The ND Experience

It has been said, “Whoever leaves Notre Dame, hopes to see it again.” What is it about the Notre Dame experience that affects people in such a deep and profound way? While the bond is common, the reasons are as varied as the people that work, live, teach, and study here. The University offers a rich environment, full of diverse activities and opportunities — no one experience is quite the same. We pride ourselves in being more than just an employer by fostering an environment where fun, entertainment, physical activity, and growth — both intellectual and spiritual — are all important.

As part of that focus, our University faculty and staff enjoy numerous amenities on and around campus:

Sports and Entertainment

  • Purchase discounted tickets to local athletic events — such as football, basketball, and hockey
  • Enjoy numerous intramural leagues — including the world’s largest 5 on 5 tournament in the world on the Bookstore courts
  • Access more types of athletic gyms, courts, and fields than you can imagine
  • Spend some time outside near one of our two lakes or along our extensive running and biking paths

Intellectual Growth

  • Attend a variety of world class artistic and musical events — from theatrical performances to poetry readings
  • Attend guest lecturers and attend conferences and seminars
  • Enroll in adult education or continuing education classes (employees receive exceptional tuition reimbursement benefits!)

Spiritual Growth

  • Continue your spiritual growth at the most renowned Catholic university in the world
  • Enjoy a mass in the Sacred Heart Basilica
  • Engage in silent reflection at the Grotto
  • Become part of a community that welcomes all religious faiths and beliefs
