Cultivating spiritual practices that can withstand the transition from college life to working life is a challenge. But spiritual practices are an essential part of developing sustainable faith that serve to deepen your communion with God once you leave campus. Join Dr. Greg Thompson as he leads a roundtable discussion designed to equip students with tools to experience and sustain life with God. This event is presented by RUF (and hosted at Upper House), but open to students from any campus ministries.
