I have really loved my experience at Notre Dame so far. The people are so kind and welcoming- you could approach anyone and strike up a perfect combination. What is more, there is always something to do. Whether it be studying (which there is a fair bit of), or watching the football/basketball games, to simply playing catch on the quad, you will never find yourself bored.

The best part about Notre Dame is the sense of community on campus and amongst it students.
