On Saturday August 26, more than 3,000 people joined the 32 core pilgrims of the Notre Dame Trail for the final 3 miles of the walk to campus. The Notre Dame Trail followed the same trek that Father Sorin and the seven Holy Cross brothers who founded the University made 175 years ago at the genesis of Notre Dame. The journey spans from Vincennes, an Indiana city along the Wabash River, to campus, totaling more than 300 miles.
The year 2017 marks the 175th anniversary of the founding of the University of Notre Dame, and "Notre Dame at 175: A Visual History" celebrates this milestone with a collection of outstanding photographs and images.
The University of Notre Dame will premiere “Sorin: A Notre Dame Story,” a one-person play about the life and work of the University’s founder, Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., on Aug. 30 (Wed.) at 6:42 p.m. in the Patricia George Decio Theatre of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.
The University is using most of the advertising space in the departure area of South Bend International Airport to celebrate the 175th anniversary of its founding.
Eight banners, four floor treatments, wall signage and a 20-second recurring video at the baggage carousel will be in place for at least one year. In the coming weeks, a Notre Dame-themed lounge area will also be installed.…
The General Assembly’s resolution recognizes the growth of the University from its humble founding to its current status and makes specific reference to the journey by Father Sorin and his compatriots.
In addition to the free final day, five-day and three-day pilgrimages are offered.
Throughout the excursion from Aug. 13 to 26, participants will walk as a community, building in momentum and number as the travelers draw closer to campus.
