Peter tells us in his first letter says there are two things that don't perish.
1. The blood of Jesus (v19) by which we're ransomed (v18).Not two things but one. One word of God that is supremely about the cross of Jesus that brings new life: an inheritance that is imperishable (v4) by the death & resurrection of Jesus!
2. The word of God (v23) by which we're born again (v23).
How will revival come? How will things change?
As the word of the cross is preached (v25).
How do we see students preaching the cross. Not by applying some other strategy, only by preaching the cross to them so their hearts will be changed by the gospel. That's all we can do. Pray and preach the gospel. Let the Holy Spirit by the word and the word by the Holy Spirit set hearts alight with the glorious grace of the gospel.
