Founded in September 1946, the St. Thomas More Newman Center is the official Roman Catholic campus ministry for The Ohio State University. The center was placed in the charge of the Paulist Fathers on September 8, 1956. The original location was a house on Iuka Street, on the east side of campus. The present center, located across from the northeastern corner of the OSU campus, was dedicated in October 1971. In October 2002, the Center was rededicated after renovations that included a daily chapel, office space, meeting rooms and dedicated student space. The artist for the stained glass found throughout the worship spaces of the Newman Center was former Paulist student Nick Markell. The Paulist Fathers celebrated 50 years of ministry at the center in 2006.  In 2012, the St. Thomas More Newman Center was honored with an Exemplary Award in Campus Ministry for Developing Leaders for the Future by the Catholic Campus Ministry Association/USCCB.
