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!
Since I’ve moved in, I have developed such a strong support group through this amazing group of people who are always willing to lift each other up in Christ. Living here constantly encourages my personal walk with the Lord as we challenge each other to grow spiritually and point each other to God during hard times. I could not imagine facing the challenges of college without the deep friendships that I’ve been able to develop at UCU.
You will become a part of a community of 40+ Christian young men and women when you move into UCU. It's a wonderful community 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 build 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!
Making the choice to live at UCU has easily been one of the best decisions I've ever made. It is my hope that the members of UCU are challenged to live out their faith as they start a new chapter of their life, go on crazy adventures with each other, and form life-long friendships. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to lead this group of women and I look forward to seeing how God works in and through our house!
