“Some of my favorite college memories are ones that happen spontaneously, whether that is dancing in the rain or swimming in my clothes. I’m always down for fun and crazy memories.”

“If you desire a community on fire for the Lord, any bulldogCatholic event would be perfect to experience that. If you desire genuine friendship or to grow your relationship with the Lord, bulldogCatholic events would be ideal to fulfill that. The goal of any Newman event is to make you feel seen, known, and loved, so as a community, we desire to grow and welcome everyone. Coming to any bulldogCatholic event will grant you the opportunity to experience the Lord’s presence within the community, but you will also experience so much joy because, as a community, we want you to be there.”

Grace Evans

“I found my two best friends in this community, and experienced genuine friendship for the first time! It took me until junior year to find my people (mostly because of the ‘rona lockdowns) but it was so worth the wait! This community is filled with a deep joy and peace that helps me strive to become the best version of myself.”

Abbi Boehmer

“One of my favorite saints is the mystic St. John of the Cross. I love his quote ‘At the twilight of our lives, we will be judged on love alone.'”

-Ronald Kuehn

“My favorite part about being a part of bulldogCatholic is knowing that there is an incredible group of people that also want God to be the center of their lives, who keep me accountable in prayer, and want to walk toward heaven with me.”

Megan Tschida

“My favorite part of being a part of the UMD community is the palpable joy that it radiates. Joyful truly is the best word to describe this group of people. What’s even better is that when you look to the root of all this joy and peace is that the center is Christ. Jesus is the cause for all this love!”

Bridget Handley

“BulldogCatholic events are great for building the community of the Newman center and give the opportunity to meet so many individuals. Every event has an abundance of food and refreshments and allows for time to bond with friends or make new ones.”

William Hockman

“My favorite Saint is Padre Pio and one of his quotes is ‘My past, O Lord, to Your mercy; my present, to Your love; my future, to Your Providence!'”
