The Catholic Student Center at Washington University is a house of formation and a community of hospitality to students of all faiths.
Our dream is that every student who encounters the Catholic Student Center community feels known, loved, and cared for—so they are more capable of giving and receiving love. We want our students to leave here healthier, happier, and holier than they came.
“The CSC had the biggest impact on my faith and gave me a great group of people to be around.”
Andrew Wessel, Class of 2021,
The CSC has been a home away from home for me. I feel so incredibly loved and supported while I am here. Whether it is studying between classes, Sunday mass, service trips, or socializing, the CSC has always been able to present me new opportunities to grow in faith and life.
Kyle Nicholson, Class of '20
Finding this community was so important to me because, as a result, I now have some of the closest friendships that I have ever had and am surrounded by people I know will support me through almost anything.
Alexis Pinzon, Class of '20
The CSC has been, for me, a place to experience deeper relationships and more substantial conversations. I’ve joined an amazing community here that has become a family from which I can expect challenge and support as well as constant playful teasing.
Seth Akakpo-Lado, Class of '19
“For me, the CSC has always been a warm and welcoming community that has helped me grow in friendship and faith! Several of the CSC’s programs, including the Young Catholic Scholars program, the Catholic Leadership and Development program, SALT, and Gratia Plena have helped me better understand the role faith can play in my personal life, academia, and in the St. Louis community. From weekly Mass to its CORE Bible study groups to just a quiet space, the CSC has so much to offer. I am grateful for my time here and hope other students will find a home away from home at the CSC.”
