Welcome Class of 2019!

Welcome Class of 2019 and congratulations on being accepted to Northwestern University. We want you to know that the Sheil Catholic Center is here for you no matter whether you are a practicing Catholic, non-practicing Catholic or not Catholic at all. Our Center is a place of welcome. A place you can come relax, be yourself, make new friends, eat (we always have food) and take a break from the rigors of academia. Our Center has a chapel, study library, small conference rooms, social lounge with pool and ping-pong tables, large flat screen TV and lots of comfy couches.

The Sheil Catholic Center is committed to providing a welcoming environment where fellowship and hospitality thrive. Our doors are open to everyone! Sheil is a home away from home for many students. This is a place where you Belong!
