Staying Faithful at Tufts

Gordon Govier
December 2, 2014

Charles Skold decided he would only attend Tufts University if there was a thriving InterVarsity chapter, because he had heard that Tufts could be a difficult place to be a Christian. Visiting the campus, attending a Large Group meeting, and actually talking with some chapter members encouraged him – so much that Tufts became his university.

On his first day as a student at Tufts he saw InterVarsity students making contact with new arrivals through an evangelistic Proxe Station outside of the dining hall. He knew they were committed to the same things he was committed to and connected immediately. “It was good to see them out in public,” he recalled. “They were open about being Christian and inviting new students.”

International Student Ministry Still Growing

Gordon Govier
November 24, 2014

A little more than 4 percent of all U.S. undergraduate and graduate school enrollments are international students, and the number continues to grow. InterVarsity’s ministry to international students is also continuing to grow.

The just-released Open Doors 2014 report from the Institute of International Education tallies 886,052 students who came to the U.S. from other countries for their college education in the 2013-2014 academic year. That’s the highest number ever. China sends the most—more than 31 percent of all internationals—followed by India and South Korea.

A Campus Ministry Response to Ferguson

Gordon Govier
November 21, 2014

 

The issues in Ferguson, Missouri, resonate with many students on college campuses across the country: racial tensions, discrimination, abuse of power, and historical patterns of oppression. And these same issues affect many across the country. So as the grand jury looking into the Michael Brown shooting prepared to announce its findings, InterVarsity staff and students sought a response that constructively connected with our biblical concerns for ethnic reconciliation and justice.
