What do our fellows say about the program?



“Being part of the Upper House Fellows Program has given me a better awareness of the interrelationship between my life as a Christian and my path to an academic profession. I now have a deeper understanding of how serving Jesus Christ is reflected through my career and vocation.” 

 —Helen, Graduate Student, Pharmacy 



“The Upper House Fellows Program has introduced me to so many wonderful people with whom I have had the opportunity to engage in important ideas as we all strive together to be better followers of Christ in both the grand scheme and small particularities of our lives. Great company, great food, and great conversation are always to be expected at an Upper House Fellows meeting.” 

 —Sean, Undergraduate, History & English 



“For me, being part of the Fellows Program has given me the opportunity to connect with other artists and creative people who are seeking to find their unique place in God’s kingdom. What does it mean to create beauty in a fallen world? How can our art embody some aspect of grace and truth? These are hard questions that I’m so thankful for the space to ponder with other believers!”   

Emily, Recent Graduate, Film & Media Studies 



“I’ve had so many enriching discussions in my fellows track this year. Everyone is so accommodating and open to considering different views from their own. The Upper House Fellows Program has been a wonderful community to grow and live out my faith.”  

Faith, Undergraduate, Data Science & Economics 




“One of the things I appreciate most about the Upper House Fellows Program is the opportunity it provides for interdisciplinary connection and learning. As a graduate student in a STEM setting, the opportunity to think about and discuss topics like biblical history and the intersections of art and faith with various STEM and non-STEM voices has been quite refreshing.”  

Ethan, Graduate Student, Geoscience 



“The Upper House Fellows Program allowed me to be a part of a community that loves God, serves its neighbor, and wields its passion as a means of redemption here on earth. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to expand their understanding of what it means to be an agent of change as Christ’s witnesses whether through art, theology, or your personal vocation!”  

Hannah, Recent graduate, Film Studies & Creative Writing

“If you are not interested in growing in your faith and meeting new people interested in doing the same, then this program is NOT for you.
