Accommodating & Understanding

Alum, NDMU Class of 2020
Nursing - Leadership in Nursing Administration
Being an adult learner and coming back to school after many years, I found the faculty at Notre Dame to be so accommodating and understanding. It always felt like there was an open door policy here. You could come to a faculty member with any concern, and they would help you sort it out.
