A good academic institution, but that's about it. The culture is crazy strange. Notre Dame grads and students claim that everyone loves it, but when people offer differing opinions, they demand the dissenters leave. How is it strange, you may ask? Interactions between guys and girls are awkward, to say the least. People are nice to your face but the most vile creatures behind your back. ND students are the "best" hypocrites in the world: they're all "Catholic," but then most of them cheat, sexually assault a ridiculously high number of girls, steal (highest crime on campus, and considering the sexual assault problems, that's saying a lot), and lie lie lie. But if you ever try to bring any of these topics up, the response is still the same old BS.... "Love thee Notre Dame" my hairy minority a**.
Student 1: No one doesn't like Notre Dame!
Student 2: I don't like Notre Dame.
Student 1: Then leave!
Student 2: Why don't we just make it better?
Student 1: Notre Dame is heaven on earth! F*#& off!
Student 2: .....(sigh)

a college in south bend, indiana with a lot of rich wise ass whores who think that theyre all that, but if they were really all that they would gotten into yale or havard. it is also a very, very big gothic style cathedral in paris, france. it was also the setting for Victor Hugos "the hunchback of notre dame".
Notre Dame is technically not pronounced correctly in America, just like alot of streets, counties, and cities are pronounced differently in original French.

A University in South Bend, Indiana with an economically, ethnically, and religiously diverse student body comprised of rich, white, and catholic assholes that think they are better than everyone else. They think their football program, which rarely makes a credible, if any, bowl game is the best and most storied in the nation. Their fans hate the University of Michigan, which is superior athletically and academically to notre dame. Michigan has more overall wins, a higher winning percentage, more all time bowl appearences, more national titles depending on who you ask, a winning record against ND and has produced two heisman winners since notre dame's last heisman winner. Michigan also wins in the intangibles, as the Michigan fight song, The Victors, is superior to the notre dame victory march, which, coincidentally after one of the many times Michigan destroyed notre dame. Michigan stadium is also superior to notre dame stadium, whose design was copied and scaled down from the former. HAIL TO THE VICTORS! Michigan is also academically superior to Notre Dame, as we all of Michigan's graduate schools are ranked in the top ten and undergraduate programs like business and engineering are ranked in the top 5.
ND student: We are the best and most storied football program in collegiate history. I am also white, republican, catholic, and rich, and everyone who is not is inferior to me.
Michigan student: Shut the fuck up.

ND fan: I go to Notre Dame, and therefore I am better than you. I am also catholic, republican, white, and rich, and I like a football team that blows.
Michigan fan: No shit...

Notre Dame claims to be a top school in the U.S. Unfortunately, they do little to earn the reputation. As of the 2004-2005 school year, they have no computer class requirement; they have no required communications class; their required writing class only insists that students turn something in and show up to class in order to pass. Notre Dame is a place to network with a lot of people who have "made it." It's not really a place for a serious education.
The University of Notre Dame is no better than a typical state university despite the hype.
