Notre Dame Main Building Ii

Main Building - Centered at the heart of campus, Notre Dame’s Main Building is home to many different departments and offices, including our own home at Admissions! But what few know is that the current building that stands tall at the end of God Quad is actually the third Main Building for ND, as the first two both were destroyed in mysterious fires. Hey, here at admissions we’re all for creepy and unexplained occurrences, but we kind of hope that our beautiful Main Building is here to stay……

Meet Augie

Author: Augie Collins

Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, I live in a hectic household with eight siblings; seven of them being sisters and the other being my twin brother. In my free time, I like to listen to copious amounts of music, head up to the slopes for some nighttime skiing, and explore the woods with my friends on campus. When I'm at school you can catch me DJing my own radio show for the campus run WVFI radio station, writing for the Scene section of the Observer, or doing research in fluid dynamics pertaining to craters on Mars in Notre Dame's White Field facilities.…

My ND Journey

Author: Augie Collins

For me, my Notre Dame journey started not only before I reached campus here in South Bend, Indiana, but before I had even left grade school. With a father, grandfather, and several uncles all having attended Notre Dame, along with one side of my family residing in Mishawaka, IN (which meant many visits to campus for ice cream from the Huddle), Notre Dame seemed to be as much a part of our family’s identity as anything else. When I was asked about my plans for the future, the only thing on my third grade mind was how I was going to gain admission to this quite literally “golden” university.…

A Thanksgiving Feast

Author: Augie Collins

While most of campus packed their bags and went home for the break, those who chose to stay behind were able to attend a Thanksgiving dinner of their own at the newly renovated North Dining Hall last Thursday. The University treated students, as well as families in the surrounding area, to an extensive buffet including roast carved turkey and pumpkin pie, along with many updates on traditional favorites. The dining hall was adorned with fall-style décor, which, along with the ample lighting, provided a homely atmosphere for everyone in attendance. The tables quickly filled as guests filtered in, and soon the eating area was filled with a cheery buzz as the excellent dining hall staff worked hard to make sure everyone enjoyed their meal. For those students who are not able to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families at home each year, the University reminds us that every student is part of a special second family here at Notre Dame.…

Countdown to Early Action: 2 Campus Lakes

Author: Augie Collins

Moon over lake

Even though Notre Dame’s full name, Notre Dame du Lac, translates to “Our Lady of the Lake,” the 1200-acre campus actually contains two separate lakes! Situated in the northwest corner of campus, it was around St. Mary’s and St. Joseph’s Lake that Father Sorin chose to start the University of Notre Dame in 1842. Back then, the lakes supplied the campus with everything from ice to marl for bricks, but today they have become a favorite spot of students looking to go for a run or those who just want to enjoy the beautiful view.…

Studying Abroad as an Engineer

Author: Augie Collins

Augie Ireland 1

Notre Dame boasts a very robust study abroad program, with more than half of Notre Dame students studying abroad before they graduate. The options for the location of your study abroad excursion are also limitless as well, with the University being very receptive of students wanting to study in an area that Notre Dame does not usually send students. That being said, for some majors it is a bit trickier when trying to navigate the study abroad process. This is why I am here to talk about my experience in studying abroad as an engineering major.…
