Tomorrow is Notre Dame's first annual Day of Giving. It is a full day dedicated to supporting tuition assistance for ND students. It is one day for one cause, and one impact. Join us as we gather together to make a difference for future generations and offer others the gift of an ND education. 

Letus pray. Heavenly Father, Bless our school community this week, as we gather together during our ND Day of Giving.  Open our hearts to generously share our monetary gifts that will have a major impact for future Women of Impact. Help us to grow closer as a school community in this cause. May we recognize that the gifts we share today will bring about a brighter future to many in our community. All that is good comes from you, and we pray that we continue to do good for your greater glory.  We ask this in the name of all that is Good and Holy, Amen.

     - Find free, on-street parking on the surface streets around campus
     - Park in the City of San Jose's I280/First Street parking lot and either pay the $5 daily rate at the kiosks in the lot or purchase monthly passes through the City of San Jose
Students in the class of 2025 can expect sign ups to open in April to enter the lottery for their senior year.

Browse the digital catalog of class ring offerings on the Herff Jones website! Rings can be ordered online for students of all grade levels and turn-around time from production to shipping is approximately 5-6 weeks. Please email Mike Rabago (mrabago@herffjones.com) with any questions.
