As the semester continues, we want to ensure that Newman University students know how to access various resources available to them on campus.
Jet Resource Hub
The Jets Resource Hub is a resource center that is available free of cost to students of Newman University. It was established by the Student Government Association and the Bachelor of Social Work program at Newman. It not only provides non-perishable meals and snacks, but also provides resources such as over-the-counter medicines and toiletries, like soaps, toothpaste, feminine hygiene products, toilet paper, etc. All students are welcome to its resources, located in McNeill Hall room 123.
Newman University offers free online tutoring services to all Newman students seeking help with their studies. This year each student will have access to online tutors (24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year) at Tutorme.com. To access TutorMe.com a student will go to any of their Canvas courses and click TutorMe in the Navigation bar.
Virtual Care Group
Students can request appointments through the Virtual Care Group mental health services and speak to a licensed therapist about conditions such as depression and anxiety, bipolar disorders, eating disorders, grief and loss, life changes, panic disorders, stress, relationship issues, trauma, PTSD and more.
This year, a shuttle bus is offered by Residence Life as well as Student Life to help students on campus who may have no transportation to be able to have access to transport to get to and from stores and malls for their essential needs.
At Newman, the Career Services exists to help students find resources and tools that will help them maximize their potential — whether it be in the form of off-campus jobs, career planning, internships or volunteer opportunities.
Career Services offers many workshops throughout the semester, which students can register for using Handshake. Click here to view all upcoming workshops.
