Notre Dame's Class of 2020 battled faculty and staff in what has become a well-loved tradition - an epic water balloon showdown! Auctioned off to the highest bidder at Notre Dame's annual 'party of the year' benefit, the rights to participate went to the freshman class this year. In addition to being a whole lot of fun, the water balloon battle raised $2,500 for tuition assistance and program development.
Well over 300 seniors, juniors and their guests enjoyed a beautiful night of laughter, dancing and great food at this year's prom. The event, attended by 89% percent of the Class of 2017 Ravens, had a Beauty & the Beast theme complete with singing greeters and giant cutlery!
