I am Algarde Habanineza, an exchange student from Rwanda. The past two years, the UNL Newman Center and the community within have had a huge positive impact on not only my spiritual life but also my social life through various events held both on and off campus.
The most amazing part is that within this community we get the opportunity to grow with other brothers and sisters through Jesus Christ and support each other along the way. I have enjoyed being around such nice people who are willing to lift you up during your down moments, as well as join you in celebrating your bright moments.
Earlier in June during our visit to the Omaha zoo, we had a wonderful occasion to reconnect as students and as Christians. I loved it! Among many other opportunities, such as visiting families around Nebraska, forming a new Newman Center choir, and touring the zoo are activities that bring us together a community and help us love one another like a family.
