Greetings from your Alumni Class Committee and the Catholic University Alumni Association! Can you believe it has been 40 years since we graduated from CUA? This year, Cardinal Weekend is set for Friday, Oct. 17, through Sunday, Oct. 19. Get in touch with your college friends and classmates and plan to come back to campus for a weekend of memories and fun new times together!
In addition to the party you Alumni Class Committee has planned for the Saturday of Homecoming, there is plenty to see and do during Reunion weekend including:
