RUF brings to the campus a Christ-centered ministry that wants to see students embraced and equipped by God's Grace. Students from BROWN UNIVERSITY, the RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL OF DESIGN, and other Providence area schools have formed "RUF" - an evangelical Christian fellowship that is connected with the nationwide campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America. Our members are students from a wide variety of ethnicities, church, and religious backgrounds who want to know Jesus Christ. RUF is here for both the "convinced" Christian and the "unconvinced" who want to know more about Christianity.
