University of Texas at Tyler & Tyler Junior College

Join us Wednesday Nights at 7pm in STE 127

RUF Tyler seeks to be a community of students at UT Tyler and Tyler Junior College who are growing in our faith; learning to love God, love others, and love our campus. RUF welcomes the committed and the seeking, the convinced and the skeptical. We are a community where no matter what your background or belief (or doubt) you can explore Christianity, grow in your understanding of Jesus, and learn what it looks like to walk with him. We hope you'll join us!

Abby Plott

Abby Plott

Campus Staff

Abby is from Jasper, Alabama, and graduated from Samford University with a degree in Human Development and Family Science and a minor in Arabic. In college, she connected with the community of RUF and fostered a passion for overseas missions and local ministry. After graduating, Abby began working as an RUF intern at UT Tyler, and after completing 2 years of the internship, felt called to stay in Tyler as Campus Staff.

You can probably find Abby at one of Tyler's local coffee shops. She loves reading, being outside, thrifting, playing sports, and eating ice cream! Abby is thankful to be in Tyler, and excited to be part of God's work on campus.
