From Humble Beginnings

Independence Day is a great time to reflect on our humble beginnings and our forefathers before us, not only for our country but for Our Lady's University as well. This article from the New Zealand Tablet on July 4, 1879, recalls Notre Dame as a "treasure to the West" and the "most flourishing Catholic educational institution in the United States." This shows how we were always a national, if not international University, important not only to Catholics but to America as well.

Today is also the 75th anniversary of Frank Leahy's wedding. So keep him in your thoughts, and remember the glory days of national championships soon to be restored. Happy iNDependence Day!
