As an undergraduate at NCU, you’ll benefit from a highly personal educational experience led by truly extraordinary faculty. In classrooms that average only 16 students, and through an array of internship opportunities, you’ll learn how to think critically, communicate effectively and work collaboratively as you answer God’s call in your life.
Be a Follower of Christ
Undergraduate students explore, discover and grow within the context of a Christ-centered community. Immersed in all aspects of the NCU experience, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in signature ministry and service programming designed to foster your spiritual formation.
During the week, students have the chance to experience God through scripture, praise, and worship. Chapel takes on many glorifying forms, from heartfelt songs to inspiring messages from faculty, students and local pastors sharing words of faith and service.
Be a Leader
Beacons put their faith into action—sharing God’s love in real ways within our city and world.
NCU students, faculty and staff work with numerous service organizations such as St. Vincent DePaul, Eugene Mission, Hosea Youth Ministry and Food for Lane County. Faith will be strengthened through programs like Night of Prayer, The Touch Project, Embrace the City Day, and Spiritual Formation week. In addition, you’ll have an opportunity to participate in annual mission trips. Past missions have included Seattle, San Francisco, Mexico, Africa, Romania, and Cambodia.
Be a member
Whether through campus activities, student leadership, athletics or just hanging out in your residence hall, you will be making friends who will be part of your life forever.

An array of special events will also keep you busy including Beacon Madness, Homecoming, trips to watch the Portland Trail Blazers and Timbers, day hikes, white water rafting, and intramural sports.
