Snapshots of life at Notre Dame College

Do you remember when Mother Teresa visited Notre Dame College? Do you remember hanging out in the Willow Room in the basement? Do you remember when the fourth floor of the Administration Building housed the Sisters of Notre Dame and was off limits for students? These alumni do as they share their favorite Notre Dame anecdotes.

To celebrate our graduates, we wanted to find out what a typical day in the life of Notre Dame College alumni looks like. We asked them to send in a photo on March 26, 2012, the day we began our year-long celebration of the College's 90th anniversary.

On March 26, 1922, Mother Mary Cecilia Romen, the Mother General of the Sisters of Notre Dame, wrote a letter to Cleveland Bishop Joseph Schrembs asking for permission to open a college. The rest, as they say, is history. Our history.

Take a stroll through time with this collection of photos from the College’s archives. In addition to the 90 photos published in the print edition of Notre Dame Today, the slideshow below includes another 192 images. They provide a snapshot of life at NDC over the past nine decades.

The purpose of a liberal arts education and the mission of the College, she says, are to help students become a transformative presence in their community.
