Major News from Notre Dame

The University of Notre Dame made news today with its announcement of a major campus expansion. In fact, the University described it as

the largest building project in its 172-year history, integrating the academy, student life and athletics with the construction of more than 750,000 square feet in three new buildings attached to the west, east and south sides of the University's iconic football stadium, at a projected cost of $400 million. . . .

The plan features three new structures attached to and serving the stadium -- a west building for student life services, including space for student organizations, a recreation center and career center; an east building for the anthropology and psychology departments and a digital media center; and a south building for the Department of Music and the Sacred Music at Notre Dame program. The east and west buildings also will include some 3,000 to 4,000 premium seats for the football stadium with supporting club amenities.
