Governance, Registered and Independents
SMU Cru is a caring community that is passionate about following Jesus Christ and connecting people to Him. Together, we learn to read the Bible through fresh lenses, support one another through active faith steps, and get equipped for global missions – starting from our very own campus. We desire to give everyone a chance to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus!
What’s more, you can expect to find a second family here! Our defining culture is that our Crusaders share authentic relationships. In SMU, we know how easy it is to be caught up with #hustleculture; Cru serves as an anchor to our identity and purpose as disciples of Christ in school. We want to be Christians who happen to be students, not students who happen to be Christians.
We would love to welcome you into our Cru family. See you!

OUR PEOPLE IN ACTION
DO I NEED TO AUDITION TO GET INTO THE CLUB?
No. We welcome anyone to join our Cru family! :)
I joined Cru because I wanted a to find a Christian community in school and to grow closer to God with a like minded people!
- Dawn Quah, Year 2, SOB
I joined SMU Cru as a personal desire to grow more in sharing the gospel, but yet I chose to stay because of the community and the like-minded friends that I've found.
- Brian Kang, Year 2, SOB
"Cru has greatly blessed my university life and provided me with a safe community of friends that I can turn to in every circumstance. My discipleship group and orientation group are platforms that I trust fully to share anything on my mind and this constant friendship is something that I’m really grateful for. "
Zoe Soo LKCSB: Year 2
"I discovered purpose in this phase of campus life through SMU Cru, experiencing joy and personal growth during the journey of being discipled and mentoring. Met some of my closest yet like-minded friends here as well, sharing both spiritual and ‘academic’ joys and hardships."
Chua Shan En Alumni
Cru is all about Discipleship, Evangelism and Missions. We study the Word thematically, learn how to contextualise it and live it out, and proactively share His love to those on our campus. We also welcome non-Christians into our community to have deeper conversations and learn from one another.
Being plugged into a Christian community on campus surrounds you with like-minded friends that keep you rooted and maturing in your faith. In Cru, we learn how to share the gospel with relevance, sensitivity, respect and truth.
A disciple group (DG) is a group of 4-5 students paired with a senior that meets weekly. During the weekly sessions, we share life, expound God’s word together and pray for each other. We form deep connections and accountability as we journey together in our 4 years on campus.
We often have batch outings, cookouts (bbq & more), gaming sessions, spontaneous meal jios, community blessing projects, and help one another out in our studies at our dedicated Cru corner in Connexion (level 4)!
While we are both Christian societies, our activities and focuses are slightly different (We recommend checking out Christian Fellowship’s page for more information.) Nevertheless, we love each other because we serve the same kingdom!
