What Campus Ministry Means to Me
No one turned me away because my faith was shaky. Instead, they encouraged me to ask questions so I could develop my faith. I became more and more involved, until now, I can no longer imagine my life without ULC.

What I especially love about ULC are the many opportunities for student leadership. At my church at home, I often feel as if I am still considered a ‘young adult’ rather than a potential congregational leader.
Last year I became a member at ULC, signifying my personal investment at this church. ULC at Northwestern and the Lutheran faith have become an important part of my identity.
Since finding ULC, I have realized what strong connections college students can make with each other based upon their commitment to the church and especially to service work. ULC has taught me what it means to be a leader in a congregation.
My understanding of worship, the Bible, service to others, stewardship, the ELCA, my place in the church as a member and leader, and much more have changed and grown because of my time at ULC.
Campus ministry, especially one as well-reputed as University Lutheran Church, plants countless seeds of devotion and service into our hearts, our cores.
I am so glad I came to ULC, since it has been a place for me to heal, rediscover the meaning of church, and reconnect with God.
Through my work as a peer minister, I have been able to fully understand what kind of a resource we can be for other students, and I truly feel that Northwestern is blessed to have a place like ULC.
