    Notre Dame has arguably the strongest alumni network of any American university. They are so tight knit in their memory of their collegiate experience, a phenomenal one for all who attend. For those religiously inclined, there are many opportunities for one to grow stronger in their faith whether it be in the chapel located in your residence hall or at the beautiful Grotto. As a guy, I am looking forward to the interhall sports, the most extensive intramural program I have seen at any University, including full-pad football. Also, football weekends are legendary.

    Culture on campus is absolutely incredible. From interhall sports to football Saturdays, this is a place where you can immerse yourself in college life and love every minute of it.

    I love being at Notre Dame. The aspect of Notre Dame that I personally enjoy most is the Catholic atmosphere. I love going to Mass in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, especially during Holy Week. Another part of Notre Dame that I particularly enjoy is the dorm life: the unique and tight-knit communities formed in each dorm, the awesome dorm events, and the high level of dorm pride are special at Notre Dame. I love that Notre Dame has single-sex dorms, and that each dorm is paired with a sister or brother dorm. Visiting other colleges, I simply did not see what Notre Dame has. I say these things particularly in regards to my own dorm, Pasquerilla West, which I love! As a dorm, we volunteer together at the South Bend Shelter for the Homeless, pray together in Lent through a reading group, compete (and win!) in intramural sports together, and participate in our signature event, Queen Week. In the dorm, older students are paired with freshmen, who become their little sisters, and we also have regular meetings for freshmen to come talk to older students about academics so they can be better equipped to choose a major. This is only a small fraction of the events in P.W., but it gives you a taste of what dorm life is like! Moreover, I love walking across our beautiful campus. In the fall, there is nothing like the leaves changing to red and yellow as the campus is packed with crowds excited to see the football games. In winter, I love seeing the Golden Dome outlined sharply against a blue-gray sky and the snow clinging to the pine trees. Spring is the most beautiful (in my opinion), with bright yellow daffodils, sweet-smelling lilacs, and the swans on the lakes.
