Kent State University

Welcome to RUF at Kent State University! We are an on-campus ministry at KSU with students from all over Ohio and the US who are seeking to know, love, and serve Jesus together in community. But RUF is not just for Christians: we hope that every Kent State student would find RUF to be a good place to explore faith and ask hard questions. We have an ordained campus minister who works full-time with our students and student leaders. We would love to connect with you and answer any questions you might have about the Bible, Jesus, student life, and whatever else may be on your may be on your mind.
