Marisa Galvan

Hello, my name is Marisa Galvan and I am the Community Outreach Student Leader here at the Newman Center. I am from Chicago, IL and I am also a senior majoring in dietetics at Western Illinois University. I have been involved with the Newman Center since the fall of 2020. I have been a student employee, a lector, and a volunteer for the Newman Center since my time here. I am determined to grow our community through Catholic tradition and values, while also cultivating a strong, free-thinking environment for student leaders to come together and change lives with Jesus.
