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.

great place to visit, you can feel the history that is attached to this campus. the spirit on campus for the home football game and the men's soccer team defeating #1 syracuse made this visit very special.

Stroll around the beautiful campus grounds on a home football weekend, there's no place else quite like the University of Notre Dame. The sights and sounds, the history, etc. It's a must when you are in South Bend, IN.

If you have never been to this campus, a visit here is a must. It is so very picturesque...You feel like you are on a movie set, it is so beautiful and near perfect.

If you love college football, put this on your bucket list for a weekend. Come early Friday blots to do Friday and Saturday. Go to mass on Sunday in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Visit the Grotto, the Golden Dome, Touchdown Jesus, the bookstore and Eddy Street Commons.

The campus is very pretty. Architecture is great. The fans, tourists and students are all great. I hope to visit ND again someday. I was in town for a football game.

There is no place like it. Wonderful education in a religious (non-judgmental) setting, surrounded by all the best aspects of a college experience.

This academically prestigious school has such a beautiful campus with miles of walking paths and famous sites to tour. Game day during football season is especially fun, with parties, tailgates, and an exciting game! You should totally come out to visit, especially if you're Irish.

Football weekends are a continuous series of activities. There is plenty to see and do, especially if you are a rabid football fan. Great atmosphere.
