Who is Cru?

Cru is a community of students at Western Michigan University who simply want to experience God more while in college.


We are not a church.  We are not a replacement for church.  We are college students from many different churches (and even no church/spiritual backgrounds at all) who want to grow in understanding what it means to follow Jesus Christ.


We gather as a whole campus on Thursdays at 8:08pm in Rood Rm.1118 – with music, messages connecting to college life and authentic, real life people.  We gather in small groups called “Community Groups” across campus at other times throughout the week – a place for small discussion about God’s Word and each other.  We have tons of other stuff going on too including retreats, conferences, parties, events, and training on life skills.


We know college can be a hard, and even scary for a student to live out their faith, so we try to offer students a safe and loving alternative to the perceived/stereotypical college life. Even if you just want to learn more about the who Jesus really is, we encourage you to stop on out and check it out for yourself!
