College is a unique and invaluable time for you to grow as a person and discover your unique gifts and talents. The GRC Newman Center is a great place for young Catholics like you to be supported in their faith journey and college studies, along with the opportunity to make great friendships that will last a lifetime.


The GRC Newman Center is a facility for you and for all students who wish to live a Catholic life on campus and discover Christ through their brothers and sisters. Whenever possible, you're invited to meet Jesus in the Mass and to deepen your faith through our Faith Discussion groups offered by the Center. You'll be encouraged to seek the truth with an honest and open mind, along with charity. Then you'll begin to experience true freedom in your life - freedom that can only be found through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and living the faith.
