Arizona State University’s Newman Center has been ranked 13th best College Newman Center, according to Best College Reviews.

The All Saints Catholic Newman Center currently serves a population of more than 18,000 Catholic students at Arizona State University. The ASU Newman Club was first formed in 1932, and with community growth in the 1960s, the construction of the Old St. Mary’s Church helped the ASU Newman club expand, making the church a hub for the community.

According to Best College Review, the Newman Centers were chosen based on the following criteria:

• The center offers regular Mass times during the week.
• The center regularly offers Eucharistic Adoration, Confession and other opportunities for spiritual growth.
• The center offers regular community-building events.
• The college must have a Catholic population of greater than 100 students.
• Percentage of Catholic students, relationship with the local parish and specific site amenities were also taken into account.

The ASU Newman Center, on the Tempe campus, offers discernment groups, retreats, Bible studies, Newman Nights and many other opportunities for students.
