Welcome to Top Ten Tuesdays! This series focuses on different top tens relevant to the world of college. Each week a different intern shares their top ten list. Additionally, look out on social media for video vlogs that may go along with the list. This week Savannah Carr shares her top ten social media accounts to follow.
Top 10 ND Social Media Accounts
Coming into Notre Dame, one of the first things students do is follow a lot of social media accounts to make sure that they are in the loop about, well, everything! So, I have compiled a list of Instagram accounts that you can follow to get all types of information and entertainment!
Notre Dame: @notredame
Saint Mary’s College: @saintmaryscollege
Holy Cross College: @holycrossnd
Following the University’s official account is a crucial part of being a student. The main account posts things regarding the whole university, like main events and beauty shots, and it's always nice to scroll through and stay updated with the school! I have also included the accounts for Saint Mary’s College and Holy Cross College, because I believe that it's important to stay informed with all things regarding the tri-campus community!
Fighting Irish Sports: @thefightingirish
This account is the official profile for Notre Dame Athletics, and they post a lot of highlights from all the sports teams! I enjoy watching the reels and videos they put together that showcases the players and their accomplishments. If you are a sports fan, or you just enjoy supporting the sports teams (like me), this account is crucial to follow!
Notre Dame Admissions: @ndadmissions
Of course I had to add our account here! This account is not only for prospective students – lots of our posts do pertain to giving more information about the school, but the stories and highlights showcase student life here on campus! Many current students do takeovers and show their daily lives at ND, so this is a great account to see many different student perspectives!
Student Government: @ndstugov
Student Union Board: @subnd
Student Activities: @sao_nd
Diversity Council: @nddiversitycouncil
These accounts inform their followers about student events, activities, clubs, and giveaways on campus! It's also important to stay involved with student government and know who your representatives are, so that we can promote awareness, understanding, and kindness for each student at Notre Dame and in the tri-campus community.
Flaherty Hall: @flaherty_hall
Resident life is a huge part of your community at ND, and it's so fun to follow your hall’s specific page. Since I live in Flaherty Hall, I love to see the pictures they post of my friends, and it's always nice to stay updated with dorm specific events and to see the wonderful people that live here!
Class of 2023: @class2023nd
Class of 2024: @class2024nd
Class of 2025: @ndclass25
Class of 2026: @ndclass26
It’s crucial to follow your class council account to stay updated with class specific events, merch, sales, and more! You are going to graduate alongside your fellow classmates, so it's important to know them and really expand your network!
Domers On A Bench: @domersonabench
These accounts really put the beauty of Notre Dame on display. Some of the best shots of campus—showcasing the different seasons, the lakes, the dome, and of course the students—are posted here. Different ND stories are also shared, and this truly allows followers to know the community and know why people feel so at home on campus.
Alumni & Friends: @ndalumni
I like to follow this account because I feel a greater bond with the ND family. Lots of their posts consist of what’s going on around campus and highlights connecting with all generations of Domers and Irish fans!
Religion & Faith
Campus Ministry: @ndministry
Faith is a huge part of the culture at Notre Dame, and that looks different for every single student. This account is great to follow to also stay updated with events regarding religion and faith, and all are welcome to join and learn more. It's very important to share different perspectives and experiences so that we could be a more inclusive community!
Lastly, I would recommend following this page since it highlights new foods to try across campus! They always take the most beautiful pictures of the food, and it never fails to make me hungry! If you are a foodie like me, this is also a crucial account to follow!
