Whatever you did for New Year’s Eve, it probably didn’t change your life the way handful of events did for college students around the country.

After celebrating Christ’s birth, thousands of college students packed their bags and traveled to their region’s annual winter conference with Cru.

For some, it was a time to get away from the hurt in their household or the pressures from family members. Some were looking for a fresh start from the regret, shame and guilt they experienced the previous semester.

It was a time for seniors to ask God for clarity about their futures. For others, it became the time of placing their faith in Christ.
