5 College Junior

Academics: No university in the world mixes Catholic teaching of the humanities with teachings such as business, science and engineering

Weather: The Winters are almost exclusively below freezing, sometimes below zero. And since Indiana has very little to show for in terms of hills or elevation difference, it can get very windy and the wind chills will dip below zero semi-regularly. The Falls are very nice and the end of the spring semester can be decent, but overall, weather is probably the worst part of Notre Dame

Technology: Computers and assistance are what you'd expect for an expensive private school.

1 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone is white, and mostly religious, and there is acceptance of other life styles to a certain extent, but no one gets judged too harshly for discrimination. Google the notre dame anti-gay comic scandal for a very scary example.

Greek Life: At Notre Dame, there isn't a Greek life, but there is a dorm system. Everyone seems to love their dorm.

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. The dorm system is a lot of fun. At almost every event, your dorm is competing against others, and it seems that everyone loves their dorm.

Athletics: We have a great football team (and pretty much everyone goes to the games). The facilities for non-athletes are great too, as we have a pool, an indoor track, a huge weight rooms, a ton of courts, and much more.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The student life at Notre Dame is truly unique. Tradition, game days, the life in the dorm, and even a modest Catholic presence on campus is great.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: We have two really nice gyms/workout facilities. Our library is world-renowned, and there is up-to-date technology used in the classrooms.

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.
