WASHINGTON – The Catholic University of America football team has announced its summer visit day for rising seniors on Friday, July 28th at 11 a.m. Prospective student-athletes will have a chance to come to campus, attend Catholic Admissions' information sessions, tour the University, visit the athletics facility and find out first-hand about the Catholic football program.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Head coach Mike Gutelius and staff will be on hand to meet all potential Cardinals and spend time answering any questions they and their families may have.
Rising seniors will hear from professors and other leaders on campus about the unique opportunities offered at one of America's oldest and most respected research universities while also having a chance to find out about Catholic's distinctive style of play and the challenge of being a leader in the rejuvenation of a Championship program.
Tours will be directed throughout the DuFour Athletic Center and the training facilities.
Catholic boasts a new weight room that was updated last summer with new, state-of-art equipment and racks being added to the redesigned room. Additionally, Catholic opened its new state-of-the-art turf football field this past season – which was part of a series of football-related facility renovations totaling about $2 million over the last two years.
Additionally, the Cardinals will enjoy its first season in the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) in 2017, the first year of the league's football existence.
About Catholic University:
Located in Washington, D.C. and only three miles from Capitol Hill, students can access the city directly through the Metro transportation system and by using CUA's own Metro stop right here on campus. Catholic offers over 80 majors across nine undergraduate schools, varying from a liberal arts curriculum in the School of Arts and Sciences to nationally recognized pre-professional programs such as engineering, nursing and architecture to name a few.
There are roughly 3,500 undergraduate students along with 3,000 graduate students, which makes Catholic a perfect mid-size university. Students experience small class sizes and a student/faculty ratio of 8:1. Outside of the classroom, the Career Services Office begins working with students as early as their first year to set a strong foundation to prepare them for internships and ultimately a long-lasting career. Most students have completed at least one internship before their senior year. In fact, last year 58% of freshman through juniors held an internship. In addition, becoming a Cardinal affords you access to excellent career opportunities. Through the Hire a Cardinal job forum, over 1,600 employers posted nearly 5,000 job and internship opportunities within 166 separate industries!
