Notre Dame Yik Yaks

Author: Katie Martin


Yik Yak is the new app being used by college campuses as an anonymous bulletin board where people can create, view, upvote or downvote "Yaks" within a 1.5 mile radius. Every now and then, I find some heart-warming Yaks that I know only Notre Dame could get. Here are some of my favorites from the past few weeks. Enjoy!



“People who talk about ND being such a safe campus obviously haven’t walked alone at night down a dimly lit sidewalk and encountered one of the massive squirrels.”

Squirrels are the real deal here. Just do a twitter search for “Notre Dame Squirrels” and check out some more ND squirrel pictures. It's a beautiful thing.



Take a second and think about how we have arguably the most iconic university in America #domerz

Just think of how many photos you can take of the Golden Dome, the Grotto, or the Word of Life mural (Touchdown Jesus). It will never get old! The picture above is from our instagram - check it out!



a seat in hes with both a window and an outlet = prime real estate.”

I laughed when I saw this, because of all of the times that I have I gone up and down the floors in the library, roaming and trying to find a window seat. This being prime real estate is truth – refer to this ND admissions tumblr post.



There are 8000 students here and every single one of them goes to SDH at 12:20

South Dining Hall experiences a wave of people getting out of their 11-12:15 class. This and 6 o'clock dinner time gets pretty crowded. Good luck.



Notre Dame is the only place I’ve seen a guy in a suit walking and eating a PB&J Uncrustable.

Even through attending networking events, presenting cases in class, and going to career fairs, we’re still college students. If a PB&J Uncrustable is $1 at the Huddle, then we’re going to have a PB&J Uncrustable. We’re on the run, after all.


I brought sheets with schematics of star wars ships with me to school.

Actually, I don’t have an explanation or a picture for this last one. Just know that it had 76 upvotes.
