We all need a break once in a while, right? At the Newman Center, we believe there's no better way to get away than to embark on one of the unique, rewarding retreat experiences we offer year-round. So, do something great for your faith: get away from campus for a weekend, grow in your relationship with God, make amazing new friends, reflect on your life and better understand your calling.
