Grace Valenti is the RUF Intern at Meredith College and NC State.  

Grace grew up in Lakeland, Florida, and after graduating from the University of Florida in May 2019 (Go Gators!) felt drawn to continue to serve in RUF through the internship. On any given day, you can find Grace hanging out with people as often as possible while hopefully incorporating good food and walks with her dog.

Andrew Collins is the RUF intern at NC State. Andrew grew up in Lexington, KY before going to college at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), where he graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Andrew quickly found RUF during his freshman year at UAH and never looked back, as God used RUF time and time again to draw Andrew closer to Himself. In his free time, Andrew enjoys rock climbing, backpacking, ultimate, spikeball, volleyball, and pretty much any other outdoor activity or sport.
