As a Catholic learning community, Notre Dame provides an on-campus opportunity for students to be prepared for the sacrament of confirmation into the Church. This year, 40 upperclassmen were confirmed at the Confirmation Mass on Friday, May 21st. It is traditionally held at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph, Notre Dame's place of worship. The current COVID-19 situation allowed for the students and families to attend Mass in person.

Each year, the sophomores at Notre Dame are invited to listen to the testimony of a Holocaust survivor. This year, the Class of 2023 listened to Anita’s testimony, hosted by the Jewish Family and Children’s Services (JFCS) Holocaust Center. In their religion, history and English classes, the Jaguars are learning and reflecting on the Holocaust and its toll on the world. Themes of forgiveness, inclusivity and love are some of the topics they are focusing on, and Anita’s story reminded them of those concepts.

After more than a year of full remote learning, Notre Dame opened up a full hybrid learning environment for all students this week. For several months, there has been a hybrid pilot program for select students dependent on which courses they took. But starting on April 26th, a new schedule began for students who opted for hybrid learning.

Notre Dame sophomore, Malyna '23 was chosen from to participate in 2L® NextGen Program, a week-long leadership and civic engagement program for current high school sophomores and juniors.

The last time the Class of 2023 Jaguars were on campus all together was in March 2020 right before campus shut down. But on Friday, April 23, more than 90 sophomores came to campus to participate in Sophomore Breakaway Day, a day just for them to enjoy and step away from the stress of classes. They took part in a variety of activities while spending time with those they missed over the year as they prepared for the beginning of full hybrid classes for the last grading period.

Sophomore Snikitha Banda was named a Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) 2021 Finalist after being awarded the Grand Prize - Best of Championship Award at the 2021 Synopsys Silicon Valley Science and Engineering Fair for her project “Style Transfer Augmentation: Cancer Subtype Classification using Genetic Status in Histopathology Images.” She will be competing at ISEF alongside her peers from around the world next month.
