Meredith College

Join us at N.C. State University on Tuesday Nights at 7:30 at Poe Hall 216

Welcome to RUF at Meredith! We are a community learning about the love of Jesus for us and how it calls us to love others. In RUF we do not think any of us has it all together, and so we all need to hear the good news that God has provided Jesus to bring healing and restoration to broken people. To help people learn about Jesus, we provide opportunities to learn what the Bible teaches and put it into practice in our everyday lives. In RUF, we think the gospel must be understood if it is to impact our life, and it must be lived out to be truly understood. Feel free to contact us if we can help you!

Meet Our Team

Grace Valenti

Grace Valenti

Campus Staff

Grace grew up in Lakeland, FL for the first 18 years of her life and continued to grow up during her four years at the University of Florida (Go Gators!) where she majored in Event Management. Throughout her time at UF she was involved in RUF and decided, through the encouragement of an awesome intern, to become one herself. She moved to Raleigh in August 2019 to start her internship at Meredith College. Throughout her time in Raleigh there were shifts in the staff that required her to serve at both Meredith College and NC State University. She fell in love with both campuses over the two years of her internship. She is excited to continue her ministry alongside her Campus Minister Chuck and the interns that the Lord provides. Grace hopes to start her Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Liberty University in the Fall of 2021 and is excited to further her knowledge to be able to serve the Lord in the field of counseling, whatever that may look like.

Grace loves exploring new places in Raleigh (any burger joint recommendations would be appreciated), watching college football, going on walks/hikes, taking day trips to the beach or mountains, finding new Netflix shows to watch too quickly, and observing the new weird habits her dog develops.

Abby Walter

Abby Walter


Abby is one of six siblings to graduate from the University of Georgia. She received a degree in Biology with a Spanish Minor. After spending her freshman year on the UGA Women’s Tennis Team (Go Dawgs!), Abby was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). This caused her to take a year off of school before returning to spend her remaining three years with the other two-thirds of her triplet siblings. Abby always has time for a good prank and loves to do anything outdoors. You may find her walking her Hungarian Vizsla, Vinnie, running or doing yoga, sharing nacho tables, gardening, etc. Moving forward she is excited to see the avenues in which God chooses to use her to love the community of Meredith College!
