Sometimes it is hard finding your way and meeting people with whom you can form lasting relationships in life. Sometimes it is hard to adapt to new environments and life-changing decisions. You need fellowship with people who relate to the challenges you face and how Jesus Christ can help you to build the most important relationship you'll need in life. If you are looking for a group like this, then Under God Campus Bible Study is for you. Under God Campus Bible Study meets every Wednesday night from 8 to 9 p.m. in the Student Union Room 310 and holds various additional activities and events throughout the year such as a conference, retreats, cookouts and much more!
