Favorite place on campus:The Grotto. The Grotto has been a place of great comfort to me; it's where I go to find tranquility during turbulent times and where I go to offer thanks for the peace I've found. I'm always touched to see each entering class come together at The Grotto during Welcome Weekend and even more touched during Senior Week as they make their last trip as a class to sing the Alma Mater.
South Bend recommendation:
Flyfishing on the St. Joseph River and it's tributaries which flow into beautiful Lake Michigan. I also would recommend traveling a bit north and taking in all that the lakeshore has to offer from hiking in the sand dunes to sailing or paddleboarding on one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world. Believe it or not, you can find "third coast surfers" taking advantage of the waves on Lake Michigan - different than ocean surfing but still a lot of fun!
