hyattsville.  I could ask her for more info if that would be helpful to you.

JManning:
Where is Hyattsville?  I was thinking of living somewhere in the city; afterall, I am only 22 and still single.
