Here at RULA we’ve had many wonderful and gracious students visit the RULA dorms, kitchen, and other campus facilities. They’ve shared stories, cooked meals, and enriched RULA life in so many different ways.
Recently a few former students have chosen not just to participate while they’re here, but to leave a legacy for future RULA students. And so Friends Of Runaway University (FORU) has been born.
The day Samuel, Alexis, Marta & Yulia were about to head off in 4 different directions: Alexis heading to Northern California, Marta crossing The Atlantic for her BFA exhibition in London, Yulia off on another hitchhiking adventure, and Samuel pedaling his way east on the bicycle he’d just bought, heading to a workshop in Arizona, they made a last group trip to that traveler’s best friend, Walmart. In addition to supplies they needed for their various adventures, they also bought an air mattress to leave to RULA for the comfort of future students.
