Adopt-a-Buckeye Program

Students: Are you interested in connecting with a resident community family at the Newman Center?  Our Adopt-a-Buckeye program pairs up students with amazing resident community members and families at the Newman Center as a way for you to build community, get more connected, and find a host "family" during your time here at OSU to support you in your college life.  You'll meet up about once a month for coffee, a home-cooked dinner, a service project, or a Newman Center Mass or event as a way for you to have a community mentor and build relationships in our dynamic Catholic community.  In the past 4 years, we've paired up over 50 students with community mentors in our ESTEEM Leadership program, but now we're opening up this opportunity for every student in our community.  If you are interested in having a host family adopt you, please sign-up here.
