Campus was beautiful! Spent about an hour on self guided walking tour. Everything is close together and landscape is very well kept! And even for an Auburn tiger enjoyed it very much!

Beautiful! We rented the “lime bikes” around South Bend and explored during our bike ride. Took a ride around the lake and stopped to see some of the pretty buildings!

What an enchanting atmosphere. Go on a tour! Worth your time. A walk around the campus and most especially around the lakes will show you what a special place this truly is.

We were in the area and decided to take the walking tour, so glad we did. The campus is beautiful and full of history. The Basilica is the highlight of the tour.
