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.

if you want to encounter the most egotistical, rude, mindset of entitlement people on the planet...... visit Notre Dame. the mentality of these people - mainly the students themselves, is just downright disgusting.

I ran from my hotel all the way to Notre Dame and it was a such a nice quick run inside the campus. Unfortunately this was the only moment I had to go there and didn’t do the whole tour. Definitely a must!
