UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME History •

The University of Notre Dame du Lac was founded in 1842 by Father Edward Sorin. Adjacent to South Bend, Ind., and nestled next to Saint Mary’s and Saint Joseph’s Lakes, the University was started with $310 in cash and three log buildings in disrepair. Notre Dame would establish many firsts for Catholic institutions of higher learning, including the first Catholic law school, the first Catholic engineering school and the first student residence with private rooms, Sorin Hall.

Students •

Graduate and undergraduate students at the University come from all 50 states and more than 100 countries worldwide.

Notre Dame’s graduation rate of 95 percent is exceeded by only Harvard and Princeton.

Notre Dame’s 98 percent retention rate between the freshman and sophomore years is among the highest in the country, thanks in large part to the University’s unique First Year of Studies Program.

Academics •

The University is organized into four colleges - Arts and Letters, Science, Engineering and the Mendoza College of Business - the School of Architecture, the Law School, the Graduate School, six major research institutes, more than 40 centers and special programs and the University library system.

Notre Dame is among a select group of schools that ranks in the top 25 on the U.S. News & World Report survey of the nation’s top colleges and in the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Directors’ Cup for overall success in athletics.

Community service is a hallmark of Notre Dame. About 80 percent of Notre Dame students engage in some form of voluntary community service during their years at the University, and at least 10 percent devote a year or more after graduation to service in the United States and around the world.

The University’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) annually sends 180 recent graduates to teach in some 100 understaffed Catholic schools in the southern, southeastern and southwestern United States and in South Bend. A national model, ACE has received the Higher Education Award from the Corporation for National Service for leadership in using national service resources through AmeriCorps.

Notre Dame has one of the highest undergraduate residential concentrations of any national university, with 80 percent of its students living in 27 residence halls.

Alumni

Notre Dame is rated among the nation’s top 25 institutions of higher learning in surveys conducted by U.S. News and World Report, Princeton Review, Time, Kiplinger’s, and Kaplan/Newsweek. Notre Dame ranks fifth in a listing of “dream schools” in a survey of parents by the Princeton Review. The top five are Princeton, Stanford, Harvard, New York University and Notre Dame.

Service

The medical school acceptance rate of the University’s preprofessional studies graduates is 80 percent, almost twice the national average.

Notre Dame ranks first among Catholic universities in the number of doctorates earned by its undergraduate alumni - a record compiled over some 85 years.

The University’s network of 270 alumni clubs -- including 60 international clubs -- is the most extensive in higher education.

With graduates renowned for their loyalty and generosity, Notre Dame annually ranks among the top five in percentage of alumni who contribute to the University.

In recent years, Notre Dame alumni have won a Nobel Prize in medicine, a Pulitzer Prize in journalism, and an Emmy Award for contributions to television technology.

First Year of Studies The First Year of Studies program provides all first-year students with the opportunity to gain a wide-ranging liberal arts background before choosing a specific major within Notre Dame’s five undergraduate colleges. A progressive advising program for all student-athletes enables the University to follow the academic progress of all student-athletes on a regular basis. Key to the program is the fact that it is not run by the athletics department but by the University administration. Student-Athlete Success Notre Dame expects the best out of its student-athletes just as it does of every other student on campus. Notre Dame has had unprecedented academic success among its athletes, consistently ranking among the top NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision schools in graduation rates and academic progress. With more Academic All-Americans than any other school since 2000, Irish athletes have shown themselves capable of performing in the classroom while competing on the field at an elite level.

THIS IS NOTRE DAME

The University of Notre Dame When Father Edward F. Sorin started his school in the northern Indiana wilderness, he had only $300, three log buildings badly in need of repair and a far-sighted vision of establishing a liberal arts school to meet the growing educational needs of the frontier. He dreamed of building a great university, and in 1842, he founded the University of Notre Dame du Lac. Over the years, the University of Notre Dame du Lac would evolve into a preeminent place for Catholic thought. While becoming one of the top undergraduate institutions in the country, Notre Dame has also been at the cutting edge of research, including such innovations as the transmission of wireless messages and the development of synthetic rubber. The University also has stressed residential life, with four of five students living on campus. Students come to Notre Dame not only to learn how to think, but to learn how to live, keeping faith with the vision of Father Sorin.

Jack Swarbrick Director of Athletics

John B. “Jack” Swarbrick Jr., a University of Notre Dame graduate who has risen to national prominence as a lawyer, consultant, and executive in the collegiate and Olympic sports industries, is in his second year as director of athletics at his alma mater. His first year on campus in 2008-09 featured the announcement of plans for a new, free-standing ice hockey arena; creation of an athletic administrative division to enhance athletic performance — plus 35 All-Americans, eight Academic All-Americans and four NCAA postgraduate Scholarship winners. Notre Dame teams in 2008-09 finished as the NCAA runner-up in both women’s soccer (26-1, led by Hermann Trophy winner Kerri Hanks) and fencing (men 33-0, women 32-2), while the women’s tennis squad advanced to the NCAA semifinals. The Irish men’s soccer squad was seeded 14th in the NCAA bracket, while the hockey team ranked fourth in the final poll after winning CCHA regular-season and postseason crowns. Men’s lacrosse finished unbeaten in the regular season (and second in the final poll) -- and women’s lacrosse won its first BIG EAST title. Notre Dame also ranked number one in the country (among Football Bowl Subdivision schools) in the most recent Graduation Success Rate (GSR) numbers with a 98 for all student-athletes. The 2009 Academic Progress Rate (APR) statistics included more perfect 1,000 scores by Irish teams (nine) than by any other FBS institution.   Raised in Yonkers, N.Y., and Bloomington, Ind., Swarbrick is a 1976 magna cum laude graduate of Notre Dame with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Upon graduating from Stanford University Law School in 1980, he returned to Indiana to accept a position as an associate in the Indianapolis law firm Baker & Daniels. He was made partner in 1987 and spent 28 years overall with the firm. As a member of the Indiana Sports Corporation, including the chairmanship from 1992 to 2001, Swarbrick’s leadership efforts resulted in the city earning the bid to host the 2012 Super Bowl; becoming the home of the NCAA headquarters; and hosting the 1987 Pan American Games, the 1991 World Gymnastics Championships, NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Fours, and other college championship competitions plus a wide array of national and world championships in the Olympic sports. He served as sports commissioner of the 1982 U.S. Olympic Festival in Indianapolis, competition director of the ’87 Pan American Games, and chairman of the ’91 World Gymnastics Championships.  Swarbrick has served as general counsel for numerous national governing bodies of Olympic sports, including USA Gymnastics and USRowing. Born March 19, 1954, Swarbrick and his wife Kimberly are the parents of four children: Kate, a senior at Saint Louis University; Connor, a junior at Wake Forest University; Cal, a senior in high school; and Christopher, a high school junior.

Season in Review

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish played in the NCAA Central Regional for the third consecutive season, marking the first time in program history the Irish have appeared in three consecutive NCAA Championship fields. The Irish also had three All-BIG EAST honorees.

2009-10 Season in Review After opening the 2009-10 campaign with a preseason trip to Ireland, the Fighting Irish women’s golf team racked up an approximate 15,500 miles of travel over the course of what turned out to be a 10-month season. Head coach Susan Holt and the Irish can now look back on a year that will best be remembered for an unprecedented third consecutive NCAA Regional appearance.The Irish also had several impressive individual finishes throughout the 22nd season of women’s varsity golf at the University of Notre Dame. The team visited the Emerald Isle from Aug. 9-16 and golfed five historic courses as part of a preseason trip to the southwest portion of the Ireland. The team played their first round at the Waterville Golf Club and then took on the Tralee Golf Club. A midweek round at the Killarney Golf & Fishing Club was more reminiscent of courses the team encountered on a tournament-by-tournament basis during the season. Then they played the visually stunning, and often intimidating, Old Head Golf Links before closing out the trip with 18-holes The Irish began the 2009-10 campaign with a preseason trip to Ireland where they played some of the most prestigious courses the Emerald Isle had to offer, including scenic Old Head. of play at the famed Ballybunion Golf Club. “It was an awesome experience to play golf the way it was meant to be played,” said Irish head One of the Irish players who seemed to benefit coach Susan Holt. “We are so spoiled here in the most from the early start to the 2009-10 season was states with how our courses are kept up and main- sophomore Becca Huffer, who turned in a top-15 tained.” showing in her first seven events of the season.

Notre Dame’s other top performers of the 200910 season included All-BIG EAST selections Annie Brophy, a senior, and junior Katie Conway.With the honor, Brophy became just the second player in program history to earn four All-BIG EAST honors, joining Noriko Nakazaki in that elite club. Brophy’s top showing of the season came at the Alamo Invitational, where she fired a minus-two 70 (tying for the second-best round of her Irish career) in the event’s only round to tie for medalist honors. Having already earned medalist honors at the 2008 BIG EAST Championship, Brophy became just the fifth player in program history to win multiple titles for the Irish.

without the services of Brophy, who wrapped up her four years having played 126 competitive rounds for the Irish and posting the fourth best stroke average in program history (76.60). “Annie will be a real loss for our program on and off the course because she was a great leader by example in so many ways,” said Holt.“She was vocal and could back it up with her own play, which her teammates respected. We will need some others to step up and fill the leadership role on this team as we move on. Annie is a great person with a great heart who did a lot of community service projects and did a great job getting her teammates involved.” Though replacing Brophy in the lineup and in the locker room will be difficult, Holt and assistant coach Kyle Lynne Veltri are bringing in another highly touted duo of recruits who should help the Irish reach their goals for years to come.The class is led by Nicole Zhang of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, who became the first member of the Notre Dame women’s golf program to qualify for the U.S. Women’s Open when she earned a 2010 invite by virtue of finishing fourth at a qualifying event at the Pinnacle Peak Country Club. Zhang will arrive at Notre Dame in the fall as the 10th-ranked recruit for the class of 2010 according to Golfweek. She is joined by Kristina Nhim of Buena Park, Calif., who is the 43rd-ranked recruit for the class of 2010 according to Golfweek.

Becca Huffer led the Irish with a 74.90 stroke average on the season and now owns the best career mark in program history at 75.24.

With Huffer and Conway coming off impressive 2009-10 seasons and Katie Allare looking to build on the momentum that allowed her to contribute to the team during the postseason, the Irish are looking forward to a successful 2010-11 season. Notre Dame will have an even better chance to advance beyond regional play next season because it will play host to the 2011 NCAA Central Regional at their own Warren Golf Course. Add an impressive incoming freshman class of Zhang and Nhim combined with a return to form by Park, who earned the program’s first All-American honor in 2008, to the other factors and Notre Dame could be poised to make the final breakthrough into the NCAA Championship field in 2011.

“The team will need her to continue to mature and do even better her senior year and I think her best golf at Notre Dame is yet to come,” concluded Holt.

As a team, the Irish recorded a 306.60 stroke average – the fourth best mark in program history. Notre Dame’s best finish of the season came at the Alamo Invitational when the Irish shot a combined four-over par 292 to tie for second in the 12-team field. While Brophy earned co-medalist honors at the event, Huffer, Park and Conway all fired twoover par 74s to round out the scoring. Notre Dame also finished third at the Bettie Lou Evans Invite (tie) and at the 2010 BIG EAST Championship.

Other top individual performances included So-Hyun Park’s tie for eighth at the Bettie Lou Evans invite, where she fired a first round 75 and, after the second round was cancelled due to rain, The Irish, having firmly established themselves as followed with a one-over par 72 in the final round of play.

Coaching Staff

In four seasons together, head coach Susan Holt (center) and assistant coach Kyle Lynne Veltri (left) have led the Fighting Irish women’s golf program to three consecutive NCAA appearances. The team has posted the top-four scoring averages in program history in Holt’s four seasons at the helm. Holt and Veltri also have brought in four top-25 ranked recruits.

Head Coach

Susan Holt

Head Coach Fourth Year Ohio State University ’88

In four seasons as the Fighting Irish women’s golf head coach, Susan Holt has ushered the program into a period of unprecedented success that includes an active streak of three consecutive NCAA Regional appearances and the top-four season stroke averages in program history. In Holt’s tenure, the Irish have won six tournaments, including the 2008 BIG EAST Championship, while her players have garnered medalist honors on five occasions. Holt was introduced as head coach of the University of Notre Dame women’s golf program in August of 2006. She became the second fulltime head coach in the history of the Fighting Irish program and the fourth overall since women’s golf became a varsity sport prior to the 1988-89 season.

In her fourth season, Holt led the Irish to a third consecutive NCAA Central Regional appearance – the first time Notre Dame has played in three straight NCAA Regional fields – and led the Irish to the fourth-best season stroke average with a 306.60 mark. Notre Dame’s best finish of the season came at the Alamo Invitational when the Irish shot a combined four-over par 292 to tie for second in the 12-team field. While Annie Brophy earned co-medalist honors at the event, Becca Huffer, So-Hyun Park and Katie Conway all fired twoover par 74s to round out the scoring. Notre Dame also finished third at both the Bettie Lou Evans Invite (tie) and the 2010 BIG EAST Championship. Three of Holt’s players earned All-BIG EAST honors in 2010 including Brophy, Conway and Huffer. With her fourth such honor, Brophy became just the second player in program history to earn All-BIG EAST accolades four times, while she and Huffer had the added distinction of being two of the six unanimous selections to the 12-person team. In her four seasons with the Irish, Holt has seen six of her players combine to win 15 All-BIG EAST honors. Additionally, Huffer earned BIG EAST Rookie of the Year accolades in 2009. During the 2009-10 season, Holt presided over one of the program’s best individual performances as Huffer put together one of Notre Dame’s most statistically impressive seasons. Huffer recorded a 74.90 stroke average, which is the third-best mark in program history. She also saw all 30 of her rounds counted towards team scoring and she led the Irish at six of their 11 tournaments. At the end of a dominating 2009-10 season in which she finished in the top-20 at 10 of 11 events, Huffer narrowly missed individual qualification for the NCAA Championship field but, with her tie for 16th at the NCAA Central Regional, she turned in the best ever finish by a Notre Dame golfer in NCAA play. In 2008-09, Holt led the Irish back to the NCAA Central Regional for the second consecutive year, marking just the second time in program history that Notre Dame qualified for NCAA play in back-to-back seasons. She did so with the Irish playing a challenging slate of tournaments that included the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge in Palos Verdes, Calif. and the Bryan National Collegiate in Greensboro, N.C. The Irish were ranked inside the Golfstat top-25 for parts of

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME®

the season for the second consecutive year and they captured the Heather Farr Memorial Tournament, finishing with a program low score of 858 (-6), besting the previous record by 12 strokes. The Irish combined to post a 303.39 stroke average for the season, a mark bested only by a 300.47 mark recorded in 2007-08. The Irish finished in the top-five in four of the 11 tournaments on the season and registered 16 top-15 individual showings. Holt fielded a team that earned four All-BIG EAST accolades. The four all-league members tied a program record, which had also been achieved the previous two seasons under Holt. The Irish also combined to post three of the five lowest rounds in school history and four of the top-eight tournament totals in program history. Huffer claimed BIG EAST Freshman of the Year honors, while Lisa Maunu claimed medalist honors at the 2009 BIG EAST Tournament, Notre Dame’s second medalist in as many years at the event. Three seasons ago, in Holt’s second season with the Irish, Notre Dame won the 2008 BIG EAST title. Holt was named the conference’s coach of the year after putting together what turned out to be a record-breaking campaign in many ways. The Irish produced a school-record 300.47 stroke average and won a program-best five tournaments,

including the BIG EAST championship. Three straight wins to open the season signified another program milestone for the Irish. Three golfers combined to win four tournaments on the season and the year was capped with a trip to the NCAA Central Regional in Austin, Texas. After the record breaking 2007-08 campaign, Park became the program’s first All-America honoree as she copped honorable mention All-America accolades from the National Golf Coaches Association and Golfweek magazine. Park won two tournaments on the year and posted a single season-best 73.63 stroke average. The 2007-08 season commenced with a win at the Cougar Classic in Hanahan, S.C. Maunu earned medalist honors by firing a school-record three-round total of 210 (-6). Maunu’s first-round six-under par 66 also represented a program record. Notre Dame followed that with a victory at the Napa River Grill Cardinal Cup in Simpsonville, Ky. Park made it a second clean sweep for the Fighting Irish as she claimed the victory. The Irish made it three in a row with a triumph at the Wolverine Invitational in Ann Arbor, Mich. A fourth team victory was achieved in the spring at the Rio Verde Collegiate Invitational in Rio Verde, Ariz. For the third time on the year, Notre Dame swept the hardware as Park captured the individual title. Holt and the Irish then delivered on one of the team’s goals for the year by winning the BIG EAST title by nine shots over two-time defending

conference champion Louisville in Batavia, Ohio. Brophy became the first Notre Dame golfer to win the BIG EAST title outright. Brophy and three of her teammates went on to claim allconference accolades. In all, the Irish finished in the top-five in nine of the 11 tournaments on the season and registered 20 top-10 individual showings. Notre Dame also reached as high as 12th in the Golfstat rankings during the year. That was the highest ranking ever for the Irish, who had two freshmen and two sophomores in the five-person scoring lineup all season long. Notre Dame garnered the ninth seed in the NCAA Central Regional before finishing 16th. In her first campaign with the Fighting Irish, Holt’s team posted a then school-record scoring average of 305.46 during the 2006-07 season. Holt steered Notre Dame to a runner-up finish at the 2007 BIG EAST Championship. The Irish tied Louisville with a season-best 891 (+27) total during the 54-hole event but Notre Dame fell to the Cardinals by one stroke in the first hole of a sudden-death playoff. The Irish tied a program record by placing four student-athletes on the allBIG EAST Team with the fine performance at the 2007 BIG EAST Championship. Throughout the season, Notre Dame produced two runner-up finishes, including one at the Lady Irish Invitational. The other second-place finish occurred at Kansas’ Marilynn Smith Sunflower Invitational. The results were even more impressive given the Irish squad featured three freshmen in the five-person scoring lineup during the entire spring semester. Notre Dame also made history when senior co-captain Noriko Nakazaki became the first team member in program history to qualify for NCAA play as an individual entrant. Nakazaki carded a threeround score of 224 (+11) to place in a tie for 18th at the NCAA Central Regional in Ann Arbor, Mich. Holt’s presence at the head of the Fighting Irish program has also produced big dividends on the recruiting trail. Holt brought in the top recruiting class in program history for the 2007-08 season as Notre Dame’s Class of 2011 was comprised of Conway and Park, who were both ranked in the top-25 nationally. Another stellar class that featured Huffer- also a top-25 recruit- and Katie Allare joined the Irish in the fall of 2008. In the fall of 2010, the highly touted duo of Kristina Nhim and Nicole Zhang, who is also a top-25 recruit and a qualifier for the 2010 U.S. Women's Open, will join the Irish. In addition to their perfor-

mances on the course, Holt’s teams have excelled academically as well. Twenty-four times, her players have been named to the National Golf Coaches Association All-Scholar Golf Team (3.5 grade-point average and play in 66 percent of events). In 2009-10, six of her players earned BIG EAST Academic All-Star honors, bringing her four-year total to 19 BIG EAST Academic All-Star honors while leading the Irish program. Park led the way with a Dean’s List showing in the spring of 2010 and the team combined to post an impressive 3.373 GPA for the 2009-10 season. Holt came to Notre Dame from the University of South Florida, where she spent 13 successful seasons guiding the Bulls. In her final season, USF joined the BIG EAST Conference and she led the Bulls to a tie for third, along with the Irish, in their inaugural BIG EAST tournament. “First and foremost, I was attracted by the opportunity to come to what I believe is the best academic and athletic combination that’s out there,” says Holt on why she decided to come to Notre Dame following a successful run at South Florida. “The commitment to the golf program with the course and the new indoor facility makes a statement. As a coach you want to know that you have a chance to be successful and you can tell that’s how it is at Notre Dame and it’s impressive to see that.” A native of Dayton, Ohio, Holt made a return to the Midwest, where she began her college coaching career at Purdue University, with her hiring at Notre Dame. She was at the helm of the women’s golf program at Purdue for four seasons from 1990-93 before taking the position at South Florida. Holt directed the USF program to 16 team titles and 17 runner-up finishes, including five of 10 Conference USA Championships. She guided the team and/or individuals to 11 NCAA Regional appearances and trips to the NCAA Championship Finals in 2001 and 2002. Holt’s teams at South Florida won at least one tournament in 10 of her 13 seasons and she was recognized as the Conference USA Coach of the Year in 1996, 1999 and 2001. In the spring of 2005, Holt was named Conference USA Coach of the Decade for women’s golf (1995-2005). Under Holt’s watch, South Florida players were named to the Conference USA All-Conference Team 23 times. Current LPGA player and South Florida graduate Kelly Lagedrost was named Conference USA Player of the Year in 2001. Former South Florida golfer Christina Jones was named Conference USA Freshman of the Year in 2005. Prior to college coaching, Holt worked as a club professional in West Palm Beach, Fla., and in Ipswich, Mass. She is a 1988 graduate of Ohio State University, where she played on the women’s golf team that won Big Ten Championships in 1985 and 1988 and played in the NCAA Championship those same years. Holt graduated from Fairmont High School in Kettering, Ohio. She has been a member of the PGA of America since 1992. Susan married Tim Holt of Kokomo, Ind., in 1993 and they are the parents of two children, Justin and Kristin. Tim, who is also a PGA member, is the current head coach at nearby Holy Cross College.

Assistant Coach

Kyle Veltri

Assistant Coach Fifth Year Saint Mary’s College (Ind.) ‘01

Kyle Veltri completed her fifth season as the assistant women’s golf coach at the University of Notre Dame with the conclusion of the 2009-10 campaign. Since teaming up with current head coach Susan Holt prior to the 2006-07 season, Veltri has helped the Fighting Irish post the top-four scoring averages in program history while also leading the Irish to three consecutive NCAA Central Regional appearances. In fact, if you take into account her first year as an Irish assistant coach, the 2005-06 season, Veltri has been a part of the top-five scoring averages in program history. Veltri, a 2001 graduate from Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Ind., and a recipient of a Master’s of Science and Education degree from Indiana University in May of 2009, returned to the Notre Dame community when she was hired in August of 2005. In her fifth season,Veltri helped the Irish to a third consecutive NCAA Central Regional appearance – the first time Notre Dame has played in three straight NCAA Regional fields – and led the Irish to the fourth-best season stroke average with a 306.60 mark. Notre Dame’s best finish of the season came at the Alamo Invitational when the Irish shot a combined four-over par 292 to tie for second in the 12-team field. At the Alamo Invitational, Annie Brophy earned co-medalist honors to become just the sixth golfer in program history to win multiple individual titles, having already captured medalist honors at the 2008 BIG EAST Championship. Notre Dame also finished third at both the Bettie Lou Evans Invite (tie) and the 2010 BIG EAST Championship. Three of Veltri’s players earned All-BIG EAST honors in 2010 including Brophy, Katie Conway and Becca Huffer. With her fourth such honor, Brophy became just the second player in program history to earn All-BIG EAST accolades four times, while she and Huffer had the added distinction of being two of the six unanimous selections to the 12-player team. In her five seasons with the Irish, Veltri has seen six of her players combine to win 16 All-BIG EAST honors. Known as an excellent recruiter, Veltri has helped the Irish welcome the top recruits in program history during her five years at Notre Dame. Holt and Veltri brought in Notre Dame’s top rated recruiting class at the start of the 2007-08 season as the Class of 2011 was comprised of Conway and So-Hyun Park, who were both ranked in the top-25 nationally. Another

stellar class that featured Hufferalso a top-25 recruit- and Katie Allare joined the Irish in the fall of 2008. Next, in the fall of 2010, the highly touted duo of Nicole Zhang and Kristina Nhim will join the Irish. Zhang is another top-25 recruit who recently qualified for the 2010 U.S. Women's Open, becoming the first member of the Fighting Irish women’s golf family to play in the premier event. Nhim is a top-50 recruit who will be looking to help the Irish reach new heights as well. One of Veltri’s prized recruits, Huffer, put together one of the program’s best individual performances in 2009-10. She recorded a 74.90 stroke average, which is the third-best mark in program history, and saw all 30 of her rounds counted towards team scoring. Huffer also led the Irish at six of their 11 tournaments. At the end of her dominating 2009-10 season, in which she finished in the top-20 at 10 of 11 events, Huffer narrowly missed individual qualification for the NCAA Championship field. But with her tie for 16th at the 2010 NCAA Central Regional, she turned in the best ever finish by a Notre Dame golfer in NCAA play. Two years ago, during the 2008-09 season, the Irish combined to post three of the five lowest rounds in school history and four of the top-eight tournament totals in program history. Notre Dame also captured the Heather Farr Memorial Tournament, finishing with a program low score of 858 (-6), besting the previous mark by 12 strokes. The Irish combined to post a 303.39 stroke average for the season, the second best mark in program history. The Irish finished in the top-five in four of their 11 tournaments on the season and registered 16 top15 individual showings.Veltri helped field a team that earned four All-BIG EAST accolades, tying a program record for conference all-star selections. The Irish opened the 2007-08 season with a win at the Cougar Classic in Hanahan, S.C. Lisa Maunu earned medalist honors by firing a school-record three-round total of 210 (-6).

Notre Dame finished in the top-five in nine of the 11 tournaments on the 2007-08 season and registered 20 top-10 individual showings. The Fighting Irish were also ranked 12th in the Golfstat rankings during the fall. That was the highest ranking ever for the Irish, who had two freshmen and two sophomores in the five-person scoring lineup all season long. Notre Dame garnered the ninth seed in the NCAA Central Regional before finishing 16th.

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME®

After the record breaking 2007-08 campaign, Park became the program’s first All-America honoree as she copped honorable mention All-America accolades from the National Golf Coaches Association and Golfweek magazine. Park won two tournaments on the year and posted a single season-best 73.63 stroke average. Park also won two tournaments. In her second season at Notre Dame,Veltri was an instrumental part with the transition after the hiring of new head coach Susan Holt in August of 2007. Veltri coached the Irish in their first event of the fall season, while Holt was still with her former team at the University of South Florida. On the season, Veltri helped a young Irish squad that featured three freshmen in the five-person scoring lineup during the spring semester. The team posted impressive numbers, including a then-program-record 305.46 stroke average for the entire 2006-07 campaign. Notre Dame tied a program record by placing four student-athletes on the all-BIG EAST Team after a fine performance at the 2007 BIG EAST Championship. The Irish were tied with Louisville following the 54-hole event with a season-best 891 (+27) total, but Notre Dame fell by one stroke in the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to the Cardinals. Notre Dame produced two runner-up finishes, including one at the Lady Irish Invitational. The other second-place finish occurred at Kansas’ Marilynn Smith Sunflower Invitational. Notre Dame also made history as senior co-captain Noriko Nakazaki became the first team member in program history to qualify for NCAA play as an individual entrant. In her first season as a Notre Dame assistant,Veltri helped guide the Fighting Irish to a (then) school record 306.66 scoring average. The Irish had seven top-five finishes, including a win at the Notre Dame Invitational. Before her arrival at Notre Dame, Veltri compiled seven years of experience in the golf industry, tracing all the way back to her work at the Notre Dame/ Saint Mary’s College Nike Golf Camp in 1999 and 2000. The Clarksburg, W. Va., native also worked at Notre Dame’s Warren Golf Course as a golf shop assistant during her time at Saint Mary’s. Following her graduation from Saint Mary’s College,Veltri worked for nearly one year at Captain’s Choice Golf Services Inc. in Orlando, Fla., where she served as management/tournament coordinator while also working in sales. During the summers of 2003 and 2004, Veltri served as an instructor/counselor at the Stonewall Resort Nike Golf Camp in Roanoke, W.Va. Prior to her arrival at Notre Dame, she worked at the Palmer Course at the Stonewall Resort as the assistant golf professional for three years.

In great appreciation the 2009-10 Fighting Irish women’s golf team would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Warren Golf Course Staff, as well as the staffs at Juday Creek, the South Bend Country Club, and Morros Park Country Club for your support of Irish Athletics. You and your staff were very gracious in allowing our team to utilize your facilities over the past year and we are truly grateful. We had an excellent golfing experience and your members/guests were very inviting. We thank you for your support!

T

he date of May 1, 2000, marked the beginning of a new era in the history of Notre Dame golf as the University unveiled the championship-caliber William K. and Natalie O. Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame. Since its opening date, the course has been hailed as one of the best courses in America by Golf Digest and has been featured in Links Magazine and Golf Digest as a must-play venue. Through the generous donation of Notre Dame alumnus and Tulsa, Okla., resident Bill Warren (’56), the University features an impressive 18-hole golf course, located a stone’s throw away from the northeast corner of campus. Constructed in a heavily wooded area, the facility is bordered by Douglas Road to the south, Juniper Road to the west, Ironwood Drive to the east and the Indiana Toll Road to the north. Since its inception, the Warren has played host to many marquee events. Most recently, the Warren played host the United States Golf Association’s U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship, on June 21-26, 2010. The Warren also was the host site for the 2010 NCAAA Men’s Central Regional. Then, on May 5-7, 2011, the Warren will play host to the 2011 NCAA Women’s Central Regional . The course was designed by the Austin, Texas-based architectural team of Coore and Crenshaw, headed by Bill Coore and PGA Tour veteran Ben Crenshaw. Coore began his design and construction career in 1972 with noted course architect Pete Dye and formed his own company in 1982 before joining forces with Crenshaw four years later. Founded in 1986, Coore and Crenshaw has established a reputation for creating courses based on traditional, strategic golf, including: the Plantation Course at the Kapalua Resort in Maui, Hawaii; Cuscowilla Golf Club in Greensboro, Ga.; Sand Hills Golf Club in Mullen, Neb.; Barton Creek Club in Austin; the New Town Golf Club in Indonesia; Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Ariz.; and the East Hampton Golf Club on Long Island. Most recently, they designed the highly acclaimed Bandon Dunes in Oregon. Coore and Crenshaw also has undertaken several renovation projects, including the Southern Hills Country Club (in Tulsa) and the Prairie Dunes Golf Club (located in Kansas). The firm oversaw nine-hole additions to the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa and the Onion Creek Country Club in Austin. The existing Notre Dame Memorial Golf Course, located on the southwest side of campus, served as an 18-hole facility for the Notre Dame community

until 1993, when the back nine was lost due to the addition of four campus dormitories and several athletic fields. The 70-year-old University course remains a convenient nine-hole facility available to the campus community. “After losing the back nine of the existing course, Mr. Warren came forward with an interest in developing a new 18-hole, championship course,” said Notre Dame special assistant to the president Rev. E. William Beauchamp, C.S.C. ”It then became apparent that this was a project worth pursuing.” Since Mr. Warren was familiar with the team of Coore and Crenshaw through its work in Tulsa, it was a very natural fit. “We are very grateful for Mr. Warren’s generosity,” said Beauchamp. “Such a championship-level course allows our golf teams to be more competitive on a national level. The course is intended to benefit the entire Notre Dame community while still retaining the existing course as a nine-hole facility for instructional purposes.” Course construction began on March 1, 1997, with the first actual phases of dirt movement beginning two months later. Many of the day-to-day tasks were coordinated by the University’s department of facility engineering, under the ultimate supervision of associate vice president for business operations Jim Lyphout. The project also was coordinated by former associate athletic director Bubba Cunningham, who had responsibilities for athletic facility and financial affairs at the time. Final construction was overseen by Doug Marsh, director of the Notre Dame facilities engineering office. Assisting in this monumental task was Butch Layman, a construction administrator in the facilities engineering office. South Bend-based Rieth Reilly Construction was contracted to handle the movement of approximately 100,000 yards of dirt. Another local company, Ziolkowski Construction, handled construction of the course’s buildings and other structures. Final details of the course were directed by Tom Beck, construction superintendent for Coore and Crenshaw, and his associate Jeff Bradley. Kim Hocker, the now former golf course superintendent of the Warren Golf Course and the existing University golf course, and his dedicated staff added their expertise to the successful finish of the project. Final construction – completed in the fall of 1999 – included grading and seeding of the driving range, construction of tee areas around the clubhouse,

Warren Golf Course Earns Top-15 Ranking From Golf Digest The University of Notre Dame's Warren Golf Course has been chosen as one of the top 15 college courses in the nation, according to a feature article in the September 2005 issue of Golf Digest. The magazine used a variety of criteria in rating the various layouts, including shot values, resistance to scoring, design variety, memorability, aesthetics, conditioning, ambience and bonus walking points. The Warren Golf Course was ranked 15th in the country and is one of the newest courses on the 2005 Golf Digest list. The ranking from Golf Digest is only one of honors for the Warren Golf Course in its brief history. Here's a partial list of the accolades the Notre Dame layout has received since opening in 2000: • Annually named as one of the nation’s ‘Top-100 Places You Can Play’ by Golf Digest • Second-best public golf course in Indiana - Golfweek, 2007 • Third-best public golf course in Indiana - Golfweek, 2006 • Third-best public golf course in Indiana - Golf Digest, 2006 • 12th-best collegiate facility in the country - Golfweek, 2005 • Golf Magazine, March 2001: "Top 10 You Can Play" -- honorable mention selection (one of only 35 courses in the country chosen) • Golf and Travel Magazine, August 2001: 40 Best Daily Fee Courses: No. 33 in United States (only course in the state of Indiana ranked) • Best New Courses of 2000: No. 5 in Affordable Public Division - Golf Digest • Chicagoland Golf Magazine: Five-star rating (highest) • Certified International Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary

Warren Golf Course Recognized For Environmental Excellence The William K. and Natalie O. Warren Golf Course has achieved designation as a “Certified Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary” by the Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary System (ACSS), the educational division of Audobon International. The Warren Course was the sixth course in Indiana and the 335th in the world to achieve this honor. “The Warren Golf Course has shown strong commitment to its environmental program. They are to be commended for their efforts to provide sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property,” said Joellen Zeh, staff ecologist for the ACSS. “To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas,” said Zeh. “We are extremely proud to be certified Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary,” said Kim Hocker, the now former golf course superintendent at the Warren Golf Course. ”From the beginning, it was the goal of the University of Notre Dame to create an environmentally-sound golf course. In addition, the overwhelming positive response from golfers and the local community has made our efforts worthwhile.” completion of the many strategically-placed bunkers, overseeding of the fairways and roughs, and the defining of the course during the “grow-in” period. A number of trees and ornamental grasses were planted to add finishing touches. Brian Godfrey was named the first PGA director of golf and general manager for the Notre Dame Golf Courses in October of 1998. In 2003, John Foster assumed the post of General Manager and Head Golf Professional at the Warren. His duties at the Warren Golf Course include overseeing the operation of both courses, in addition to pro shops, clubhouse and driving range management. He coordinates course use to balance and meet the requirements of the varsity golf teams, course members, faculty, staff, students and the public. Foster also maintains the golf facility budgets as well as oversees staff training. The design of the Warren Golf Course is reminiscent of the classic, walkable Irish and American courses built in the late 1800s and early 1900s, with short distances between the greens and tees. Winding its way through 250 wooded acres, the course incorporates traditional elements of the great golf courses of the early 1900s and – unlike many modern layouts – is built on subtleties rather than special effects. “Players have been impressed with the design,” said Godfrey after the course opened in 2000. “From the dramatic bunkering to the strategic designs of the greens, it is challenging and enjoyable for golfers of all abilities.” Distinguishing features include: rectangular

tee boxes that provide a classic start to each hole; undulating greens of varying shapes constructed in a push-up style that slopes from back to front; false fronts to greens that allow a golfer to run the ball or fly it to the flag; strategically-placed bunkers that visually enhance each hole while challenging players to proceed with caution The course runs 7,020 yards from the back tees, 6,003 from the middle and 5,302 from the forward tees. It includes 88 bunkers scattered among the 18 holes, and water comes into play on six holes. The course has bent grass fairways and fescue grass rough, playing surfaces found at some of today’s top facilities. Though the course originally did not originally play with a par, it currently plays at par 71. ”We maintain the course in a dry and firm manner that will be true to the vision of the architects,” said Godfrey. “Many older courses required the player to have both the ability to run the ball along the ground as well as being able to fly it to the flag. A firmer surface allows for both options. This type of maintenance plan also requires fewer chemical applications and less water, which will allow for an environmentally-friendly course.” The designers received full permits to realign the existing Juday Creek that runs through the course and environmental safeguards were a priority in design and construction. A new creek channel was opened, resulting in a complete created habitat. The creek winds through the finishing holes, which are noted for heavy woods and change of elevations – pro-

viding a beautiful, challenging completion to the inward nine. Constant monitoring of the creek ensures a healthy and natural environment. Some 4,400 native hardwood trees and shrubs were planted to increase the stream's canopy cover. Approximately 360 large boulders, along with gravel and logs, were added to the slopes and bed to enhance fish habitat while a permanent sediment trap was installed. A combination of pest management, drainage and filtration techniques minimizes the use and impact of fertilizers and pesticides while 2,200 feet of new shaded stream course were created to relocate the stream from the golf course proper. Environmental engineers J.F. New & Associates directed these aspects of the project, and Ronald A. Hellenthal, professor of biological sciences at Notre Dame and Gillen Director of its Environmental Research Center, reviewed the plans and continues to monitor the creek. Two lakes add to the challenge of the course, with one stationed between the third and fourth holes while another provides a hazard from the tee of the 17th hole. Water comes into play with the existing Juday Creek winding through holes 16 and 18 while additional creeks were added on holes 10 and 18. The 7,000-foot clubhouse – designed by Moake-Park Group Inc. of Fort Wayne, Ind., in a French Country style – was completed in June of ’99. The building matches the period of the course architecture (early 1900s), with a classic “clinker” style brick exterior. The design is completed by copper cupolas, dormers and trim, a slate roof and an enclosed porch. Brick fireplaces are located on both sides of the building, which welcomes the University community to venture over for lunch, meetings or shopping. The clubhouse is open to the public and houses some of the finest in men’s and women’s golf apparel, with both the Warren Golf Course logo as well as traditional Notre Dame merchandise and souvenirs. The Warren Grille, which is operated by Notre Dame Food Services, serves traditional golf course fare as well as specialty items and sandwiches.

Warren Golf Course

A view from the 372-yard 1st hole. A slight dogleg to the left, this hole gives you an idea of what is to come with the rough look of the bunkers on the left to the well protected, small green.

The fairway bunkers on the 216-yard 11th hole provide an architectural deception, in that – from the tee – the front bunkers appear to be located on the sides of the green when they, in fact, are 20 yards short of it (bunkers also are located on the sides of the green).

The 197-yard 14th is one of Ben Crenshaw’s favorite holes on the Warren Golf Course. Noted for its old-Scottish style, the hole includes an elevated green and two bunkers to the right of the green that cannot be seen from the tee (unlike those to the left of the green). The hole is even more scenic when framed by full foliage in the surrounding trees.

The view from behind the 414-yard eighth hole looks to a green that is rectangular in shape and slopes dramatically from the rear, with an open front that allows either a bump-and-run shot or one that is flown to the green.

The 15th green is located just a stone’s throw from the clubhouse, yet the building is obscured by a distinctive variety of trees that rim the putting green.

This is a look from the fairway of the 436-yard sixth hole. The green is guarded by two trees and has a narrow entrance that is protected by bunkers both left and right. The Starter’s Cottage is visible in the right side of the picture. Above is a look from the picturesque tee at the 16th hole. Overlooking Juday Creek from the elevated tee, the hole ascends up and to the left to a tiny, undulating green that is very well protected by classic Coore- and Crenshaw-designed bunkers.

U N I V E R S I T Y OF NO T R E D A ME ®

The elevated tee from the longest hole on the course, the 480-yard 17th hole, overlooks a pond to the left and the large bunkers in the bank of the hill, leading to a sharp dogleg-left approach to the green.

The finishing hole’s tee shot (above) must carry the new stretch of Juday Creek and bend left to the green. The entire left side of the 18th fairway is bordered by the bed of the former Juday Creek, which has been filled to form a new stream.

The 495-yard 10th hole is another long hole that a big hitter may try to reach in two. Watch out for the creek that runs diagonally across the entire width of the fairway in front of the green.

The eastside back porch of the clubhouse (above) overlooks the finishing holes and welcomes golfers from the nearby 18th green. The westside entrance to the clubhouse sits beyond the ninth green, which is noted for its back-to-front slope and is surrounded by deceptive and treacherous bunkering.

The ninth hole, as seen from one of the Warren Golf Course's distinctive rectangular tee boxes, is beautifully framed by trees, and the clubhouse is located behind the green.

A picturesque view from the tee box greets golfers at the dogleg-left seventh hole (398 yards), with a solitary tree adding some danger down the left side of the fairway.

Varsity Golf Facility The Robert and Marilyn Rolfs Family All-Season Varsity Golf Facility (opened Sept. 30, 2006) A 5,000-square foot indoor short game area, that includes a putting green, chip and pitch area along with a practice bunker allows the studentathletes the ability to practice their short game year-round on campus.

The Robert and Marilyn Rolfs Family All-Season Varsity Golf Facility, which is located at the Warren Golf Course on the northeast corner of the University of Notre Dame campus, opened on Sept. 30, 2006 with a private dedication ceremony. The $2.1 million, 10,333-square foot facility is used by both the Irish men’s and women’s golf programs.

“We are seeing an immediate impact with recruiting and that will only make our program stronger by bringing in top-level talent. The facility will also allow us to get quality practice time all year round. The putting and chipping areas are extremely nice and very authentic.” – Notre Dame head coach Susan Holt

One of the nicest features of the facility are the six hitting stations that are located within the building that lead out to the Warren Golf Course driving range, allowing players to work on their swings in all weather conditions. Incorporated within the stations is state-of-the-art video equipment to give players and coaches instant feedback on players’ swing techniques.

Each studentathlete has his or her own locker area in their respective locker room.

Four offices are located on the east end of the building to accommodate the coaching staffs. A fully furnished lounge is available to members of both teams for studying or relaxing. Another asset for the teams is a club repair room, which is located in the southern wing of the facility.

NCAA COMPLIANCE REGULATIONS

Thank you for your tremendous support of our entire athletics program. Our 800+ student-athletes, our coaches and administrative staff are very appreciative of your spirit and affinity for Notre Dame, in particular intercollegiate athletics. With that, your adherence to all applicable NCAA rules and regulations is essential as we strive to maintain and enhance our national athletic prominence while protecting the University’s tradition of integrity and values. Our Compliance Office staff stands prepared to assist you with your

questions and concerns regarding NCAA regulations. Please contact us immediately should you have concern regarding any situation. Your attention to these matters will ensure that the eligibility of both prospective student-athletes (“recruits”) and enrolled student-athletes is protected and maintained. Again, many thanks for your cooperation in this matter and your ongoing support. Go Fighting Irish! The Compliance Staff

WHO IS A REPRESENTATIVE OF NOTRE DAME’S ATHLETICS INTERESTS?

DOs AND DON’Ts FOR REPRESENTATIVES IN REGARDS TO A CURRENT STUDENT-ATHLETE:

(The following lists of examples are not all-inclusive. As always, ask before you act!) You are, if: • you are an enrolled student or graduate of the University.

(The following lists of examples are not all-inclusive. As always, ask before you act!)

• you have ever participated in or are a member of any organization promoting Notre Dame’s athletics program. (The former Quarterback Club, The 3-Pt. Club, The Fast-Break Club, etc.) • you have ever made financial contributions to the University of Notre Dame athletics department.

DO You may: • contact a current student-athlete regarding employment opportunities; however, no contact may be made without approval from the Compliance Office. • provide a student-athlete, not their family and friends, an occasional (once a semester) meal at your home.

DON’T

• you have ever helped to arrange employment of or provided any benefits to prospective or enrolled student-athletes. • you have ever been a season ticket holder in any sport. • you have ever promoted the athletics programs at the University of Notre Dame. According to NCAA rules, once an individual has been identified as an institutional “representative of athletics interests” the individual retains that title for life. The University of Notre Dame is ultimately responsible for the behavior of all its athletics representatives in relation to NCAA rules and regulations. Violations of NCAA regulations by an athletics representative could result in the loss of eligibility for involved student-athletes (e.g. no participation in competitions) and/ or severe sanctions against the University (e.g. loss of scholarships, television and post-season bans).

CURRENT STUDENT-ATHLETE A student-athlete is any Notre Dame student who is a member of a varsity athletics team. NCAA regulations apply to all student-athletes, not just those studentathletes who were recruited or who receive an athletics scholarship. *Note: NCAA regulations concerning enrolled student-athletes remain in effect throughout the entire year (including summer break). If a student-athlete has completed his/her final season of eligibility, all NCAA regulations must be adhered to until he/she graduates or leaves school.

You may not: • provide a currently enrolled student-athlete, their parents or friends any benefit or special arrangement without prior approval from the Compliance Office. • pay for or arrange for payment of room, board or any type of transportation for a student-athlete or their family and friends. • entertain student-athletes or their family and friends. (Exception: NCAA rules do permit institutional staff members and athletics representatives to provide student-athletes (not including their family and friends) with an occasional meal (defined as once a semester) provided the meal is at the staff member’s or athletic representative’s home and not at a restaurant.) • use the name, picture or appearance of an enrolled student-athlete to advertise, recommend or promote sales or use of a commercial product or service of any kind. Any use of a student-athlete’s name, picture or appearance must receive authorization from the Compliance Office. • provide any payment of expense or loan of an automobile for a student-athlete to return home or to any other location. • provide awards or gifts to a student-athlete for any reason. All awards provided to student-athletes must first be approved by the Compliance Office and meet all NCAA regulations. • provide an honorarium to a student-athlete for a speaking engagement. All speaking engagements must be approved in advance by the Compliance Office. • allow a student-athlete, his/her relatives or friends to use your telephone to make free calls.

215

8/18/09 2:45:29 PM

COMPLIANCE CONTINUED • continue established family relationships with friends and neighbors. Contacts with sons and daughters of these families are permitted so long as they are not made for recruiting purposes or encouraged by Notre Dame coaches.

• provide free or reduced cost lodging in your home to a studentathlete or a student-athlete’s family and friends.

PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE A prospective student-athlete is any student who has started classes for the ninth grade. Any student younger than ninth grade who receives any benefits from an institution or athletics representative would also become a prospective student-athlete. In addition, student-athletes enrolled in preparatory school or two-year colleges are considered prospective student-athletes. * Note: An individual is considered a prospect (whether or not they have signed a National Letter-of-Intent) until the first day of initial collegiate enrollment or the first day they report for practice, whichever is earliest. Therefore, all NCAA regulations concerning contact with a prospective student-athlete are applicable until that time.

THE DOs AND DON’Ts FOR REPRESENTATIVES IN REGARDS TO A PROSPECTIVE STUDENTATHLETE: (The following lists of examples are not all-inclusive. As always, ask before you act!)

DO • forward information about prospective student-athletes to the appropriate coaching staff. • have telephone contact with a prospect regarding permissible preenrollment activities such as summer employment, provided the prospect has graduated from high school and signed a National Letter of Intent. • have a telephone conversation with a prospect only if the prospect initiates the call. Such a call may not be prearranged by an institutional staff member and you are not permitted to have a recruiting conversation, but may exhibit normal civility. You must refer any questions about our athletics programs to an athletics department staff member/coach. • view a prospect’s athletic contest at your own initiative provided you do not contact the prospect or his/her parents. In addition, you may not contact a prospect’s coach, principal, or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the prospect. Jill Bodensteiner, Associate Director of Athletics (574) 631-9647 or jbodenst@nd.edu

DON’T You may not: • write, e-mail or telephone a prospective student-athlete or his/her parents in an effort to recruit them to Notre Dame. • become involved in making arrangements to provide money, financial aid or a benefit of any kind to a prospect or the prospect’s family and friends. • make contact with a prospective student-athlete and his/her parents when the prospect is on-campus for an official or unofficial recruiting visit. • contact a prospect to congratulate him/her on signing a National Letter of Intent to attend the University. • transport, pay or arrange for payment of transportation costs for a prospect and his/her relatives or friends to visit campus (or elsewhere). • pay or arrange for payment of summer camp registration fees for a prospect. • provide ANYTHING to a prospect, the prospect’s family or friends without prior approval from the Compliance Office. The support of our alumni and friends is welcomed and appreciated. We ask, however, that you also help to keep Notre Dame’s tradition of athletics integrity intact by following the NCAA regulations. Your assistance will help ensure that the eligibility of both prospective and currently enrolled student-athletes is protected and preserved. Your efforts to know and follow the NCAA legislation are greatly appreciated because violations could affect the eligibility of involved prospects or student-athletes and/or result in NCAA penalties being imposed on the University. To that end, it should be our goal, as the best alumni and fans in the country, to preserve and protect each and every student-athlete’s eligibility. All NCAA legislation cannot be covered in a limited space such as this program. Therefore, any additional questions should be forwarded to the Compliance Office in the Department of Athletics. Please remember to ask before you act!

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME History •

The University of Notre Dame du Lac was founded in 1842 by Father Edward Sorin. Adjacent to South Bend, Ind., and nestled next to Saint Mary’s and Saint Joseph’s Lakes, the University was started with $310 in cash and three log buildings in disrepair. Notre Dame would establish many firsts for Catholic institutions of higher learning, including the first Catholic law school, the first Catholic engineering school and the first student residence with private rooms, Sorin Hall.

Students •

Graduate and undergraduate students at the University come from all 50 states and more than 100 countries worldwide.

Notre Dame’s graduation rate of 95 percent is exceeded by only Harvard and Princeton.

Notre Dame’s 98 percent retention rate between the freshman and sophomore years is among the highest in the country, thanks in large part to the University’s unique First Year of Studies Program.

Academics •

The University is organized into four colleges - Arts and Letters, Science, Engineering and the Mendoza College of Business - the School of Architecture, the Law School, the Graduate School, six major research institutes, more than 40 centers and special programs and the University library system.

Notre Dame is among a select group of schools that ranks in the top 25 on the U.S. News & World Report survey of the nation’s top colleges and in the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Directors’ Cup for overall success in athletics.

Community service is a hallmark of Notre Dame. About 80 percent of Notre Dame students engage in some form of voluntary community service during their years at the University, and at least 10 percent devote a year or more after graduation to service in the United States and around the world.

The University’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) annually sends 180 recent graduates to teach in some 100 understaffed Catholic schools in the southern, southeastern and southwestern United States and in South Bend. A national model, ACE has received the Higher Education Award from the Corporation for National Service for leadership in using national service resources through AmeriCorps.

Notre Dame has one of the highest undergraduate residential concentrations of any national university, with 80 percent of its students living in 27 residence halls.

Alumni

Notre Dame is rated among the nation’s top 25 institutions of higher learning in surveys conducted by U.S. News and World Report, Princeton Review, Time, Kiplinger’s, and Kaplan/Newsweek.
