RUF at W&M is a community of students that exists to love and serve the College of William and Mary. Our goal is to help students come to understand, know, and follow Jesus Christ as they walk through their college years, and to help lay a foundation for a lifetime of following Jesus and serving him in all areas of life. We're here for the campus-for students from any religious background and students who have no religious background at all. Whoever you are and whatever your story, RUF is for you.
Our campus minister, Rev. Ben Robertson is a graduate of Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Mo. He and his wife Dawn moved to Williamsburg in the summer of 2006 They have four children ages 3-10. The Robertsons love college students, RUF and the College of William & Mary and are glad to serve you in any way they can. Feel free to contact Ben at firstname.lastname@example.org or ask to be Ben's Facebook Friend, he just might oblige. Dawn is a native of Virginia and an alum of Virginia Commonwealth University where she majored in Art Education. Along with being a mom, Dawn continues to enjoy watercolor and photography when she manages to find the time. Their kids enjoy Pixar, candy, spontaneous dancing (usually to Fleet Foxes), and having "RUF friends" over to the house for cookouts or waffles.
