As the Brookland nights begin to cool, and the leaves begin to turn, it can only mean one thing – CUA homecoming is around the corner! One of the cool things about Brookland is the Catholic U alumni who discovered our neighborhood while in college and decided to make it their home after graduation. Homecoming is always a special time to reconnect with your alma mater and reminisce with current students, friends, and fellow alums. This year CUA’s homecoming will be held on Thursday September 27 – Sunday September 29th and there are a ton of activities in store. From the Catholic U website, here is an updated list of events:
