Hello, my name is Jared Coates. I am the Tech Coordinator for CRU. I oversee that the tech equipment is working properly for CRU live, send weekly emails, and much more. I am a junior here at UW-Whitewater, majoring in Environmental Science. I am from Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. I am very athletic and competitive when it comes to sporting activities. I really enjoy playing basketball, if I wasn't limited to when I could play, I'd be on the court all the time. I also enjoy reading and listening to music. My relationship with Jesus and my involvement in CRU are very important to me. Without Jesus in my life, I would be a mess that would be heading down a bad path in life. But with Jesus in my life, I can see what I am created to do, and have a positive outlook on life. CRU is filled with a community of amazing people. It has been very beneficial to me, and has helped me grow in my relationship with Jesus and also make new friends. My closest friends are from CRU as well. I don't know where you are in life, but I encourage you to come and check out CRU. There is a first for everything, right? Come check out CRU on Tuesday nights at 7:30 @ Summers Auditorium!
