Constructed in 1888 and named after University of Notre Dame founder, Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., Sorin Hall was the first facility designated by its namesake as a residence hall. Prior to 1888, all students were housed in the Main Building. Kick-It for Kevin is Sorin Hall’s annual fundraising event honoring former resident Kevin Healey who died his sophomore year after fighting a courageous battle with cancer. Each year, the men of Sorin honor Kevin’s memory through an annual kickball tournament to raise funds for pediatric, adolescent and young adult cancer research. President Emeritus, Rev. Edward “Monk” Malloy, C.S.C., has served as a priest in residence in Sorin since 1980. Past residents include legendary head football coach, Knute Rockne; athlete and athletics director, Ed “Moose” Krause; and Heisman trophy winners John Lujack, Johnny Lattner, and Paul Hornung.
