Community with Brothers and Sisters in Christ

At University of Northwestern, you’ll experience a unique community that fosters spiritual and social growth. By attending classes, worshipping in chapel, sharing meals, and living side by side with fellow believers, you will develop friendships that last a lifetime. You’ll find lots of opportunities to make life-long friends and create lasting memories. What you do is up to you! You can join in festive homecoming activities, attend or participate in our Broadway-quality plays, grow your faith with a bible study or small group, or take part in an exciting sports event. There is never a dull moment on campus! You can also choose from a wide variety of clubs, such as Nordic Skiing, Pro-Life Outreach, or Ultimate Frisbee. Don’t see a club you’re interested in? Grab a couple of friends and make your own club. No matter who you are or what you are doing on campus, your time here will be unforgettable. Just ask our thousands of alums!

At Northwestern, the idea of community, especially Christ-centered community, means there is a lot more togetherness in the engineering program. At least once or twice a day we are spending time together at the student center doing homework. When you’re doing something you all love, even if it is homework, even if it’s numerical analysis and thermodynamics, it’s still really cool to do [all of it] together in a community.
