Every Notre Dame graduate is part of a network of alums whose history, legacy and traditions date back to 1851.   Through participation in several activities and programs with our alums and our students, we aim to create a global network that supports the life-long growth of each Notre Dame student.  We encourage all Notre Dame alums to visit campus often, keep us up to date with your life events, and to stay connected with Notre Dame and the alum community.  

If you have an update to share, we want to hear about it!  Please use this class notes submission form to share with us news on family, career, school, and more! We welcome submissions for Class Notes.
