Sit Down with the Mayor of Dublin

Author: Coffman, Samuel

“GOOOOO IRISH! Go Irish! BEEEAAATTTT NAVY! Beat Navy!”

The crowds, predominantly fans of the Fighting Irish, cheered those familiar chants on Notre Dame Street in Dublin, Ireland. Fans of the Fighting Irish and the people of Dublin had flocked to the street to catch a glimpse of the action.

I had set up an interview with the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Daithí de Róiste. His office gave me his Whatsapp number, with instructions to just text him and meet up on Notre Dame Street before the game.…

How to Sing the Alma Matter and Fight Song

Author: Scholastic Staff

Some incoming freshmen have had the Fight Song and the Alma Mater ingrained in their minds since birth. But for many students the first time they hear these songs will be at the first pep rally or the opening school-wide Mass. Here, Scholastic gives you an introduction to the lyrics that, by the time you graduate in 2027, you’ll know as well as your own name.…

Why Notre Dame: A Primer on Our Lady's University

Why Notre Dame: A Primer on Our Lady's University

Author: Scholastic Staff

Notre Dame is a unique place. It’s situated in the heart of the Midwest, and its single-sex dorms, parietals and unyielding Catholic identity may seem archaic to an outsider.

Yet the vast majority of alumni speak highly of their alma mater, continue to donate to the university and attend football games years after graduating. Many employers gush at the prospect of hiring Notre Dame students. So, what is it about Notre Dame that makes it so special?…

Snite to be Replaced by the Raclin Murphy Museum of Art

Snite to be Replaced by the Raclin Murphy Museum of Art

Author: Corinne Quane

At the far end of South Quad, lining the side of O’Shaughnessy Hall, sits a small and unique art museum. Largely visited by students for class discussion or as a quiet study spot during finals, the Snite Museum of Art is thought to be a charming aspect of Notre Dame’s campus. However, in Nov. 2023, the Snite is set to close, and a larger, newer building is set to open: The Raclin Murphy Museum of Art.…

College Roommates

College Roommates

Author: Annie Dineen

Notre Dame is probably one of the few institutions left that requires their first-year students to live with a roommate, for a full year, who is randomly assigned to them. I remember the summer before freshman year when my home friends were scouring their future university’s various “Class of 2025” Instagram pages for a potential roommate. Surely, it is a daunting task to try and select a roommate from only three to five photos and a generic caption. If I had a nickel every time I read the statement “I love to go out, but I am also down for a chill night in,” I might be able to make a dent in my tuition. But as part of Notre Dame’s ambition to create a real community, without exclusivity or isolation of a particular student, random roommates are assigned to each incoming first-year, as well as a random room assignment. Unfortunately, that means you are less likely to coordinate your room to look like a perfect Pinterest photo with matching bedding and posters.…

Notre Dame and Native American Heritage Month

Author: Mia Moran

November is Native American Heritage Month. As Thanksgiving break comes to an end, it is important to take time to not just reflect on the pilgrims who celebrated their harvest almost 400 years ago, but also to commemorate the past and present Native Americans and their land which we stand on.

Construction at Notre Dame - What’s Hiding Behind the Chain-linked Fence?

Construction at Notre Dame - What’s Hiding Behind the Chain-linked Fence?

Author: Corinne Quane

Chain-linked fences are scattered across campus in front of Hesburgh library, on the bank of St. Mary’s lake, to the right of Johnson Family Hall hiding construction projects from onlookers. It seems that as soon as one fence comes down, another goes up. Students and visitors peer through gaps in the tarps, trying to decipher the faded project descriptions hanging on the fences in an attempt to guess at what is being built next.

The Migrant Network: Technology as a Force for Good

The Migrant Network: Technology as a Force for Good

Author: Jonah Tran

In a contemporary age dominated by technology, tech companies are invariably dedicated to the research, development and production of the next big platform — the next Instagram, the next Facebook, the next TikTok. Such companies do so to generate profits and capitalize on the mass number of people now living their lives online. However, as of late, tech companies have been under harsh criticism and governmental scrutiny. Facebook and TikTok are among the most relevant examples. As consumer confidence in tech companies has diminished, the concept of “doing good” seems at odds with technological advancement. However, a development from Notre Dame’s IDEA Center exemplifies how the two categories aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive.

Storming the Field

Storming the Field

Author: Allison Clark

Nov. 5 was a great day for Notre Dame football fans. Notre Dame started off strong against No. 4 Clemson, scoring the first touchdown of the game roughly six minutes into the first quarter. The Irish didn’t look back, romping to a 35-14 triumph. 

This wasn’t just like any other game for Irish fans. It was the first time playing Clemson on home turf since Notre Dame’s victory over the Tigers on Nov. 7, 2020 in double overtime. Clemson was ranked No. 1 at the time, and, immediately after the unexpected win, students stormed the field.
