Catholic Studies is about the whole human person. Community and friendship are an essential part of your university experience and Catholic Studies in particular. To that end, we organize a number of events over the course of an academic year, some of which are unique to a particular semester, and a number of which we return to year after year. These latter events constitute Traditions in the Department of Catholic Studies. We hope that you may join us for some of these activities!

Catholica Trips

Three students walk tour the cathedral, walking by an ornate side altar and crucifix.

Advent Party

Six students around a high-top table raise their glasses. An electric candle glows in a centerpiece in celebration of the First Sunday of Advent.

Lenten Fish Fry

Students share a meal of fish, mac & cheese, and coleslaw during the season of Lent.

Graduation Luncheon

Two students and the department chair smile at the camera at the lunch for graduating seniors.
