As of the beginning of October, Edinboro University has revoked CCC’s status as a recognized group. To clarify, this is not a case of the University discriminating against us.
At the beginning of every school year every recognized student organization has to turn in paperwork confirming that they are still an active group – the paperwork is due on September 30th.
On September 30th I received this email from the faculty advisor Dr. Hurd:
The Campus Crusade for Christ has not sent in their paper work. The Organization Registration form. It is due today. After today they will be inactive for a semester. Please get this paper work in. Thank you

So, needless to say all the running around was not done that day, it was just not possible. Last Wednesday, when we went to go into our room to meet the doors were locked and we were not allowed to enter because we are no longer an active group and therefore are not allowed to reserve rooms. We met out on the basketball courts and had a great time of worship and prayer – but the situation is obviously less than ideal.
As I type I had and idea of a possible remedy and one of the students leaders is following up on it. Please pray that the Lord will do whatever He is intending through this and that our ministry at Edinboro will be advanced through this!
Edit:Cru at Edinboro is not the only organization that lost their active status – 50 out of 120 student organizations did not turn their paperwork in on time. That is more than 40%!
