It only took us a couple of hours to walk around the campus. The main building was beautiful. The Basilica next door was locked but nice from outside. Drop by the outdoor grotto to light a candle for a loved one. And of course the...More

I visit ND annually, but most recently to attend a football game. For these events, the entire Notre Dame community comes alive and goes into overdrive. Fans, students, administration and employees are incredibly friendly, outgoing and want everyone to enjoy the event. This relatively small...More

We drove thru the campus just looking at it. It is a nice large campus which is easy to get around. I'm sure it would be a lot prettier in the summer instead of winter.

You have to visit this legendary place...at least once. I did the Football Stadium Tour and it was so cool to see all the nostalgic stuff.

We spent the Friday before a Notre Dame game exploring the campus. First we stopped by the stadium where they had the stadium open. Fans could come in, walk down the tunnel, and see the field. There were many ushers who were more than happy...More

As a fan of the opposition, we were concerned our trip would be miserable. Quite the opposite. South Bend was exactly what I hoped for in a Fall football experience

previous visits to South Bend had not allowed time to see anything significant at Notre Dame; however, over a period of 2 - plus days I was able to see interiors of several buildings. So much great history there--academic and athletic.

Hard to believe that a university campus could blow your mind, but Notre Dame did just that. Even if you are not Catholic, you will be amazed at the architecture and grounds. If you are Catholic, you will be awestruck by the grotto and the...More
