Welcome to RUF at Davidson College!
Regardless of your beliefs or doubts, RUF is a place for you to explore Christianity and grow in your understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow him in community with others.
RUF meets on Tuesday nights at 8pm for our weekly large group meeting (usually in The Sprinkle Room in the Student Union) during the semester. We offer numerous small groups that meet throughout the week for building relationships, studying the bible, and praying together. We also host social events and service opportunities throughout the year, so keep an eye on the calendar to know what is happening. We look forward to meeting you very soon!
If you're a Davidson student interested in learning more, please complete the Student Interest Form.

To all who are
spiritually weary & seek rest:
to all who mourn and long for comfort;
to all who struggle and desire victory;
to all who sin and need a Savior;
to all who are strangers and want fellowship;
to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness;
and to whoever will come—
we open wide our doors
and offer welcome in the name
of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Especially for first year students...
As you engage the authority, relevancy, and reliability of the Bible this year as a new student at Davidson, we humbly offer a set of articles that both challenge the default views often assumed in class and positively present an academically viable alternative. Feel free to take advantage of these articles and let's keep the conversation going. Click here for the Davidson RUF Freshman Reader.
