"One of the main reasons I decided on NDMU is the tight-knit community that the school offers. The smaller classes have allowed for building close professor-student relationships. Throughout my four years, NDMU has created many opportunities for student engagement. I was awarded an internship at Rio Grande during my senior year, which has allowed me to better understand the area of business I’d like to pursue. After graduation, I plan on furthering my studies by getting an MBA."
–NARELLE HERNANDEZ, Class of 2023 Business Administration Major Spanish Minor
"I was attracted to NDMU because of its Art Therapy program. Once I decided I wanted to pursue art therapy and learned more about the program, my mind was made up. I feel honored to be a part of this community and excited to be among the first co-ed undergraduate class. As far as the admissions process, it has been extremely straightforward. I have had the pleasure of having easy access to an admissions counselor, and all of my questions answered in a timely fashion."
–MICHAEL TURNER, Incoming Class of 2024, Art Therapy Program
"NDMU is an awesome learning community. Our student-faculty ratios allow me to focus on each of my student’s needs and learning styles. Small class sizes also allow for the introduction of high-impact practices, which afford deeper learning to take place. There is a trust and confidence that lives in the relationship between faculty and students here."
–KENDRICK KENNEY, Chair & Assistant Professor, Communications Dept.
"NDMU is a community that encourages the practice of creativity in so many ways, across every major and field of study. As an English professor, I have the wonderful opportunity to teach stories (literature and drama) to students from all majors and disciplines. My students are engaged and curious—and that makes our classrooms places to discover and explore new ideas– and places where we can all learn, create and innovate alongside one another."
"As the Director of the Elizabeth Morrissy Honors Program, I have the honor of not only focusing on the academic side of my students’ lives but have worked to create a program that develops the entire person. In doing so, I see the mission come to life with each student."
–DR. EVELYN SPRATT, Director of the Morrissy Honors Program, Associate Professor
"The Notre Dame community is like family. In my courses, I strive to create an environment where students are comfortable to take risks, express themselves through photography, and make connections between the creative process and other parts of their lives."
"Education, athletics, and personal growth are all about opportunity. It is an exciting time at NDMU- full of new opportunities- and it’s a priority of everyone at the University to make sure that you have what you need to keep developing the best you."
