Renowned for its rich athletic tradition, the university is a beautiful place to visit, with such religious attractions as the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, the park-like setting of its huge stadium and the abundant artwork.

Gorgeous campus! Such architecture and history. Kids were very nice. Football weekend so the dorms were out in numbers cooking food, the Knights of Columbus had the best steak sandwich we had ever eaten, the on campus eateries were jammed packed. The entire atmosphere was so infectious and fun. Bands all over marching, gymnastic performers, delicious aromas. Lots of pride... More

This was not on the list of things to do on our vacation but so glad we took the time to visit. Being LSU fans, the thing we wanted to see the most was Notre Dame Football Stadium. This was in a construction upgrade phase but still impressive. The campus was beautiful and so well maintained. Our visit to the... More

I grew up in South Bend and now live in Idaho. Every time I visit my parents back home I have to visit my old school Notre Dame. This place just has a feel to it from all of the history. From the Golden Dome to the House that Rickne Built to the Lake, Notre Dame has a feeling all... More

Toured the Campus recently and it is by far one of most amazing campuses I have ever been to. Historic buildings left and right with flowing aspects of nature as you walk throughout the university. I honestly had goosebumps when I saw TOUCHDOWN JESUS for the first time on the Library wall.

Awesome tour and tour guides of the athletic facilities! For Notre Dame fans, this is an over-the-top experience/opportunity to learn all you ever wanted to know about Notre Dame football, etc.

Although I had been at the UND years ago for a graduate course, the campus simply seems to get better with time. All of the new buildings have been built in the consistent ND style used all through the campus. The Basilica, the Grotto, the Admin Building, the Book Store and the Stadium ( of course) all make this an... More

Great campus, beautiful trees, shrubs, grass and buildings. It was rainy the day we went to the football game, but it is a beautiful campus, my second favorite, next to Ohio State of course!

My middle son is now a huge fan of Notre Dame and this university is now on his short list. The campus is beautiful, clean, and the athletic complexes were fun to visit. All of the employees we encountered were super friendly and helpful. Great ambassadors for the school!
