2010 Alumni Reception


There is no better testimony to the value of CUA's Honors Program than the achievement of its alumni. After graduating with Honors, our alumni go on to pursue studies at the nation's top graduate and professional schools. Others have embarked on their careers of choice after graduation, becoming models of service and outreach to their communities.

Alumni, please keep in touch! We welcome updates on your careers and contact information. Please feel free to email us at any time.
