We have been to a lot of college campus sites, but this is undoubtedly the loveliest. Buildings range from new to ones with great historical value. Not to be missed

We live in South Bend IN and do not take nearby Notre Dame for granted in any way. Our adult grandson and his wife and 2 kids visited us recently and as we do with all guests took them to Notre Dame. The fall colors and weather were perfect. There is much to see on this beautiful and well equipped... More

The campus is one of the more beautiful ones that I have seen. The feeling of tradition and continuity are very present. The Basilica and Grotto are just two of the many places that are must see when visiting. The history was quite interesting. It was thoroughly an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.

Awesome tour of the grounds of Notre Dame, the Basilica, the Grotto and more. Free and given by one of the senior students. He wasn't able to answer all of our questions, but gave us a lot of information about the campus, campus life and history. We were just visiting South Bend and thought it would be a fun thing...

Everything is kept in place, the general feeling of being at ND gives you peace and a sense of order, fraternity and overall well being.

As a kid, my dad would always watch Notre Dame games. Since I was staying in Chicago, I felt I needed to go walk around the Notre Dame campus, so I did. It was great to walk by the stadium, see the dome, and the Basilica. There were back to back weddings it seemed as I saw 2 different sets... More

We just returned from a fabulous weekend at University of Notre Dame. We traveled with our children and my parents for the Notre Dame vs. Stanford football game. We booked the on campus information session and tour on Friday before the game. Thank you Notre Dame for making the process super easy, informative, and fun too. The 2 students who... More

We are in our 50's and going to our first US college football game. Everyone was so nice, from people working in the ND souvenir shops, the shuttle bus drivers, the ushers at the game and the college students helping us with directions. We even met some people at a local restaurant and they invited us to their tailgate party... More

I have been visiting Notre Dame since 2003. The campus is absolutely beautiful!! I love the art museum there are amazing art works from centuries past. The bookstore is an unique experience. My family and I look forward to the football games.

I'm biased because I went here for undergrad and grad school...but the campus is second to none. The beauty of Notre Dame only hit me after I left school. I found out that most other campuses aren't as well put-together as ND is. The historic nature plus the architecture really give the area a cohesive feel. Make sure you see... More
