Welcome to RUF at VSU! We're here to help! We want to be a place where you can wrestle with your greatest questions about life and spiritual things, a place where you know you matter, and a place you can trust and grow. If you have any questions about who we are or what we do on campus, please ask. We would love the opportunity to connect with you.
