Headed to college?

Start here!

Chi Alpha is a movement of college students following Jesus together. We’re here to help you grow in your faith as a student here in the Pacific Northwest. Campus life is full of opportunites and choices, and we think the best place to start is to find a vital Christian community near you.

That's what this page is all about. Click below, and we'll fill you in on what's happening on your campus this year!

Who are we?

Ask a student and they'll say this: we're a community. Chi Alpha is a network of students on 300 campuses across the United States. At heart we’re not just an organization; we are the Church on campus. Our groups meet every week to worship, enjoy life, and grow together in knowing Jesus. We take our name from 2 Corinthians 5:20:

We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God.

We would love to have you join us! Bring your enthusiasm and your questions, your faith and your fears, your gifts and your weaknesses. We’d love to be part of your life while you pursue a degree! Our community always has room.

Is there a Chi Alpha group on my campus?

Our vision is to see students worshipping God and gathering on every campus. If you didn't see your college or university listed above, here are some other options:

  1. Check the map — just in case.

  2. Try chialpha.com — if your campus is outside the Pacific Northwest. There are over 270 Chi Alpha ministries in the USA!

  3. If you are studying in Washington, Idaho, or Oregon — and you are motivated to see a ministry on your campus — you could start one! Please contact our Area director, Dan Guenther, about opening a student-led Chi Alpha group.
