You ' re moving into an unfamiliar place, meeting new people from all over the world, and basically saying goodbye to life as you ' ve ever known it. It ' s a time of transition for everyone, and what better way to get over your fears than diving right in to the world of " Frosh- O. " Freslmian Orientation at Notre Dame is a mL of helpful tips, crazy games, embarrassing moments, and introduction, after introduction, after introduction! From helping new students move iii to putting on skits that demonstrate University mles, each domi has its own Frosh-O staff that packs the first weekend on campus full of activities. Tlie hectic schedule may leave you exhausted by the time Monday comes around, but it also helps you to forget your anxieties and see Notre Dame more iuid more like home. Perhaps the most important part of the orientation weekend is the exposure new students get to their classmates. Besides meeting the boys or girls from your own domi, Frosh-O includes many activities that bring dorms from all over campus together for fun, usually slightly embarrassing, events. Karaoke with Knott, being served breakfast by Fisher, " tie date " escorts to Domer Fest and a luau with O ' Neil are all activities McGlinn girls may experience. Usually at such events students are raiidomly matched up or put in groups before the exciting, but slightly awkward, mingling comniences. " Wliere are you from? " and " Wliat ' s your major? " are two questions you can be sure will begin many conversations throughout the weekend! Frosh-O would just not he Frosh-O without its fair share of serenading and new songs. Many guys ' dorms like Zalim, O ' Neill, and Keough spend some of their time running throughout campus and singing some crowd pleasers to random girls ' domis. " Build Me Up Buttercup, " " You ' ve Lost That Loviiig Feeling, " and various boy band numbers are popular picks that are sung in earnest trying to capture some attention, or at least please the Frosh-O leaders! Often dance routines, surprise morning wake-up calls, or nins tlirough the Stonehenge fountain follow these iniicxent outings. And of course, throughout the weekend, students are taught " Tl-ie Fight Song " and the " Alma Mater " to belt out for the first but surely not the last rime as a Domer. The orientation weekend is critical to a student ' s success at Non-e Dame, not only because of the free food and fun, but also dorm unity that begins by wearing your dorm ' s shirt for three days straight! It creates friendship, not only with classmates but with upperclassmen and advisors, it encourages discussion and questions, and makes people feel comfortable with the campus. The silly activities make everyone let down their guards a little and enjoy themselves, despite any fears or concerns. Simply by knowing each other better by the time Sunday arrives, it ' s easier to say goodbye to parents and start your college classes! e-Y klATULttH Paley Freshmen are usually involved in games like scavenger hunts that involve imitating popular buildings on campus, including Touchdown Jesus seen on the side of the Heshurgh Library.

Photo counesy of Megan Camnw iCU ti c,oy ' r ' ' U« Campus Life a Activities on Campus Tlie war in Iraq, terrorism, the economy, homosexual marriage, and abortion are just some of the issues that have caused many Notre Dame students to shed the traditional reputation of apathy for involvement in the 2004 political campaigns of Republican President George W. Bush and Democratic Senator John Kerry. College Democrats and Republicans joined with he Rock the Vote campaign to register voters and increase voter awareness on the Notre Dame campus. For freshmen, studying the campaign began early. The fresbnen were assigned T ie Vanishng Voter as required summer reading. Tlie book deals with the trend of increasing apathy toward voting and politics. On September 2, 2004, author Thomas Patterson, a professor of government at Harvard University, visited Notire Dame for the First Year of Studies Academic Convocation. The convocation consisted of ;in interview followed by a question and answer periexf, wliich allowal students to ask Patterson about his h.x)k iind liis views. The first 250 students at the convocation received " Voting Irish " t-sliirts. In addition to numerous student debates, Natuynal Review cxlitor Richard Lowry and Tim Natiim editor David Com debatal at Washington Hall. Lowry presented the conservative argument while Gim offered the liberal. Tliey debated on many of the major issues of the campaign, focusing especially on the war. The College Republicans also sponsored a Republican convention watch at LaFortune. In addition, many domis and groups sponsored debate watches where students gathered to see President Bush and Senator Kerry face off on the issues. The director of labor policy for the Kerry Edwards campaign, Marco Trbovich, gave a lecture titled " Tlie Power of Libor in Presidential Politics. " UxA leaders also traveled to the Noo-e Dame campus. Joe Donnelly, a U.S. Representative for Indiana and the Democratic challenger to Chris Chocola, spoke to the QJlege Democrats at LaFortune. Chocola spoke to students at Saint Mary ' s College about his political experiences and his campaign. The Center for Serial Concerns offered a sbc-week, one-credit course called " QinscicTice in the Crossfire. " Stijdents, who ranged from freshmen to seniors, attended tliis class for two hours every Monday, participating in discussions and listening to guest speakers. Tlie class ' s purpose was to encourage students to vote using their conscience and take an active part in politics. In addition to diis class, the Center for Stxial Gincems also held numerous Iccaires on topics such as the election, trade, the role of religion in politics, the economy and Iraq. On October 26, a week before the general election, WVH, WSND-FM, NDTV, iind Sdmkmh Magazine held a mock election where students could cast dieir vote throughout the day at LaFortime. Bush won the mtx:k election by receiving 47.5% of die vote; Kerry Ciune in second with 46.8% . Many sftidents participated in the preparation for the 2004 election hv simply watching the live debates from LaFortune or their dorm ' s common areas.

The twenty-seven vibrant domi communities and the promise of accomnxxlations for four undergraduate years make Notre Dame unique among universities. Although domi life plays an integral role in sparking friendships and defining one ' s Notre Dame experience, it nonetheless can bectmie too stifling a " bubble " for some students. As Domers experience single-sex domis, parietals, and rectors over the years, conversations about moving off -campus inevitably arise. Some students immediately quash or embrace the idea of leaving their domi, wliile others take time to debate the merits of apartments and houses in the South Bend area. Turtle Creek, Qillege Paik, and Castle Point arc the most popular choices for students seeking apartments. Others choose to live iii houses with enough rtxims to kild their large groups of friends or within walking distance of their favorite bars. Often still surrounded by Notre Dame students, off- campus residents may discover new friends among their neighbors, people they might never have met if they had remained in their domis. Without parietals, friendships and relationships with the opposite sex are no longer limited to specific hours. Students can experience spacious rooms and closets, private bathrooms, and cabinets full oi their favorite ftxxJs. Renting an aparnnent or house also offers students a glimpse into real-world responsibilities such as paying bills, grex;ery shopping, and cleaning bathrwms. " While I miss the convenience of living on campus and running to Starbucks at 4 A.M., I love the freedom and extra space of an apartment, " says senior Bridget Veibneyer. She does mention another con of living off -campus: " Unless you get to sclx»l really early, you end up parking in the last row of thclot. " Senior Paul Morrison adds, " I like living off -campus lietter overall, but it won ' t Ix fun in the winter fccause I won ' t want to drive all the way to class. " For many groups of friends, however, the opportunities and conveniences ot moving ott -campus outweigh those of remainiiig in the domis. Senior Bill Kern chose to stay in O ' Neill Hall for his final year on campus. He says, " I have the rest of my life to live in a house or an apartment. For me, one of the l-iest parts of the Notre Dame experience is campus life. I love lnw all the resources that Notre Dame has to offer are still just outside my dtxir. " Upon hearing that a senior lives in the domi, many students wonder if they have chosen to be im R.A. A group of on-campus Badin seniors made sliirts to answer tliis question: " No, I ' m not an R.A. Let ' s be honest! " Although living on campus allows students to take advantage of Notre Dame ' s dynamic domi community, many students are ready for frealom from it. More importLUit th;m where a student chtxises to live, however, is the fact that they are with their friends, because tliis spirit of friendsliip and family is the tnie essence of the Notre Dame experience Y 6uamn 7H cC 0t ;uL.

Tliat is Stuith Dining Hall ranks as one of the best dining halls in the nation. When students are feelir g hungry- and are looking for a gixx.! meal without lia -ing to spend Re. points, the dining halls on campus iue the places to go. With so much variety ' and the ability- to be creatiw with our meals, the dining halls offer a quick meal luuI a fncnulK ' environment for students. " I enjoy the atmosphere ot the dining halls on campus, especially on Friday afternoons during Viking Dinner, " says senior Kevin Le;u ' . Because diey -are popular places to meet friends, talk with a professor, or take that special someone on a " dinuig hall date, " most students on campus find the dining halls to be quite comforting. Usuallv students stay well after a meal is finished to chat, patple-watch, or just sjx ' nd some time relaxing from the day ' s hectic events. If ou are not feeling ill the meiod for the dining hall there are still plenty of choices around campus to grab a meal. Reckers, located behind South Dining Hall, provides a variety of American- st ' le cuisine, including oven-baked pizzas, hamburgers, and die ever-popular smoodiies. Waddick ' s in O ' Shaugnessy Hall offers an older-style to the dining scene on campus and provides hot soup iind sandwiches, including a breakfast sandwich for those who may have some extra time before moniing classes start. The newly reno ' ated Legends just south of the stadium offers faculty, studmLs, and alumni a warm atmosphere widi an Insh apj-eal. Or, if you ' re a night owl then perhaps a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks will satisfy your needs. Starbucks is just one of die many franchises that Notre Dame and the LaFortune Student Center have to offer. Also located in LaFortune are Burger King, Subway, and Sbarro. Smdents flrek to these popular establishments, finding plenty to eat at reasonable prices as can be seen in the frequaith long lines. LaFortune is also known for die Huddle mart, which recently included Mexican ftxid in Buen Provecho for tacos and bunitos made to order. Also popular are die late night " Quarter Dogs, " all of die hotdogs you can eat for just a qu;irter each. Stime e ' en go to the Huddle tor die world ' s famous Edy ' s Ice Cream. Senior Patrick Fishbume says, " One of the best late night snacb has to be an Edy ' s chocolate milkshake from the Huddle. " Some of these eateries are also known for dieir social aspects. It is not uncommon to see students meeting with a professor in Starbucks over a cup of coffee to discuss a senior thesis, new theories in a particular area of suidy, or life in gaieral. Wiether it is for the fcKxl or just die amiosphere, the eatenes on campus are [xipular among all the students. B Y E etMPAN Lyhoj Campus Life x;: ik¥ , ' !S! ea W£ rWi Hard S A couple hours of class, a quick stop at the Rcxk, a few group meetings and off to the library for the iiight; tor most people, that would he more than a full day, hut ior many Notre Dame students there is something missing. That something is cold hard cash. In between hours of work and play, Notre Dame students also do their best to fill their pockets to afford some of the luxuries South Bend has to offer. Wliile South Bend is full of every name brand restaurant, clothing store, and coffee shop to work at, most students cannot pass up the convenience of on-campus employment. The University responds to the student necessity of keeping a ptisirive cash flow during the schcx.1l year by offering employment m almost every University department on campus; giving students just enough money for that 3 a.m. run to Steak n ' Shake. Wlien given the choice of making a few more dollars working off campus, but also having to fight Grape Road traffic at five in the attemixm, the choice becomes a no-brainer. Work on canipus fits every student ' s needs, v ' hether it lie the graveyard shift at Recker ' s, or bright and early at an empty Hcsburgh computer cluster. U ienever you can work, it seenis that Notre Dame can find a spot for you. Another great advantage to working on campus is the tmderstanding that on campus, friends are first, school second, and work fits in somewhere between reading du Lac and attending the Football Saturday Academic Lecture Series. Our bosses and supervisors are more than understanding of the demands put on a student during die year. Whether it be working two hours a week, earning enough for Papa Jolin ' s on a Sunday night, or several a week to pay the rent, campus emplo ment is more thiui willing to accomnuxiate all smdents. Although for some students, work is about much more than making enough to pay for an SYR gift, it is abtxit getting experience for their futures. Many seniors, serving as TAs in intrcxluctory classes, use tliis year ' s work as a stepping-stone to their careers. Other students make work a chance to get some exercise and work fiir RecSports as referees and officials. Maybe most importantly are those students who bravLxi half -eaten Rib-Eye-Que sandwiches and taco salads gone bad working for our dining halls, " latewr the job is, a common theme is the added responsibility ;ind opportunity it gives students to iiimiage their time, and get the satisfaction of spendiiig their own hard earned money. As senior J.T Arseniadis puts it, " It wasn ' t always the easiest thing to do, but come Friday night, you were always happy you put those couple hours in to get some money in your p(x:ket. " At Notre Dame this year, the grind of schtxil is tough, but thiinks to a couple hours of extra work put in at on-campus jobs, students :ire able to sit back and relax, even if it is only for a second or two.

At a school named for " Our Lidy, " Ccunpus kmdmarks ;ind student life icflcct the commitment to spirituiJity that thrives at Notre Dame. Prospective students and tourists marvel at the Ixrauty of the Basilica, light ciindles and kneel lor prayer at the C}rotto, and admire Touchdown Jesus on the side of the library. Students, however, ha ' e a much more intimate experience of religious life around campus. From distinctive chapels in each domi to the countless Emmaus groups, retreats, and unique faidi-based opportunities that abound, students have access to a wide array of choices satisfying their spiritual needs. Donn masses provide the cornerstone of spirituality for most students, but many supplement this Sunday-night Eucharist with weekly masses, Bible sharing groups, or theology classes. Non-Catholic students deepen and expkjte their spiriuialitv- in Interfaith programs, Iron Sharpens Iron, and Four:?. Special celebrations, such as Spanish-language masses, Dillon Hall ' s Milkshake Mass, and retreats designed specifically for female, male, Asian, African -American, and Latino students add to Notre Dame ' s xibtMit religious life. Tlie Center for Social Concerns also aims to cultivate Christian lifestyles among participants through its fall and spring break seminars, summer service projects, one-credit classes, and daily service activities. By stressing the values of Cadiolic Social Teacliing, the CSC hopes to deepen the faith of all students. Nick Dailey, a senior who hiis participated in several service projects over his fall and summer breaks, says, " I ' ve found that my faith has grown on Notre Dame ' s campus, not explicidy in a ' go to mass all the time ' sense, but in a way that has taught me to genuinely care about other people and to try to live a Cadiolic lifest ' le. " Regardless of religious denomination, a deep concern and compassion for others is instilled into students over their four years at Notre Dame. The number of students who engage in daily volunteer projects and in p(5St-graduate service bears witness to the rich spirituality of the campus. In addition to masses and service, Notre Dame offers more unique, unconventional opportunities for students to explore their faiths. Theology on Tap combines a comfortable setting and relaxed amiosphere with deep theological reflections. Retreats such as NDE and die Scjphomore Road Trip not only bring an individual in closer communion widi their faith hut cAso initiate lasting friendships. Our Lady sits atop the Golden Ctome to invite everyone to celebrate and live out their faith. The Grotto and domi chapels further symbolize die religious dimension of the university ' , but ultimately die power of spirituality on campus lies within each student. Whether becoming involved in Campus Ministry tmd the CHL or merely completing the basic Theology requirement, students are assurcxi that they will never lack one-of-a-kind spiritual opportunities during their rime at Notre Dame.

The students usually reply, " We don ' t have a Greek life on CMnpus...no fraternities, no sororities. . .we ha ' e domts. " Tlie camaraderie in the dorms at the Universit ' of Notre Dame reseinbles that found in the Greek system of some schtxils. Whether it is staging up late to talk with friends or checking upon a sick Iriend who livc-sdowri the hall , students pride diemselves in being a part of their donii part of something uiriciue. After finishing a loiig day of classes, extra curricukir activities, and some stui.l - time on the tenth fl(X r of the library, most students enjoy the walk hack to their domis where they will find all of the residents busy playing video games, watching movies, or sometimes just chatting. The donn is where most students go to simply enjoy the company of others. Because so many students consider their domis a true Home Away From Home, they also take pride in making it special by decorating their rooms to fit their personal styles and tastes. Usually the first tiling students do when they get hack to campus at the end of August is survey their rtxmi mid imagine what it will kxik like when they have finished decorating it in just a few- days ' rime. The goal is to turn the small, white- washed Notre Dame domi room, into the rtvm that would make their friends jealous. With an inspiration from the best of last year ' s rtxims, college movies, or ideas from the popular television show Trading Spaces, most students set out for carpet and a futon to give the rewm a classic, homey kxik without having to pay high prices. Because of the cramped spaces found in most domis, students ' main fi_x;us is on space-saving furniture and accessories diat srill bring the best out of their niche. . .and personalities. Most students even go as far as giving their room a theme. ' ' OCIiether it is everything Notre Dame (a popular choice among students), or a tropical setting resembling cmise ship commercials, a themed room brings out die most creative of the bunch. The large poster sales in the LaFortune Student Center at the brining of each schtxil year enable students to find the best additions to their ever-growing collection of posters, making their rcxim even more decorative than the next. Once the residents have hung the last shelf, finally finished hooking up their impressive entertainment centers, or just tucked in the last sheet to their complex lofted bed, they c;ui finally sit back and admire their new home LUid welcome die excitemait it will bring. orm rooms are suited for the personalities of its residents, as is seen here with Dillon Hall sophomores Emniijnual Zervoudakis tmd Sebastian Lara. ?hoio h) My Gailag i£r Campus Ufe te»...

The numbers keep increasing, as more and more projects have become available Students are able to visit the Caiter for Social Concerns to find more information on the dozens of different groups and projects iJready at Notre Dame, or to start their oui-i. Circle K, a national oi anization, is the biggest service club on campus, involving over 800 students. More than 20 service projects are available weekly lo Circle K members, giving students many options to serve around South Bend according to their schedules. Members do everything from playing bingo at a nursing home and serving at a food bank to writing letters to troops. Tlie area that has received the most student support overall has been tutoring. Notre Dame students spend their time tutoring at the Robinson Center in South Bend, the St. Patrick ' s Center, the juvenile detention fadlicy, and also right at Notre C)ame for their peers. Students also participate in many other smaller campus clubs, offering many Llifferent fomis of service. The Best Buddies program fosters close friendships between students and community- members, pairing students one on one v ith people of intellectual disability. Members meet with their Best Buddy once or twice a month to partake in evaits such as bowling or attending Notre Dame games and isits to campus. Many clubs raise money for different non-profit organizations or different drives. An example is The Op eration Smile Student Organization, which hosts many activities throughout the year to raise money to provide recc«istructive surgery to children worldwide A major service project that has beai a tradition at Notre Dame for many years is the seminar program. These seminars take place over fall, winter, and spring break, and also during the summer. Some of the most popular seminars during fall and spring break are the Appalachia seminars, which take students to sixteen differait sites in five states of the Appalachia region to work with nonprofit organizations of each area. Urban Plunge also involves many students during winter break. This is a two lay project available in over fifty sites across the country, exposing students to inner-city problems near their own home The Catholic traditicn of service can be seen throughout the Notre Dame campus and in the many ways students have chosen to serve all over the world. e Y TtKt,i A JJaMc CkI fciiphonx)re Vincent Au niturs -OJelfres- Robin.son at RCLC i utonng is one ot the more popular service acnWties for Notre Dame students.

These road trip rituals repeat themselves before almost every away game, beginning with the earliest mumiurings about scrouiiging for tickets and asking friends for beds, couches, or floor space for the evening. Notre Dame road games offer students the opportunity ' to leave South Bend and explore a new campus for the weekend. Some look forward to the chance to reunite with friends from home, wliile others enjoy bonding with their Notre Dame friends amongst interstates and service plazas. Others go just to see some great football being played. NX ' hatever their motivation, students are sure to make their presence known in the opposing team ' s stadium as they enthusiastically uphold Irish traditions. Doing pushups after Notre Dame touchdowns or perf omiing cheers even without the aid of the band, those students tn attendance let everyone know who they represent. This year, many studmts planned their fall break plans around the Notre Dame- Navy game at the Meadowlands. Taking advantage of the game ' s proximity to New York City, several students decided to stay and tour the Big Apple with their friends. Many also chose to visit nearby Philadelphia and the Jersey shore. Senior Nick Green, a friend and domr mate of fullback Josh Schmidt, says, " I love going on road trips widi my friends. It ' s a great rime and a great way to show our support for Josh. " Wliile many students were able to attend the Michigan State, Navy, and Tennessee games, fewer were able to travel to USC over the Thanksgiving holiday. Green, however, was there. " Instead of eggs, " he says, " we had turkey legs. " For those who cannot trek hack and forth across the country to follow the team, road games offer students a chance to watch the Irish on television from the comfort of domi rooms, aparmients, or sports bars. Senior Brendan Lynch hosted g ' ame watches for BYU and Michigan State at his apartment. He says, " If you can ' t make it to the game, it ' s always fun having people over to watch it on television. Plus, there is die added bonus of being able to sit down and have a cold drink and plenty to eat. " Coordinating schedules, renting RVs, stopping at wacky tourist attractions, and bein g surrounded by a sea of anything-but-green creates memories that will long be remembered. Senior Chris Villani sums up the motivation of students who hit the road for away games by saying, " For an Irish win, it ' s worth it. " e-Y UMiUfffi cCior ;LL.

But mtmy students who have walked around ctmipus on a Friday or Saturday night (or for many seniors perhaps a Monday or Tuesday night) know there are certain other echoes that exist anuind campus. . . the echoes of parries. On iuiy given weekend the campus quads are filled with the favorite tmies of tixiay ' s college students, from Bon Jovi to B.I.G. With windows open and speakers blaring music, students know where the parties are on any given night. Tlie majority of the music heard usually comes from right under the golden Dome and the residents of Sorin Hall. With famous spaces like the Otter Rtwm and turrets on the sides, Sorin is well-known for its parties due to the spaciousness its wide walls and tall ceilings allow. After furniture has iTeen moved into a generous neighbor ' s room, a Sorin domi rtxim becomes home to many curious part ' -goers. With every night being ladies ' night in Sorin, non -Sorin males will usually find a small cover charge for refreshments but always a hospitable environment. The ladies usually enjoy their stay tor the party activiries, including using the wide window sills to demonstrate their most recent daiice moves. Some of the more enticing aspects of parties for students are the themes niany ot them follow, bringing a higher level of excitement to them. Requiring attendees to dress according to a certain theme, students usually find die most interestiig and creative costvimes to try and be the best dressed. With themes ranging from Mafia, Pmips and Hoes, Catholic School Girls, Ghetto, and Hallo ween, students will find a wide variety of costume opportunities to show off at parties. Some themes even include decades, such as die 80 ' s, where the jxipular leg wamiers and scrunchies c _)me out in full swing. A popular 80 ' s party usually takes place ever ' year at the Turtle Creek apamnent complex off campus, where hundreds gather in celebration of everyone ' s favorite decade. Off -campus housing offers an easier place to ptirry, with tewer niles ;ind more rixim to move. Places like Lafayette, Turtle Oeek, GJlege Park, Casde Point, ;ind any house on the more popular streets like GirK ' , Notre Dame Avenue, iind St. Peter ' s Street are home to many parties.

P uilo by Anya Hershbergo Many Notre Dame students leave schtxil with incredible experiences and memories, hut what many students will cherish the most are the relationships created with the paiple they meet here. Many of these relationships are developed as early as fresl " uiian orientation, others may not fomi until junior year abroad, but what seems to he consistent is that these relationships last forever. The dorms on campus are the first place these relationships tend to develop. Being thrown into an environment with new and exciting challenges helps students find tilings in common that make the transition to college life easier. Many alums have said that the friends they made at Notre Dame are their best friends. John Lynch, alumnus of the class of 1969, said he still keeps in contact with his tnends from Notre D;mie. " We pick one fixitball game each year to come back for as sort of a reunion. Tlie stories we tell over dinner from our days at Notre Dame seem like they happened just yesterday. " hie would not have been able to make such close friends if it had not been for the domi lite mid the activities they did together, some of wliich are still in existence today. Besides the idways exciting activities of freshman oriaitation, the first true domi unity on campus shows itself at the year ' s first home fc»tball pep rally. As students gather in front of their dcxirs, wearing their newest domi shirts, they gather in celebration not only for the first home football game, but also for the opportunity to share the experience widi others. As a sea of Fisher green and Morrissey black " ' . flexrk to the pep rally raising chants against each other in rivalry or for the always present support of Notre Dame, it is a time for students to experience sometliing great. Tliis unity ran be seen during the pep rallies, as donn colors surround the Joyce Center in celebration of both domi and schixil unity. Other events also play a role in establishing a deeper connection betw- ' een clomi residents. Fisher residents pick one weekend each year in which tlie ' conduct a Roof Sit to raise money for a specified charity. Sitting in the cold for over 48 hours, the residents of Fisher have creatai a way to make charitable donations while building relatitinships with one ffliother at the smiie time. Tliese events and many odiers on campus have helped create some of the most memorable friendsliips for ni;uiy Notre Dame students. e Y E RtHPAM LrNoJ t . it Dorm Unity ■ ■■■ ■■■ m r mw ■ t-wyfcUMEMaHMBIJHHtflflWH MeniK-n- of the Z.ilim H;UI cliiiriot tcun [X»e fiir a quick picture hffore their race at the KeiHigh Qiiirii.

LaFortune also offers a computer cluster, Anthony Travel, and a billiards room in the basement to accommodate students ' needs. And if your hair is in need of a trim, you can stop in and get a quick cut in between classes. Regardless of your preference, it is likely that you will fmd sometl-iing that catches your eye or at least a familiar face if you stop in LaFortune.

The Notre Dame campus thrives off of international influences whether students are cognizant or not. From the exl-ubition of the latest transatlantic trends to the sharing of international traditions between students, Notre Dame is a community that embraces and celebrates a global perspective on life. At the nucleus of an international experience on campus is the dining hall. Both North and South dining hall provide a plethora of exotic delicacies to whet the palate, including but not limited to, couscous from North Africa, jerk tofu from Jamaica, tortilla soup from Mexico, and spicy sea nuggets from who biows where. Many of the exotic recipes dished up by the dining hall chefs are inspired by recipes submitted by students looking for a taste of home. Students are eager to share their culture and heritage. This school year, 952 international students were a part of the Notre Dame family, accounting for roughly 8.4 percent of the total student body. Tlie International Student Services and Activities (ISSA) Programs office offers 12 programs including a Language Exchange Partnership Program that partners English-speaking Notre Dame students with international students to foster mutually beneficial learning experiences. There are 13 international student organizations, including the Muslim Student Association, Japan Club, Brazil Club and the Russian Club. Student enthusiasm is also evident in the high quality perfomiances and liigh attendance at cultural shows such as Asian Allure, Fiestang Filipino and Latin Expression. Students often develop friendsliips over their cultural similarities and differences. Although there are abtuidant opportimities to soak in culture right on campus, Domers don ' t just wait around to experience new ways of thinking and living. More than 1 ,000 students participate in Study Abroad programs annually, in countries like Japan, Italy, Chile, Australia and Greece. In addition to the high percentage of juniors that go abroad to study, fresbnen through senior level students participate in the International Summer Service Learning Program tlmiugh die Center for Social Concerns. ISSLP opens the eyes of students to extreme poverty, the education gap, and raging epidemics in coimtries like the PHIippines, Haiti, Brazil and Ghana. " Working with adorable Filipino children last summer was absolutely amazing. I couldn ' t stop crying the day I had to say good-bye, " reflects Molly Savage, who worked in Manila at the Unang Hakbang Center for Street Children the summer of 2004. Students bring back important academic, spiritual, ;md cultural lessons from their experiences outside of the American bubble. For many, the Notre Dame experience is marked with a few, life-altering epiphanies. NX hether it takes watching a dramatic masterpiece by Federico Fellini for a class or tasting Viemamese beef ncxidle soup at the dining hall for the first rime, it should be realized that an education at Notre Dame is not just alvut being a sleepy, college student in a snow-cursed, Midwestern town, but alxxit being a member of a global community.

NX -iile the majority of students prefer to walk (with or without shoes), there are always new and more original transportation metlxxis that arise on campus every ye;ir. Some of the more rtxent, most [.xipular methocLs come in the fonii of motorizes! scmters that help students who seem to need quicker methods of getting to class. Another popular choice seems to be roUerblades; their versatility and ease of use make them attractive to many students. NX en late for class, students have no problem rolling right into DeBartolo with them on. Being able to pack a pair of sandals or shoes in a bag gives students the ability to get around campus quickly on their roUerblades but srill lcx_)k stylish in class. Although South Bend ' s fickle weather often plays a major role in a student ' s ability to travel across campus safely on whLX;ls, a bike seems to be the next best option to w;ilking. Usirig plastic bags to protect seats in adverse weather conciitions, students have discovered the best - and cheapest - way to have a bike on campus and kc ;p it in gtxxd condititm. Mmy, of course, also find Meijer ' s low prices on bikes enticing enough to purchase a ride for their four years in die Bend. With the schcTol offering to hold your bike in the stadium during the sub-zero weather in the winter, m;ui - students reap the benefits of having a bike during the fall ;uid spring at Notre D;ime. For off- campus students especially, bikes are useful not only for those who live in houses close to campus, but also for tho.se who want to shorten their ffip from the parking lot to DeBartolo each morning. Odier popular meditxls of transportation include skateboards, scooters, or even golf c;irts for those wlu) have suffered rcxent injuries.

P iot() hyjamy QmruJs Campue Life jgS S J the Night Away 3 Dorm dances have been a central part of the Notre Dame experience for students for many years. Dances were traditionally known on campus as SYRs, when a student ' s rcwmmate would arrange a date for him or her. Usually held within each dorm, dances were turned into all-day activities that made the experience that much more exciting for students — and their dates. Although they iire no longer held in the domis, the dances still provide a good time for studaiLs and dictate how their day will be spent preparing. One Morrissey student says, " Freshman year I had to wake up in tlic morning to help decorate our section for our dance that evening. We had decided to decorate our hall like a rropic;il isiimd, but the overall theme for the domi w;is ' Christmas aroimd the World, ' with each section being decorated like a different geographic kxation. Older students woke up and helped us decorate later in the afternoon. Once we were done we headed outside for some lunch. Our rcct( )r iiad decided to hold a pig roast for the residents of Morrissey and our dates, which were usualK- found tiirough the ' Dtig Btvik. ' There were stime good games on television that day so it worked out well to be able to ha e a little barbecue aiul watch sfxjrts uith even ' one in the donn. " Odu ' t than selecting a theme, one of the most importimt ;uui traditional parts of tlonii diinces is buying a gift. " I iiailn ' i Kuight an SYR gift yet sti 1 had to head out to Jo that where ever ' one usually goes . . . Meijer. Not wanting to put ttxi much thought into it, 1 i ought a board game for my date and headed back to the dorm to get ready. After getting dressed for the diuice we headed out to pick up our dates and bring them back do the donn for the dance. We all iiad a great time, ;Jthough the DJ they had hired could ha c been better. ' Living on a Prayer ' gets prettv ' old the third time around. " TTic pre-dance routine can be slightly more extensive for giris. Two seniors reminisce aKiut their days at Farley SYRs. " ' e would start the day uith a trip to Meijer or to the mall to pick up last-minute gifts and la.st-minute accessories for our last-minute dates. L ' nless we were really running late, this uas no grab-and-go mission. Our goal was to find the coolest and quirkiest gift possible for the leiist iimount of mone -. " Certainly, in;mv unusual S ' R gifts have beai givai throLigliout donn histor ' , ranging from bonsai trees to stuffed horses to honiemado ccx)kies. The F;irley girls continue, " Some girls went for hair appointments, while others just lined up waiting for showers in the donn. We made sure to hit the dining hall and lo-ad up on pasta. After dinner, the fashion shows would begin in roonis and hallways as girls raced through the dorm borrowing dresses, shoes, and jevvelrv. We would nish through last minute things like nail polish and finishing touches on hair ;ind makeup as dates begmi kncxking on dcxirs throughout the dorm, having totally overestimated liow long it would take us. " All of the preparation put in not only by studaiLs and their dates, but also by RA. ' s and d;ince ccmimissioners becomes apparent once students leave die dorms iind head out to their dance locations. Some d;inces are within waking distiutce, such as those in the Dome or in the LiFortune Bailnxim, while students must Kiard buses to head to sites such as Beacon Bowl and the College Ftxitball Hail of j-aine. Despite the new d;ince regulations and rules that the a(.lministration has enactal over the years, the SYR will long remiiin a wonderful Notre Dame tradition.

Tlie majority of Nil) students were varsity athletes in liigh .schtxil, and thc arrive at .sch(X)l an, ious to stay in peak condition or improve their fitness. Other students begin working out on a regular basis for the first time in college due to the e;isy accessibility of the gym and the dreaded [X)ssibiliry of gaiiiing the " FreslniiLUi 15. " Friends often embark on training regimens together. .Always having a spotter available ;ind hearing another person ' s motivation to get moving helps to keep gyms at the RcKk ;md Rolfs full. Senior Lee Gettler says, " The good thing about H itre Dame students is that most of them v ere fairly athletic at some |ioint in their pasts and thus have some sense of what they ;ire doing in the g ni. Nothing is worse than petiple taking up gym space while accomplishing virtually nothing. " While some chcxise the air-condirioned ax)lness of the builduigs, many other students opt to rollerblade, run around the lakes, or play basketball on outdcxjr courts. As the wetither turns cooler in late fall, the Rcx:k iind Rolfs inevitably fill to capacity. Students will wait patiently for their allottal time on the cardio machines or for a spot in a pick-up basketball game. " I think the gyms should definitely get more cardio eciuipment like treadniills because, between the Rock and Rolfs, they only have about ten total. They are always full, especially during the winter, " says senior Kathleen Curley. Despite the frantic pace inside the buildings, Notre Dame offers its students excellent facilities on bc th ends of campus. With the Rock at one end of South Quad and Rolfs serving North Quad students, lui one had to travel far for their exercise. Their accommodating, late-night hours are tailored to fit students ' busy schtxiules. For twenty-four hour fitness, many donns even have workout equipment in their basements. From the pixil aid the indixir track to the weight rtwm and the climbing wall, any student can find somethiiig to suit their fitness needs. Rolfs features billboards with health rips and workout suggestions to motivate exercisers. Classes are also offered, stmie providing a general cardio workoi-it ami others focused specifically on toning amis or abs. Wliether a student is practicing year-round for Btxjkstore Basketball iv just rr ing to acliieve a toned body for spring brccik, they can be sure that the gyms on campus can help them reach their goals.

P k ! lyy My iiciUaghfr Campus Life etvl Around (tampus Many of us have attended Catholic schools at some point in our lives, where we have been forced to wear uniforms and some have even grown accustomed to them. This tradition has been carried over to how the student body dresses at Notre Dame; there ' s obviously no official uniform, but the students here can be seen dressing up in different uniforms for various events and occasions, from football games and dorm dances to just dressing for class every day. While there is definitely some variatiai in everyday dress among the students here, there are some very popular styles that can always be seen around Ciimpus. Piilo shirts (both the brand and the style), khakis or jeans, and flip-flops are classic styles for hodi guys and girls, until it gets tcx) cold to go outside without a winter coat, hat, scarf and gloves, which are all that can be seen on students during the colder months. Dorm t-sliirts and Notre Dame hcxxied sweatshirts and sweatpants from the bookstore are also very noticeable around canpus. These become increasingly more popular during midtenn and finals weeks, when students spend more rime studying and less rime getting dressed. Outside of normal class atrire, there are plenty of events which require more specific kinds of uniforms throughout the year, one of die biggest being home football games. The uniform for a home football game consists of the color green; in its basic h )nn , this green comes in the fonn of " The Shirt " of that parricular year , but lots of students bnmch out with other green items of clothing to make up the " Sea of Green " . The pep rallies before every home game are another instance when uniforms ctui he seen in the t-shirts that the students in each donn wear in order to stand out as a group and to get pumped up for the gmne. Dimi dances, especially SYR ' s, are an txrcasion when all of the students in a dorm get dressed up together to fit the theme of the d;ince. Popular themes include Hawaiian and various decades, such as 70 ' s disco or the 80 ' s. Donn dmices give students a chiince to have fun dressing up in the most outragaius outfits they c;in find. Radier than being a burden or a hassle, as most students would consider their grade school or high school uniforms to be, the unifonns seai around Notre Dame come about as a result of die unity of the student body. They represent the togetherness and bond that students have with each other here, whether in their dorms widi dieir riiommates and friends, or with the enrire student Kxl ' in the student secritm of the football stadium. Students are proud to wear their Notre Dame uniforms. B Y AHHIU.

Anyone who has waited in line to register a QvRec team at Rolfs or who has read an entire " Irish Insider " in the Ohser ' er dedicated to the Interhall Foothdl championships can surely attest to this fact. After spending Saturdays cheering on the Irish in Notre Dame Stadium, students reunite around smaller fields near Stcpan Cinter and McGlinn to support the ir smaller domi communiries on Sundays. Practices and additional games on weeknights prepare the players for big games and the battle for playoff spots. While the men are outfitted in full pads and jerseys, the women don matching shirts and flags for their games. Ri -alries, howex ' er, are fierce in both the men ' s ;ind the women ' s leagues. This year, Keenan and Walsh triumphed over Knott and Cavanaugh for the men ' s and women ' s championships. Played in the stadium, tliis final game is the culmination of a challenging season of practices. In front of a large crowd of fans, Keenan defeated Knott 20-19 in iwertime, while Walsh beat Cavanaugh 20-7. Although dorm football games receive the most publicity, a wide variety of Lather sports are popular among Notre Dame ' s student body, the vast majority of whom played a varsity sport in high school. With options ranging from cross- country and basketball to softball and horseshoes, opportunities abound for dorm mates to come together and achieve a common goal. Even off-canipus students keep the interhall tradition alive. A spirited group of female seniors from various dorms pulled together an Off -Campus football team, showing their dedication to working hard and having fun on the field against their former halls. In addition to interhall sports between dorms, Co-Rec sports are offered through Rolfs. These co-ed activities provide another venue for students to participate in competitive athletics, stay in shape, and bond with friends, professors, rectors, and anyone with a Notre Dame ID card. Becoining part of creatively-named teams, the men and women of Notre Dame are able to play the sports they loved in high school and are given the opportunity to try new and unfamiliar ones. The most popular of these Co-Rec sports is arguably hroomball, a game played on the ice during November and December. Leagues fill quickly, and the fight to make the playoffs is intense. Other popular sports include soccer and basketball, while lesser-known ones such as inner tube water polo retain a dedicated following year after year. Co-Rec sports not only offer teams a chance to hone dieir skills together but also to win the coveted RecSports Champion tee-shirt at the end of the season. With a multitude of options available for students who don ' t wmit their athletic , competitive, and team iriented goals to fade av ay after high school, Notre Dame certainly proves itself worthy of its 1 status as an intramural-crared university. e-Y -tmAHUari c( o QJL. rntcrhall football is known throughout the country- as the only non-v;ir- sitv full-tackle collegiate football league.

Photo by Carolyn McOrady Bring the Noise Most pieople whci have visital South Bend for a Notre Dame football weekend agree that there are few, if any, places as full of life and excitement. For those who cannot attend, the game is broadcast on Saturdays and people from all over the nation can cheer on the Irish. However, to get the full experience, the Joyce Center on Friday night is a must stop for tmy Notre Dame fan. Students, ftms, players, and coaches join together in the cheers, songs, and speeches that comprise a Notre Dame Pep Rally. Though all are cheering for the same cause, piep rallies are also a time for each individual dorm to stand out in its own way. The student side of the crowd, which stands throughout the nJly, is a collection of visually distinct groups. Whether it ' s matching t-shirts, goofy visors that look like duck bills, a set of horns, or green togas, each hall creates a way to stiind out and distinguish itself. The dorms each use their own cheers and moves to add to the noise and energy in the arena. Every h;ill gets a turn in tiie spotlight vshen the ' are allowed to host a rally and take the flcxir seats putting them right in front of all the action. Though the cheering students are a big part of the fun, several groups add entertainment for everyone to enpy. Tlic Pom Stjuad, cheerleaders, and marching band always attend to pump up the crowd mid prepare them for the excitement of the Notre Dame football weekend. With r ular tunes such as the Viciorv March, Rakes, and the 1812 Overture, the band initiates a lot of the dances and cheers that are heard throughout the arena. In the usual Notre Dmie tradition, the huul ends with the Alvui Mater that turns the crowd into one united, swaying body. Ever ' school has pep rallies to pump up their fans ;ind teams. Rut not all schools have famous, distinguished guests at almost every one. Regis Philbin, Hank Atiron, Dick Vitale, ;mi.l Qirson Daly are just a few celebrity speakers who have made the trip to South Bend to share some encouraging words and cheer on the Irish. Some ot these speakers have direct connections unth the University, hut many just share a respect ;ind excitement for the schexJ and the team.

PItoto by Bdly Uallaglurr Additions The welding of steel, cranes swinging Dverhead, sciittolding and caution tape . . . after three years, the sights ;uid sounds of new construction on c;inipus hardly seemed to fa:e students; hut they were tlaily reminders of the university ' s state of growdi. Wliile students and professors continued to expand their knowledge in academic endeavors, the administration, representatives of the Board cil Trusiee.s, the Office of the University Architect, contractors, and construction teams were working towards a different type ot exprnision: planning and building the future campus of the l ' niversit ' of Notre Dame. DecemlxT of 2004 saw the completion of the new Hammes Mowbray Hall at the north end of CiUiipus. The new facility included specialized spaces for Notre Dame Security Police, as well ;is a Post Office facility complete with large workplaces and k)bbies, and support spaces for sorting mail. In addition to the completion of the Securit ' and Post Office Building, there were numerous other construction projects under way. In a joint effort between the Indiana LJniversity Medical Schtxil and the University of Notre Dame, construction on the Ernestine Raclin and O.C. Gmiiichael Jr. Center for Medical Education was begun just south of campus on Angela Boulevard. Tliis building will be the new home for the South Bend Center for Medical Education ;ind Notre Dame ' s W.M. Keck Center for Transgene Research. The building will mclude a 250 seat auditorium, classrcK:)ms, lounges, and laboratories. By far, the largest academic project was the 201,782 square fcxit Jordan Hall cif Science on juniper Road. This new science building promised to be an improvement on the existing facilities, as well as add functional space that would allow the expansion of the departments. TTie program incluciai new Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, and Physics lab spaces, a 250-seat lecture hall, a multi-visualization room, an observatory, herbarium, and greenhouse. Its completion is planned for the fall of 2006. Tlie luiiversity was also looking to improve its facilities for varsity athletes with the construction of the Guglielmino Family Athletics Center. This addition to Loftus Athletic Center included sptwts medicine facilities, equipmait storage, and team meeting spaces. However, the true gem of the building was the 25,000 square ftxit stateof-the-art strength and conditioning center, a welcome advancement for the varsit ' athletes. Each of these projects was a part of the University ' of Notre Dame Campus Plan, which was instituted as a long-tenn design proposal three years ago. Tlie plan embodies several objectives including avoiding sprawl and maintaining a pedestrian en ironment, preserving the liistoric center of campus, ensuring a greeiibelt of natural space, and strengthening the primary approaches. Specific building projects that are planned include the closure of Juniper Road and the extension of the campus limit to Ivy Road, the incorporation of iiew gates on Notre Danie Avenue at the crossings of Angela Boulevard and Holy Cross Drive, a major extension to the Law Schtxil, the completion of Debartolo Quad, a new Notre Diime Inn, pLms tor three new residence halls, iuid a mixed use neighborhocxi Village development just soudi of campus on Angela. While these changes may alter the campus in unexpected ways, the Notre Dame community can rest easy knowing that the University has carefully planned to protect the integrit ' and beaut ' of the existing campus while accommcxlaring for its growth in a m;inner that will enhance the campus that is already so well known and loved. Et N lcam ( LIaea Campus Ufa The Beauty of Caihpus From the first time you arrive on Notre Dame ' s campus, you do not necessarily think about the distinguished academics, the spirited student body, or even the storied football program. Although all of those aspects of Notre Dame are ever-present, when you first step foot on campus, the first thought that comes to mind is how beautiful it is. From the magnificent stretches of South Quad to the wooded area of (Jod Quad, Notre Dame is in the running for the most beautiful campus in the world. Even diough the landscape is breathtaking, Notre Dame would not be what it is if it weren ' t for the people in ' olved in making the school such a great place. Whether students are walking to class in DeBartolo or taking a leisurely hike around the lakes, die beauty of c;impus is enhanced when you see a friendly face. In the earl - morning when the sun is rising above the buildings, it is easy to notice how l-ieauriful everything is. In addition, it ' s easy to become caught up in the spirit of football weekends and the campus ' gorgeous surroundings. The beauty of this campus is prevalent through any situation. NMiile heading to class, a leaf ma ' drift into ' our path as you w;dk lx;neatii the canopy of trees (in K4ain Quad, mid, just for a second, ' ou Icxik up into the trees tind see the myriad of colors that has burst into the foliage. The Grotto is knoun for tlic beauty it brings to campus as a guiding light by the lakes and home to many prayers, es[-iecially during exam week and fixitball weekaids. Wliai you ' re walking back ti) your domi at midnight, it ' s easy to catch the beams shooting off of the golden dome, guiding you hack and making you feel safe. Even on a fixitliail weekend, when students and fans alike are cheering on the Insh, tiiere ' s notlimg like the first time you wiJk into Notre Dame Stadium; it simply takes your breath away, imd then you proceed to cheer the Irish on to icton ' . As niiuiy studaits on campus can recite from the mo ic Ki(J;v, " This is the most beautiful sight these eyes have ever seen. " In an - of these cases, the golden dome may just catch your e ' e as it pecks through the foliage, ;uid it just feels like home, because " We are ND. " Quite simply, there is no place like Notre Dame, whether it ' s the campus itself or the paiple who bnng life to it. The view of Notre Dame Stadium from under " Touchdown Je u.s " reminds students of the glor - and tradition present on campus.

South Bend may not Ix ' the most easily accessible, student-friendly, or exciting collie town, but it still otters a plethora ot entertaining offompus activities. Movies theaters and bowling alleys are popular choices for students looking for a way to pass their time. Beactin Bowl near the airport and Strikes and Spares on Houglas Road oftm offer gtxx.1 deals ;md provide students with ;in opportunity ti) take part in one of the tew athletic acrivities that cimnot be done on campus. It ' s difficult not to encounter friends or other Notre Dame students at the movie theaters, especially on opening days of big films. The less expensive matinee shows are a fun way t(3 spend a homework -free afternoon. For dining out, most students head immediately to the Grape Road ;uui Main Street area. With most of the popular chain restaurants having branches on one of the streets, plenty of options abound for students who need a break from the dining halls. Because of the large number of restaurants, Domers won ' t have to wm long for a table anywhere — unless it ' s a football weekend! Qoser to campus, places like Lula ' s Cafe offer great salads, sandwiches, and coffee in a tun environment. Lula ' s, in addition to places like Panera, Banies and Noble, ;md B(_ rders, are also popular saidy spots for students who are ready for a break trom the library. Downtown South Bend is home to the Morris Performing Arts Center and a variety of restaurants. To mix up their routine and try something other than heading to Grape Road, students can sample fudges and sundaes at the South Bend Chocolate Cafe, enjoy an Italian dinner at The Vine, or splurge for a goumiet meal at Tippecanoe. The College Football Hall of Fame is an interesting ;ind informative way to spend an afternoon. Some adventurous Domers take a more unconventional route and chcxise activities such as white-water canoeing, an activity which many students do not even know is available downtown. The South Bend Silverhawks are also a fun treat, especially on " Dollar Mondays " when admission and hot dogs are only one dollar each. Many students also drive or hop on board the South Shore Railroad to travel the nitiery miles to Chicago on weekends to enjoy concerts, shows, and a new batch of restaurants. Shopping in a big city promises a wider selection of stores than the University Park Mall can offer. Thcise lucky enough to score Cubs tickets can catch a game at Wrigley Field. Many student clubs offer bus trips to Chicago to see exhibits or events that pertain to their interests. Students will often travel several hours to nearby towns and states to catch their favorite bands in concert. With several colleges and concert venues close by in Indiana, Micliigan, and Illinois, students can explore a new state, take part in a fun road trip, and see bands and artists diat aren ' t visiting South Bend. Students lucky enough to have a car — or a friend with a car — can take their pick from this diverse list of activities for a quick break trom campus life. Et 6;jamn m cC[0t QJL.

Festivities Although the gold helmets don ' t emerge onto the field until Saturday afternoon, those who travel from near and far to cheer on die Irish begin their game traditions Iraig before Idckoff. For many smdents, football weekend celebrations b in the instant their Friday classes aid. Enthusiastic alumni often b in just as early, tailgating outside the Joyce Center before and after pep rallies on Fridays. The true pre-game fun, however, b ins bright iind eariy on Saturday morning. The Notre Dame Band serves as lui ; lanii ckx;k for sleeping suidents as it marches across campus playing its traditional songs. Once awake and clad in their green " We are ND " shirts, students enter a quad teeming with parents, alumni, ;ind f;ins. Tliose who linger in the domi often meet former residents who once lived in their rix)ms. Tliroughout c;unpus, past tind future generations of Domers mingle. Alumni marvel at the new construction on campus, and children dressed in jerseys dream of playing football for the Irish. The smell of burgers and hot dogs pervades the air as suidents behind concession stands attempt to raise mone ' for their organisations. Outside Zahm Hall, boys in pastels, plaids, and knickerbockers play crcxjuet as confused onlookers stare in amazement. The Grotto glows with the light of candles and the anmh of its visitors. With each passing game, diose on the quad add layer after layer of sweatshirts and jackets, trnd the leaves on the trees transfomi from green to vibrant orange before falling to the ground. Despite all of the anticipation ;ind merriment outside on the quad, cK ually exciting events cxcur indtxirs. The Qillege of Arts and Letters offers tin dtemative game pl;ui for football mornings with its Saturday Scholar Series. Topics range from chiklren and marital conflict to T u; Dci ' ma i ' jide, uith each panel featuring several professors lecturing tmd leading discussion. While many fans attend diese discussions, others head directly to the bookstore and its long lines. Others fomi a different line, ji lining the crowds of people outlining the path the band and checde-aders follow to the stadium after a concert on tlie Bond HtJl steps. Even v ith all of these options available, tailgating still reigns as the mtvst popular Siiturday moniing e ' cnt. Studenls, alumni, ;ind f;ms take over every available parking lot, set up their grills, stock their coolers, hang their idenrifying flags, ;uid blast their music. RV ' s, limos, SUX ' s, and aparnnent.s all welcome anyone sporting Irish gear. Old friends are ,gi ai the chance to reunite and relive their colle. e diiys, and current students create the memories that will draw them hack to Notre L " )ame long into the future.

The rest of the hand spans every field of stud ' . In order to join the Band of the Rghting Irish, each member must go through a rigorous audition prtxress. Potential band members arrive on campus the week before school starts to leam the style and traditions of the band. Upfierdassmen serve as the priman- instructors to new the members. The final dav of the process concludes with a fomial audition in front of all the directors before final cuts arc made. The final list for the band is posted the following morning with the first official practice of the year starting that aftenuxm. Members of the Kuid put in countless hours during the fall semester to prtxJuce a different half time show for each home game. Tlie band practices everyday and dedicates aitire fcxithall Saturdays to produce entertaining performances for faithful Irish fans in the stands. It also helps to lead the students and fans in cheers during the game. The band gets to travel to some away games and accompanies the team to bowl games as well. From the Concert on the Steps to the Hike Step to the Irish Guard to Notre Dame X ' icton ' March, the band is filled with tradition. Each section within the hand has its own traditions as well.

" The club is able to tantriHv bring a new house into the South Bend community ' ever ' single year, and promises to continue this legacy for years into the future. Habitat for Hunumir ' is an international organiration with a focus on providing low-income families the opporttinit - to ha ' e a place diat die ' am ciJi home. This program does not gi e these hou.ses for free, radier partner families finance die houses tlirough interest-free loans. The Blitz Build over F;J1 Break ever ' year is the time when a majtirit - of die house is completed. During the course of the week 40 students build the walls, rcxif, and put up siding. Tliis e ' ent takes incredible ccxirdination, and Notre Dcime alum Tom Gimpbell 74 gaierously gives his rime to ensure that the house is completed according to the liighest st;indards. Beyond tlie physical building ot the htiuses, Notre Dame Habitat f(ir Hummiir ' .shares a Kmd with the partner family. A sepiarate committei.- ctxirdinates acrivities between tlu ' family and the Notre Dmne students. Events include pumpkin picking, Qiristmas dinners, and Notre Dame sports games. Tliis special Kind helps Kith the family ;ind the studeiits to develop a stronger sense of purpose, and ultimatelv makes the dedicarion of the hoase a momaitous event. Building a house every year in Soudi Bend requires strong financial suppon. With the cost ot a 1 labitat house listal at $60,000 for the rriiUerials, Notre Dame Habitat tor Hum;inir - faces a signiticiuit challenge.

We perfomi around ciimpus at a variet ' of events as well as in the South Bend community. We started tliis year uith a bang, getting the faixs iind student body into the Irish spirit at the Stanford Pep Rally. For this large- scale perfomiance, we incoqxrated over thirty- dancers returning from last year and even some newcomers to the club. Tile Irish Dance Team also pertomis at various other funcrions throughout the year including the Irish-. iierican Tap Class ' s Recital at tlie end of the semester, the Welsh F;miih- Dance Show, the Notre Dame Basketball Half time shows, and Larin Expressions. Nat urally, the strength of a team comes from its members, and ours bring a lot to the dance floor. Often we do technique work during r ularh ' scheduled practices, but we are most often choreographing, learning, or rehearsiiig routines for our next performance. This is true of ever ' member ' s experience, from these who v Tn world competitions to diose who have ne ' er taken a single dance class, ' et no one falters in their willingness to learn new steps on the sp»t, contribute creative ideas, or attend additional practices.

Some pc iple throw tixithalls, others play catch uidi baseballs, but now Notre Dcune students are Hurling! Hurling is a hrilliaiit game similar in many ways to lacrosse and field hockey. It is played widi a curved ash stick, the hurley, ;uid a small leather ball, the sliothar. Tlie game tiikes place on a large field or " pitch " that measures approxiiTuitely 150 yards long and 100 yards wide. H-shaped goals lie at eidier end of the field. Fifteen players on each te;im cany hurleys which arable them to tire the sliothar from player to player. JJuRuNc; Club» lo score, a player may .stnke the b;ill over the crossbar for one point, or past the goalkcv|XT tor tlrrcxr [Xiints. 1 he spew! and agility neeeleel to play the game comes in inoving the ball up the field. Players can strike the sliothar on the ground or in die air. The sliothar can also Ix- movcxl up die [liich by kicking it , passing it with the hand or by bakuicing it on the liurle ' mid sprinting up the field. Hurling is a truly ancient sport. In fact, the legendary Gaelic warrior Cu Chukiinn was considered an expert hurler. Mytlis such as these reveal a liuding histor - that is thous;uids of years old ;ind demonstrate tlic import;uice of the sport in Irish tradition. Li recent centuries, hurling has enjoyed a revival juxtaposed with the bcwm in Irish culture and nationalism that occurred in the late 19th century. Spurring from Irish opposition to British rule, a group of Irish nationalists established an organization for Irish athletes in 1884. by Lort a WUv ' t ' e. Ihus tlie Lraelic Athleric Association (GAA) was organized. To this day, it remains the governing lx)d of hurling in Ireland. llie Notre Dame hurling club wiis founded by Gerry Quinn, a native 1)1 Waterford, Ireland. Quinn simply couldn ' t attend Notre Dame without placing huding so he put his energy into establishing the club. Tlie N[ ) Hurling club is now in its third year luid Kiasts over thirty memliers. Students have taken to hurling with huge enthusiasm. Tlie club is open to btith men ;uid women who want to learn its fast ;md skillful techniques. For a university that is home to the ' Fighting Irish ' , it scx ' nis appropriate that the students of Notre Dame have embraced Ireland ' s national sport, and established the first collegiate hurling club in the United States.

You may be correct, but it ' s notliing to be worried about. For over thirty years, there has been a solution for students wishing to enjoy the winter weather in a competitive and slightly above-sea- level kind of way - the Notre Dame Ski Team. Beginning ;ifter Christmas break, tryouts are held at the nearby Swiss Valley Ski Resort to narrow the team down to twelve men and twelve women from Noire Dame and Saint Mary ' s. They will then .spend the following weeks in January and part of February competing in Michigan against other colleges in the United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association (USCSA). Some of these colleges include Michigan State and Le.ivv»Wue.Ule-r The Ohio State University. Over 1 50 colleges across the nation compete in races governed by the USCSA. These weekend races lead up to the Regional ski race and then culminate with Nationals in March. The USCSA is the only collegiate- level national sports association that has competitions between schools v ith varying affiliations. At ;my given race, the Irish team caii compete against other club and varsity team, Division I, II or III schtx)ls, junior colleges or other fully funded programs. The USCSA awards national championships in alpine skiing, cross- country skiing and snowboarding. Notre Dame iind Saint Mary ' s ski team participates in alpine races where they compete in Kith the slalom LUid giant slalom events. Five racers from each team battle it out on the slopes, ;md the top three team perfomiances are calculated into the overall team score. Recently the team has had their fair share of success. Tlie women ' s team has excelled in the past few seasons, qualifying one individual last year for Nationals and the entire squad four years ago. The mai ' s team is also rapidly improving and showing its fair share of talent. Despite having to coach themselves and trying to stay t)ne step ahead of the Midwest comperition, the team maintains a relaxed attitude. Tliey like to stay ftx:used on other importimt things as well, such as producing trend - team sliirts oftai seen floating around campus.

The plane lands, the passports are checked, iind the luggage is found. And thus, the cultural immersion begins. While it is basically a long and continuous school related field trip, your semester abroad is a growth e. perience, in which one learns t)utside of the classroom as well, walking the streets of a foreign country, either dodging motorini in Rome or trying to remember to look the opposite way before crossing the streets of London. It is a year of learning how to master and decipher the intricate systems of public transportations, of dealing with rude waiters and waitresses, who won ' t let you practice the language you arduously studied for two semesters prior to your jurival, a year of traveling to places you once dreamed of, and a semester of long lasting friendships, with whom you gladly celebrated the fact you only had to be 18 to visit the neighboring bars, pubs iind clubs as often as it was possible. It ' s a semester of hands in learning, where you absorb so much infomiation without even realizing it, just dealing witli paiple on the streets, and walking among the alleys and avenues of cities that are thousands of years old, where battles were won, dogmas were established, and revolutions were orgaiiized. Cities where, nonetheless, your bag or camera can be stolen, where the infamous flying rats that plague them (1 am referring to pigeons of course) might try to snatch saiidwiches from your hand or drop a little unexpected present, and of course, cities that are invaded by hordes ot loud tourists, whether it lie clear blue skies, or pouring rain. Even you find yourself traveling with a camera or two, taking pictures here and there, wherever Easyjet, RyaiiAir, or your Eurail pass totik ' ou during Tlianksgiving, Clirismias or Spring Break. It ' s a year of traveling to different countries. Some stay in cities for days or weeks, others enjoy visiting two or tliree a day, trying to cover as much territory as pxissible, and hopefully leaving some mark behind that proves that you were there. You will find yourself booking hostels (each one different and " charming " in its own way), rolling or sliding down the slopes while skiing, walking around Christmas Markets in Austria and Gennany sipping Gluehwein, or trying to figure out the tram system in order to get to the airport or train station on rime. It ' s a semester of memories and moments, good and bad, that you will never forget, and experiences you will cherish for the rest of your life. Satisfied with all you ' ve learned, you Kiard the plane, sit hack and relax, but once the doors are shut, it hits you: you ' re saying vod b « to st) many things you came to love in the city you li -al in, the place you callal home for tour months, and of course, the crowded living quarters that were anything but private, bv GiullGnuo J.

Training Co iPi We see them every day across campus: raising the flag on South Quad, marching in unifomi, presenting the national colors at the football games. But who are these men ;md women of ROTC? Wliat sets them apart from the average Notre Dame student? And why do they choose to serve? Tlie Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTQ of Notre Dame has three branches: Army, Navy, and Air Force. TTie majority of these students are scholarship winners who applied for ROTC positions at Notre Dame in addition to applying for admission to the university. Some are prior service or National Guard memlx-rs who were granted slots in the program. Qidets and midsliipmen from all three branches participate in the same kind of everyday programs and activities that " civilian " students do; however, they are also afforded the unique opportunity to become involved in activities and classes that other students are not. But what about life after Notre Dame? ROTC students look forward to positions as commissioned officers in their branches, immediately outranking all enlisted personnel. But in the meantime, despite the huge commitment and all the hard work, they ' re just enjoying their time at Notre Dame. Says sophomore Army Cadet Peter DeMoss of his ROTC experience, " I really love it, I ' m really glad I ' m doing it, and I wish more people would sign up, because, now more than ever, America needs the best and brightest young mai and women to serve their country.

Students s pread themselves all over campus, trying to find that perfect place to plow through Plato, or meticulously complete Chem homework. Each student has a favorite place to go; some fiercely defend their privacy in their respective locations, others welcome study groups or any possible passers-by. Certain locations, too, are favored by certain demographics: North Quad-ers tend to frequent LaFortune or Hesburgh Library; those from South Quad often prefer the pro.ximity (and free refreshments) of Coleman-Morse Center. During a busy class day. students who are pressed for time will study in an empty room of DeBartolo between classes, or at one of the many cafes across campus, including Waddicks in O ' Shaughnessy. the Commons in Mendoza, and in Decio. With the removal of many dorm study lounges into living spaces throughout campus, students are extending their studying habits further and further across campus. Students must take advantage of each secluded location available, not excluding the great outdoors. On a nice day, at any given time, one will see students lounging on the quad, possibly under a tree or on a bench, cramming for that impending Bio test. Finding that perfect place to work on homework is an essential quest for Domers Whether they study at the Library or LaFortune, O ' Shag or the Co-Mo, or even in their warm, cozy donn rooms, the Irish take academic achievement seriously and will go wherever the road may lead them on their endless quest foi knowledge.

Many of our students take a couple hours out oi their schedule to tutor the same student nvo days out ot the week. Tlie students ' ages range from eight to eighteen. One of our studaits, a Howard Hall freshman, NaKya Reeves said that when she heard about the low rate of graduating studaits from die Soudi Bend area and the low percentage of kids who can read, she knew that she had to help.

Even sophomores clui become TAs, arid hold their own office hours and review sessions to assist others in test preparation. Student athletes are provided with tutors as well. Since these people spend so much of their time practicing, training, or traveling to away games, they occasionally need a litde extra help stud ing tor diose importimt tests. Tlie Learning Resource Center also provides extra assistance in n any ways. Students can take their assignments to die writing center to get a grasp on what else they need to do to perfect their papers b ha ing an upperclassman constructively critique them. The Learning Resource Center also holds weekly homework help sessions for classes with iTLiny sections, such as calculus.

P ioto iry KatTDU Straiu o- N:,ademce mis m Pm Being an international student will always be a different experience, wherever you choose to go. Choosing to attend Notre Dame, however, is more than just about having a stamp on your passport. It adds an extra spice to an already colorful and dynamic college experience. Not only are you exposed to the American way of Hfe, but you are also immersed into the very cultures and traditions that are unique to this university. Living halfway across the world dcxs not seem as difficult ;rs you might expect because of the great sense of family within the Notre Dame community. Somehow, despite how much you stand out in the crowd, you feel as though you were me;int to be a part of this university. Your domi liecomes a little piece of the country that allows you to comfortably c;Jl it your home away from home. Your hallmates and friends welcome you and celebrate all the idiosyncrasies that come with you. You may even find yourself feeling " Domesick " for Notre Dame when you travel across the seas to back home. Your professors and mentors appreciate the diverse background and perspective you bring to class. Various service iriented events and projects grant ' ou the opportunity of getting acquainted with the rest of American society, including the underrepresented. You may need your roommate to give you a personal comment;iry on the mechanics of college football, but you need no explanation of the ethnusiasm and excitement ot the average Domer when cheering ;md doing the Irish jig. Wliile fixitball is a huge part of Domer culture, being surrounded by Americans is a transition ;is well. At the same time as you immerse yourself into this new culture, you are still able to remember and enjoy your own culture through the many varied multicultural programs, activities, and organizations. Nowhere else but Notre Dame will you find a place that fills your collie life with such rich memories that you leave not just as a student of your major but as a student ot the world.

Tliese sixty spots are evenly divided for those majoring inside the GiUeges of Science or Arts and Letters. The Honors Program takes up most of the freshman year with distinctive versions of traditional University requirements. Tliese distinctive classes continue during btith sophomore imd junior year, and finally culminate seriior year with a final seminar. However, students spend most of their senior year developing and writing their capstone project. Mentored by a member of the faculty, they prepare their project in a field in which they have done particular research, research that for science students has often begun a couple of years earlier. However, the Honors Program does not exist merely in the classrcxim. Another main f cx:us of the program is to bring students into intellectual discussion with faculty, whether in the collcxjuies each semester or in the Program ' s lounge. Although the Honors Program can bring additional strain to a student ' s daily life, most honors students do not seem to mind. Nearly all that join the program remain in it for their entire four years at Notre Dame, working toward what the Program web site calls " bridging the ' two cultures ' of science aiid the humanities.

Qie aspect of freshinan year that is unique to Notre Dame is the mandatory swimming test and physical education component. Students enroll in a variety ' of PE rotations, such as yoga, Litin dance, golt, Mid fencing, as well as participating in Qintemporary Topics, a ttt ' o-rotarion course that ftxuses on diversity, exercise, and nutrition. These courses provide students with ample opportunities to leam cost-free new skills that they may have always wanted to leam but never got the chance. It ' s a little ovenvhelming taking the first step into the bookstore, especially when the cashier reads a $600 bill for thousands of pages of reading. First Year of Studies tries to make this workload adjustment easier. Each studait is assigned to a faculty, peer, and academic advisor so that they have experienced mentors to talk to about their schedule and getting used to college life. Many professors encourage students to go to the writing center to perfect their writing skills. In addition to tutors who are available for anyone who needs them, the Learning Resource Center has weekly homew(_irk help sessions for that tough calculus course. Despite the abundance of meetings and obligations, FYS does make the adjustment to Notre Dame easier for our newest family members. b • ElixibetK Micrenfeld rjTf A ■ mwsi A roiip ul O ' Neill lrL llnLUl rc islcr wilh the Jomi.

Not only do these students learn accounting principles and investment strategies from each other, but they build friendships that transcend beyond the classroom. These friendships help make the group meetings feel more like voluntary fun and a Htde less like mandatory work. There is no greater feeling than to celebrate with the people with whom you have been working tirelessly for the past few weeks. The business school has earned high marks from a number of different sources. Publications like BushiessWeek, U.S. Neivs and World Report , and tlie Wall Street jounral consistently rank Mendoza in the top 30 best business schtx)ls iii the country. Specifically, Notre Dame is the top ranked school for businesses recruiting accounting majors. BusinessWeek ranks Notre Dame ' s Finance deparmient in the top five in the country ' . In addition to lieing one of the best programs for each major, Mendoza goes above and beyond the basic requirements. In rimes of a corrupt business world, our business school prides itself on its top notch ethics program. All students are required to take a course in business ethics, but it does not end there. Ethics and fair business pracrices are daily topics of conversation in any class. Notre Dame makes sure that its students are among the most prepared for the " real world " at the end of their four years. h Moiixi Macldcn ■ m 5ophomorei Turn Mulcronc and Gaif ne c Jiirtlim discuss tlieir assignment during a lull m class.

The School of Architecture has set up a new honor each fall and spring semester: the Special Gimmendation Honor. This is awarded to the projects with the highest quality design and enhancements by each studio ' s professor. One unique aspect about the architecture program is that every junior is required to spend the year studying in Rome. TTie program is near to V azz3, Navona, as well as the home of the Pantheon, and the students reside in the Lunetta Hotel in Kaz a dei Fiori. Classic architecture is stressed, and students take four courses per semester. Throughout the year, the students visit various parts of Italy, such as Tuscany, Sicily, and the Veneto, with time to visit historic sites, sketch, and sightsee.

Johraiy was in most respects a gtxxl boy: he respected his elders, he ate his vegetables, and he brushed and flossed at least twice a day. Johnny, though, had a Htde problem: he was never ready to go to bed when his parents would send him up. Every night when his parents sent him to bed, Johnny would kick and scream; " 1 don ' t want to go to bed! I ' m not sleepy I " he would shout over and over. One day, Johnny ' s mother sat him down and explained that news of liis behavior was starting to spread; if he didn ' t start behaving at night, and going to bed like a g(xxl little boy, he would get a visit from the Sandman. " I ' m not afraid of the S;indman! " Johnny told his mother. " I don ' t have to go to bed if I ' m not tired. " Johnny ' s mother sighed, but let the issue go. There was no getting through to this little recreant- in-training. The next night, Jolinny tlirew his standard fit at bedtime and was lying in Ix ' d thinking of all the things he could be doing instead of sleeping. All of a sudden, there came a tapping on his window. He got up, Luidid the latch, iind then jumped back as a gaily bedecked man jumped in over the sill. " Do you know who I am, Johnny? I am the Sandman! " Johnny stared at liim mutely. " You don ' t like going to sleep, do you, Jolinny? " Johnny shcwk his head. " Don ' t you wish you never had to go to bed again? Think of all the fun things you could do if you didn ' t have to waste rime sleeping! " Tliis time Jolinny nodded his head vigorously, still not speaking. " Would you like me to make it so you never need to go to bed again, Johnny? " the Sandman asked. Jolinny jumped up and down and clapped his h;inds. " Oh, yes, please! TTiat would be wonderful! " Tlie Sandman pLillcd a funny-kx)ldng stick out of liis pocket. Johnny jumped back when he saw that it had two snakes twined around it, but the Sandman just chuckled and said, " Don ' t worry, Jolinny. It will do you no harm. " Then he tapped Jolinny twice on the head with it, and said, " Sleep. " In the moniing, Johnny thought it had all been a dream. If he really had gotten a visit from the Sandman, and he really had promised to make it so he ' d never sleep again, then why had he slept through the night? Johnny soon forgot all about his strange " dream, " and as the years passed, he came to realize that sleeping was good, and was no longer upset when it was time for bed. Then he turned 18, and went off t o collie. Tlie first day of Johnny ' s Gen. Chem. class, he showed up early, so he could get a seat in front. When the professor walked in, Jolinny felt a niggling sense of deja vu, but quickly dismissed it as class got underway. At the end of class, when all of the little Science majors now knew what was in store for them in the next tour years (liint: not sleep), Johnny stopped to introduce himself to his professor.

Wliile Notre Dame does not offer an eduaititin major, Notre Dame students with an interest in eduaition as part of their degree or as an iKcupation have recourse to satisfy their curicKity. They can enroll in the Education, Schooling and Society minor, or if they wish to delve deeper into education, they can attend classes at St. Mary ' s College. Through the exchange process, smdents can obtain a St. Mary ' s education major and complete the other half of a double major at Notre Dame. The St. MaT ' ' s education program seeks to provide students with the maximum amount of e,xperience, requiring students to spend five semesters observing and teaching in local schools, leading towards eventual state certification. After commencement, Notre Dame graduates can pursue education further through service programs such as Teach for America and ACE (Alliance for Catholic Education). Teach for America selects graduates for two years of volunteer teaching in either impoverished urban or rural areas across the country. Participants in this program aim to achieve equality in education h ' helping children bekiw national standards catch up to those children in more prreperous districts. The ACE program sends graduates to teach for tw-o years in disadvantaged Catholic schools in the southern half of the United States. Between academic years, ACE teachers participate in eight weeks of instruction to further assist them in their classrooms and alsci to prepare them to receive their master ' s d ee in education, which Notre Dame awards to graduates of both programs. W rd e both programs take graduates of any major, they desire that applicants are passionate about teaching and have the determination to face any challenges that teaching could present. This preference is not without reason, as a teacher ' s passion and determination are often contagious to those students whom they ser ' e, no matter to which socioeconomic class they belong. b - Ellen VogliiGd,GC Academlce Notre Dame saidents know that finding a job after graduation is not a guarantee. That is why Notre Dame ' s Career Center is so popular among Domers. Not only does the Career Center offer guidance to any indecisive student and inform him or her about opportunities for employment, but the Career Center hosts many workshops, fairs, and open houses to guide students in their preparation for the real world. The center offers assistance in finding internships and jobs in most any city, including Chicago, Boston, New York, and Washington, D.C. Advisers aid students with the alumni network, linking them with Notre Dame graduates in positions in their hometowns so that they can find summer internships or per manent jobs after they graduate. Employer presentations, such as Liz Claiborne and Humana, are advertised on the Career Center ' s website. The Career Center helps students set up interviews with top corporations, as well as relaying deadlines for applications. Students are given support and taught how to create an effective resume, do well in an interview, and be prepared for the requirements of businesses. Career nights give students a chance to listen to someone who has a job in their desired field. With the preparation necessary and the guidance of the Career Center, Notie Dame graduates have a much easier time securing a job after graduation. hy ElisabetK Mlereiifelxl This ixilitical sciaice major lcx)ks over pam- phlcB at a career night.

Phnin l-ry Anya Herdtlvrgcr Oueet 3peskere r Vli IT R While guest speakers all desire to he ahle to explain their position in detail, the ' also hope to attract those who will expound upon or refute their reasoning. Tliey hope to encounter an equally enthusiastic and well-informed assemhly that can contrihute Cii the most producri ' e dialogue, sparking new questions and ohser ations previously unconsidered hy the speaker. These encounters also do credit to tlie various institutes, departments, and organizations that regularly sponsor such lectures in a hope to further edify their members. Tlie speakers ' achievements in their respective fields reflect the sponsors ' own desire to supply the fields with new research. Other times the sponsors wish to recognize the positive illustration made in the speaker ' s experiences or work. However, guest speakers and their sponsors are not always so idealistic. Although guest speakers seek to rouse and broaden their listeners ' minds, they also understand that they are, in a way a thinking person ' s kind of performer, a combination of both prtxiucti ' e dialogue and entertainment. As a result, some guest speakers lake a more ad-sav ' ' approach. TTiey make a point to tap into topics ot lesser intellectual, hut ot greater pop cultural importance, resulting in the unusual combinations of such figures as 1 larry Potter and St. Augustine, or the renaming their topics in the most clever and provocative way possible. Every speaker realizes that he has a captive audience and that it is his job to have the audience captive to the words coming from his mouth and not by the walls around them. Tlie speaker otten does this by recounting his personal experiences or soine amusing anecdotes on the subject. He understands that these decepti ' ely simple stories can more distinctly convey his proposed point than any amount ot formal research could. Through these methods, the speaker is able to entertain the audience into reevaluating its previous notions on the subject. Whichever method the speaker chooses to present his argument, he has already made an acute improvement beyond the ordinary lecture. It has gone beyond an obligation and has become something more than just entertainment. The two parties of speaker and audience have convened and emerge with a more insight) ul iew ol the topic. Upon first consideration, willingly attending a sixty or ninety minute long lecture by a guest speaker might be reason enough to question that person ' s mental stahilit . The topic and arguments being made can be difficult to discern, and after all, lectures are what many .students daily find to be tedious, sleep-inducing, or just plain absence-worthy. Howeve r, it is this willingness to participate in this seemingly banal exerci-se that sets these lectures apart; the willingness is not only shciwn by those attending who attentively listen to and reflect on the presentation, but by the speaker who crafts various resources or his own research into a carefully prepared line of reasoning. TTiis willingness to go beyond established obligations is visible evidence of a more profound motivation, that is, an ardent desire to gain greater insight into a topic of great personal relevance. bA ' EUgii V oglaeder o-«rr-T ' . r " - ♦, A Jf J f ' • ' iF f - ii I ' - - !►. mr ft - ' 1 These saidentj tittenJeJ the Ghiuiji ;iiiJ Termr- Lsm speech.

After the first football game of the 2004 season, with a somewhat surprising and disappointing loss to BYU, the home opening game had everyone talking about the potential force of the Michigan team, then ranked number eight. After all, the Notre Dame running game was held to 1 1 yards the week before, and the Irish didn ' t manage a single point against Michigan ' s 38 points last season. Senior running back Marcus Wilson said, " Going into the game, the team was thinking that we needed a win . . . and we needed to come in with great focus and great a ttitude. " Wilson and his teammates seemed to have a good handle on what was needed to beat Michigan. In the first half of the game, Michigan was forced to go for field goals, gaining 9 points this way and leaving the Irish trailing 9-0 at the half. However, Notre Dame was still very much in the game and just needed to make a big play. This it came early on in the 3 " quarter when senior wide receiver Matt Shelton caught a 46-yard pass from quarterback Brady Quinn, and with an extra point kick by D.J. Fitzpatrick the score was now 9-7. Wilson cited this moment as one of the highlights of the game. " Matt Shelton ' s touchdown started everything, " he stated. Later in the third quarter, the Irish were behind 12-7 after another Wolverine field goal. Senior quarterback Dwight Ellick intercepted a pass off of the hands of a Michigan ' s Braylon Edwards at the Michigan 29 yard line. After working their way to the 6 yard line, freshman running back Darius Walker completed it for a touchdown at the start of the 4 ' ' ' quarter. It was his first career touchdown, and also his first game, as he didn ' t play during the BYU contest. Michigan went three and out on its next drive, only to see the punt blocked by Jerome Collins and Chase Anastasio. Corey Mays recovered it on the Michigan 5 yard line. In just a couple of minutes. Walker scored again on a 5 yard drive, giving ND a solid 21 to 1 2 lead. With just under 6 minutes left in the game, senior Rashon Powers- Neal caught an 8 yard pass from Quinn, which sealed the deal, making the score 28-12. Though the Wolverines did put up some last minute points, it was not enough to stop the Fighting Irish. Notre D ame clinched the 28-20 victory when junior wide receiver Maurice Stovall recovered Michigan ' s onside kick. This was Notre Dame ' s first win over a top- 10 team since they beat fifth- ranked Michigan two years ago. The biggest surprise of the game was Darius Walker ' s double touchdown debut in the fourth quarter. All in all, Walker ran foi 115 yards on 31 carries, a starting game with ND that was anything but skiw. In the fourth quarter alone he rushed 14 times for 61 yards His effort, along with that of the rest of the offense, showed a much needed improvement. To show theii excitement for the win, the Notre Dame student section poured ontc the field. After the game, Marcus Wilsor said that he felt that " By beating Michigan, we made a statement that we weren ' t the team that went " against BYU. We felt that we had ;■: chance to show that we could be oni. of the best teams in the countr ' .

Things did not improve for the Irish after halftime. .After the Irish punted .m the first drive, Orton threw a 97- yard pass to Taylor Stuhliletield, right over the hands of comerhack Dwight Ellick. Tlie Irish responded with a touchdown of their own when Quinn connectal with Rhema McKnight for 40 ards. This made tlie score 27-10. Notre Dame kept pushing, and on their following dri ' e, Qiiinn threw a 41 -yard pass to Jeff Saniardirja.

A bright spot w-as Quinn ' s performance, as he was 26 of 46. Also, Anthony Fasano collected 155 vards, the most e ' er b ' an Irish tight end. Howe -er, Notre Dame only managed 76 rushing yards. After this heartbreaking loss, senior running back Ryan Grant knew that the team needed to come together quickly. Going into the Stanford game he " was thinking that we needed to start fast. " He added that the biggest worry was " not letting them get confidence early on beauise they had been doing well. " Despite this gcxxJ defensive showing in the first half, Irish did not seem to have the fast start points-wise that Grant had hoped for. With a field goal from D.J. Fitrpatrick in the second quarter, the team was behind 6-3 at halftime. Luckily, the players, especially the offense, united in the second half and started to make things happen. After the Irish gave up a Stanford field goal, Brady Quinn responded with a 43-yard pass to junior Maurice Stovall. This set up a touchdown mn for Grant, who was coming off of a two game break with a hamstring injury ' . For a moment, the Irish were ahead 10-9, but the Cardinal soon answered with a touchdown of their own. Going into the fourth quarter, Stanford had the lead again at 1 5-10, but Notre Dame wasn ' t done yet. After a botched Stanford punt that switched the momentum in favor of the Irish, Gr;mt scored his second touchdown of the game an a 3-yard run. The ND defense kept St;mford scoreless through the quarter and the win was clinched with a 2 yard run b ' quarterback Quinn with 4:10 left in the game to give the Irish a final winning score of 25-15. The 13 points put up in the fourth quarter was an impressive final effort b - the offense. It secured the 8-2 record against Stanford in Notre Dame stadium, which w the fifth win in a row against this team.

The 27-9 triumph kept Notre Dame ' s winning streak alive against Nav ' . This streak of 41 consecutive wins is a current NCAA record. Though Na 7 was having a strong season, being undefeated at game time, the Irish had little trouble defending their impre-ssive record versus the Academy. The Irish set the tone early and never backed down. Senior Ryan Grant led the Irish with 1 1 4 mshing yards and two of the tliree Notre Dame touchdowns. Tlus was his first 100-yard game in two years. Brady Quinn played as a confident leader and went 1 1 -20 passing for 130 yards. At half rime the score was 17-0. Though the Midsliipmen answered in the third with sn early field goal, Notre Danie ' s defense remained disciplined throughout the whole of the match. Tlie Irish limited Na ' y to 2 1 6 rushing yards , 51 less than average, and made 6 sacks in the game. Navy ' s scJe touchdown came on a 5-yard run late in the game, when the Irish ' s victory was already sealed. While the Irish played a well rounded game, distributing offensive attacks to both the ground and air, the defense shut down Navy ' s passing game and controlled the ball movement on the ground. Led by Greg Pauly and Derek Landri, the Irish had six sacks on the day and limited the Midshipmen to 2 1 6 yards rushing. " It ' s critically important when you play a team as skilled as diey are to limit their options and to try and get ahead of them, " said former coach TyTone Willingham. The Irish did just that and returned home with a win. Tlie Boston Gillege Eagles, long time rivals of the Irish, left Notre Dame fans speechless after a touchdown in die last minute put BC up 24-23 and secured the win. Tlie Irish had come out strong and led 20-7 at half rime. But Boston kept it together and outscored die Irish 17-3 in the last nvo quarters. Notre Dame was held to 24 yards msliing in the second half. Tliey gained 197 yards more than the Irish to pull off a heart breaking victory. Both team ' s quarterbacks had strong games, with the Boston College quarterback, Paul Peterson passing for 383 yards in 41 attempts. Quinn got off 33 attempts tor a total of 231 yards, including a touchdown pass and nin. However, he also threw two interceprions at critical p .)ints in the game. TTie tirst came at the Eagles ' 1 yard Hne, and the second was picked off at BCs 11 -yard line. These proved to be huge defensive plays for the Eagles. D.J. Fitzpatrick kicked a 43- yard field goal with 2:51 left in the game, giving the Irish a six point lead. But BC had ample time to put together a game-winning drive. It ended with an amazing catch made by Tony Gonzalez in the end-zone. The extra point gave the Eagles a one point lead with 54 seconds remaining on the clock. Hie Irish were able to set-up and get off a 55-yard field goal attempt, but as time ran out, the baU fell short. Tlie Eagles notched their fourth straight win over die Irish.

The student body, eager to experience what Sports Illustrated On Campus judged to be the best college ftxitball Saturday atmosphere in the country, traveled en masse, and the sea of green met an ocean of orange in Neyland Stadium. Total attendance was estimated at 107,266. The ensuing game was a real dogfight, with big plays making the difference on a day when both offenses struggled. Tlie first of these came in the second quarter when Volunteer Cedric Housttin dodged multiple Notre Dame defenders. His 56-yard touchdown put Tennessee up 10-3. The next big play cxcurred at the end of the first half. Tennessee, with the lead and the ball, could have simply taken a knee and headed into the locker room. Instead, Volunteer coach Philip Fulmer sent his team out in shotgun formation to try a Hail Mar ' . Irish linebacker Brandon Hoyte broke through the line and laid a hard hit on UT ' s freshman phenom quarterback, Erik Ainge, separating his shoulder and forcing him out of the game. Tennessee came out in the second half with junior Rick Clausen replacing Ainge. Clausen folded under intense pressure from the Irish pass rush, and made a costly mistake. As he was being sacked b ' defensive tackle Derek Landri, Ainge desperately tried to throw the ball away, only to see it drop into the hands of linebacker Mike Goolsby. Goolsby returned the interception 26 yards for a touchdown and a 14-10 Notre Dame lead. Tliis was the first score of his career and Notre Dame ' s third defensive score of the year. Tliis would prove enough tor the victory. Tennessee notched a field goal late in the third quarter, but D.j. Fitzpatrick ' s 39 yard field goal in the fourth made the final score 17-1 3, for the second Irish upset of a top-ten team this season. The Irish defense was the star unit for the game, surrendering only 58 yards on the ground and 269 through the air. In addition to his interception — the only of the game for either team — Gcxilsby led the team in tackles, with seven. Hoyte and Derek Curry each had six, while senior defensive end Justin Tuck had five, with tv o of them coming on sacks. This was his second multi-sack game of the season. Tuck ' s second quarter sack moved him to the top of Notre Dame ' s all- time sack list, with 2 3.5. He had been tied with former Irish player Kor ' Minor prior to this play. The only Volunteer touchdown of the evening came when running back Cedric Houston took a dump off passi from Erik .Ainge and scampered 56 yards into the end zone. On the other side of the ball, Notre Dame was less successful. Brady Quinn finished with only 1 1 8 yards and one touchdov Ti on 12 of 23 passing. However, the offense did enough to win. In the first quarter, tliL started at their own 20 yard line and marched downfield on a drive that included a breakaway 32 -yard run by freshman tailback Darius Walker. It ended with Quinn ' s lone touchdown pass of the day, to Anthony Fasano. While the offense stalled at times in the ensuing three quarters, efficient running by Walker (9 carries for 70 yards) and Ryan Grant (12 for 50) was enough to keep the Irish in control for the victory.

They are also involved in community service acriviries and Littentl tournaments for men ' s and women ' s siKcer, volleyball, and women ' s basketball when invittxl. And, of course, both squads cheer at the Blue Gold spring game. An exceedingly hard-working group, the team practices tour nights a wex ' k tor twu hours., In addition, they are rcviuircxl to lift weights two to tour lime ' s a week. And like ;uiy athletic team here on campus, these mai ;md womai also go through pre-season training, which runs during the last week of August. Despite the time commitment, members of the squad assure that it is all worthwhile. " Fixitball games -are the best... with Iluis lining the sidewalks during step-off, hanging over the balcony and chcvring like cnizy, " says senior captain Megan Wilson. " You get chills standing at the tumiel entrance wliile the band files in all around. Leading the team into the stadium is one of my favorite parts. It is amadng running all the way down the field surrounded by 80,000 people, who are just as excited to be there as you are. And this is all before the game even starts! The chcxjrleaders arc «thout a doubt a cherished faction on campus. They shine as a continual reminder of die enthusiasm for Notre Dune that we as Domers should all embcxiy. And according to Wilscjn, this spirit is clearly evident. " Our student section has to be the best anywhere, hands down. They contribute so much to the Notre Diime football experience, " she asserts. When ;isked about what makes her most proud of her squads, Goach Minttin asserts, " The way they represent our university as ambassadors while on trips, around campus, and during community visits. I always get compliments as to their friendliness, politeness and their physical talents as cheerleaders. " by Sheremy Cabrera TiJt AR mr C iaLsuJL D ; auAv TiJt JuNi ?R.

" It is a really time-consuming job, " says senior Kaitlin Redding, the men ' s tennis manager. " But it is worth it because it is aii amazing opportunity to be such tin integral part of Notre Dame athletics. " Freshman year, anyone can sign up for the program. Along with the sophomore managers, they work a variety of sports. At the end of sophomore ' ear, based on peer evaluations, 21 managers are selected to continue. As juniors, they work only with the fixitball team during the season. NX ien it ends, they again complete peer evaluations, which detennine the assignments to sports for senior year. Each senior handles one sport, with the exceprion of three for football and tvvo for men ' s iind women ' s basketball. Responsibiliries handling laundry, and cleaning up after pracrices, offensive and during footbal range from setring up before and to charting defensive plays games. One of the highlights is painting the fiwtball helmets before each game. Contrary to the depiction in Rudy, this is not a speedy process that ends with a trip to G)rby ' s. Wlien the team plays at home, the painting is done over two days; for away games, it is completed on Thursday. The managers devote anywhere from six to eight hours to this prcxess. Every Hmrsday night, m;inagers begin by buffing the helmets and taping the face masks to guard against drips. To ensure that everything runs smcwthly, " We tape over the player ' s numbers beforehand .so that no one argues about which one they get to do, " says Redding. The helmets require two coats of paint. The second contains flecks of 24 carat gold from the Dome. Though some managers joke that they eat, sleep, and breathe Notre Dame sports, it is because of the long hours that they establish close friendships. " I can say without hesitation that through the Student Manager Organization, I have met people that I v ill remember and keep in touch with the rest of my life, " declares Football Personnel Manager Maureen Mulvaney. " Tlic Kind that is created through the hard work and dedication of the SMO is unbreakable. " In addition, the managers also receive issue gear, stipends for buyiiig textbooks, ftxjtball and basketball tickets, and seniors receive 65-100% tuition assistance. Sometimes they are luck ' enough to meet people like fonner Notre Dame football stars Jcie Montana and Derrick Mayes. And, of course, one other small perk is the chance to do things that most students only dream of. Mulvaney says, " As a Student Manager, I got a rare opportunity every game day: I got to run out of the tunnel with the football team. The feeling you get when you emerge in front of thousands of cheering fans is electrifying. Words can ' t describe it.

P ujto cijurtcsy of Sports Infomutum Trainers Ensure health of Irish athletes If it ' s Sam on a football Saturday, what are you doing? Most of us are awakening to the sound of the hand parading around campus or getting ready for a few hours of tailgating. However, for the 18 student atiiletic trainers at Notre Dame, chances are they are just arriving to the hotel at which the team is staying. Here, they apply rehabilitation to injured athletes, and also take preventative measures to keep the players injury-free during the physically demanding day ahead. While the majoriry of the students are piling into a packed Notre Dame stadium, our student athletic trainers are in the training rtx)m of the stadium, which is connected to the team ' s locker room. Here, they assist the athletic trainers and team dcxtors in administering more prc-gamc treatments. During the game, student athletes are spaced th roughout Notre Dame ' s and the opposing team ' s sideline. Each trainer has a specific dury, whether it lie standing behind the offensive unit, getting the players the proper assistance they need from a trainer or doctor, or rumiing water bottles out to players and referees during timeouts. As for the post- game acrivities, it depends on the outcome of the game. " If we win a big game and the students are about to rush the field, we grab everything we can and rush in, " says Jennette Haines, a senior student trainer. Student athletic trainers are in ' oived in all twenty-si.x NCAA Division I sports at Notre Dame. They are responsible for assisting the sports medicine staff with the daily tasks involved with the well-being of the Fightin ' Irish student-athletes. TTiese may include working practices and events, assisting with treatments in the training room (located in the JACC or the football stadium) or iin site at the sporting event, and practice and game preparation. Freshmen can volunteer tor the program during the fall. At the end of freshman year, students are selected to continue in the program based on their enthusiasm, attitude, and work ethic, as v ' ell as the needs of the program. The 18 trainers develop a strong bond with each other as a result of so many hours spent together throughout the years. " I go to work each day looking forward to spending time with Rachel, Katie, andjacquie, " Haines comments. " They are the senior girls that I have gotten to know so well over the past four years, both at work and outside of work. " When an athlete sustains an injury, the chain of command begins with the student athletic trainer. If the injury warrants further attention, the staff sports trainer or a Notre Dame team physician will prinide a complete check-up on the athlete. Athletes may find comfort in the fact that there is always a friendly student near them to assist them when injury- strikes. While several of the student athletic trainers are pursuing a career in health care or sports training, most trainers have diverse, non-medical- related majors. One commonaliry of all Notre Dame student athletic trainers is their commitment to helping create and sustain a healthy and successful athletic program at Notre Dame. by Tara Weiler liL-ni Willi. ini-s cuchc up (in stimc sleep dur- ■« in ; n hrc-ik.

A disappointing tenth place finish at the NCAA Qiampionship, however, left the Irish dissatisfied, and determined to bring home a trophy from nationals this year. The women ' s team made a statement this fall, placing third or better in all of its regular- season meets. Senior Lauren King attributes the current Irish success to the hard work and btmding of her fellow team members. Of her teammates. King says, " The closer we are and the more we care about each other, the stronger our motivation in races to work hard because we are essentially running for one another. " Both King and fellow senior Kerr ' Meagher have battled injun ' in order to help their team succeed. Junior Stephanie Madia believes that King and Meagher " have put the team ahead of their individual goals " in order to make the cross country team the best it can be. As the sixth-ranked team in the country, the Irish wait into the pre-NCAA Championsliips with hopes of qualifying for nationals as a team. The Irish left pre-nationals with a second place finish, led by junior Moll ' Huddle who finished third. Tlie wonderful fi:iish for the Irish can also be attributed to strong finishes by Madia, Meagher, fresliman Sunni Olding, and King. The Irish headed to Boston, Massachusetts for the Big Eist Championsliips at the end of October. Still ranked sixth after pre-nationals, the women entered the meet as the two-time defending Big East champions. Though looking to make it three in a row, the Irish arrived as the self- proclaimed underdogs, knowing that Villanova and Providence were fierce competition. Lbfortunately, the women could not best the Providence Friars, and finished second to diem. Once again. Huddle led the team, as she came in fifth, clocking in at 20:16. She claimed her third straight top-five Big East finish. Stephanie Madia finished 10th v itli a time of 21£)0 and Sunni Olding crossed the line in 12 th place, at 21. -04. Tliis time placed her as the top-finishing fresliman in the field. Both Olding and Madia joined Huddle in claiming all-Big East honors. In addition, Meagher ;ind King placed 19th and 21st, respectively. Tliough disapptiinted that they could not bring home the Big East title, the team has turned its attention towards regionals. Heading into tliis meet, as well as the NCAA Championships, the Irish are enduring increasingly intense workouts, which King believes will greatly improve the team. All Irish team members know that in cross country, injury is inevitable due to grueling nature of the sport.

Following up on a second place finish in the Big East last year, Notre Dame ' s men ' s cross country team continued to find success this fall. Through their winning performances, the Irish showal that their countless miles of running and hours of lifting paid oft, as they completely dominated their competitors. The Irish began their season at the Valparaiso Invitational, where sophomore Dan Driscoll placed first, followed consecutively by five Irish teammates. With their top-six sweep, the Irish not only secured first place for the mcx;t, but also demonstrated the power that would continue to be apparent throughout the season. Over the next month, the Irish returned to Notre Dame ' s Burke Memorial Golf Course for two home races. In pursuit of the National Catholic Championship title, junior Tim Moore earned the first win of his career ;ind led two of his teammates to a top three finish, wliile four other Irish runners finished in the top nine. This amadng perfomiance resulted in ;m 87 point Irish thrasliing over ainner-up Gonzaga. Irish sophomore Kurt Benninger finished up the regular season with a second place finish at the Notre Dame Invitarional to lead the Irish to a second place overall finish, only 6 points behind the number one cross countr ' team in the country, Stanford. As the ninth-ranked team in the country, the Irish men ' s team headed into the pre-NCAA Championsliips facing brutal competition, including the powerful Stanford squad. Benninger once again led the team to a second place finish behind St;inford with an individuid 8 ' ' ' place tinish.

Tim Mcxire led die team with a sixth place finish, finishing in 23:53. He was followed by Kurt Benninger, Kaleb Van Ort, and Sean O ' Donnell, who placed seventh, eight, and ninth. All four won Big East honors. However, Notre Dame still needed a little sometliing extra to launch them into first place. So junior ' V ' incent Anibrico stepped up to die plate ;)nd provided a late surge. After starting off slow, he picked up the pace in the tin;il 1,000 meters of liis race. Ambrico overcame four runners in a time of 24:27 to claim 17 th place. Tliis was just enough to propel the Irish to a one point victory- over det aiding champion Georgetown.

Alter a successful regular season, an injurN ' to leading Irish hitter, junior Lauren Kelhley, could have been detrimental in the post-season, but the team overcame this oKstacle. Kelbley ' s classmate Liuren Brewster stepped up to power the Irish through the Big List Championship and on into the NCAA Tournament. The Irish were the top seed heading into the Big East Tournament and were Big East regular season champions for the sixth year in a row. Last year, the Irish were in the same position heading in conference post-season play, but lost the final game of the championship. Just one week pritir to capturing the Big Eiist title from rival Pittsburgh at Pittsburgh, tlic Irish defeated the Panthers in a three game sweep at Notre Dame. Tlie powerful showing by the Irish at the end of the season avenged the loss to Pitt in last year ' s Big E;ist Championship game at the Joyce O nter. Brewster lit it up this year ' s championship v ith 27 kills and a tournament -high 14 blcKks, earning her the Most Outstanding Player award for the tournament. Junior Meg Henican, freshman Adrianna Stasiuk, and sophomore Danielle Hemdon provided powerful defense for the Irish all season, and combined for 64 digs in the Big East Championship game. Tliroughout the year, Notre Dame ' s defensive play has been a critical determinant of success. With her extraordinar ' experience in the back row, Henican became only the Z ' " libero ever to he named Big East Player of the Week. Lauren Kelhley overcame her injure- to lead the Irish in kills in the championship game. Freshniiin setter . ' shley Tarutis was a huge part of the Irish offense, setting up 34 assists for her powerful hitters. Notre Dame ' s wcimen ' s volleyball team can he proud to lx)ast a plethora of powerful performances this year. As a team, the Irish met and broke school records in digs and kills per game and became regular season Big East champions for the 6 ' ' straight season and the 9 ' " ' rime in only 10 years in the league. They also made it to Big East Championship game for the 10 ' ' ' straight season, and earned a spot in the national tournament tor the 1 3 ' ' ' straight season. Tliis team succeeded by working hard to battle a grueling schedule filled with the nation ' s top teams, including 12 NCAA teams frtmi last year ' s tournament. Irish Head Q)ach Debbie Brown knows what it ' s like to compete nationally, as she was a three-time NCAA champion at the University ' of South Girolina.

Assistmit Coach Qiris Wliirtcn Sports Women ' s Golf Ends with season-low round Notre Dame ' s women ' s golf team fimily believes that in their individual sport success can only be achieved through the efforts of unified, hardworking individuals. The Irish once again found major success in the 2004 fall season, and even topped their powerful showing in the 2003 fall season. On the trail of twi consecutive Big East Championships and an NCAA Berdi in the spring of 2004, Notre Dame ' s women ' s golf team faced high expectations this fall. Impressive showings by the 2003-2004 Irish leading scorer, then freshman Noriko Nakaiaki, as well as classmate Stacy Brown, who finished 4 ' ' on the team in stroke average last season, demonstrated the pxitenrial that even these young players would have to offer this season. Head G)ach Debby King hoped for improvements in the early fall season that would signify good things to come throughout the rest of the year. At the start of September, the Irish came out strong, placing 3 " of 17 teams at home in the Notre Dame Invitational on a weekend of record-breaking by the Irish, champion Iowa State, and runner-up Washington. A few weeks later, the Irish traveled to Texas, to claim their trophy as the Central Regional FVeview champions at the Jeannine McHaney Invitational. They were led by individual champion junior Katie Brophy, who is only the second Irish goiter to hcJd two career individual tournament titles. She also ranks Freshman Jane Lee lines up her purt.

By defeating three top 25-ranked teaiiis, die Irish left their mark iit Texas and made a statement about their powerful team desire. This strong start was indicative of good things to come. After a 7 ' ' ' -place finish at last season ' s Shoot-Out at Legends in Franklin, Indiana, the Irish came back this season with a 1 " place finish. Qice again, standout Katie Brophy along with sophomore teammate Stacy BrovMi led the Irish to victory, with a litde help from sophomore Noriko Nakazaki and junior Suiie Hayes. A 6 ' ' ' place finish at the final match of the fall season, die Edwin Watts Palmetto Litercollegiate, is misleading. Scores for 18 teams at Watts Palmetto were extremely low, as the Irish shot dieir lowest round of the entire seastm. Tliis was a defining moment for the Irish. Thanks to strong individual performances this fall, every Irish golfer contributed to the team ' s success. For now, the Irish are looking to continue with dieir success and positive momentum, and to improve Ixidi individually and as a team in die spring. Notre Dame ' s next mission is to once again ckiim the status of Big East Qiampion in the spring oi 2005.

Against the Crimson, junior guard Chris Quinn scored twenty points, and Notre Dame led by as many as eighteen. Although they won only four games last season, the Harvard players picked up their game in the second half and led the Irish by two with just over six minutes left. Notre Dame stopped them from scoring for the remainder of the half, coming away with a seven-point victory. The Irish played more convincingly against IPFW, dominating 73-45, and against Charleston Southern, winning with a score of 54-38. Charleston Southern ' s 38 points falls second on the list of fewest points allowed by Notre Dame in the Joyce Center. The Harvard match-up was really the only home test for the Irish before the team took their game on the road to Michigan. Ranked twentieth, they fell 61-60 to the Wolverines as Quinn and senior guard Chris Tliomas combined for only eight points. Senior Dennis Latimore stepped up with eighteen points and five rebounds. Michigan dug away at Notre Dame ' s ten point lead midway through the second half, and Daniel Horton ' s three-point play with 20.7 seconds left in the game put the Wolverines ahead. Thomas missed one shot and had another blocked in the last ten seconds of the game, cementing Michigan ' s victory. Tlie men responded with a road win against Indiana four days later, as Thomas, Quinn, and junior Torin Francis each scored thirteen points. Francis also grabbed thirteen rebounds in the 55-45 win, ending Notre Dame ' s eight-game losing streak to the Hoosiers. The Irish next lost at home to DePaul, giving up 84 points. A 15-5 run by the Blue Demons gave them a sixteen- point lead with about four minutes left in the game, and the Irish had trouble bouncing back. Thomas ' twenty-four points and Colin Falls ' career-high twenty points couldn ' t match the four DePaul players who scored in double digits. The Irish followed up the DePaul loss with six consecutive victories, including a one-point road win over Seton Hall on January 5. The Irish clinched their Big East opener 66-65 with a three-pointer by Falls with 3.8 seconds remaining in the game. Falls was also the team ' s high scorer, posting nineteen points. Francis and Thomas each added fifteen points. and Francis chalked up ten rebounds in the close, back-and-forth game. Six lead changes and five ties! occurred in the second half alone. The Irish used their buildinuji momentum to carry them to victor | over Villanova three days later. Notre Dame defeated the Wildcat-- 78-72 at the Joyce Center, moving them to a 2-0 Big East record and making them 10-2 on the season. With three minutes remaining and ; tied score, Thomas moved into high gear, scoring eight of his team-high twenr ' -five points. F alls and Quinn each had sixteen points, and the Irish matched their season-high of ele ' en three-point shots. Notre Dame also had a perfect free throw game making all nineteen attempts.

Entering rhe 2004-05 season, the H tre Dame won en ' s basketball team brought with it the same excitement and expectations that are nciw characteristic of the profjram. Tlie team, full of eteran players, was led by senior AU-American Jacqueline Batteast. She was 1 1 ' " ' on Notre Dame ' s all time scoring list with 1,315 points coming into her final year. Juniors Megan Duffy and Quirmey LaVere are also serious threats for the Irish and leaders on and off the court. With a dangerous combination oi seasoned players and strong, influential rookies the Fighting Irish were looking to continue then ' tradition ot success. Qi Novemlvr 22, the Irish opened the season with a home win against Qilorado State, outscoring the Rams 69-47. This win forecasted a strong start fiir Notre Dame, who went 9-1 after 10 games. Tlieir only loss came on December 2nd from a dominant Michigan State team in oxertime. After a hard fought game, the Spartans managed to oust the Irish 82- 73. The Irish did not dwell on this loss, however. Tlieir road to the top- 10 included a v in o ' er Washingtem, in which freshman Crystal Erwiii scored 24 points. TTiis was her career- high, iind her 9 of 9 shooting tied an 1 8-vear-old Joyce Center I c w farf record. The Irish also had a 54- 33 victory over Scton Hall, in which they held the Pirates to 22 percent shooting — the fewest points allowed by the Irish this season. A few days after that, numlxT 4 ranked Notre Dame downed Syracuse 75-58. Breona Gray, Teresa Bortoii, and Megan Duffy each scored seveiiteeii points in the outing. Tliis win gave the Irish their best start since going 23-0 in 2000-01 , their championship season. Notre Dame ' s only other two losses from the first 25 games came back to back in early January, one away and one on home territory. First at Villanova, the Wildcats upset the Irish, who w ere ranked 4 ' ' ' at the rime ot the meeting, 59- 54- Then just 3 days later, back in South I -nd, the Irish were beat by the defending National Champions in a sloppy 67-50 loss to the Gmnecticut Huskies. Tlie Huskies held the Irish to 29 percent shooting in the second half, and Batteast was held to eight points, ciimpared to her 19.1 point average.

The closest margin of these games was a seven-point win over St. John ' s, who apparently played the toughest they have all season. Perhaps the most rewarding win as of yet was the rematch game versus Connecticut. Not only did the Irish avenge their earlier defeat, with a 65- 59 victory, but Notre Dame snapped the Huskies Big East home winning streak of 112 games. Before this game, UConn had not lost a home conference game since 1993 and had beaten the Irish in eight straight contests. Teresa Borton had a career-high 1 1 reKiunds and Courtney LeVere led the Irish with 14 points and a dominating inside game. Notre Dame continued their strong play against 16 ' ' ' ranked Boston College and handed them a loss, 64-57. Jacqueline Batteast proved herself as the team leader as she battled throughout the game, despite being sick. She could not play more than seven minutes in the first half, but did not give up, and scored all of her 1 5 points in the second half. Notre Dame held the Eagles, the nation ' s best shooting team, to 34 percent shooting, and kept them scoreless for five minutes down the stretch. A 75-58 defeat over Georgetown on February 12 gave the Irish an overall record of 22-3. Then, a few days later, the Irish picked up their 10 ' ' straight win with another victory over Boston College. This streak was soon snapped by No. 10 Rutgers, who beat the Irish 59-48 on January 23. TTie Irish finished out the regular season with contests agaitist West Virginia and Seton Hall. After 25 games, Batteast had moved herself up to fourth place on Notre Dame ' s all-time scoring list. The women showed no signs of slowing down as March Mad- ness approached. They had all the experience one could ask for with 8 of the 1 1 players on the squad having played in at least three NCAA Tournament games, and five o( them having Strong a half-dozen postseason contests under their belts. Muffet Mc- Graw would be the first to tell you that you cannot count on past performance to produce re- sults in the future. She has said, " Tlie road to the Final Four can be filled with a lot of potholes. " This quote proved tnie when the Irish lost to Arizona State in the second round of the NCAA tournament. After heading to Fresno, California and showing strong play in the first round against UC Santa Barbara and a solid first half against the Sun Devils, the Irish were unable to hold on for the win, losing 70-61.

This part of the season was very intense and physically and mentally draining, but it was the time for the team to prepare for a competitive spring racing season.

Ranked 13 " ' ' at the end of the season, the Irish were granted a first round game against Minnesota, otherv isc known as the tw ' o-time defending national champions. With a 2-0 lead early in the game against Minnesota, Notre Dame kxiked to promise an upset. However, 5 Minnesota goals later, the Irish fell in their first tournament appearance hy a score of 5-2. They finished 20- 154, good for a fourth place rie in the Central Qillegiate HcKkey Association (CCHA) standings. This season, the Irish lost 6 players to graduation but, with high expectations, also acquired 3 freshman players. Thus tar, this season has not been as successful as last year for the Irish. However, they can Kiast a victory over then numlxT-one ranked Boston Ciillege. r.J. Jindra, a sophomore, scored a short-handed goal with 14.6 seconds left to send the game into overtime. He also scored the winning overtime goal off a pass from fellow sophomore Wes O ' Neill. Senitir Morgan Cey ' s career- high 50 saves in the Boston Qillege game were also a huge factor in the 3-2 upset. He made 20 saves in the first period, 10 in the second, and 20 in the third. 28 of these saves came on Boston College power plays. This victory was Notre Dame ' s first of the year and marked the second rime in two seasons that the Irish have upset the Eagles. Cey ' s heroics earned him the CCHA Cioaltender of the Week and the USC:HC) 1THP Defensive Player of the Week awards. On November 13, it seemed like de ja vous for the Irish, as they secured a 3-2 victory over Western Michigan. In their first CCHA win of the season, Jindra ;md O ' Neill provided goals, along with senior Cory McLean. Cey stopped 38 of Western Michigitn ' s 40 shots. All season, the Irish have battled to force overrime and ties rather than taking losses. They have also held on to win a few close games, including one against Michigan State in overrime. Junior Matt Amado ' s goal secured the come-from- behind win for the Irish and snapped a three-game losing streak. Also, Mike Walsh scored his first goal of the season, and Victor Oreskovich notched his first career assist. Many of Notre Dame ' s losses have been heartbreaking, end- of-the-game breakdowns, and five ties thus far have been well fought games. Statistically, the Irish have perfonned at least as well as if not better than their opponents and teams in their conference overall in the categories of saves, shots on goal, goals scored per shot, as well as goals scored. The Irish continued to struggle during the remainder of the season. Although this has been a frustrating season for the Irish, a team with such young players can only expect better days ahead.

Nearly a month later, the 23rd- ranked Irish women battled two other top-25 squads, Arizona State and Purdue. Although the Irish fell short against both teams, their rimes and performances bcxled well for the future. Sophomore Jessica Stephens had three top-three finishes, while Barton, Johnson, freshman Caroline Johnson, ;md fifth-year senior diver Meghan Perr ' -Eiiton each finished in the top-twci in at least one event. Victories over Pittsburgh, Michigan State, and Ball State moved the women to a 21 ranking going into the Georgia Fall Invitarional and the Notre Dame Invitarional. Despite leaving only four team members — three divers and one swintmer — at home to compete at the NDl, the Irish placed 9th out of thirteen teams, led by Perr -Eaton ' s first place in diving. In (Jeorgia, meanwhile, Caroline Johnson was the top-finisher for the Irish, placing third in the 100 backstroke with a NCAA " B " rime and her collegiate-liest of 55.93.

Coach Tim Wekh was named the Big East Coach of the Year, and his swin ' uners were honored as an Academic AU-American Team for their average 3.157 GPA. After adding an Athens Olympian, a six-time All-American, four divers, and three other talented swimmers to round out the nine- member freshman class, the Irish men ' s team seemed poised for another record-breaking season. The men opened their season with a dual meet versus Ev;msville and the Dennis Stark Relays. The strong crop of freshman joining the veterans proved to be a winning equation. The team beat Evaasville in every event except for two and won the Relays for the seventh time in eight years. Against Evans ville, sophomore Louis Cavadini won the 50 and 100 freestyle events, coming close to his career best in the 50. Frashmen Drew McKay, Graham Parker, and Sam St oner also claimed firsts. During the Relays, Alan Carter won three events, including the 200 free relay that sparked five consecutive first- place finishes for Notre Dame. Overall, 30 of the 35 swimmers took first place in at least one event. The Irish men next defeated the Utah team 123-118 on the road as freshman Jay Vanden Berg tallied two victories. His win in the 1 ,000 freestyle was part of two back-to-back 1-2-3 finishes for the Irish. Vanden Berg ' s 9: 37.44 led 2 " ' place junior Patrick Davis and 3 ' ' ' place sophomore Chris Zeches. In the the 200 freestyle, sophomore Ted Brown, senior captain Matt Bertke, and sophomore Brian Freeman again swept the Utes. Battling the high- altitude and experiencing less than 24 hours of rest since their meet against Utah, the Irish lost to 22 Brigham Young. Seeking their first-ever win against a nationally-ranked team, senior Frank Krakowski , sophomore Tim Kegelman, Brown, and Cavadini posted a 2 " ' ' -place rime of 3.-06.37 in the 400 freestyle relay, a time faster than all but one of the dual meet times from last season. However, the men didn ' t have to wait long to defeat a nationally- ranked team. On November 12, the men ' s 400 free relay team of Krakowski, Cavadini, sophomore Nick Fanslau, and Kegelman touched out 17 Pittsburgh by .04 seconds to defeat the eight-time defending Big East champions for the first time since 1960. Notre Dame won seven events, led by Brown ' s wins in the 200 and 500 freestyles and victories by Davis and junior Doug Bauman. After this streak-ending win, the men were r;inked 2 L ' , the first rime in schtxil liistory that the team had cracked the top 25.

The women ' s team includes three-time NCAA Foil Chanpion senior Alicja Kryczalo, who will be competing for number four this spring, as well as two-time ninner-up and one-time bronze medalist senior Andrea Amait. Tliey are piiied by 2002 NCAA Epee Champion Kerry Walton, 2004 NCAA Sabre Qiiimpion Valeric Providaiza, and Zagunis, who will be a top contender iii the sabre as well. Also in epee, sophomore Amy Orlando, has nearly clinched her second straight spot on the US Under-20 National Team that will compete at the World Championsliips. Curraitly, die Irish are ranked second in the United States Fencing Giaches Association Poll. This year the team hopes to relight die " 1 " atop Grace Hall and bring home another team nationtJ tide, as they did in 2003. The three captains, Danielle Davis, Kryczalo, and Walton all have a pKXsitive feeling aKiut what their tetWs future miiy hold. " We have a great staff and as a team, handle ourselves very well. Our strong sense of camaraderie will help us in the last long stretch of the season, " states Will ton. Wliile Walton describes the team as being made up of two diverse groups, she believes it is a winning combination. Between Irish women who have fenced all their lives and those who simply picked it up in g iii class, die team does ver ' well in all around competition. In the Oliio State Duals in early February, the Irish reserves saw much of the action and went 4-0 in the competition. The women ' s sabre team led the way against their largest rival, Ohio State, with an luidefeated (36-0) day. The Irish have also enjoyed some home field advantage this season, placing host to the Notre Dame Duals on Jiinuar ' 29 ' ' and 30 ' ' The team closed out another LUidefeated weekend, liiglilighted by wins over No. 3 Penn State and 6 ' ' ' -ranked Northwestern. The women managed to win 86 percent of their bouts in the two-day competition. The Midwest Fencing Qinference Championsliips, held on Febniary 26 ' ' ' and 27 ' ' ' ' was also hosted at dieJACC. From there, the Irish went on to compete in the NCAA Championships. The senior class looked forward to their last chance to compete for another tide. " It really builds your self-esteem to know that the rest cif your team, a ver ' talented team, is there for you, evai when you arai ' t having the best day, " said Walton. The Irish qualified six womai for the NCAA tournament and overcame an early deficit to earn die tide.

The team went into the 2004 NCAA Tournament with high hopes, but encountered obstacles along the way. Although the Irish floundered as a whole at the tournament, junior epeeist Michal Sobieraj took the bronze medal, while his teammate, freshman Patrick Ghattas finished lO " " in the sabre. This year, the men hope to battle back from their 3 " place showing to reclaim the national fencing title. The men had a strong pre-season, led by a first place finish in the foil competition from freshman Jakub Jedrkowiak at the Northwestern Open. Later in November, Jedrkowiak also finished in second place at the Perm State Open. At the NYU Duals in January the 4 ' ' ranked Irish opened their season by going 3- 1 with their one loss coming at the hands of number-one-ranked Ohio State. Now-senior Michal Sobieraj went lO-I at NYU while now-sophomore Patrick Ghattas went 10-2 at the event to lead the men ' s squad. Later on in January at the Notre Dame Duals, the Irish faced three of the top-ranked teams in the nation, including 8 NCAA individual champions. Notre Dame avenged their loss to Ohio State, but ended up losing once again to the Buckeyes on the final day for their first and only loss of the event. Michal Sobieraj went 20-1 overall at the Notre L )ame Duals, giving him enough wins to secure the 14 ' ' ' position in Notre Dame ' s record Kxiks for career wins by an Irish fencer in any weapon. Following the Notre Dame Duals in January, the Irish came out of the Ohio State Duals unbeaten by Bowling Green, Purdue, Case, and Oberlin. Once again, Sobieraj had an outstanding showing, going 12- in the epee event arid moving up to 8 place in Notre Dame career wins history. Also going undefeated for the Irish at Ohio State were senior John Espinosa, juniors Nicholas Diacou and Alex Schumacher, winning six sabre bouts apiece, as well as freshman foilist Joseph Hagmann. Junior foilist Andrew Zodda went 7-1 to help the Irish. Next up this season, the Irish traveled to Duke to compete in the Duke Duals. Tough competition was expected at the Duke duals, but the Irish remained strong through the Junior Olympics in Texas in February, before returning to South Bend for the Midwest Fencing Conference Championships at the end of Februarv " . Tlie men were powerful this season and in a solid position heading into the NCAA tournament, and the team did not disappoint.

In the case of the 2004 Irish stiftball team, however, pieople knew better, and the Irish 1-iegan the season as the 1 pick in the Big East Conference. TTiroughout the season, Notre Dame dominated in nearly every part of the game. Strong pitching bolstered the team, which relied on the talents of starters Heather Booth, a sophomore, and junior Big East Rtcher of the Year Steffany Stenglein. Booth threw multiple complete games, including a 1-0 shutout in February against Notre Dame ' s biggest rival, then-ranked 14 Nebraska. Stenglein, who finished with a 1 .39 ERA, tossed a perfect game agai:Tst Valparaiso, the second of her career. In the 9- win, she struck out 14 of 18 batters and did not allow a ball out of the infield. The Irish were dangerous at the plate as well, boasting a lineup in vvliich more than half the team batted over .300 in conference play. Megan Ruthrauff, Stephanie Brown, and Nicole deFau swung hot bats, as did Big East Player ot the Year Megan Ciolli who led the league in batting average, hits, tmd on- base percentage.

Notre Dame was undefeated in its league heading into the final 2 games of the regular season at Seton Hall, only to lose them Kith, finishing with an 18-2 league record. The Irish finished with a 46-16 overall record and headed into the Big East Championships as the number one seed.

With a 9-5 record in the 2003 season, eleven seniors returning, and a 12 ranking from the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association, it was clear that the 2004 team had some experience under their belts. Tliey started the regular season play with a bang - a 17-7 win against Perm State at home on February 29 . However, this big win was overshadowed by losses in four out of the next five contests, culminating in a disappointing 9-8 loss to Ohio State with twelve seconds to go. A bright spot in this tough stretch of games was the lone Irish victory, in which they crushed 1 3th-ranked Hofstra, 19-11. This game included a five-goal performance from junior Brian Giordano. Senior goalie Stewart Crosland called this game and the team ' s dominating victory over Penn State the biggest thrills of the season. TTie March 31 " game against Ohio State was a turning point for the team, as they won an amazing five games in a row taking their 2- 4 record to a more impressive 7-4. Many of the wins were high scoring for the Irish, and three of the team ' s wins in 2004 saw opponents trailing by 10 points. The team ' s biggest assets, according to Crosland, were the senior leadership and the skill of all the players. " We had talent all over the field - I think it was the most talented team so far in my time here, " he said. Maybe he ' s referring to a defense that gave up only five total goals in two consecutive games against Dartmouth and Air Force, the best defensive showing for ND to date.

Or maybe it ' s the six All-Great Western Lacrosse League Honorees. It might also be Brian Qordano and Matt Howell who were Great Western Lacrosse League Players of the Week during the 2004 season for exceptional performances. Just as it would seem, there was an abundant amount of talent for the Irish. Coming off of five wins, this hardworking group ' s hopes for making the tournament were dashed in the final game of the regular season. 12 ND met 3 Maryland at Maryland. The Irish held an 8-7 lead coming to the close of the game. However, a Terrapins goal with 19 seconds left would send the game into a tiring two overtimes. Maryland narrowly ended up on top with a 9-8 victory, leaving the Irish devastated. TTiis was Notre Dame ' s second one- goal loss this season. Despite the sour final game, the Notre Dame men ' s lacrosse program has a lot to be proud of. After a slow start, they completely turned the season around, and as the underdogs against Maryland, pushed the Terrapins to the brink. Stewart Crosland ' s impression of the season reflects this as he says, " Every game was close and we were one goal away from going to the tournament. Losing in our league was the problem. " However, after this Ohio State game that Crosland refers to, the Irish came back fighting. The nearly unstoppable team we saw for the second half of the season gives us a foretaste of great victories ahead for the men ' s lacrosse team.

Head coach Tracy G Tie ' s exceptiimal leadership would earn her the title of the 2004 Big East coach ot the year. Tliroughout the first month and a halt, the Irish went undefeated, triumphing over daunting opponents such as second-ranked Duke and sixth-ranked James Madison. Their win over Ohio State on April 10 ' ' ' marked the tenth consecutive season win and mo ed the team to number 2 nationally. Tliis was the highest ranking the team has achieved since the initiation of the program in 1997. While the team faced difficulties in the next tour games against strong teams like Georgetown and John Hopkins, they regained their iiKirale and ended on a high note with resilient wins against eleventh-ranked Vanderbilt and thirteenth-ranked Syracuse. Finishing with an impressive 12-5 overall record and a 4-2 conference record, they then iTiade their second appearance in three years at the NCAA tournament. The Irish met Northwestern in the first round and held a 6- 4 halftime lead. Unfortunately they could not hang on and fell lO-S, ending their season. The leadership of the team was entrusted to senior captains Meredith Simon and Andrea Kinnik. Simon led the offense v ith alacrity and became Notre Dame ' s first women ' s lacrosse player named to the .All- American first team. She was also named Big East co-attack player of the year and was a first team All-Big East selection. Joining Simon in the offeiisive push were senior attack Lauren Fischer and sophomore attack Crysti Fcxjte, both named to the All-Big East second team. The defense was also remarkably strong, picking up ground balls and forcing countless turnovers. Kinnik led as the top defensive player for the second year in a row and was named to the All -Big East tirst team and the AU-American second team. The defense was also fortunate to have Jess Mikula, who was a second All- Big East team selection in her first season as a starter. Showing complete control and mediating between offense and defense, the midfielders were essential to every victor ' . Receiving honors was Big East Midfielder of the Year Abby Owen, who was also a third team ail-American. Finally, the defense would have been futile without junior goalie Carol Dixon, who consistently challenged shooters and cleared the ball with skillful handling. For the Irish, the 2004 season was marked with extraordinary success and advancement. A final ranking of ninth, a record of 12-5-0, three all-American players, and six players selected for All-Big East teams are just a few of the noteworthy accomplishments.

Three points away from defeat, freshman Stephen Bass determinedly staged a three-set comeback to hand the Irish their fourth Big East Championship. To cap off the team ' s successful year. Haddock, Scott, and Bass were named to the Big East all-toumament team, and Bayliss recei -ed the Big East Qiach of the Year award. As Big East Champions, Notre Dame received an automatic bid to the NCAA Championship Tournament where they were shutout by 19 Tulane in the first round. Haddock was the lone Irishman to make it to the NCAA ' s Singles Championship, where he was defeated in the first round after battling injuries. Tlie men ' s tennis team has prepared all summer through the ITA Circuit in hopes of preserving its Big East Championship next spring. Tlie Irish also anticipate the arrival of two key recruits who were ranked in the top 30 of prep school tennis players.

With SLX returning starters and five players listed in the top 64 of preseason rankings, the future looked bright for the Lady Irish. Led by senior co aptains Alicia Salas, Caylan Leslie, along with senior Emily Neighbours, the Irish competed with nine of the top-25 ranked teams. They received contriburions from every team member, including freshman twins Catrina and Chrisrian Thompson, who wasted no rime in asserting their presence. The Irish began their spring season ranked 2 1 " nationally. After dropping the opener to Michigm, diey gained momentum, winning the next 7 consecutive matches. This included wins over number gain 20 Brigham Young Unversity and number 26 Lidiana. The highlight was their 4-3 victory over 14th ranked Virginia Commonwealth University, in which Notre Dame handed them dieir first home loss since 1999. Victories by Lauren Connelly and Catrina Thompson helped snap VOJs 40-match home win streak. Over spring break, the Irish headed to Hawaii where Alicia Salas upset number 5 singles player Amanda Johnson of Duke. This was not enough, however, as the Irish fell to Blue Devils, followed by the Volunteers. Notre Dame then struggled through the second half of their schedule, losing to 9th ranked North Carolina along with numlier 1 1 Northwestern in a grueling five-hour match. Bright spots toward the end of the regular season included a victory over University of Miami, and Christian Thompson, who lost only once after March 28. Keeping with tradition, Notre Dame headed to die Big East Championsliip as the top seed for the eighth time in nine years. The Irish made it to the final round where they were defeated hy Miami 4-0. A highlight of the Irish season came when the women were invited to the NCAA Championship Tournament for the ninth consecutive year. They defeated Iowa in round one before falling to Northwestern in the second round. Tliis was the second close match that the Irish dropped to the Wildcats this season. Kristina Stasny provided the lone win for Notre Dame. The Tlximpson twins, the first all-fresbiian doubles team to reach the NCAA Toumiiment since 1998, kept battling to the round of 16, where they lost in 3 sets. Alicia Salas, named regional Senior Player of the Year, advanced to the singles chanrpionship round. Lhfortunately she had to withdraw due to a ftxit injury. Salas and Christian Thompson were named to the Big East all-toumament singles teams. Tliompson and her sister Catrina gained mention in doubles as v ell.

All the parents who had dropped their sons and daughters off in August of 2001 uere back on campus once again, this time for Jiuiior Parents weekend. The theme for this year ' s JPW was " And die Nominees Are, " a title, v ' l-iich according to Meg Harty, JPW Chairperson, references " the Oscars, movies, everytliing Holl wotxl. " More thcin 3200 parents and students attended the weekend ' s events, wliich started v ith the " Stw Studded Premier " Gala in die Joyce Center on Friday night. The gala was a semi-formal celebration to welcome all of the guests and to " emphasize family " said Harty. On Saturday, Notre Dame ' s different colleges - the College of Engineering, the College of Science, the Mendoza College of Business, and the Qillege of Arts and Letters - hosted workshops to give parents an idea of the topical academic experiences which their sons ;ind daughters had been through in the previous two and a half years of school. In addition, each dorm held a luncheon and hosted the parents of residents, l-ughlighting the aspect of liv- ing on canpus at Notre Dame. Saturday night was witness to the official JPW mass and the so-called " Walk of Fame " president ' s dinner, both including the current University Presidait, Father Ed- ward Malloy. The official weekend events concluded on Sunday with a " Roll the Credits " closing brunch, an acrixity wliich served as a fitting ending to a great weekend. Other liighlights of Jiuiior Parents Weekend includal perfor- mances by the Notre Dame Glee Club, die University symphony, and speakers such as past University President Father Theodore Hesburgh. Of course the weekend was filled with the usual , though miique, experiences which Notre Dame has to offer: trips to the Grotto, breakfast at one of the Dining Halls, iind the chance for parents to meet die friends of their sons ;md daughters. Many juniors spent Friday and Saturday night partying with parents and friends, showing their parents the typical Notre Dame weekend and of course getting to spend some time just having fun. By the end of the weekend, the parents who came to visit Notre Dame for JPW 2004 finally got more than a snapshot of their son ' s and daughter ' s lives here at Notre Dame. Students had the opportunity to introduce their parents to the people who have been so important the last several years of their life, to show the work and research which they have been doing in the classrcxim, and of course to give their parents the opportunity to experience so many of the great traditions, sights, and sc unds which only a place like Notre Dame has to offer. t?Y William GarTlai cH tiiff workiiiH al tlic cvait yut Jrcssa.1 up ,uij niiuinal the ihcmoJ sct.N at tlic " Star Studded Premier " Gala which was held thriiuRhixit the Joyce Center (in Friday night.

Tlie $64 million project was Ix-gun in Septemlxr 2001 by Hardy, Holzman and Pfeiffer Asstxiates of New York imd Los Angeles. Qie of the biggest obstacles the desigiiers faced was blending the newly constructed center with the rest of the collie gothic style of the campus, especially considering the design specifications of the building - the DPAC is actually built on seven separate foiuidarions, to allow for aiund isolarion in each separate venue of the building. Tliere are five major perfomiance spaces in the DPAC. Tlie Patricia George Decio Tlieatre is the main stage ;md c;in salt approximately 350 xxiple.

Keou0h Chariot Kace Sure, hill semester is abtiut ftxuhJl, fiilling leaves, and - if you ' re a squirrel - the last chance to hoard away a few last acorns before winter arrives here at Ntitre Dame. However, the 7th Annual Ka uijh Qiariot Race v us definitely a great event to start tlie schcxil yciir. Tlie chariot race is Keough ' s first big e ent ot the semester, and the donii commissioners made sure diat die event would be a manorable one; both for their dorm and Notre Dame as a whole. Noon signaled the beginning of what proxed to he a sunn , enjoyable afternoon at the fields between Keough and the Bookstore. Qimpetitors and spectators alike were involved in the race, as the crowd cheered for dieir friends. Each heat had two te ' an s compet- ing, and die vxinning team mo ed on to the next riiund. From the starting line, the chariots raced down the field toward the b;ick of Kei5ugh, came to m orange cone (which signified the halfway point) around which they maneuvered, making a 1 80 degrcx; turn ;ind heading back ti where thc - began. Tlie turn pro ed to be a litde trick for some teams, cxs more than a tew of the chariot drivers were thmwn from the cart as their " horses " left them behind ;ind sped oii toward die finish line. There were more teaiw representing girls ' doniis comptiral to those sent by m;ile domis, however Keough ' s 7 entries - one for each section - assured a good race for all. In the end, the te;im from Howard took die victory in the girl ' s final. The men ' s tin;il saw the guys from Seigf ried pitted up against Keough ' s own section 4B. After a close first half, the guys from Keough were able to handle the turn with a litde more control, and slowly edged their way to a big win. -Tiile the race was die highlight of the aftemixin, their were several other diversions to entertain students. Good fcxxl, including pi;-a (naturalK) ;md music were enjoyed by all. For those who were itching to finally live out there American Gladiator dreams, a few minutes with the rubber jousting sticks seemed to do the trick. Of course, it was hard to miss those students who were caked in mud from head to toe after taking a dip in the mud pool, and more often dian not engaging in a litde mud-wxesding. In fact, the losing driver of each of the girls ' races w as carried off, gladiator st ie, to the mud pit where she was intrtxiuced to an ancient wonder: the total body mud mask. All in all, die day was a success. Keough walked away with victory (as usual), Howard won bragging rights for the rest of the year, and evenone else recei ' ed a complimentary trip to the Keough Mud Spa. • oi ugn tiui put up it teiit on tnc Xkxninn held- .in,i pnmdovj numivr | - f differait events for students to enjp ' on the day of the tnce.

As alwa -s, Fisher Hall ' s signature event was a huge sucxxss. 32 teams competed in the annual Fisher Regatta in the spring of 2003. While some teams were serious about competing, st ocking their boats with power-house paddlers, many d the teams were just out for a good laugh. The boats ranged from simple St Tofoam boards taped together (which of course is great for flotation, not so much for aesthetics), to boats assembled from random bicvcle parts, plastic pipes, and ever thing in between. The girls from Lewis could have quite easily won an aw rd for best looidng boat, but when it came down to it, looks of the makeshift crafts had litde to do with whethCT or not the boats w e seawttthy. A large crowd turned out on the brisk Saturday morning to watch that friends and dorm-mates sail - or swim - across St. Mary ' s Lake. In a head-to-head competition, teams were off to a shotgun start racing across the lake in their makeshift boats. A number of f aaors were taken into strategic consideration, ranging from the materials used to build the boat to the number of crew members. While there wwe teams with up to 10 students turned paddlers, most of the boats had three to four competitors fighting their way through the murk - lake waters. Among the most original boats was the entn- from St. Ed ' s. The - fastened a bicycle on top of their boat, put together so that the paddles would move when one ot the gu -s pedaled- Prett - good idea, but apparendy the teammate in charge of w:aterprcofing the boat slacked off, as the boat sank before thes ' even got a chance to start pedalling. Fisher ' s own boat did fairly well, but lost in a close semi-final race with Siegfried. The men ' s final saw Siegfried and O ' Neill face-off in a fast paced race, with O ' Neill emerging the victor. Twio Webh family boats rounded out the final girls ' race. Most of the races were prettv close, that is when the boats actually made it across the lake to the finish line. In fact, several boats sank within seconds of being placed in the water, to the disappointment of the teams which were ready to race, but one has to wxxider, did they actually expect die plywood and dua tape to hold its own in the water ' s of St. Mark ' s Lake?! In the end, " quite a fesv people ended up swimming their way to the odier side of the lake " said Michael Coogan, one of the six Fisher commissioners for the race All in all, the R atta was a success. From the competitors who braved the frigid waters, to the humored spectators, the race was entertaining for all. Several weeks of preparation on the part of the commissioners assured a snKXJth race, albeit a very wet one for some. Year in Keview VUM Each year, the residents of Keenan HiJl put on their now notorious sketch comedy show known as the Keenan Revue. Now in its 29 ' ' ' season of entertaining students, this year ' s " Keenan Goes Wast: Tlie Good, The Bad, and the Revue " was a humorous romp through such interesting topics as campus living, video games, and religion. The 2005 director, Dave Fotopoukis, and pnxiucer, Andy Grau, ensured that tiie jokes were a mix of crass and clever, ;uid l )th men mmiagcd to push the proverbial envelope to the line, and what some audience menibers may have considered beyond. Notable to this year was the fact that tickets, wliich are distributed free to the campuses of St. Mary ' s and Notre Dame, ' sold out ' in a record setting time of 23 minutes. Over 3,900 people were able to witness the Mitics of the Keenan perioniiers during one of its the shows three performances. The Keenan guys all had a part, whether acting in skits, perfomiing in the Revue Band, or being one ot the infamous Revaie dancers, whose yearly ' strip tease ' draws hundreds of girls to the show and puts the Chippendale d;mcers to shame. Tie show maintained a fast tempo, operiing with an energetic rendition ot the Darkness ' s " I Believe In a Tiling Qilled Love " and concluding with Journey ' s " Don ' t Stop Believin ' . " A niLxture of 80 ' s and early 90 ' s television theme songs, including such favorites as the " Fresh Prince of Bel Air " and " Where in the World Is Giniien San Diego? " , ensured a nostalgic trip down menion ' lane for the audiaice between skits.

" Knute Rockne The spirit of competition continually reverberates throughout the Notre Dame campus, but nothing brings out sportsmanship like the spring Bookstore Basketball tournament. While some prepare fiercely year-round for this annual event, there are always a handful who have more sense of humor than breadth of talent. Team names like " Slam Junk " and " Ninja Please " are just a few examples of the creative abilities of some students around campus. Beginning with 560 teams, the brackets eventually narrowed down to 16 teaiis who had proven their sincerit ' and hunger for victory. Each of the remaining games attracted fans all over campus, not necessarily for the love of the game. Many students just showed up to see their friends or relatives showcase their talent on the court. But whether or not the fans were cheering, each five person team was concentrating on only one tliiiig - winning. Tlie final game came down to just two teams. " You Got a Bad Draw " , comprised of mostly freshmen, won the championship gcune, defeating seniors who were visibly disappointed in their loss. While the winning team was predominandy tresbiion, lioth of the teams in the final game had varsity football players on their rosters. The number of participating teams in Bookstore Basketball has made drastic improvemait since its beginning in 1972. From only 53 teams involved in Bookstore Basketball I to over 500 teams participating each year for the past decade, Bookstore Basketball is widely recognized throughout campus and provides students with an exciting way to be as serious - or ridiculous - about basketball as they want to be. Whether a team is looking to take home the title of Bookstore Champions or simply to have some fun and laughs with friends, this campus tradition will serve every team ' s purpose. bv CUn Tit a CUflpvnai MenilxTs lit " liiiklc ' s Mullet " pin hiiiids in cclohnilioii • hut nut of : victiir ' .

Though tliey were celebrating after a fantastic victory over BYU, it was still a bittersweet moment. It was not until April 24, 2004, 161 days later that everycme had die chance to enter those gates once again. The 2004 Blue-Gold game allowed fans to have both one more chance to visit their favorite team and a gave a sneak peek at what was to come for the 2004-2005 fewtball season. The scrimmage is a showcase for the football team, a time to show the fans v ' hat it has accomplished in the past few months of practices. Tlie Blue team was comprised mostly of first string players. Qiach Willingham decided that putting them ail on one team iuld Ix; the liest route for the Irish because many of the teimi members had not been able to practice together due to earlier injuries. Injuries alsti had an inpact on the Gold team. Current injuries kept many of the second teani out of the scrimmage causing the Gold team to be mosdy comprised of third string players. Even though the Blue team had not worked together in awhile, it quickly reunited to completely devastate the Gold team. The game ended in a sound 35-7 victory for die Blue team over the Gold team. The game itself showcased Brady Quinn ' s improvements over the winter montlis. He passed for a total of 263 yards, including one touch down and 1 7 complete passes. These stats gave Brady Qutnn the Ctffensive MVP for the scrimmage while Tom Zbikowski ' s interception in the final play of the first half earned liim the Defensive MW.

Aldiough only twelve of thtise o er 120 boxers that step into the ring will emerge as champions of their weight class, each boxer is himself a champion of his body, his mind, and most importandy his spirit. Begun under the direction of legendary Notre Dame fixDtball coach Knute Rockne in 1923, the Notre Dame Men ' s Boxing Club has since become an institution at the university, sponsoring it ' s Miiiual Bengal Bouts tournament to benefit the Holy Cross Missions in Bangladesh.

A crowd of over 4,00C gathered on Soud: Quad to watch what Officer Tim McGmhy stated was " die best Dillon Pep Rally ever. " The show started with a video wliich residents of Dillon hall had made the previous week at Michigan ' s first home game. They were dressed as all out Irish fans, taking beatings and saliva from Micliigan ' s finest. After die video, die show started under die theme " Where in the World is Touchdown Jesus? " The show ' s antagonist (Lloyd Carr, Michigan ' s head coach) blamed Touchdown Jesus for the fact that he never won in Stiuth Bend. He soon learned (via musical telegram jester) diat Touchdown Jesus was missing. After convincing the least intelligent football recruit in the nation to come to his pathetic school by busting into the romantic Disney duet, " Something Tliere " with the help of a dancing candle and clock, die two of diem head to South Bend to try to find Touchdown Jesus before Monk Malloy. Meanwhile, Monk Malloy (who acted and looked like a monkey, though was never addressed as one) had a plan of his oun. He gathered Rudy, Joe Montana, and Regis Pliilbin together to help him find Touchdown Jesus. Tlie four of them traveled what seemed to be around the world but was merely to die engineering building, Badin hall, and Latin expressions. Monk Malloy learns of Touchdown Jesus ' whereabouts after Rudy wins a game show by default because Chris Webber tried calling for a time out with none left. Touchdown Jesus had beai boycotting Taco Bell and an unprompted JacLson 5 medley convinces Lloyd Carr to have a change of heart and take over for him during Satur day ' s game. Dinosaurs, George Washington, Wolverine, and Paul Honuing all cleverly add to the liilarity of the show. While Zahm, Alumni, and Keenan Halls all take ruthless blows, they are mtx-ked with wit ;ind intelligence, however none are ridiculed more tliLin the University of Michigan. Regardless of the playful jokes, the pep rally once again served as a means to unite die student Kxly as the sea of green in preparation for the fcxitball team ' s first home game of the season.

No Biz Like SKoW Biz After three months away from campus, the first weekend back at school has to be bigger, better and louder than the years before. This year, The Show managed to fit that bill as students were welcomed back by the annual on-campus concert. On August 27, 2004 , fans packed the JACXD to kick off the school year with perfomiances by Talib Kweli and Jason Mraz. By appealing to a mix of musical styles, the committee for TTie Show managed to attract thousands of students to the event, and lines formed early in the aftemcKin as ticket holders hoped to be granted priority seating as near to the stage as possible. Entering its third year. The " bigger, better, louder " Show debuted its new look and slogan after months of preparation by the Student Union Board, and the result was a successful " version 3.0 " of previous years. Geffen recording artist Talib Kweli began the night with hits from his past albums and included samples from his soon-to- be-released project, " The Beautiful Struggle. " Kweli interacted with the crowd a lot, and fans cheered loudly when he refused to continue with the perfomiance until security guards allowed students on stage to show off their dance moves. After wxapping up his perfomiance, Kweli handed the microphone over to the next performer of the evening, Jason Mraz. Mraz, like Kweli, continued the trend of bringing students up on stage when it was his turn to perform. Three fans were selected from the audience to sing alongside him, while the crowd enjoyed songs from Mraz ' s hit album " Waiting for My Rocket to Come.

P ujto by Billy Calkiglicr Year in f iew ga IpQiyikiiy It all started with one press reiense nn November 30, 2004: " Head coach T Tone Willmjzhani will not k retained tor 2005. " The statement shcicked many, relieved few, and left none unaffected. Hie news spread like wild fire tluoughout Notre Dame ' s student body. Immediate e-mails, instant messages, and cell phone calls made sure that no student was left in the dark about the change. Almost every student watched press conference after press conference in the days that followed. Tlie move was initiated by President-Elect, Father Jolin Jenkins, and while it was openly opposed by current President, Father Edward Malloy, it was supported by many alumni. Fans everywhere watched Dr. Kevin Wliite explain the process that would take place over the next few days. The next day, Tyrone Willingham held his own conference to say goodbye to fans and answer questions about his infomial discussions with Washington State. He took full responsibility for liis team, coaching staff, and the last three seasons ' outcomes (2 1 -1 5). He conducted himself with poise ;ind maturity reminding everyone of the great impact he had on our school. Regardless, it was time for Notre Dame ' s ftxjtball program to enter a new era. The following weeks would take the school tlirough a massive nationwide search to find ND ' s new football coach. The media tossed an unbelievable amount of names into the hopper, scime worth serious consideration and others who would ne ' er make it past SpKjrts Center. As die media and the Irish netwcirk tracked the location of the University ' s jet, the final list of possible replacements was the topic of almost every campus conversation. Qi December 1 2 , 2004 , the searched ended as Charlie Weis was nmiied Notre Dame ' s 28 head football coach. A 1978 iJumnus and current offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots, Coach Weis was the perfect fit. As he assembled his staff and began his recruiting, Irish fans everywhere began to back their nev - leader. Since the Patriots were still in contention for the Super Bowl , Giach Weis had to depend greatly on his staff to get the new program started on campus. His absence was forgiven on Super Bowl Sunday when he and his team added another Chiimpionship ring to his already astounding collection. Charlie Weis began his first full day of work on February 14, 2005 bright and early at 6£)0 am. He was not done that wtitn ' morning. Over 200 students were outside the JACC waiting to show their supptirt for their new coach. Qiach Weis spoke briefly to the students to let them know that he is going to push to the limit. Fans are confident that he will be the spark that this program needs to once again become the fomiidable force its legend prockiims.

Phitm fry Billy GaUc her ' UU iS Year in Kevlew a wm When Father Theodore Hesburgh stepped down as president of Notre Dame, he left his successor with two promises. " I will do everything to leave the University in good shape and then get out of the way, " University ' President Father Edward Malloy recalled Heshurgh saying. Seventeen years later, Malloy intends to follow the tradition his predecessor estahlishai. He announced Friday his decision to step down as the president of Notre Dame. The Board of Trustees elected vice president and associate provost Father John Jenkins to replace Malk-iy. He will become the 1 7th president of Notre Dame on July 1 , 2005. The Board also announced the appointment of current vice president and associate provost John Affleck-Graves as the next executive vice president. Jenkins, who praised Affleck-Graves ' election, said he was consulted during the search process regarding whether he would recommend Affleck-Graves, who will now oversee the University ' s business and financial operations. This follows a trend as both Hesburgh and Malloy entered the office with their executive vice presidents. Fathers Edmund Joyce and William Beauchamp, respectively. Though Malloy is stepping down as president, he does not intend to stop serving Notre Dame. " I ' m not retiring, just shifting focus. 1 have no intention of going anyplace else, " Malloy said. " Father Hesburgh provides a great model - he got away, he came back, he ' s done great things. " Malloy said he inlomied the Board at its October 2003 meeting of liis intent to step down at the conclusion of his current tenn in June 2005. But Malloy also said he wanted the board to ultimately decide if a new president should he named. Malloy said that after praying and consulting with others, he entered this week ' s meeting prepared to turn over the reins of the University to his successor. " You follow the spirit, you make decisions, you have no regrets, you move on, " Malloy said. The chairman of the Board ot Trustees, Patrick McCartan, said he told the Board ' s nominating committee in January to begin the presidential search process. Although other candidates besides Jenkins were considered during the four-month search pr(x;ess, McCartan did not identify who else the conimittee considered. " As Trustees, we all look forward to working witli Father Jenkins, " McCartan said in a statement. " The superb academic credentials he brings to the leadersliip of Notre Dame at this time in its history will be of critical importance to realization of our aspiration to become one of the great research universities of the world with a distincdy Catholic character. " Though Malloy said that tcxlay ' s announcement was bittersweet, he dtxs kxik forward to taking a sabbatical and e.xpects to continue liis writing projects and teaching. " I never would have imagined when I first took the job that 17 years later, I ' d still be doing it, " Malloy said. Malloy - who has served as Notre Dame ' s president since 1987 - is a rarity among university presidents, who often are replaced more frequently than at Notre Dame. In the past 51 years, only two people - Hesburgh and Malloy - served at the helm of Notre Dame ' s top office. " I ' m kind of die grey beard on the block when I go to presidential meetings, " Malloy Siud, later adding, " 1 think that all of us rcx:ogni;e, especially when you are a religious community member, that you live under obedience and what God calls you to do at a given momait to do as well as you can. " Malloy said when he officially steps down on June 30, 2005 he will probably shed a few tears when he departs liis fourth flixir comer office for the last time as president. But, citing a resiliency he enhanced as a varsity basketball player for Notre Dame during the 1960s, Malloy said he would rather focus on the great memories he had as president and what lies aliead. His Htth book is scheduled to be published this summer and Malloy is already writing liis sixth Ixxik. Malloy said he also hopes to continue teaching iuid serving on the boards of a variety of not-for-profit organizations. " I certainly w;int to iinitate all the success Monk has had, " Jenkins said. " I will work closely with Monk to leam what he has done to move this University. " During his tenure as president, Notre Dame completed die Generations campaign that raisaJ $1 .1 billion, increased student body diversity, redirected academic and faculty priorities to emphasize research, increased financial aid, made major capital improvements and increased the arademic profile of its students. While Notre Dame saw great success under Malloy, his tenure was not without its blemishes. In 2000, the fcxitball team received its first smiction from the NCAA after it was discovered that during Lou Holtz ' s era Kxister Kim Dunbar had illegally given football players money and gifts, which resultcxl in NCAA violations. Due to a struggling economy, the endt ' wiiient decreased dramatically in 2002 leading to the Board ' s decision to halt m;uiy capital improvements, including die new security building and post office. Additionally, all University budgets were decreased, with the exception of financial aid. But the numerous accomplishments during Malloy ' s 17-year tenure overshadowcxi these problems. " All one neals to do is to tour our campus, consult the rankings, examine the credentials of our faculty and die ()ntsiani.ling qualifications of our student h ] to realize whai he has accomplishal for Notre Dame, " McC;irtan said in a statement.

It has been a real pleasure to accompany you along the way. I know that the years have passed quickly and you have grown in decisive ways. You and I have much to be grateful for. First, of course, is the support that your parents and others have provided in making a Notre Dame education possible. The significance of that investment in your personal growth and well- being will only be evident to you over time. Secondly, you can be thankful for the faculty, staff and administration who have provided a cohesive and stimulating learning environment in which you have flourished. And finally, you have made friends during your years here who will last a lifetime. This group of peers have shared the full range of experiences with you from adjusting to college and charting your academic major to moving in and out of special relationships and getting accepted into grad school or the work force. I hope and pray that the transition to the next stage of your life will go smoothly. May the power of the Spirit of God guide you. And may you always keep alive your heart-felt ties to Notre Dame. This has become a place of pilgrimage for many. May it be so for you. Once again, congratulations and best wishes. Cordially, . ' (Rev.) Edward A. Malloy, C.S.C.
