Senior Fellows Program

The Senior Fellows program is an opportunity for seniors who live on campus to serve in leadership roles that focus on specific University priorities. Students who serve as Fellows will receive an annual minimum $4,500 stipend for 8 hours of work each week and have the opportunity to be mentored and developed as leaders across a variety of specific content areas. The program is open to all rising seniors living on campus for the duration of the 2023-2024 academic year.

Senior Fellow roles are available through the Family Resource Center, the Gender Relations Center, greeNDot, the McDonald Center for Student Well-Being, Multicultural Student Programs and Services, Notre Dame International, the Office of Student Enrichment, Residential Life, and the Transformational Leaders Program. Applications are now open and due by Monday, March 20.

Campus Ministry

This Holy Week, Campus Ministry invites you to enter more deeply into the Paschal Mystery and unpack Notre Dame’s Triduum liturgy with a community of fellow students. Paschal Watch is an on-campus retreat that takes place in two three-hour blocks each day beginning the evening of Holy Thursday and ending with an Easter vigil celebration Saturday night. Click here to learn more and to register - limited spots available. 

Take a journey this Lent with a fellow traveler and engage in an intentional conversation about the life of faith that you walk. Students will be paired randomly with another student and prompted to share a bit about their relationship with God. When you are paired up, you will be asked to go for a 45-minute walk, shaped by the scripture story, the Road to Emmaus. Sign up here - pairings and instructions will be sent out weekly. For more information, please email Mary Catherine McDonald
