College of William & Mary

Join us every Tuesday night at 7:30 PM in McGlothlin 020

RUF at W&M is a community of students that exists to love and serve the College of William and Mary. Our goal is to help students come to understand, know, and follow Jesus Christ as they walk through their college years, and to help lay a foundation for a lifetime of following Jesus and serving him in all areas of life. We're here for the campus-for students from any religious background and students who have no religious background at all. Whoever you are and whatever your story, RUF is for you.
