“I have been an active member of the Newman House at Binghamton University for four years and I can truly say that it has become a home away from home

Every time I walk through the doors of the Newman House I am overcome with feelings of comfort, love and friendship. Sister Rose has wholeheartedly created this unique environment that allows us to feel part of a second family, when our immediate families are far away… I have learned to embrace a life where I cherish every moment. The Newman House holds a special place in my heart and my experience here stands as an unforgettable highlight in my undergraduate education at Binghamton University. “

“Starting college can be a stressful and challenging time. The first time being away from home, far from familiar places, people, and experiences can understandably leave a person feeling a longing for a community to belong to and people to call their friends. I know that it did for me. I consider myself to be extremely fortunate that I discovered the Newman House when I did. I first got involved in the Fall of 2014 as a Freshman just starting at Binghamton University, and I quickly realized that this community was exactly what I was looking for. I became fast friends with the other people there, people from a diverse selection of majors and backgrounds, all brought together seeking to grow in faith and zeal for Christ. I still count some of those people among my closest friends. I remained involved throughout my whole time at Binghamton, holding positions, running events, attending talks, going on retreats, praying, eating, and just loving life with a community of wonderful people. The Newman house was really a home for me, a place that no matter how I was feeling I could go and have a good time with people who cared about me and that I cared about.”
