  • Hospitality

    Community dinner

    Hospitality is about providing a sense of welcome to whomever walks through our door. It’s not an invitation to assimilate, but rather an embrace that invites people to come as they are. At the CA, we provide an inclusive, fun and supportive space that is a home away from home for students.

  • Faith & Exploration

    Prayer and meditation room

    Faith Exploration is about digging into what it means to call ourselves Christians, followers of Jesus Christ. It means processing things being learned, figuring out how other aspects of out lives connect with our faith, and growing in our understanding of how to live this faith out on a daily basis, and growing in our knowledge of Scripture.

  • Service & Advocacy

    Mentoring program service day

    Service and Advocacy is about living out God’s call to participate in Kingdom work, to actively seek to help bring about the kingdom of God here on earth. It is about being both a voice for the voiceless, and listening to those who are voiceless so we can learn what it is they have to say. It is about recognizing our place of privilege, and doing something to help make things a little more equal.

  • "A Little Bit Of Music"

    During Penn's Year of Sound, music has been a popular topic on campus. As someone who grew up listening to and playing music, I truly believe that music is incredibly powerful, and sometimes can speak in ways words cannot.
