Campus leaders welcome Class of 2009

Letter to the Editor | Saturday, August 20, 2005

Dear Class of 2009,

Welcome to Notre Dame!

On behalf of the whole Notre Dame community, it is my great pleasure to welcome you and express our excitement that you are here to begin your undergraduate years.

We hope that your time here will be of intellectual stimulation, fruitful inquiry and growth in knowledge and understanding. You will, no doubt, form lifelong friendships, and also, we hope, grow in faith.

May you soon come to feel at home on campus, and to love this place, as do so many graduates of past years. I hope to meet you personally in the coming years.

In Notre Dame,

Reverend John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.


University of Notre Dame
