Join ALA for an Extraordinary Custom Tour of The University of Notre Dame
About the University of Notre Dame
The main campus covers 1,250 acres (510 ha) in a suburban setting and contains a number of recognizable landmarks, the Main Building with its signature golden dome, the "Word of Life" mural (commonly known as Touchdown Jesus), the Notre Dame Stadium, and the Basilica. The school was founded on November 26, 1842, by Father Edward Sorin, CSC, who was also its first president.
Started as a small all-male institution in 1842 and charter in 1844, Notre Dame reached international fame at the beginning of the 20th century, aided by the success of its football team under the guidance of coach, Knute Rockne. Major improvements to the university occurred during the administration of the Rev. Theodore Hesburgh between 1952 and 1987. Hesburgh's administration greatly increased the university's resources, academic programs, reputation, and notably enrolled the first women undergraduates in 1972. Ever since, the University has seen steady growth, and under the leadership of the next two presidents, Rev. Malloy and Rev. Jenkins, many infrastructure and research expansions have been completed.
