        Continuing EducationYYI decided after 38 years of finishing school I wanted to return and get my degree. I am so grateful that I chose this university. They were kind and understood my fears and concerns. They not only give 100% to the younger students but to those of us who want to continue our education.

        BE A FIGHTING CARDINALYYCUA was one of the best expierences in my life. If i could go back I would. CUA gives every student a valuable moral compass in the class they provide and the ethics that they teach. I would highly recommend attend CUA for its convince to the METRO and city life. It is also I great place to find a job after you graduate.
