Thursday Nights, 7pm in St. Paul's Chapel
Join us every Thursday night for a rejuvenating evening of worship and communion. Each week, InterVarsity comes together to take part in music and hear the week's message. Ignite is where real community-building happens, and it wouldn't be complete without you.

LaFe Latinx Fellowship

Exploring what it means to be Latinx through the lens of Christ
Latinidad's fusion of rich African, European, and indigenous cultures can bring about the feeling of "ni de aqui ni de alla," not of here or there. We hope that La Fe will be a place where Latinx students can meet and feel comfortable discussing the tensions and joys that come along with our ethnic identities and our walk with God. Email lafe@columbiaivcf.org to learn more.

Life Groups

More Than Just a Bible Study Group
Life Groups are small groups of students who wish to better understand who God is and live life together. Life Groups learn about God through reading and discussing the Bible together, but also come together to study, play sports, cook, and much more. Sign up here, and we'll plug you into a Life Group right away.

Fall Retreat

Weekend of September 16—18
Missing nature? Join InterVarsity on a weekend retreat in the Poconos from September 16—18. Build new relationships, learn more about God, and have a great time in the beautiful Pennsylvania mountains all for $30. You read that right: travel, lodging, and food is included in that figure. Learn more on our Facebook event page.

InterVarsity In Your Own Words

InterVarsity isn't like any other campus organization. Hear from these IV members to find out why.

InterVarsity means always having a friend to share a meal with.


IV is a Christ-centered community, united in brokenness and love.


InterVarsity means family and family means caring no matter what.


InterVarsity is my hometown and birthplace—where I met Jesus.

InterVarsity is my family away from home. They've helped me feel that I belong on this campus. The people in IV have taught me that I'm loved as I am—talents and flaws included. They inspire me to love those around me, not just to be a good student.


InterVarsity is the closest thing I've got to family on campus. We aren't perfect by any means, but I think our capacity and willingness to be authentic with one another makes IV a fellowship worth being part of.


InterVarsity is one of the first things about Barnard/Columbia that made me realize that I could actually establish a home here in New York City. It is a constant reminder that I'm not meant to walk this life alone.


Being part of such a loving fellowship has given me not only familiar faces to spend Sunday mornings and Thursday Ignite evenings with, but also three-in-the-morning friends for life.
