MTS student Johnathan B.The Masters of Theological Studies program at Conrad Grebel has been a much needed breath of fresh air for me. From the fascinating course content and class discussions to the friendly extracurricular community, I quickly found Grebel to be a second home. Having financial support from generous donors has enabled me to invest more of my time and energy into life at Grebel—and it's been worth every moment!”

- Jonathan Boerger, Master of Theological Studies

PACS student

When the opportunity came to do a service-learning trip with a focus on homelessness, I was really excited. But in the end, it was not the heartbreak and pain that moved me as much as the hope and restoration that the shelter community exuded.

- Jacob Winter,  International Development

MPACS student Amanda B.

I wouldn't have made it to the MPACS program without the funding that was provided to us. It opened me up to an experience that has changed my life and given me a new lens through which to look at the world. The program is made that much better by the regular interaction with faculty, staff and students in our beautiful building--from lunches in the cafeteria, chats with the staff at their desks, or meetings with fellow students in the library or the grad hive. When I walk into Grebel I feel welcomed and at home."

- Amanda Bellefeuile, Master of Peace and Conflict Studies

Grebel Music Student

I was very eager to participate in the Music Living Learning community at Grebel, knowing that I would be with people who I could discuss my interests in music with.

Laura Gray

It will be meaningful to walk down the hall in our new music facilities and see Mom and Dad's name. They have supported and inspired me and my siblings throughout our lives and this gift of naming a studio after them is a way of passing on that inspiration to others.
