Spirit and Sisterhood
I left NDB with a very close network of friends, who are all high quality people. I keep in touch with many of the women from my class, some of whom were either in, or at, my wedding! It is not a coincidence that when I see former classmates, everyone is thriving. These women are flourishing in their careers and doing work in their personal lives that improves the world for those around them. I think NDB provides a foundation that helps build up strong, confident women who are a step ahead of their peers as they enter the real world
I am grateful for my NDB education because of the lifelong friendships I made as a teenager. My best friends from high school are still my best friends today! We still meet often and have shared so many of life's ups and downs. NDB provided a solid foundation for us to grow as caring, confident, spiritual young women.
I am grateful for an NDB education because it went beyond schooling. NDB is a community of lifelong learners that gives us the knowledge we need for life, the confidence of speaking up and the comfort of knowing we can always come home.
My years at Notre Dame are full of memories. My best friend to this day was my best friend in High School. Most importantly, the belief in ourselves, which fueled the strength we needed in our life to overcome obstacles, was instilled. The friendships, the dedicated teachers and the continued support are just a little of the joys that helped prepare me for the future.
NDB is not just a school, it is a lifelong community and a timeless sisterhood. In joining NDB, you are welcomed into a lineage of innovative women who create positive change in the world. Students don’t just go to Notre Dame, they are PROUD to go to Notre Dame and show their Tiger spirit. The NDB experience is like no other. Whether Tigers are cheering on peers at athletic events, performing in an Aquacades routine, or singing class chants at the top of their lungs at a spirit rally, students love to show school spirit and celebrate the spirit that Notre Dame is. These are the moments that bond Tigers together in the lived experience of sisterhood.
Spirit Rallies and Assemblies
I love Aquacades because it brings together so many different students with different talents. 100% of students and staffulty are involved so it feels so inclusive. - Kari Allegri, ‘96
