Newman Open House & Ice Cream Sundaes!

Thursday, Aug. 27th

2 pm – 6 pm

Come check out your new “home away from home” on campus!  The Catholic Newman Community at UMSL has a cozy house right off campus—space to relax, hang with friends, do homework (free WiFi!), play (we have a huge yard, tons of games, foosball and ping pong in the basement) and pray (there’s a sweet chapel upstairs).  All are welcome anytime!  Stop by during the open house to check things out, meet great folks and see what the Newman buzz is about.  We’ll have free, make-your-own ice cream sundaes!  Stop by for a moment or for the afternoon.  We can’t wait to meet you!

UMSL Tie-Dye Night!
