CUA to Host Alumni Networking Reception at Capitol Visitor Center

The Catholic University of America will host a networking reception Monday, March 30, at Washington, D.C.'s new Capitol Visitor Center for alumni to connect with classmates working on Capitol Hill and in the federal government.

The reception will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. The visitor center - the new main entrance to the U.S. Capitol - is located below the East Plaza of the Capitol between Constitution and Independence avenues.

"We're excited to offer our alums this opportunity to catch up with their Catholic University friends working in politics and government," said Marion Gosney, CUA's director of alumni relations. "The reception will provide networking opportunities that could lead to career connections for our alums."

Sponsored by the alumni relations offices of Catholic University and CUA's Columbus School of Law, the reception is free for Catholic University alumni. For more information, call 202-319-5608 or visit
