The College Summit is an event for all university students, faculty, instructors, and recent graduates. High school students may also attend. It is an opportunity to make new friends, get inspired, and explore ways to support the Cause of Christian Science and get involved in this global movement. This year we’re coming together to explore how Truth - as explained in Christian Science - is transforming the world today.
