settings to build global perspective, cultural competency and cultural fluency. On campus, Notre Dame co-curricular offerings are led by adults with area expertise who provide guidance and structure while allowing students to learn by doing and experiencing rather than simply watching.

SPEECH & DEBATE

Students are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone and try something new. They are empowered to create and build and, if they fail, try again. This unique approach cultivates resilience, builds hands-on skills and helps students develop a growth mindset,

"Speech and debate is one of my favorite programs at Notre Dame. We are able to grow our voices as young women in the community and advocate for important issues with confidence. Through speech and debate we are also able to meet new people and utilize our voices in co-ed environments."

Student Leadership

"With so many positions available, a large group of Notre Dame girls are shaped to become examples of women’s leadership. This year, being in Freshman Link, I have helped plan and run events for freshmen. I have gained the ability to get the attention of a room of people, and developed organizational, planning and speaking skills. ND leadership opportunities empower us to show that everyone, especially women, have a voice and can make a change."

"One of my favorite classes was Introduction to Photography. We learned about different photography compositions, studied some photographers, and learned how to use film cameras and how to develop the film in the school’s dark room. It was a great creative atmosphere with an additional bonus of being able to walk downtown to shoot our photos."

"Going to an all-girls school means that you will see women everywhere: women in speech and debate, women building robots, women taking the lead in plays and a woman as president of the student body. This inspires other students to branch out and dedicate themselves to activities that they might not have considered because they are not 'traditionally' for girls."
