3 College Sophomore

Administration: Parietals. The dreaded word at ND. You can have your booze, you can try to hide your drugs, but if your girlfriend comes aver past 2 on a weekend or 12 on a weekday, you're in trouble. With that said, it is a perfect excuse to clear your room so you can sleep

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It's pretty tough. You have to pay attention to the syllabus and make sure your ass is in the seat during the lectures, since the professors are unreal.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Almost 1/3 of the class are in the business school, because it is the best and the best curriculum. You have a good amount of premed and alike too.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: If there's a sport, there is a 99.5% chance that we not only have facilities for it, but also an intramural league to play it

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: NDSP starts from day one to prevent incidents through education. Even though the classes suck, they are still better than the shit the victim would have to go through

5 College Sophomore

Majors: It's the best major at the best Business School in the country. What's not to love?

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Because I attend ND, I'm making $10 Grand this summer at a Billion Dollar company. They're hard to snag, especially for rising sophomores, but they are there for the picking

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have never been inside anywhere with as much fraternity as a men's dorm at ND. The girls basically live in a nunnery, but they are more than welcome in the guys dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty of vendors to choose from and they will find you a place if you want one

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: To be honest, you wouldn't expect South Bend to be as bar heavy as it is; so, you never really have to go to the same bar every night unless you want to. Three Quarters of the school will go to Feve on at least one Thursday and the place gets live.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: With the grant I received, Notre Dame was a better deal than most of the public schools I applied to. Very good financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: You get what you paid for.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's the best. Love thee ND.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You won't find anything like this at any other school.

Scholarships: I come from a suburban middle-class family and fall right into the category of "not receiving aid" even though I have two sisters in college and a younger brother who will enter college shortly. I wish ND could have helped my parents more.

Guys & Girls: Girls could be better... but what do you expect at an academic institution? This isn't some state school...

Campus Food: Anything you could possibly want, whenever you want it.

Academics: ND wants you to go to medical school and will do whatever it takes to get you there.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: ND is the ultimate challenge of who you are as a complete person. You will be forced to define yourself academically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally while you spend your time at Notre Dame.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining halls offers lots of differant cuisines, with a differant menu every night. Still, after eating at the dining hall every day, it can get a little dull. There's also a handful of fast food, small cafés, and Legends (sports bar/nightclub).

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is friendly and generally good-looking, but more so guys than girls. Some people think that the single-sex dorms and parietals make things awkward, but I don't see it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of chain resteraunts, but there are some nice local options too. Not a lot of places near campus, so you'll need a car if you want something besides Chipotle or 5 Guys.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are great, with lots of activities to make hallmates bond. From hall sports to dorm Masses and signature events (Keenan Revue, Fisher Regatta, etc.), dorms are your home away from home.

Administration: Hall staff usually aren't too strict--male dorms throw parties and drinking is widely overlooked. My biggest complaint is about parietals--it's a prime example of how the administration sometimes treats students like children.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: While ND has taken steps to increase ethnic diversity on campus, the school is still very much mostly white, upper/middle class, and Christian (specifically Catholic). That being said, my roommate of 2 years is African American, and he seems happy here. There are many cultural productions, such as Asian Allure and Latin Expressions, that help to share different cultures that students might not normally experience.

Campus isn't very political, unless you count the occasional Viewpoint (newspaper opinion section) Wars that occasionally ignite. 80% of students are Catholic, but there is no pressure whatsoever to participate in religious life if you do not want to.

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.
