Catholic Student Union

Mission Statement

On CSU, we acknowledge that none of us have it all together.  We'd just like to grow into our very best selves, and we know we have a better chance if we do it together!  CSU is part of the great community at the CSC.  Membership is open to all undergraduate students, regardless of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, ability, language proficiency and/or preference.

We provide different types of spiritual, social, and service opportunities ranging from casual hangouts at the Catholic Student Center to fun excursions off campus. Our events are aimed to help students explore and deepen their faith, build a community of love, and support the formation of lifelong friendships!

All are welcome at our events, members and non-members, Catholics and non-Catholics!

CSU Programs

The Catholic Student Union helps organize and run:

CSC Ambassadors- CSC Ambassadors intentionally pursue relationships with our fellow WashU students, and to invite them to share in the life of the Catholic Student Center (CSC). Through student outreach, Ambassadors represent the CSC, and participate in the CSC’s mission of creating a community of hospitality by going out of our way to develop relationships with all students who may one day walk through the CSC’s doors. CSC Ambassadors walk to Mass from the South 40 with anyone who wants to join, promote the CSC’s programs and values, and most importantly, get to know other students! If you’re interested in being part of Welcome Team, email Audrey at .
