University of Notre Dame residence halls

There are currently 30 undergraduate residence halls at the University of Notre Dame. Several of the halls are historic buildings which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1] Each residence hall is single-sex, with 16 all-male residence halls and 14 all-female residence halls.[2] Notre Dame residence halls feature a mixed residential college and house system, where residence halls are the center of the student life and some academic teaching; most students stay at the same hall for most of their undergraduate studies.[3][4] Each hall has its own traditions, events, mascot, sports teams, shield, motto, and dorm pride.[5][6][7] The university also hosts Old College, an undergraduate residence for students preparing for the priesthood.

Notre Dame has an undergraduate hall system which blends the residential college system and the house system. All first-year students are placed in one of the 31 halls upon enrollment, and students rarely switch halls. Each hall has its own spirit, tradition, mascot, sport teams, events, dances and reputation. Approximately 80% of undergraduate students live on campus, and often a student lives in the same dorm for the entirety of their undergraduate career.[8] A huge segment of student life happens through residence halls and students develop a particular attachment to their undergraduate hall. Each residence hall is directed by one Rector with the assistance of two Assistant Rectors and a variable number of Resident Assistants (from 4 to 9). Every residence hall has a chapel where Mass is held multiple time per week, fields a variety of intramural sports teams, elects one senator to represent the dorm in Student Government, and elects a president and vice president(s) which work through the Hall Presidents Council (HPC) student organization. Interhall football between Notre Dame male dorms is the only interhall tackle football which has remained at any US university.[9] Notre Dame residence halls are the center of the campus student life, and each one hosts signature events, like the Keenan Revue,[10] the Zahm Hall Bun run,[11] Fisher Regatta,[12] the Siegfried Day of Man, The Dillon Hall Pep Rally [13][14] and many others. Each dorm has its own architectural features, some of which designes by famous architects such as Willoughby J. Edbrooke, Maginnis & Walsh and Thomas Ellerbe, and each hall has a chapel dedicated to the Hall's patron saint.[15]

With the exception of Carroll Hall, the residence halls are split among five main segments of the campus: Main (God) Quad, South Quad, North Quad, Mod Quad and West Quad. (Carroll has its own lawn, by Saint Mary's Lake, informally called "Far Quad.") All first-year students are not only guaranteed on-campus housing, but are required to reside on campus for at least six semesters, starting with the Class of 2022.[7] Many of the halls were inserted in 1973 on the National Register of Historic Places.[16][17]

History

Groundbreaking took place on March 27 and construction started May 6, 1939 as a male dormitory, and the money was donated by brother in law benefactors William Breen (class of 1877) and Frank Phillips (class of 1880). It was built in 165 days, and it was ready to host students on September 8. It was built in collegiate Gothic style by Maginnis and Walsh. Breen was also director of the Board of Trustees and President of the alumni association.[53] Originally, it hosted the athletics department on its first floor, including the football coach Frank Leahy's office, and the football ticket office. It hosted naval officers during World War II when the university was used by the Navy for training purposes.[54] It was converted in a female dorm in 1973.[55]

The current rector is Sister Mary Catherine McNamara, who holds Bachelor of Science from St. John College of Cleveland and a Master of Science in Education from the University of Akron.

Traditions

The nickname was once the Banshees, but this was changed to Babes after the 1998 movie Babe: Pig in the City.

A traditional event of BP is the Bathrobe Breakfast, when the ladies of BP have their lunch at the dining hall in their pajamas. Another signature event is the BP Meal Auction, which raises money for the American Diabetes Association.[56]

Carroll Hall is one of the 30 residence halls at the University of Notre Dame. It located on the shores of St. Mary's Lake. Built in 1906 and a residence hall since 1966, Carroll is the smallest of the residence halls, housing around 100 undergraduates. Its mascot is the Vermin, and its colors are crimson and gold. The coat of arms is based on the Carroll family, adapted to the dorm colors. The hall is named after Charles Carroll, Founding Father and the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence.[58]

History

Charles Carroll of Carrollton - Michael Laty
Charles Carroll of Carrollton, namesake of Carroll Hall

Carroll Hall was constructed in 1906 by Brother Charles Borromeo Harding and christened "Dujarie Institute" after Jacques-François Dujarié.[59] Dujarié had founded in 1820 the Brothers of St. Joseph, who eventually in August 31, 1835 came under the control of Basil Moreau, CSC, and they developed into the Brothers of the Congregation of Holy Cross.[60] From then, it was used as a seminary for the Brothers of Holy Cross, the Dujare institute or scholasticate, where the novitiates studies and lived before professing their final vows. In 1920, Blessed Brother André Bessette lodged in the building, in room 306, a small plain chamber with white walls and a single window, which today has been incorporated in the suite occupied by the assistant rector.[61] In 1966, the Brothers sold the property to the University of Notre Dame, and in the fall of 1966 around a 100 students moved in.[62] Rev. Thomas McDonagh CSC was its first rector.[63]

In 1966, the building's name was changed to Carroll Hall, in honor of Charles Carroll.[64][65] He is sometimes referred to as one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America, although he was not involved in framing the United States Constitution. He served as a delegate to the Continental Congress and Confederation Congress and later as first United States Senator for Maryland. He was the sole Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence.[66] Carroll was the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence, and the longest lived.[67] He was also the cousin of the first Catholic Bishop in the United States, Archbishop John Carroll, of which the University holds several memorabilia in the museum of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.[68][69] The Carroll family has had a huge impact in the history of Catholicism in the United States and Notre Dame.[70] The name Carroll Hall had originally been given to a dormitory for approximately 350 boys 13–17 years old that was located in the west wing of the Main Administration building, but it was suppressed in 1946 when the rooms were converted into office space and the name retired.[71]

Since 1966, Carroll has housed undergraduate male students, except briefly from 1970 until 1977, when it hosted graduate students. Ever since Holy Cross Hall was demolished in 1990, Carroll has been the only undergraduate dormitory on a lake. The current rector is Eric T. Styles, from Chicago, who received a BFA in Electronic Media from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Musicand an MA in Applied Philosophy from Loyola University Chicago. he previously worked at The Theatre School at DePaul University and in Campus Ministry at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in Winona.[72]

Description

Carroll Hall lays on the southwest shores of St. Mary’s Lake, from which it enjoys views of the Main Administration Building and the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.[73] In front of the building is Carroll Lawn, also known as Far Quad, and hosts a sand volleyball court, and i between the hall and the lake is a basketball court.[74]

The hall is a five story building in yellow Notre Dame brick, with classical decorations and a simple unadorned facade. Its architect was Br. Charles Borromeo Harding, who also worked on Crowley, St. Edward's, and Corby Halls, and also on the Basilica. The first floor host mainly social spaces, with a large living room with portraits of past presidents, a kitchen, study rooms, the mailroom, and the chapel. The chapel is modern and simple, and is dedicated to St. André Bessette. The basement hosts a laundry room, a fitness room, and storage and utility spaces. The upper floors hosts the dorm rooms, which are mostly singles, doubles, triples and quads.[75]

Traditions

Nicknamed the Vermin, Carroll Hall is known for its distance from the rest of campus, and is nicknamed 'Siberia' in the winter. It has the smallest populations of students and the largest rooms on campus.[76] The distant location from the rest of the campus and the small size of the dorm, makes the community especially tight knit and has given rise to many traditions and unique features.[77]

Caroll Hall
Carroll Hall and FarQuad seen from St. Mary's lake

Each year, before the first home football game, the approximately 50 First Years in Carroll dye their hair blond, in a tradition dubbed Vermin Go Gold, in support of the football team.[77] On football Saturdays, the Hall's facade is draped with a huge banner displaying the text "GO IRISH".[78][79] It is made out of 72 bed sheets, 52,000 staples, and 5 gallons of green paint, and it is raised up on Friday afternoons.[80]

Started in 1998 and held on the first Friday of December, Carroll Christmas is one of Notre Dame's best known signature events and is Carroll's signature event.[81][82] Events feature the lighting a 40-foot Christmas tree, performances from on-campus groups like the Glee Club an Humor Artists, Christmas carols from all the Vermin, horse drawn carriages on Carroll Drive, dance parties, a giant "C" hanging on the facade, and paper luminaries.[83][84] Carroll residents also dress up as Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, and the elves to entertain the guests, which comprise around a 1000 students every year.[85] In recent years, Carroll Christmas has featured an appearance by ESPN College Gameday Analyst Digger Phelps, an extremely competitive cookie contest, and a horse-drawn carriage from LaFortune student center all the way to Carroll. Previously, into the mid-1990s, Carroll Hall held an annual haunted house on the Friday closest to Halloween.

Since 2015 (as part of AnToastal), Carroll has launched the Lakeside Music Festival, which takes place in the spring and it includes music by many different campus groups, food, sports, and other activities, and it raises money for the Boys & Girls Club of St. Joseph’s County.[86] Other events include Third Floor Abs, a fitness program that has spread throughout campus, and Friday cookouts, which take place on the FarQuad in front of the lake. Carroll Hall's charity efforts go towards helping Boys & Girls Club of St. Joseph’s County, and Carroll residents volunteer to help kids with homework and provide school supplies.[87]

Cavanaugh Hall
Cavanaugh Hall

History

Cavanaugh was originally built as a male dorm in 1936. It was named after Notre Dame's fifth president, Rev. John W. Cavanaugh. It was originally constructed to be the most northern and eastern building for the campus, however this changed a year later when Zahm Hall was built. Architects were Maginnis and Walsh of Boston in collegiate Gothic style. During World War II, Cavanaugh, along with four other dorms, housed naval officers-in-training. In 1994, with female enrollment to the university increasing, the dorm was converted to a female dorm. The Chapel is dedicated to the Holy Spirit.[90]

The current rector is Lauren Donahue.

Traditions

In the 1980s, its residents were called the Cavemen, supposedly in recognition of its large, cavernous basement, but more likely because Cavemen has the same first three letters as the Hall's name. An attempt was made to change the name to the Crusaders in 1988. The name was changed to the Cavaliers in 1994 and then to the Chaos.[91] A tradition winter ball called the Snowball is held every winter; many related activities take place in the preceding week. Mother-Daughter and Father=Daughter weekend are held alternatively in spring.

South Quad, University of Notre Dame
Dillon Hall

History

Dillon Hall was designed in 1931 by architects Charles Donagh Maginnis and Timothy Walsh in Collegiate Gothic style, with stone carvings adorning the facade and the interiors. The exterior features carvings of saints and athletes. Dillon's chapel is dedicated to St. Patrick, and a side altar is dedicated to St. Olaf, in honor of Knute Rockne, of Norwegian ancestry.[93] The dormitory was built with the proceeds, $52,000, from the 1925 Rose Bowl.[94] It was named after Fr. Patrick Dillon, a Notre Dame graduate who was only 33 years old in 1865 when he was named the University's second president. He was considered lenient in disciplinary matters, a trait that made him popular among students but that had him removed from the administration only one year in his tenure. Soon after he died of disease.

During World War II it hosted Navy and Marine officers.

Traditions

Dillon's signature event of every year was formerly the Dillon Hall Pep Rally, hosted on South Quad on the Thursday preceding the first home game.[95] The pep rally was a comedy/variety show performed outside of Dillon the Thursday before the first home football game of the fall.[96][97][98][99][100][101] Dillon's current signature event is Opening Day, a wiffle ball tournament between the sections of Dillon. The hall gives out free food, as well as hosts games and activities in the courtyard between Dillon and South Dining Hall.

Dillon's other major event is Milkshake Mass. Every Thursday during the school year, Dillon hosts Mass in their chapel, followed by milkshakes for all who attend. The chapel is regularly filled for Milkshake Mass, with many students sitting on the floor. As a result of Milkshake Mass' popularity, many other halls at Notre Dame have started doing their own signature masses, with different foods being given out at each.

Duncan Hall is the second newest male dorm on campus. It is located on West Quad, between McGlinn Hall and the Golf Course.

History

Duncan was built as the first of four new dorms built by the university to alleviate overcrowding in the existing residence halls. It was the first built since the completion of the original four West Quad dorms (Welsh Family, Keough, O'Neill, and McGlinn) in 1996/1997. It fills the space of former volleyball courts west of McGlinn Hall, filling the quad out to its western limit at Holy Cross Drive.

Duncan Hall, Notre Dame
Duncan Hall

Duncan Hall is named for its benefactor Raymond T. Duncan, Notre Dame class of 1952, a personal friend of Joe O'Neill, benefactor of O'Neill Hall (also on West Quad). The Duncan family has strong family ties to the University, including Duncan's father Walter (class of 1912), two of his brothers and two of his sons.[108]

The dorm broke ground in March 2007 and was completed in 17 months, on schedule, to be opened for its first residents during ordinary move-in in August 2008. Mackey Mitchell Architects was the designer of this project.

The dorm incorporates features such as super-quads, which include private bathrooms, and super-doubles with bay windows, as well as a study lounge and social space in every section, 24-hour space with a large kitchen that hosts a food-service business called the Highlander Grille, and a basement with an exercise room.[109] The rooms are larger than typical on-campus dorm rooms, and the dorm is generally viewed as relatively luxurious.

The inaugural freshman class was filled, as with any other dorm, by the random process of the Office of Residence Life and Housing. Residents from other three classes, however, were selected through a random lottery process six months prior to move-in, choosing 150 students from a voluntary applicant pool.[110]

On Friday, October 3, 2008, Duncan Hall was formally dedicated, an event marked by a Mass in the chapel presided over by Fr. John Jenkins, University president, and attended by the Duncan family and distinguished guests as well as the dorm's residents and hall staff.

Traditions

The signature event of Duncan Hall is Higlander Highrise, a formal ball held in Willis Tower in Chicago.[111] The Duncan Classic is a golf tournament held in the spring.

Farley Hall

History

Farley was originally built as a men's dorm to house 199 men. It was the first dorm constructed after World War II, and Father Ted Hesburgh served as the first rector. It offered a variety of rooms including singles, doubles, triples, and quads. It was the first dorm to try the "stay-hall" system which is still in place today. In this system residents stay in the hall for all four years rather than being divided by class/rank as they were up until the 1960s. Farley became one of the 5 original women's dorms in 1973 when the university opened its doors to women. Sr. Jean Lenz was the first female rectress and writes of her experiences in her book, Loyal Sons and Daughters.[114]

Fisher hall ND
Fisher Hall

History

Constructed in 1952 by Peter Schumacher and Sons Construction Co. of Mishawaka, Indiana as housing for 156 seniors (with mostly single rooms), Fisher Hall was dedicated by Sally Fisher to her husband, Fred J. Fisher, the first president of the Fisher Body Company in Detroit, and former member of the Board of Trustees.[115] Fisher was built to be a temporary dormitory due to the increase in students with the passing of the GI Bill in 1944. At the time of construction, Fisher was the second residence hall to have a social lounge.

Summer 2001 renovations included a new social space and a new chapel. Over the years, renovations to Fisher Hall have created a mix of single, double, and quad rooms. Fisher Hall contains more single rooms than most other dorms at Notre Dame, and consequently receives several students who "float" for singles from across campus.

Fisher's sister dorms are Howard and Badin.[116]

Traditions

Fisher Hall's signature event is the Fisher Regatta, hosted annually at the end of the spring semester. The regatta was founded by freshman Jay Farraher (class of 1990) in 1987. Various dorms compete by submitting homemade boat entries in races on Saint Mary's Lake, located on campus.

Fisher Hall 2
The large green F outside Fisher Hall

In the fall of 2002, a second signature event, the Fisher Hall Roofsit, was created to benefit a selected charity by having hall members sit on the roof of Fisher for 50 consecutive hours to commemorate the then 50th anniversary of the hall's construction. This event has been expanded over recent years to include a campus-wide dodgeball tournament, musical performances, and other social events. As of 2015, due to pressure from the university, the roofsit was discontinued.

A big "F" letter hangs on the side of the hall. The original insignia was placed in the 80s but was stolen by the residents of Pangborn Hall in 1991. It was replaced with a bigger plastic letter.

Howard Hall ND
Howard Hall

History

Howard Hall is one of the oldest buildings on the campus of Notre Dame, and is in many ways a trailblazer.

Howard Hall
Howard Hall arch

Constructed in 1924, Howard Hall was the first instance of a Notre Dame building being built in the collegiate Gothic style, and was also the first building to be named after a lay person – Notre Dame Law Professor, poet, Civil War soldier, Laetare Medal winner and Indiana State senator and Indiana Supreme Court Justice Timothy Edward Howard. The dorm was converted from a male to a female residence hall in 1987, at which point the dorm took on the now-familiar Duck as its mascot. The decision was heavily protested by Howard residents, who wore black or white armbands labeling themselves as the "Howard Homeless" to lament the loss of a fraternity-like atmosphere and such Howard traditions as the Howard Hat and Tie Party.

Howard Hall is probably best known for its quaint double archway that separates the first floor into two sections and passes under the upper three floors of the hall. Adorning these arches and the other main entrances to Howard are a number of gargoyle-type stone carvings depicting anything from an owl to a student who has just received a less-than-stellar report card. To the west, the archway is adorned with a statue of Saint Timothy. The chapel features a pietà by sculptor Jean de Marco.

The current rector is Amanda Springstead.

Traditions

The Duck mascot was chosen after the 1986 film Howard the Duck by George Lucas.

Although it is one of the smallest dorms on campus, Howard Hall has a number of signature events throughout the year. Among these events are the Howard Hoedown (a fall dance), an annual bone marrow drive, Dunk-a-Duck (a dunk tank that raises money for melanoma awareness) and Totter for Water (a 24-hour teeter-totter fundraiser designed to help third world countries access clean water).[118]

In 2010, Howard Hall was named Women's Hall of the Year by Hall President's Council. In 2012, Howard Hall was awarded the distinction of being Hall of the Year.[119]

History

Marilyn M. Keough Hall was dedicated on September 27, 1996. It is located on West Quad across from South Dining Hall with neighbors McGlinn Hall, O'Neill Hall, and Welsh Family Hall. Keough Hall is named after Marilyn Keough, wife of Donald Keough, who served as chairman of Notre Dame's Board of Trustees from 1986–1992. It was built as one of several replacement dorms for Flanner Hall and Grace Hall, both of which were turned into administrative buildings.

Fr. Tom Doyle, C.S.C. served as Keough Hall's first Rector. Upon completing his Seminary training, he helped to dedicate Marilyn M. Keough Hall in August 1996. Fr. Tom was ordained a priest in the Congregation of Holy Cross in the Spring of 1998 amidst his family, friends and 250 spirited young Men of Keough Hall. Doyle now serves as the Executive Vice President of University Relations at the University of Portland. Fr. Pete Jarret, C.S.C. arrived as rector in 2001 and led the community until 2006. Mark DeMott served as interim rector for the 2006-2007 school year. Keough Hall's current Rector is Deacon Brogan Ryan, CSC.

Traditions

Despite its young history, Keough Hall residents have established themselves as an up-and-coming dorm community with great enthusiasm and brotherhood, winning Men's Hall of the Year in 2009.

Keough Hall 1

Every fall the dorm hosts the Keough Hall Chariot Race, in which the different sections within Keough, as well as other dorms, build chariots to race against one another. This signature event lasts all day and is followed that night by a dance. In the spring, Keough once held a dance formal called the White Wedding in which the members of the dorm create a comical mock wedding ceremony for other members of the dorm and their dates. Late in the year the dorm hosts the Aussie Fest, which usually wraps up the year with a cookout, games and music.

Knott Hall, a male dorm, is located on Mod Quad close to Siegfried Hall and the Theodore Hesburgh Library.[121]

History

Knott Hall on Quad
West side of Knott Hall, giving on Mod Quad

It was built in 1988 as a women's hall and named after Marion Burk Knott since the money was donated by Baltimore philanthropist and businessman Henry Joseph Knott. It was the home of the Knott Angels.

When Grace and Flanner male dorms became administrative offices, residents from Flanner moved to Keough Hall and O'Neill Hall. In order to maintain gender balance, female residents of Siegfried and Knott moved to Welsh Family Hall and McGlinn Hall and residents from Grace moved to Siegfried and Knott in 1997.[122]

He earned his BA from Saint Edward's University and his M.Ed in Mathematics from Saint Mary's College in Winona, Minnesota.

Traditions

Knott men are called Juggerknotts.

Lyons Hall is a female dorm located on South Quad, and constitutes the "Golden Coast" with Morrissey Hall and Howard Hall. Built in 1925 in Gothic style, it is one of the oldest dorms on campus.

History

Lyons Hall, facing SQ
Lyons Hall, giving on South Quad

It was constructed in 1925 as a residence for 195 men. It was one of the first residence halls to incorporate the proximity of the lake in its design (thus, the picturesque views of St. Mary's Lake through its archway). Dedicated in honor of Joseph Lyons, an English professor in the 1860s, it was originally known as an honors hall.[123]

The post-World War I college boom led to an influx of students and a housing shortage at Notre Dame. Father Matthew Walsh, then the University's President, commissioned a major physical expansion which included the building of Howard, Morrissey, and Lyons residence halls. These three were designed as a group in 1925 by Francis Kervick and Vincent Fagan, members of the Architecture faculty. Lyons, in particular, was designed in order to better integrate the lakes into the campus landscape.

Lyons hosted Navy Midshipmen during World War II.

In 1974 it was converted to Notre Dame's sixth residence hall for women. In 2013, in underwent a $6.2 million renovation.

Namesake

Lyons Hall is dedicated to the memory of Professor Joseph A. Lyons, one of Notre Dame's most distinguished early faculty members.[124] Lyons first came to Notre Dame as a fifteen-year-old orphan in 1848, entering the shoemaker's shop as an apprentice. By 1851 he had impressed even Father Sorin with his determination and attitude. As a reward, the President gave him one free year of tuition at the University, and Lyons entered the Scholasticate to study for the ministry. After several years he decided to pursue a career in teaching instead of the priesthood. Lyons graduated from Notre Dame in 1862, receiving highest honors.

Lyon's Arch

Lyons Arch
Lyons Arch, University of Notre Dame

The Lyons arch, by far the building's most distinctive feature, "frames St. Mary's Lake, providing a delightful vista as well as a picturesque entrance to the hall." The arch, designed by Kervick, "was so sited that from several vantage points on the western half of the South Quadrangle (for example, from the front entrance steps of the South Dining Hall) a walker, while surrounded by buildings, could have a view of the lake." A statue of Saint Joseph the worker stands atop the archway, a work of Hungarian sculptor Eugene Kormendi. The construction of Lyons Hall was completed in the spring of 1927.[123] A popular urban legend says that if a couple walks and kisses under Lyon's Arch, they are bound to marry in the future.[125]

Traditions

Lyons Hall
Lyons Hall arch

The basement of Lyons is referred to as the "lair" or the "den". The signature event of the hall is the Mara Fox Fun Run, established in 1993 to honor Fox, a Lyons freshman killed by a drunk driver. It consists of a 5k and a 1k, and the profits go towards a scholarship for students of Spanish. Another memorial to Fox is a large Central American cross that hangs in the hall lounge. The hall hosts the Lyons Luau fall dance ball in front of Saint Mary's Lake. Lyons also hosts a week dedicated to women's empowerment during Spirit Week. The women of Lyons Hall compete in various sports, including basketball, bowling, cross country, dodgeball, flag football, golf, lacrosse, racquetball, soccer, table tennis, tennis, and volleyball.

Its chapel is dedicated to All Souls. It has a vaulted ceiling, and it was renovated in 2014 as a gift from the Brolick family.[126] Lyons Hall was featured in the movie Rudy.[127]

McGlinn is located on West Quad, behind South Dining Hall and in between O'Neill Family Hall and Duncan Hall. Built in 1997, McGlinn is one of the newer dorms on campus and has modern day amenities, such as air conditioning and an elevator. With a capacity of 270 residents, McGlinn is the largest female dorm on campus.[132] The coat of arms is taken from the McGlinn family, with the double headed eagle, while the shamrock is the symbol of the hall.

History

Constructed in 1997 through the contributions of Terrence and Barbara McGlinn, McGlinn Hall is one of the newest dorms at the University of Notre Dame. The Angels of Knott Hall (now a male residence) moved into McGlinn in the Fall of 1997 and quickly established the dorm as one full of spirit and pride. It joins Keough, O'Neill, and Welsh Family Halls on the West Quad – sometimes called the "Suburbs" because of the modern amenities of air conditioning, elevators, and the largest rooms on campus. McGlinn enjoys a convenient location, only a brief walk to the bookstore, athletic fields, South Dining Hall and Reckers.

McGlinn Hall 1
McGlinn Hall

Sr. Mary A. Lynch, S.S.J., M.A. is a sister of St. Joseph from Philadelphia, PA. Sr. Mary has been rector of McGlinn since August 2005 [133] and works in campus ministry as well. McGlinn residents fondly refer to Sister Mary as "Smary" and often stop by her apartment on the first floor to say hello and grab a few (or more than a few) pieces of candy.

Fr. Tom Blantz, CSC lived in McGlinn from the time its construction was completed in 1997 before moving out in 2015. He has worked as a history professor at Notre Dame and retired in 2012 to part-time teaching. Fr. Tom presided over mass in McGlinn Hall Chapel frequently. He always kept Snickers bars in a bowl outside of his apartment.

Fr. David Tyson, CSC has lived in McGlinn since August 2015. He previously worked at the university in the 1970s and 1980s before being elected president of the University of Portland. Fr. David is now the president of Holy Cross College.[134]

Traditions

Casino Night is McGlinn Hall's signature event held every winter. It is a night of fun "casino-style" games, with most attendees playing roulette and blackjack with play money. All of the proceeds from the event are donated by the Shamrocks to St. Adalberts, a local grade school in South Bend. McGlinn also runs a Bubble Soccer tournament, a signature event that started in the fall of 2015, and is held in the fall and spring every year. Players create a team and play soccer while in giant, inflatable bubbles, with the proceeds also going to St. Adalberts.

McGlinn is one of the few dorms with living donors. Because of this attribute, every resident in McGlinn receives a Christmas gift from the McGlinn family in early December. In 2012, every girl received a two-pound box of assorted chocolates to ensure a maximum energy level throughout study sessions and final exams.

McGlinn has also won the Kelly Cup, an award given to the female dorm with the most participation in interhall sports, seven times, in 2009, and from 2011-2016.[135]

History

Pangborn Hall was built in 1955, named for Thomas C. Pangborn and John W. Pangborn. The Pangborns made their money manufacturing sand-blasting-type equipment. They were supporters of numerous educational, religious, scientific and charitable endeavors. Pope Pius XII named Thomas Pangborn a Knight of Malta. Pope John XXIII dubbed him a Knight of Saint Gregory the Great, and in 1964 Pope Paul VI awarded the philanthropist the title of papal count.[136]

Pangborn Hall
Pangborn Hall

It was the 15th building built on campus, and one of four that was dedicated in 1955. Pangborn and other dorms built in the 1950s were meant to be temporary housing to accommodate a spike in enrollment caused by the G.I. Bill. Pangborn represented a modernist step away from collegiate gothic. The building was designed by architects Holabird, Root and Burgee of Chicago. The hall was originally built as a residence for male students, when its nickname was the Violence, but was converted to a women's dorm in 1992 and became the Pangborn Phoxes.

Pangborn's Chapel of the Annunciation of Our Lady, renovated in 1995, features carved-wood Stations of the Cross imported from northern Italy. The stained-glass windows honor eight saints canonized the year prior to the hall's dedication.

In January 2016 it was announced that the residents of Pangborn hall would move to the newly built Flaherty Hall. Pangborn hall will serve as a "swing hall" to host students from halls undergoing renovations: members of Walsh Hall for the 2016-17 academic year, members of Badin Hall for the 2017-2018 year, and members of Morrissey Manor for the 2018-2019 year.[137] The future of Pangborn is currently unknown.

Although not specifically labelled as a PE tradition, Flag Football is one of the top interhall sports that Pyros participate in every year. Since 2013, the dorm's flag football team (known as PEFFB) has been coached by Notre Dame football players, including DaVaris Daniels and Malik Zaire. In 2015, PEFFB was coached by Zaire as well as his teammates Sheldon Day and Cole Luke. As a result, the dorm's football team was featured on the Showtime Special A Season with Notre Dame Football as a segment on the extracurricular lives of Zaire, Day, and Luke.[139]

Siegfried Hall

History

Constructed in 1988 through the financial commitments of Robert ('37) and Ray ('65) Siegfried, the building was converted from a female hall to a male hall in 1997 after Flanner and Grace Halls became office space. The female residents of Siegfried Hall moved to Welsh Family Hall on West Quad. After the move, the new residents adopted the nickname "Ramblers" which was one of the former names used by the University before "Fighting Irish" was adopted. Siegfried is rivals with Knott Hall, the other male Mod Quad residence hall.

Siegfried and Knott are the only two residence halls to convert from female to male, in order to preserve Mod Quad's gender balance when male dorms Flanner and Grace became offices.

Traditions

Siegfried raises funds for the South Bend Homeless Shelter through its annual Day of Man fundraiser. On this cold February day, the Ramblers venture out in only T-shirts, flip-flops, and shorts.[140] Siegfried residents are involved in activities ranging from the Notre Dame Marching Band to leadership roles in various clubs. Siegfried hosts two dances each year. The Winter Formal is held at the Warren Clubhouse. It is the only dance held at the Warren Golf Club, and is usually held the first weekend in December. Siegfried’s annual retreat usually takes place in March, in a variety of places including in a state park, and across the lakes. Siegfried has a strong tradition of interhall athletic competition.

History

Stanford and Keenan, joined together in Siamese twin fashion, were built in 1957. Of the two, Stanford is officially a bit older as it was dedicated in October of that year (Keenan was dedicated in November). Stanford was a gift of a Notre Dame graduate who would later serve as a lay trustee of the university. Grattan T. Stanford, class of 1904, was an Indiana native who spent three decades as general counsel of the Sinclair Oil Corporation.

Stanford and Keenan share a handsome chapel that contains one of Notre Dame's finest icons, the magnificent crucifix made by celebrated sculptor Ivan Mestrovic. Located just off the hall's lobby, the Chapel of the Holy Cross has a series of exquisite stained-glass windows featuring various types of crosses. Its highlight is Mestrovic's 13-foot mahogany crucifix, which the artist-in-residence executed especially for the chapel in 1957. Originally, the crucifix hung above a companion altar made of travertine marble imported from Italy. The altar was removed in the wake of Vatican II changes, but, happily, the Mestrovic crucifix remains to immeasurably grace the chapel. In the lobby another of Mestrovic's works, a wood carving titled Christ as Young Boy Teaching, is present.

Traditions

Stanford Hall's mascot is the Griffin. Its original mascot was a stud bull, hence the moniker "Stanford Studs". According to Notre Dame Magazine, "the switch was made in February 1999 to honor Father Robert F. Griffin, CSC, University chaplain for 30 years and a campus icon until his death in October 1999."[141]

Stanford's traditional rival dorm is its twin Keenan Hall. Every year their interhall football matchup is deemed "The Battle for the Chapel" with the winner gaining naming rights to the chapel. Most recently, Stanford has retained the chapel naming rights in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Notable Residents

Graduate and family housing

Fischer Graduate Residences provide on-campus housing for house single or married graduate and professional students in either one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartments. Fischer opened in fall 1991.[145] At the end of the 2017-2018 school year Fischer Graduate Residences became the designated housing for students with dependent children, as University Village closed at the end of that school year.

The complex for students with children is Village Apartments.

Overlook at Notre Dame is a university-related community that offers studio or one-bedroom apartments directly on the eastern edge of campus.[146]

Notre Dame is in the South Bend Community School Corporation.[147] Darden Primary, Tarkington Traditional Elementary, Clay Intermediate, and Clay High School serve as the local public high schools for children of graduate students.[148]
