Student Spotlight: Chay Gruber
When I first came to Carnegie Mellon in the Fall of 2015, the number one hope for my experience in college was to grow closer to God and to avoid backsliding in my faith. I was on a great spiritual high as the brink of embarking on my four-year journey was fast approaching on the horizon. I most certainly did not want that spiritual high to end. Here at CMU, God fully answered my prayers of falling increasingly more in love with Him. I have met some of the most passionate, loving, and supportive Christian people. I got involved with Cru (previously known as Campus Crusade for Christ) at the beginning of my freshman year, and it has served as a close-knit and supportive family to me since the beginning. Now, for the second year, I’m serving as a leader and I am leading a sophomore Bible study. I’m so grateful for the God-given opportunity to grow in my faith alongside those I care about so greatly.
