Established in 2009, the women of Ryan have created a rich tradition and have won the Women’s Hall of the Year award twice, in both 2011-12 and 2013-14. Ryan Hall is known for its spirited campus involvement, competitive intramural presence, and strong sense of community. With signature events such as Wheelchair Basketball, Relay for Life participation and fundraising, and Caring Cats Clothing Collection (a campus-wide clothing drive to benefit St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Joseph County), the women of Ryan show their dedication to serving the local South Bend community. Each Tuesday night, their Priest-in-Residence, Fr. Joe Carey, hosts Ryan Hall residents for “FJ’s”, an ice cream and cookie social in his apartment. Though new to campus, Ryan Hall has fully embraced the Notre Dame identity, becoming one of the best and most inviting places to live on campus.
