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.

We walked around campus and it is well maintained and clean. It's really neat to see all of the old buildings. There is a lake on campus which was also nice.

Great campus, excellent academics. I fenced for Indiana University, and Notre Dame always hosted a tournament every year. Inevitably the weather would be terrible, but the campus always looked great regardless.

Game day experience and walking around the campus is something you most experience! The bookstore is great for anything and everything ND. The team walk to the stadium prior to the game amazing! The entire campus is a full day event!

The friendliest place on earth. I lost my phone. Someone said if a Student finds it you'll get it back. Sure enough it was turned it. Love ND or Dislike ND the campus is a must see.

The golden dome, the grotto, the Touch Down Christ are an absolut sight. The atmosphere on game weekend is absolutely out of this world. Nothing to dislike.
