COLLEGE TIPS

Get connected NOW to a caring community.

TIP #1

Tip #2

Don’t be scared to reach out to people or clubs that you want to be a part of because you never know where you will meet your best friends!

- Emily, Sophomore

TIP #3

Studying is really important throughout your college career but especially your freshmen year. I’ve met so many people who are struggling because they did not study their freshmen year. 

 

- Makenzy, Junior

TIP #4

Don’t say you’ll do it later, because you won’t. 

 

- Mark, Senior

TIP #5

Know your morals and who you (as a Christ-follower). Have standards for yourself & friends.

- Carlea, Junior

Be sure to get into a faith-based community right away.

-Sarah, Junior

Freshmen Leadership Team

A Thurday Night Journey Group

At Freshmen Leadership Team, we hangout, have a ton of fun, play games, live life together, and learn what it means to be a leader in Cru, but most importantly, we get to know Jesus as we plunge into the Gospel together. If you are a freshmen, we hope to see you there. 

"FLT exist to give freshmen the opportunity to meet other freshmen involved in Cru, to have fun and grow in their faith together, and to take more ownership of the movement of Cru at Texas State"
