Letter from our President
Hi, welcome to UCU - I’m so glad that you’re here! Our house is located on the corner of 16th and 47th, a short walk from the University of Washington. It is an amazing house of eighteen godly, supportive, and fun-loving young women!
The moment I moved into UCU, I could recognize how special it was. My expectations were automatically exceeded with how welcoming and kind everyone was! Since moving in, I have been able to create amazing relationships with my fellow housemates, and most importantly I have been able to grow in my relationship with the Lord. I have been able to navigate the demands of college with abundant support from the wonderful friends I have here.
UCU is an amazing community of 40+ Christian young men and women that attend the University of Washington. It's a wonderful environment where we encourage and challenge each other in our faith through Monday Night Bible Study, various small groups, and wonderful conversations. We also enjoy having fun movie nights, spontaneous outings, or pulling house pranks on each other!
On any given day, you can find members of both houses doing homework or studying together, practicing music, watching movies in the basements, or chatting with our lovely cook, Kate, in the kitchen. The officers of UCU also organize several weekend social events throughout the year like our Christmas party, Valentines Dinners, girls’ nights, and men’s and women’s socials.
Our daily reminders to live for Christ builds a strong foundation for a loving God-centered community at the University of Washington. We are also involved in the larger UW community through participation in intramural sports, campus clubs, Husky games, on/off-campus jobs, outreach projects, and a host of other school-related activities.
While extracurricular activities are abundant, academics remain a top priority for our house. Every quarter, we strive to maintain a high overall GPA, which often makes for a friendly competition between the Men’s and Women’s houses! Additionally, because many residents take similar class prerequisites, help is readily available. Guidance through different classes often helps to relieve the stresses students experience through the rigorous UW courses. UCUers are genuinely happy to help each other with homework or other projects and are a great resource!
Living at UCU is definitely one of the most wonderful parts about my college experience. It has helped me stay firm in my faith as well as taught me many important life lessons. It is my hope that the Lord would continue to use UCU as a place where people can freely live out their faith and build life-long friendships with those around them. It is an honor and privilege to help lead our house in a way that looks to the Lord in all circumstances. I am excited to continue watching the many different ways that God works in and through our house!
