Welcome, new students!

We are so excited you’ll be joining us as you travel along your faith journey in college. This time in your life is a great opportunity for you to make your faith your own, grow your prayer life, and be the face of Christ in service to others.  We cannot wait to get to know you and welcome you as part of our family at the Newman Center. Our hope is that you find a community of faith that you can laugh with, pray with, serve with, and can see Christ’s love. Check out some great student testimonials and our wonderful events below. If you have questions, or want to get involved, email our Director of Campus Ministry, Lillie.

'The Newman Center has given me a home away from home and a community I can call my family. It has created lasting memories for me and shaped my faith and friendships in ways I never thought possible. Most importantly, it has shown me the joy that comes from loving and serving people of all backgrounds.'

Emily Mahood, '22

'My experience at the Newman Center has been nothing short of amazing. My faith has grown exponentially by seeing everyone so engaged in their spiritual life. The Newman Center is truly a home away from home as everyone here is very open and loving. There is always something to be a part of and I am eternally grateful for all the activities that I have been blessed to participate in.'
