Notre Dame College is launching a three-year plan to grow its entrepreneurship program with a $15,000 grant from a foundation supporting free enterprise, The Burton D. Morgan Foundation.

The College currently offers an entrepreneurship minor and started an entrepreneurship club, called NDCe, this year. The Business Division plans to add an entrepreneurship major in 2016 and an enterprise development center (EDC@NDC) in 2017. These advancements hinge upon attracting additional funding.

Several Notre Dame College students—regardless of major—will present their works in the 2015 All Student Art Show.

Sponsored by the College’s art club and art department, the juried show begins with an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. March 26 in the Performing Arts Center on campus.

Awards for student art will be announced during the reception. The exhibit continues through April 8.

Notre Dame College presents its first Celebration of Scholarship Week—featuring student creative projects, faculty research and a keynote address by a renowned photographer serving as a visiting fellow—April 13-17.

The week of events kicks off with an art and history-themed lecture on rock musicians from Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow Patrick Harbron, an internationally celebrated photographer, who will remain on campus for an intensive five-day visit.

Notre Dame College students secured several job interviews—and one even earned six job offers—at a Cleveland-area career job fair for education majors.

Nearly 15 students from Notre Dame attended the College’s Career Services Center-sponsored the 2015, and 17th annual, Northeast Ohio Teacher Education Day (NOTED) in Akron, Ohio. Nearly 100 employers from nearly 20 states were recruiting at the fair, which was attended by nearly 500 job seekers from 12 Northeast Ohio schools.

The Sacred Triduum

We are entering the Sacred Triduum….the culmination of the great gift of God’s love in Jesus.  That gift which entered our world when Jesus was born has, throughout the course of time, blossomed into the highest and most perfect gift of human expression — Jesus’s gift of self.  Loving us to the fullest, we are renewed and saved.

Notre Dame College students are offering free tax preparation for low-income Cuyahoga County residents again this year.

College students file tax returns in an effort to save residents money—not only with free tax preparation, but also with increased refunds from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
