Notre Dame College is enhancing its campus in time for fall—and its centennial—with a quarter of a million dollars in updates.

In preparation for the new academic year that starts Monday, August 29, the College is remodeling its dining hall, installing new security cameras in residence halls, modernizing selected classrooms, updating some sidewalks and entries around its Administration Building and paving the parking lots. It also has introduced new digital signs in several buildings and is planning to update directional signage around the facilities.

The enhancements already in progress comprise an investment of more than $250,000.

Notre Dame is still accepting applications for its fall semester. Scholarships are available in more than 30 different academic programs. The College supports performing arts in choral, instrumental, theatre, dance and cheer for students of all levels, including beginners. The Falcons also field 19 NCAA Division II athletics and four varsity sports programs, including football, rugby and now acrobatics and tumbling, among others.

The Connelly Center dining hall is receiving new flooring and fresh paint, while concrete sidewalks and entryways around the historical Administration Building will be replaced. Parking lots across the 50-acre campus also will be restored. New security cameras have been purchased and are being installed to improve on-campus housing. In addition, new monitors and projectors will modernize several classrooms in the Administration Building and Regina Hall, and the third phase of the Title III Grant is being completed with the construction of the new Intelligence Studies and Emergency Management Tech Lab, part of the Center for Intelligence and Security Studies, also in Regina.

The College already has unveiled digital signage in its dining hall, Keller Center and Falcon Café and will add additional screens on two floors in the Administration Building and to all three floors of Regina Hall. The Admissions Office also will update its monitor to a digital sign.

Signage around campus and on buildings will be enhanced to better direct visitors. These markers also will highlight the College’s newly renovated Grotto.

Banners on the grounds and along South Green Road from Cedar Avenue to Mayfield Road in South Euclid also will be renewed.

In addition to welcoming students back to campus this fall, the facilities and grounds improvements also will help set the stage for the Notre Dame Centennial celebrations, which kick off with a 100th birthday party on Sunday, September 18.

The College selected September 18 because on September 18th, 1922, Notre Dame College opened its doors to 13 women and 11 novices.

The Centennial honors the College’s first century of success and looks forward to those to come with events all year long.

This festive 100th birthday party opening will unite students, staff and the community in celebration of the College and what it means to all who are a part of the Notre Dame family. With a lineup of distinguished speakers and engaging activities, the College will walk through its history and delve into the qualities that make Notre Dame an amazing place to learn, work and succeed.
