Biographical/historical note

The Black Student Fellowship was a Christian organization formed in 1975 to give black students a place to worship on campus. Soon after its founding, the name was changed to the United Students Fellowship to be more inclusive. Membership flourished in the 1980s and 1990s, as the Fellowship expanded. Many members of USF also belonged to the New Horizons Choir.

In addition to Sunday morning worship, the USF offered programs such as Tract Fairs, Sunday School, Basic Studies for a Firm Foundation, dormitory Bible studies, Women and Men Fellowships, and the Discipleship Team. It also was active in service and community projects.

In the early 2000s, the USF organized events such as the annual Back to School Bash, the Fall Talent Show, Beach Retreats and the Spring Banquet. The final gathering of USF happened in the Spring of 2005.
