Welcome New Students
Maybe you’re arriving in Madison as a first-year student. Maybe you’re transferring from another school. Maybe you’re starting a graduate program. Or maybe you just feel like your first year in college didn’t really count. No matter what kind of new student you are, welcome! We’d love to connect with you; reach out using our contact form, or email a staff member directly.
Stay tuned throughout the summer as we release more details about our fall kickoff events. For now, check out some resources from previous years below. If you get to Madison early, join us at Pres House on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 for Church Unbound!
Here are some easy ways to stay up to speed on what’s happening in the Pres House community:
- Sign up for texts. Text “preshouse” to (844) 947-0722. We’ll send you info about worship, small groups, events, and more.
- Follow us on social media. We’re on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Rumor has it that a Pres House TikTok is in the works…
- Subscribe to our weekly email.
