 Get Started

Sending your child to college is big transition. We’ve come alongside thousands of families to care for and help students connect with Christ-centered community on campus as they are learning their way around, adjusting to dorm life, making new decisions, and facing new temptations. We are here for you and your child. Help them plug in with a group of students who are following Jesus together.

“Cru is a group of truly authentic believers who deeply care about me and my walk with the Lord.”

– Emily, college freshman

“God used Cru in my first weeks on campus by really insuring that I wasn’t alone in any of the decisions that I was having to make.” 

– Andrew, college senior

“I’d been a Christian my whole life.  But Cru showed me how to live out my faith and how to share it with other people.” 

– Shaneez, 1st year graduate student
