• Thursdays at 8pm

    Join us on Thursday nights for worship, stories, talks from the Bible, and opportunities to connect with other college students who are pursuing Jesus.

    RealLife's "home" is Hitchcock Hall 131, but we will occasionally be "on the road" at other locations. Check out our Instagram feed for week-to-week updates on the location of RealLife. We can't wait to see you!

  • First Things First

    Spring Semester Talk Series

    In this 6 week series, we will come together as a movement to take a look at 6 of our core values as a movement of Cru at Ohio State. Join us as we explore what the Bible has to say about walking in the power of the Holy Sprit, eternal perspective, evangelism, discipleship, community, and our world scope.
  • What is RealLife?

    RealLife is a place where students bring students to grow in our understanding of who God is, who he says we are, and how that impacts our lives. You can expect stories of how God is at work in the lives of other students, worship led by the RealLife band, and a practical teaching from one of our Cru staff members.

    At RealLife we like to laugh, have a good time, and think deeply about God, our lives, and the world around us. We love seeing new faces, so the door is always open and you're invited!

  • Would you like to join the RealLife Band?

    You can audition by following these four steps.


    Get Familiar

    Thank you for your interest in auditioning for the RealLife band! First, please read this "Things to know prior to auditioning" document. Then take a look at this document to find the audition songs for your particular instrument.



    For your audition, listen to the songs for your instrument with headphones, and play along as you record. Please learn the parts from the recording and play them as closely as possible. If you want to add some of your own style to your video, feel free.


    Before Submitting

    Your completed video should only contain audio from your instrument. If you have any other previously recorded videos of your playing that you feel are a good representation of your playing abilities, feel free to submit them in addition to the required songs.



    Fill out this form to submit your audition file, and we will get in contact with you soon. If you have trouble recording or submitting your videos (I don’t have my instrument with me at school, the file is too big, etc.) please let us know and we’ll figure something out. Thank you again for your interest!
