Justice immersion opportunities are powerful learning tools that surround a student with an intense experience. Through local, national and international immersion experiences, students are empowered to work effectively with diverse populations in a variety of settings to build global perspective, cultural competency and cultural fluency. This week 20 Notre Dame freshmen participated in a local plunge experience at Sacred Heart Community Service, located in the heart of our downtown San Jose neighborhood.

Notre Dame's Regent Collective Dance Company presented its first dance extravaganza, Welcome to the Circus, last week. The show featured jazz, ballet and modern dance performances and was enjoyed by more than 250 attendees!

Notre Dame's on-campus student group, Latinas Unidas, partnered with campus ministry to organize a celebration of the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Notre Dame's Robotics Team, The Janksters, competed at Capital City Classic, their second and final 2018 off-season competition, in Davis in late October. The Janksters traveled with only a third of the team, about 20 people, which meant many people stepped into new roles.
