Having visited over 60 Division I University's, Notre Dame is the Hallmark of excellence. The grounds are Immaculate, as they should be with "our Lady of the Lakes" overseeing the campus from atop the Golden Dome. Even though there is a $441Million Dollar construction projects under way, the campus is still an over overwhelmingly attractive site. From the Hamm's Book... More

Great history and tradition! The bookstore is huge and has everything a fan would want. Great place to take a walk around campus. People are very friendly. Make sure you check out the grotto and the world war 1 helmet light hanging in the breezeway of the cathedral next to the golden dome.

If you dont have time to walk it, at least drive around the campus. There is great photo opportunities of legendary people around the stadium and of the golden dome... More

We visited the University over a get-away weekend in January. Cold, cold, cold! Everything about this university spoke of history, education, and faith. I should also mention sports! The campus architecture was consistently unique and even the stonework was consistently beautiful and spoke of care and love. We attended Saturday evening Mass at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. We... More

The Grotto is a special place to see and experience, light a candle and say a prayer for Family and the 2015 Fighting Irish season.
