Welcome Home, Students! Check Out our Welcome Weekend Resources

Author: Shannon Rooney


This is a weekend of firsts at Notre Dame. We’re welcoming first-year students with residence hall events, cookouts, academic sessions, Mass, and plenty of time for Q&A. If you’re a first-year student, rest assured, you’ll get a complete—and fun—introduction to life at Notre Dame.

“In my opinion, Welcome Weekend is the most important time of the year because it is the first chance we, as a Notre Dame community, get to welcome all of our newest members and their families to campus,” says Maddie Hetlage ’18. Hetlage is a resident of Pasquerilla East Hall and a member of our Orientation Steering Committee. You can meet the committee members via their web pages—and keep a look out for their familiar faces when you arrive on campus.  

Check out the Welcome Weekend website to learn more about the weekend and download the mobile app that will be your guide to move-in and other events.  

Oh, and welcome home! We can’t wait to see you on campus.
