Small Group Gatherings

Our normal group programming pauses once the semester ends. If you want to connect with us this summer, join us for Church Unbound!

Our small group gatherings are a great way to make the huge campus smaller and make meaningful friendships with other UW-Madison students. We offer a mix of staff- and student-led gatherings every semester. The list emerges from what the community is interested in, which means there will always be a gathering for you!

Some gatherings happen every week, while others happen less frequently. Check the tabs below for details!

Each month, we host dinners at Pres House for BIPOC students at UW-Madison. BIPOC Faith Dinners are open to BIPOC folks from all religious, spiritual, or cultural traditions, as well as those who do not claim any such tradition. We gather, eat, laugh, and connect over our shared experiences as BIPOC folks on a predominately white campus!

“What’s Next?” is a gathering for graduating students to discuss topics specific to this life stage such as changing relationships, job search, grad school, finances, finding new community, saying goodbye, and more.
