In a hurry for a unique last minute Christmas gift? The Home Depot is now offering customers the ability to include a personalized video when giving an eGift Card.

Fighting Irish Leprechaun and Friend

It is directly across the Hammes Bookstore. As stated on the Notre Dame interactive map: "The Visitors’ Center stands close to the Notre Dame … [Read more...]

Notre Dame Football Weekends – Bond Hall Concert

University of Notre Dame Marching Band at Bond Hall

Last year in late October we had the privilege to visit the campus of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana for several days. This included the Friday before a home football game as well as Saturday game day. It is just incredible how many different activities occur on those two days. For those interested in our experiences last year, with lots and lots of pictures and videos feel free to visit our Notre Dame page. This year, for the second year in a row, we had the same … [Read more...]

Notre Dame Football Tickets 2010

Notre Dame Foot Ball Tickets 2010

Last year I wrote extensively about my first ever trip to South Bend, Indiana to visit the campus of the University of Notre Dame and to also attend a football game of the Fighting Irish. What a thrill. We even now have a Notre Dame page here on DailyHomeRenoTips.com listing all of the articles we wrote about last year's experience with lots of pictures and videos. So this year Harvey (who went with me last year for a guy's road trip) and I had already planned to attend the weekend of the … [Read more...]

University of Notre Dame Football Fridays

Ara Parseghian Statue

We have been writing (and sharing some of the pictures and videos we have taken) all week about our experiences in and around the campus of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. Today we quickly (because it has been a very long day already and tomorrow is game day ... another long day) write about our activities on the Friday on campus before the football game vs Boston College. It rained very heard during the night and rain was forecasted for most of the day. However, we were … [Read more...]

University of Notre Dame, Luck Of The Irish and Fiddler’s Hearth

Gug and Four Horsemen Sculpture

We have been very, very fortunate ... some might say lucky ... on our trip to South Bend, Indiana and the University of Notre Dame. The first occurred when we received the Chicago Blackhawk tickets from Matt, which we wrote about yesterday. The second good fortune occurred when we crossed the border into the U.S.A. At customs, we ended up being assigned to a line in which the customs official seems to be taking and average of 7 to 10 minutes per vehicle. When it was finally our turn, we … [Read more...]

Touring South Bend and College Football Hall of Fame

President Lincoln Carriage

After touring all day yesterday on the campus of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, we planned to take a break and see some of the other sights in the area. We started at 'The Museums at Washington and Chapin', which included three different sights. We began with the Studebaker National Museum which had wonderful exhibits from the wagons they started to create when the brothers began in 1852 through  the Avanti which debuted in 1962. We spent all told about 2+ hours … [Read more...]

On The Road To South Bend and Notre Dame

Irish Guard and Touchdown Jesus

If you are reading article on its publication date, I should be on the road travelling to South Bend, Indiana to spend a week in and around the University of Notre Dame. It is a 7 to 8 hour drive from where I live east of South Bend, so I am told. As I have wrote previously, I have been a fan as long as I can remember. So, this vacation week sees me visiting for the first time ever the campus of the Fighting Irish, doing all the touristy things, and generally just trying to soak it all in. … [Read more...]

Notre Dame

Go Irish

I have been a diehard fan of the University of Notre Dame for all of my 50+ years on this planet. Like many Fightin' Irish fans, I had previously only seen the campus on television during the home football games in the fall. I never had the chance to see the GO IRISH painted sign on one of the walls within the Joyce Center. Pictures, like the one below the live WebCam of the Golden Dome on top of the Main Administration building (on the right) with the Basilica on the left, were only … [Read more...]
