Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)

FCA is a student led, on-campus group that meets once a week, on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. usually in the Hogan Center, Art Smith Arena except for the first Tuesday of the month when we meet in Dunning Memorial Chapel, to grow together in our walk with Christ. We welcome anyone and everyone even though we have “athletes” in our title. We have students or guest speakers give messages, share their testimony, or whatever is on their heart. At the end of the year we take a mission trip down to Florida for a week and work with an organization called Parker Street Ministries.

Small Groups

Prayer and Meditation

An interfaith prayer and meditation room is located at the rear of the Chapel balcony. There are also small rooms downstairs for prayer and study from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.


Hillel is a national Jewish student organization dedicated to improving the lives of Jewish students on campus through education and building community.
