The Notre Dame men’s and women’s cross country teams used their competition-free days last week to reach out to local elementary school kids.

The teams spent Thursday afternoon at Adrian Elementary School in South Euclid talking to students in the MAC Scholar program about the importance of education and explaining how student-athletes set goals for the future.

President Andrew P. Roth was interviewed by WCLV FM 104.9 radio personality Bill O’Connell on the state of affairs at Notre Dame College. His candid remarks, from the success of the upcoming third annual “Books That Changed the World” seminar series to his description of College signature programs to insight on this year’s record enrollment, are presented here in entirety.
