At the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, when California State University InterVarsity chapters were derecognized, students on the Sacramento State campus needed a new meeting place since they no longer had the status needed to formally reserve a room for their large group meetings. An out-of-the-way alcove on the second floor of the University Union was discovered, where they could meet informally.
Audrey Chan, InterVarsity’s Team Leader at Sacramento State, said that arrangement worked well for a couple of weeks. Then the director of the union contacted the chapter leaders and invited them to his office. Concerned about the future of their chapter’s activities, the chapter leaders called for prayer and fasting.
