The Association of Catholic Students (aka Newman Club) is an official club of the University of Oregon. Membership is open to all current students who are Catholic, or interested in the Catholic faith.
The peer ministers and Student Activities Leadership Team (SALT), which is composed of a group of sophomore, junior, and senior student leaders, are committed to being a connection to the University of Oregon for other students, especially freshmen. It’s a great way to stay connected to our Catholic faith, make close friends, have a spiritual support, and have fun!!
The SALT team hosts retreats for all students! Each retreat focuses on a different spiritual and/or intellectual aspect of our faith, but they all offer a great opportunity to meet other Catholic students and spend time in fellowship and prayer. Retreats are typically from Friday afternoon to noon Sunday, and are held at St. Benedict Lodge in McKenzie Bridge, OR.
Wednesday Night Activities
Student events will vary throughout the year, but 7:30pm Wednesday night is the time to be here!
During Spring Break, the Newman Center takes a group of 40-50 students to do a week-long service trip in various parts of the western US. Interested in getting involved? Stay tuned for more information.
