Campus Housing: Convenience and dorm atmosphere are excellent, but many of the dorms are outdated. Renovations are being rolled out though, so this is not much of a detraction.

Athletics: Most students are extremely involved in sports in some way, and while Notre Dame football rules the fall semester, other sports such as basketball and hockey are well attended, and most sports are extremely competitive nationally. School spirit is extremely high. Facilities are phenomenal and are continuing to be improved.

Overall Experience: There is an extremely welcoming community and while students are competitive, they are not cutthroat. There is a strong Catholic identity on campus, but it is not overwhelming.

Campus Housing: All of the dorms are very close knit and provide a strong sense of inclusion. The room options are very nice as you get older.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Notre Dame is Notre Dame. It's got great football and great academics. But come spring semester and it can be really hard to find worthwhile events. People are super nice but so many people are the same. It's a bit frustrating at times. Also, I know my friends at other schools are having a lot more fun. I know it should all lay off in the future but it can be difficult to see the purpose of sacrificing your best four years.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors are excellent, however sometimes, its clear that they mostly do research and only teach one class and so that class is really boring.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm was built in the last 20 years so its great, but some dorms are very old and falling apart and need major renovations. They did just announce that renovations will being completed in some of the worst dorms in the next two years however.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Football Saturday's in the fall are the best, but I also enjoy going to basketball, soccer, volleyball, and hockey games.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I was extremely well prepared for the challenges that my school poses for me and been able to balance academics, extra-curriculars, and social activities.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football team usually does well during the season.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: While it is a Catholic school, there are interesting and varying viewpoints across the board. There are many incredible peers, graduate students, instructors and professors that are passionate about what they do.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I don't think I could give this a higher rating unless there are 0 sexual assaults happening. I think the university and student government all they can to prevent sexual assault, but at the end of the day it comes down to whether or not some drunk idiot is going to make the right decision.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Strong sense of community is nice, but we pay an absurd amount of money to have such small rooms without air conditioning. Buildings are old and outdated. They need rennovations

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The atmosphere during football season is amazing, but some of the equipment in the Roc is old and outdated. It's an old building, and you can tell because it feels like they just tried to make this building into a gym, it doesn't feel like that's what it's purpose was because the layout, especially the weight room, could have been done better.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is such a strong sense of community, especially in the dorms. A lot of people don't like the dorms on campus when they visit, but dorm life is such an integral part of the campus community, and it's an awesome experience once you're here.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It is great. The only girls who are sexually assaulted are those who get really drunk at parties. Moral of the story is do not party with guys you do not trust.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Notre Dame football all the way! Although I am more of a baseball fan living in a football crazed world.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Everyone cares about your safety at Notre Dame

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far all of my professors have been intelligent and passionate!

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.
