    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. Our schedule for this semester can be found on this page, and you can check out our Instagram feed for week-to-week updates on the location of RealLife. We can't wait to see you!

  • What is RealLife?

    broken image

    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!
