New Students

Welcome to Seattle and to the University of Washington! As a community of Christian graduate students at the UW, we’d love to meet you.

Everyone knows that you need brains and emotional brawn to be able to survive grad school, but a lesser known but equally important fact is that you need community. And if you’re a Christian, you need Christian community. As Christians who can relate to what you face in the lab, library and classroom, we’d love to walk with you through these years of grad school.

How can you get involved with Graduate Christian Fellowship?

Have our pastoral staff, Ashley or Geoff, take you out to coffee.

Join a small group.

Attend an event.

Sign up for our mailing list. (Click here or send your email to and ask to be added to the mailing list)

Ask to join our private Facebook group, which is where we do most of our communicating about events and activities.

Please don’t hesitate to email us if you have questions about who we are, what we do, or why we meet. We are excited that you are here and we hope to have the opportunity to get to know you. God’s peace to you as you begin your journey through grad school.
