Athletics

Notre Dame College sponsors 26 varsity intercollegiate scholarship athletic teams. Falcon men’s and women’s teams compete throughout the Great Lakes Region and the nation in a busy schedule from August through May. Among 53 four-year colleges and universities in the state of Ohio, only Ohio State (33 teams) has more athletic teams than Notre Dame.

Falcon student-athletes come to College Road from all around Ohio, the Midwest, the nation, and the globe. In recent years, the Blue & White have earned many successes. Notre Dame student-athletes have attained All-America status on the playing field and Scholar-Athlete honors in the classroom. Falcon teams have garnered multiple conference championships and national championship appearances. Notre Dame Wrestling won NAIA national championships in both 2010 and 2011 and the National Collegiate Wrestling Association's national championship in March 2012. 

Notre Dame is a NCAA Division II institution and a charter member of the newly formed Mountain East Conference. 16 NDC athletic programs will participate in the Mountain East, and the others will participate as Independents.

At Notre Dame College, we subscribe to the NCAA Division II philosophy of "Life in the Balance" which emphasizes "a comprehensive program of learning and development in a personal setting." Because of our adherence to these values, athletics at Notre Dame are an integral part of a unified academic and student life experience. As espoused in our Athletics Philosophy Statement, at Notre Dame we work with our student-athletes to help them become competent students, responsible campus citizens and athletes who can compete.

The NCAA administers athletic programs for more than 400,000 student-athletes competing in three divisions at over 1,000 colleges and universities in the United States, Canada and Central America.

Notre Dame Wrestling also won the NCAA 2014 Wrestling National Title.
