Seven teams at the University of Notre Dame will be honored at home football games this fall. The two teams below were honored on September 2 and 9, respectively.

Office of Pre-College Programs

2017 Team Irish Awards

The Office of Pre-College Programs works hard all year to provide hundreds of advanced rising high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to experience life as a University of Notre Dame student on campus and/or abroad.

Their accomplishments are impressive. The Office of Pre-College Programs has doubled the number of applicants who apply to their domestic programs (Summer Scholars and Leadership Seminars), increased their course offerings by 30 percent, built successful international programs in Italy and Ireland, and developed a comprehensive Children’s Protection Policy for minors that is being adopted by other units on campus. Currently, 450 enrolled Notre Dame students are Pre-College alumni.

The Office of Pre-College Programs advances our University’s mission and exemplifies its values by offering quality, service oriented, college accredited academic programs, and by ensuring that students experience a positive and memorable summer at Notre Dame.

In a 12-month span, the Notre Dame Design and Construction Project Team has successfully completed an unprecedented number of campus facilities projects by constructing both new buildings and renovating scores of others. They opened eight new campus buildings between August 2016 and August 2017. These include Corbett Family Hall, Duncan Student Center, Dunne Hall, Flaherty Hall, Jenkins Hall, McCourtney Hall, Nanovic Hall and O’Neill Hall.

These projects exceed 1.3 million square feet, a one-time 12 percent growth in campus. In addition to this amazing feat, they have planned and accomplished hundreds of other campus building improvement, renewal and infrastructure projects in this same period.
