Saying Farewell to John Paul II
The late pope’s relationship with Catholic University goes back to 1976, two years before he became the head of the Church. His passing revealed a depth of love for him among today’s students and faculty. See story.
Summer Events Lineup
Numerous groups are scheduled to hold meetings at CUA this summer. In addition to the many summer courses that will be offered by the university, CUA students will be traveling to Brazil, Jordan and Panama on academic or service-related trips. See story.
Let Us Now Praise Great Scholars
Appreciation can change a life, and for university deans and faculty — including Fathers Moloney, Di Lella and Jensen — one of the most tangible forms of appreciation is receiving a Festschrift. See story.
Father O’Connell talks about the media focus on Catholic University, occasioned by the passing of Pope John Paul II, and about Pope Benedict XVI’s ties to CUA. He also addresses upcoming events and developments. See the president’s column.
Imagine a Revitalized Brookland
Imagine the transformation of Brookland if a team of architects redesigned the heart of the neighborhood. In fact, that redesigning has actually been carried out by 12 architecture students and their professors, with input from Brookland residents and government officials. See story.
