Graduate Student Life


We ♥ ND Graduate Students!

Pursuing an advanced degree requires intense focus, discipline, commitment, and even sacrifice, but it also requires a living, breathing, functioning person. Furthermore, it demands maturity, persistence, creativity, and a sense of purpose. These and other attributes of successful graduate students are nurtured in academic as well as co-curricular settings. The role of Graduate Student Life is to provide a wide range of resources and experiences outside of the classroom, library, or lab to assist students in sustaining a healthy and happy life at Notre Dame. | Learn More
