The University of Notre Dame, a Catholic private research university, is located in Notre Dame, Indiana on 1,265 acres of land. French priest Reverend Edward Sorin and seven of his companions established the school in November of 1842. He originally named Notre Dame in his native tongue, “L’Université de Notre Dame du Lac.” Nobel prize winners affiliated with the university include cardiologist Dr. James Muller and Eric Wieschaus, who won for physiology. Notable alumni are TV host Regis Philbin; Knute Rockne, who was one of the greatest coaches in the history of college football; Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; football quarterback Joe Montana and priest Theodore Hesburgh. The school is part of the Atlantic Coast Conference, the NCAA Division I – FBS and Big Ten for ice hockey. Sports offered at Notre Dame include football, baseball, swimming and diving, volleyball and hockey. The official colors are blue, gold and metallic gold, and its mascot is the leprechaun. The motto is “Vita, Dulcedo, Spes” or “our Life, our Sweetness, and our Hope” and taken from “Salve Regina,” also known as the “Hail Holy Queen” prayer. Two movies, “Knute Rockne, All American” and “Rudy,” were filmed on campus at Notre Dame.
