So before we start looking at the campus, I think something very unique to Notre Dame and important to explain is the Notre Dame dorm system. I believe, twenty nine dorms on campus, and they're all single sex. You are required to live in a dorm from your freshman to junior year. Ah, lot of students will continue to stay on campus for their senior year. You're definitely allowed to stay on all four years. You are randomly assigned a dorm and a roommate for your entire freshman year. Once you got this dorm, the majority of students tend to stay there for the entire time that they live on campus. We don't have Greek life, but thie dorm communities kind of create that. So every dorm has whole government charity events, colors, mass gods, sports dances, other social events. Because it has students from freshman to senior year, you can make those relationships that air inter class very easily. Because your roommate is randomly assigned, it gives you an opportunity to meet someone completely different, which totally happened for me, my freshman year roommate Sue Jean Wass, from Seoul, South Korea. She's now one of my best friends, so I think that the Notre Dame dorm system really isn't anything to worry about it all. There are people that have a hard time with their freshman year. May further dorm, but it is something you can change. It's also something that Khun teach you an important life skill about learning Tio. Cope with a roommate That's not so great, So it's very important to know that people have a steadfast allegiance to their dorms and the quad that they live on. When people introduce themselves, they normally include their major there year and which dorm they live in, Which says a lot about our system and another important detail that I almost forgot is I is a senior now live off campus. For three years I lived in a pastoral East Hall. Just actually where I am now and past released is on Mod squad. I was very involved in the hall government and chose to move off campus, too. Learn a little bit more about cooking for myself, budgeting and having that freedom before I'm a full blown adult, so you didn't.
