Testimonials

Over the past five years, College Options Foundation has conducted the JROTC Leadership and Academic Bowl Championship at Catholic University. I truly appreciate all that the Events and Conference Services staff does to help make our event a success each year. Jacques and his team assist us with every aspect of the multi-faceted program. From an evening social event for 400 high school students to a reception for education and military leadership, they support all of our catering, audio/visual, event space and housing needs. We look forward to returning to their beautiful campus each year!

"Working with the Office of Events and Conference Services at The Catholic University of America is seamlessly organized at every step. From the very first phone call they are so helpful and think of every little detail to the time of the conference itself when they are immediately responsive and put out fires before your guests even know they exist."
