OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) – A Roman Catholic ministry has offered a new faith-based housing option to University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh students. Post-Crescent Media reports (http://post.cr/1lS2Rn8 ) the Newman Student House will open this fall. The off-campus facility is a six-unit coed apartment building about a half-mile from the university. Residents must follow the house rules, including no drugs, alcohol or overnight guests. They must also agree to a set of expectations laid out in its community policy and follow an honor code. The house ministry director says the students will also be encouraged to pray, share meals and participate in monthly service projects. He says Newman Student House residents aren’t required to follow Catholicism, but they should share in its mission.
