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.

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.

The campus is well laid out and picturesque. We were there on a non-football weekend so it was low key. Very pretty and well maintained. Students were friendly.

We stopped to visit the campus on a very quiet Saturday morning. It was early fall and the trees were beautiful.

This campus is just so beautiful and the history of it is amazing. So much too see, Even if you are not a Notre Dame fan you should visit this campus if you are in the area. We are very glad that we did.

Recently attended the Pitt football game with 3 friends. We walked the campus and visited the bookstore on Friday afternoon and again on Saturday. The experience was great. Campus was clean, people were friendly and things were well-marked.

Great great campus. Everything is so clean and easy to get around. So many things to do. You can eat in the student halls with the students for a small fee. The food is good and different things to eat. You can visit the cathedral,...More
