5 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors are absolutely incredible on campus, they are really there to help you learn and grow as a person. The workload can be heavy at times (especially for engineers) but you get through it and there are soo many people who are willing to help you.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I think our diversity is pretty good. However, you must also understand that there are a lot of Notre Dame students who are athletic, conservative, white, upper-middle class, and Catholic. That being said, there are SOO many other ways to judge diversity than checking boxes like that.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is a lot of alcohol on campus, but pretty much no other drugs. While most people drink some, you can have a great social life even if you don't, and there's no pressure to drink if you don't want to.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Notre Dame alumni network is absolutely incredible. Just randomly running into a Notre Dame alumni in a foreign country immediately turned into a networking connection and has the potential for an internship. Domers love helping other domers!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had really great professors so far. All of them really care about you as a student and your well-being and want to help you succeed but also be a good person.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. It's well lit at night and I have been out numerous times by myself (as a female) in the middle of the night and have never felt unsafe doing so.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus! The dorms are a great system and give you an automatic family. You become really close to the people in your dorm but at the same time also get to know people from other dorms which is really nice.

Athletics: Our school spirit and support for our athletic teams is absolutely incredible. I love going to games and they're so fun because so many people go. Most of our students were athletes in high school so if they aren't playing a varsity sport they are probably still active on campus. Interhall sports (between dorms) are big, super fun and can get pretty competitive. There are also typical intramurals and co rec sports.

Athletics: Everyone goes out to watch the football games. We are known for our touchdown Jesus.

Greek Life: Notre Dame doesn't have a Greek Life, rather students are randomly assigned to one of the 28 dorms on campus. People generally grow pretty attached to their dorm and the people they live with. There is a huge sense of pride and family within each dorm and from my experience this dorm lifestyle sort of provided a surrogate Greek Life without having to apply or rush. Personally, this Greek Life-esque community in the absence of an Greek system was one of the things that attracted me to Notre Dame. It's got the connections and family feel without having to be accepted. You are already "accepted" and don't have to prove anything to anyone.

Athletics: Football, basketball, and hockey are probably the biggest sports, with football being the major one by far. Football game days are awesome! Campus is buzzing with excitement all day and that continues into the stadium during the game. The student section is a ton of fun and almost all undergrads attend the games.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

"Wonderful," "amazing," "special," "family"-these are the most common words that students use to describe their times at Notre Dame. The University has a unique atmosphere that is embraced by many; the campus is basically self-contained, the dorms are all very close-knit, and there are truly strong connections between students. While the weather may test your survival skills and the administration may try your patience, the Notre Dame experience is unlike any other you'll ever have. The school's tradition and history create an environment where you'll feel welcomed the moment you step foot on campus.

Notre Dame is not an easy school, and it's important to remember that academics are huge. Above all else, you need to be willing to study and focus, or you're not going to make it through the University's workload. Students here are universally dedicated to their studies, and campus life reflects it. This is not a party school. Students may find themselves frustrated by the value system or the lack of outside activities. The best recommendation for Notre Dame is to visit and check out campus life firsthand. Often, the atmosphere alone is enough to sway your feelings one way or the other.
