At the beginning of the year, I was lucky to have the St. Philip Neri Newman Center as a place where I could study and meet new friends who have the same beliefs as me and encourage me in my faith. The other students at the Newman Center welcomed me immediately, and without them, I would have had a hard time adjusting to college life. I have also had the opportunity to be involved at the Newman Center by joining a Bible Study, singing in the choir at Mass, and going to many of the events that students organize. I am thankful that the Newman Center is a place where I have grown in my faith and will continue to grow in my faith throughout the rest of my college experience.
