With a new semester approaching, students may be interested in joining a new club or organization. One club students can consider joining is the Newman club.
The Newman club is a Catholic student organization, allowing students to share their faith about God without judgement.
The Newman club meets on Thursdays during common hour in Hillwood Commons, room 110. Board meetings take place on Monday nights in the basement of the Interfaith Center chapel. The club also hosts prayer and adoration sessions on Tuesdays, and mass and fellowship every Sunday at 3 p.m.
Michaela Fox, a senior theatre major and president of the club, believes that joining the Newman club has allowed her to make new friends through her faith.
“This club has become more than just a campus extracurricular activity to me,” Fox said. “It’s a place where I can connect with people of my faith, where we can come together safely and speak without judgement about anything.”
The Newman club will be hosting a charitable Christmas Formal dinner and dance on Friday Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. in the basement of the Interfaith Center chapel. All proceeds will be going to Saint Judes Children’s Hospital. Ad-mission is $10 at the door or $7 if purchased in advance by Wednesday, Dec. 4, to the campus minister’s venmo @Govinda-Willard.
