name the college ministry!

A little quiz to get us all up-to-speed on some of the campus-based college ministries around the U.S.

Feel free to report your score AND add other ministries you’re familiar with – including ministries whose names change depending on location. This is NOT a complete list, just several major ministries that don’t have extremely obvious names.

I hope you have your Scantron ready to go.
