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.

In my family there are many athletes I am not one of them. I've never been much of a sports fan and I can hardly even appreciate some sports. But the University of Notre Dame in South Bend Indiana was far from a letdown. So much fun and history packed into one beautiful campus. It's like it's own little city!

We brought the family back again; our teen son is a huge fan of Notre Dame, so this year we surprised him with basketball tickets. This was our first visit to the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. The parking was such a breeze compared to the football game we attended previously. This is an awesome venue; staff was friendly... More

We came with family to visit the school and have a tour the following day. The campus is one of the most beautiful college campuses I have ever seen. The staff and students were very friendly and helpful on any questions we had on campus. The Basilica was one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen, and is... More

Who knew Notre Dame Brick was a copyrighted color?? Every building has to be made of this stuff, and the grounds are exquisite. I couldn't care less about this school and I'm sure not Catholic, but it was fun to waste a few hours there waking around.

Even if you're not there for school, walking around campus is surreal. The football weekends are amazing. Stop by the grotto for some truly peaceful self reflection time

It is a lovely located university with lakes on its campus. There are located several "must see" buildings like gorgeous Basilica of Sacred Heart, Library with a Touchdown Jesus, Art Museum with extraordinary collection, Notre Dame Stadium and more.... It is really big campus so I one time I took my bike to move between buildings and attraction. It was... More

Football weekend, to see Georgia Tech vs. Notre Dame....absolutely the best trip of my life! The Notre Dame Campus is magnificent. The football game was a winner!! The entire Notre Dame experience was beyond words. Actually a single weekend was too short to see everything. Another trip to South Bend is in the works.
