Freshmen Retreat: Firmly Planted

Join your awesome Freshman Group leaders and fellow freshman for a day retreat at the Newman Center! You'll spend time together eating, praying, listening to some talks, and (most importantly) building community!

This is a great opportunity for you to meet new friends and learn more about how the Newman Center can be a home away from home for you, and how to strengthen your faith during your college years!

The cost is just $10, and that includes lunch and dinner. If money is an issue- don't let that stop you from coming! Talk to Bayli Hochstein at for info on partial scholarships.

Please sign up by Oct. 19th, using the link below:

The theme this month is Luau and we will be serving Loco Moco, Fruit Kebobs, Huli Chicken, and Mac Salad. We ask for a donation of $5 to the event.

Welcome back, students! Be sure to stop by at any (and all!) of our Welcome Week events, happening in the evenings of the first week of school (Sep. 25-29). We will offer bbq's, service projects, prayer opportunities- all sorts of things to get you connected with peers, the community at Newman, and God! This is a great way to kick-off the 2017-2018 academic year!
