Renowned for its rich athletic tradition, the university is a beautiful place to visit, with such religious attractions as the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, the park-like setting of its huge stadium and the abundant artwork.

The campus is gorgeous. It is very well laid out. The buildings are all stone. My son is thinking of going to Notre Dame. He has 3 years to make that decision!

We were passing through the area and were hoping for a stadium tour. The tours didn’t start until noon. Since we wouldn’t be in the area long enough/on that timeframe, I inquired if there was any possibility for an exception to pop in briefly to...More
