Realizing My Potential

Alum, NDMU Class of 2003
Physics
Notre Dame saw the potential in me as a whole person, when other schools didn’t. The SSND were a sort of secret force for good, helping me build confidence that I didn’t even realize I needed. The advocacy of Sister Eileen Eppig and Dr. DiRienzi, in particular, strengthened my efforts as I laid out a path to eventually becoming an enterprise level Technology Manager within the civil space and aerospace field.

Pursuing Study of Nuclear Fusion

Alum, NDMU Class of 2019
Physics
The individualized attention that NDMU's professors have given me, especially my physics professor, has made me a much more critical thinker with a well-rounded skill set. What's Next for Marion: Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands - Master's degree in Science and Technology of Nuclear Fusion (full scholarship!)
