Hi! My name is Andrea Bahaia and I am a junior studying Business Analytics and Psychology. I am from El Salvador, but lived in Lyons and Lewis Hall on campus. Besides working with International Admissions, I am involved in other clubs on campus such as Student International Business Council and Pakta Consulting, as well as doing volunteering work. I love doing homework near the lake, lighting a candle at the grotto before my exams or just enjoying time with my friends. Also, I really love football season because weekends are about tailgating and enjoying the game. However, the best part of it all is singing the Alma Mater at the end of every game, no matter if we win or lose, we are ND and nothing else matters. Notre Dame has helped me grow in so many ways that I am certain it has been the best decision I have made. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I would love to talk to you more on my experience at Notre Dame and help you in whatever I can.
Hello! My name is Christian Brunner-Lopez and I’m a Junior studying Finance and European Studies. I was born in Toronto and am half Spanish/half Austrian by nationality. After growing up in various regions of the world, I graduated from school near Toronto whilst my family lived in South Africa. On campus, I stay in Dillon Hall which is located right next to the South Dining Hall. Outside of my role in International Admissions, you can find me on the ice at Compton playing with the Club Ice Hockey team, being involved with Unleashed social ventures and the Student International Business Council, working out at the Rock, or visiting the Grotto in the evening. I spend a lot of time during the week in Coleman-Morse and walking around campus, both to study and to socialize with friends from all over South and West Quad, but on the weekends I enjoy watching sports with friends whether it be football in the stadium, hockey at Compton, or European soccer on TV. The one thing that always moves me is that Notre Dame is a truly inspiring place with limitless opportunities and friendly people. I hope you'll be able to experience the same and I’m here to help out - please reach out if you have any further questions!
Hi! I am Isabella Di Bono and I am from Tegucigalpa, Honduras. I am currently a sophomore studying fine arts with a specialization in painting. On campus I live in Badin Hall which is located in south quad. When I’m not in class or hitting the books at Hesburgh Library or Coleman-Morse, I’m most probably at Riley painting or at “LaFun” on late night snack runs. I also love to go to the lake to relax and read when it is not too cold. Outside of school I enjoy spending time catching up with my friends, finding new places to eat in South Bend, or just relaxing someplace warm. I think that coming to Notre Dame was by far the right choice for me and I would not want to spend these four years anywhere else. I’m always happy to talk about Notre Dame or to answer any questions you have, so please don’t hesitate to contact me, I’m always happy to help.

Hey! My name is Rafael Lacayo and I’m a senior studying Finance and Economics from Managua, Nicaragua. Although I say I am from Nicaragua being it is the easiest answer, I have moved eleven times in my life, so I am sure at some point I have been to your country. On campus, I used to be a Mobster from O’Neill Hall, but since junior year I did a semester in London, one at the University Edge apartments, and now I live in a house off campus (with 5 roommates). On campus, I have enjoyed being part of a couple of business clubs and intramural sports, with my favorite spots being the Grotto and the football stadium. Also, I can talk to you about any sport or tv show you like. Notre Dame is really a one in a kind place, and I have had the best four years of my life here. Please, feel free to contact me regarding any questions you have, I would love to help!
