Welcome to Cal!

To all new students, welcome to Cal! Congratulations on getting admitted. Now that you're here, that means a few things:

You are now officially Cal Bears.

Good luck! But it's okay...

At least you're better off than the engineers.

We're just kidding about the choose none. It's true that college can be tough, but you got into Cal for a reason so we're sure you'll at least graduate, and hopefully more than that.

College is a unique opportunity to consider the big questions about life: Why am I here? What is my life going to be about? Our answers to these questions define our priorities and choices, and we all have an opinion, whether we've had a chance to think about it or not. So if we have one advice to give it's this: Don't make your time here be just about school, but find some likeminded people who will pursue answers to these bigger questions with you. Along the way, have a lot of fun, eat a lot of food, and make lifelong friends. That's what we try to do here at Koinonia.

Koinonia is a campus Christian fellowship at UC Berkeley. We meet during the week to share about life, what's been happening in our lives. We also meet to learn about God through reading his Word and meeting for Bible Studies. Whether you're a Christian or not, whether you've been to church all your life or never stepped foot in one, you have place at the table here. Come join us! We'd love to have you here.
