What Students Are Saying

4.48 Average Rating
Notre Dame is consistently ranked by US News and World Report as one of the best undergraduate teaching programs in the country, and academic rigor has a lot to do with that. Classes, especially in architecture or the sciences, are tough, but they prepare you well to go to graduate school or into the workforce, and most of the professors here are engaging teachers who are also very accessible outside class time. Students collaborate well together, too, which makes the academic expectations challenging but managable.
Marcus from WI
Notre Dame students are best described as having a work hard, play hard mentality. The work load is heavy here, but definitely not impossible. Just make sure you're ready to go hard.
Kathryn from Palatine, IL
Great teachers, great classes, great academic programs. Top business undergraduate college in the country.
