Freshman Ignite Retreat:  Ignite is a 2-day retreat for incoming freshman students each fall. You will meet other students who want to live out their faith in college while learning more about the Newman Center and how you can get involved in your faith community on campus.

Busy Person’s Retreat:  During this retreat, you will meet with a spiritual director for 45 minutes each day and commit to 30 minutes of personal prayer each day while still going to classes, work and all of your other life commitments.

SEEK Conference:  Held each year in January, Newman takes a large group of students to the SEEK Conference, hosted by FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students).  Students pay their own way, but Newman will subsidize a portion of the registration fees and help students fundraise.

Participants are encouraged to step back from decisions and focus on their relationship with God. This retreat is open to colleges-age students of junior, senior, or graduate status.
