The Cardinal Newman Society exists to help renew and strengthen Catholic identity in higher education. The Columbus State University chapter carries this out by building relationships, worshipping together, and studying God's truth together. Sometimes, we go to retreats and conferences. We are also connected with the FOCUS Digital Campus. Times and locations for events vary. CSU students, college-aged students and anyone with a heart to help young adults grow in faith is welcome.
